Summary

What would you do if no-one was watching? 

Rachel is afraid she may have done something terrible. She's sitting in a room, being asked whether she killed someone. 

She doesn't understand how her life has changed so completely. When she was younger, heads would turn when she walked into a room. Her children needed her; her husband adored her. 

But somehow the years wore that all away. She was so busy raising her children, looking after her parents.... She can barely remember the woman she used to be, the one whose husband told her she was out of his league. The woman she is now just does the laundry and makes the dinner, and can walk into a room without anyone knowing she's there. 

She knows that she hated feeling invisible. She knows that she thought: what would it take for you to see me again? What if I did something no one thought I was capable of? 

Can You See Her? is an utterly compelling and unputdownable psychological thriller, about how far you can push a woman before she will break. Perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, A.J. Finn and The Silent Patient.

Disappointing

I kept thinking I’d get to a point where I was gripped by the story. Only an hour left and I just feel I’ve already wasted too many hours on it and am giving up.

A woman in her 50s with many troubles

Without any disrespect intended, this is what the book is about. I doubt any man or anyone under 50, would finish listening as the main character is going through menopause and there is a lot about how she feels (whereas maybe women over 50 would empathise). It's a long book (considering the story) and it could probably have been cut by 1/3 and there would be no difference. Not the usual SE Lynes style book I have always enjoyed.

Good Psychological Thriller

I'm always wary when the publishers feel the need to include words like: "An Absolutely Compelling Psychological Thriller" as part of the title! It's normally a sign that this isn't quite 5-Star material and needs selling!

It was a good listen for most of the way through, not hard to follow, lots of intrigue about where it was going. That part was all positive. Then with an hour to go, it felt like things were all wrapped up, the twist was rather predictable. Surely there must be another? ...Without giving anything away, I thought that the final hour wasn't as good as the rest of the book.

The story revolves around the Edwards family. Rachel Edwards is in police custody being interviewed, murders have occurred and Rachel feels that she will soon be locked up as a result. The interview continues for most of the book as the truth gradually emerges.

Just wow!

I don't even know what to say about this book. I am a huge fan of S E Lynes and as audiobooks they are fantastic. I get lost in listening to every book. However, this one is in a league of its own. I seriously was so immersed into the character of Rachel, the feelings of empathy and love has struck a cord with me. She is such a beautiful character, all her emotions I could feel in my chest while listening. Honestly had me in tears, and I am a tough nut to crack when it comes to crying from a book. Of course the twists and turns are captivating as always with the talented S E Lynes. But the way greif and love is described in this one will stay with me forever I think. Just wow!

An exceptional mix of thrills and compassion

I loved this story - and it is a proper story, in that although it’s essentially a psychological thriller it’s brilliantly interwoven with the beautifully described emotions of an engaging protagonist. The story twists and turns til the end, and is movingly narrated. Highly recommend.

Wow!

I had this in my phone reminders list to buy as soon as it came out and I’ve just finished listening to it. It absolutely blew me away. S E Lynes is a brilliant, insightful author and the story is absorbing and emotive with a good twist. The narrator was outstanding. Thoroughly recommend this.

Fascinating story with an unusual protagonist--a middle aged woman. Her description of her life absolutely rang true for me. Kept me guessing. Off to read more by this author. Great narration, too.

Soooo much dialogue.

The minutia of someone's every rambling thoughts told by way of therapy sessions make up 99% of the book. Mental health issues are over generalized, and conflated. Do yourself a favor, skip to last five chapters.

Amazing...listen till the very end!

I listen to so many books and rarely ever take the time to write a review. This book get me interested the entire time. Without giving any spoils it was actually very touching and had me teary eyed. I did not see the ending coming at all! You may think it’s predictable at times but it might not be as predictable as it seems. The narrator also did an amazing job. I highly recommend :)

excellent intuitive writing

every woman of a certain age and every family member and freind at the stage of life of these charactors will see facets of themselves in this suspenseful story. beautifully written you know each charactor as if they were in your life. the narrator is stunningly talented and brings the confusion and palpable feelings of the main charactors into your own heart.....
