Follow Me by Kathleen Barber


Everyone wants new followers…until they follow you home.

Audrey Miller has an enviable new job at the Smithsonian, a body by reformer Pilates, an apartment door with a broken lock, and hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers to bear witness to it all. Having just moved to Washington, DC, Audrey busies herself impressing her new boss, interacting with her online fan base, and staving off a creepy upstairs neighbor with the help of the only two people she knows in town: an ex-boyfriend she can’t stay away from and a sorority sister with a high-powered job and a mysterious past.

But Audrey’s faulty door may be the least of her security concerns. Unbeknownst to her, her move has brought her within striking distance of someone who’s obsessively followed her social media presence for years—from her first WordPress blog to her most recent Instagram Story. No longer content to simply follow her carefully curated life from a distance, he consults the dark web for advice on how to make Audrey his and his alone. In his quest to win her heart, nothing is off-limits—and nothing is private.

Follow Me by Kathleen Barber


Audrey is an influencer with over a million Instagram followers. She moves to Washington, DC, for a new job, and attracts the attention of an obsessed fan. Now, she’s faced with figuring out who is her friend and who is her stalker.

Told from multiple points of view – Audrey, Cat (Audrey’s best friend), and Him (the stalker). Audrey is insecure and anxious, but she’s also somewhat shallow. Having so many followers makes her feel good about herself, and she enjoys sharing things online. Cat values Audrey’s friendship more than Audrey does. They’ve been friends since college, but are opposite in many ways. Cat stays away from social media and has something dark in her past she doesn’t want getting out. Him is an obsessed fan who follows Audrey’s every move online and in real life.

Follow Me is a twisty psychological thriller with plenty of suspects. Audrey seems to attract some creepy guys in her life – the neighbor, the ex-boyfriend, the co-worker, the new beau, and Cat’s crush. With alternating POVs and plenty of suspects, this is a fun read. Clever, suspenseful, and chilling.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
