Unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and riveting suspense: These are the trademarks of beloved author Judith McNaught. With millions of devoted fans and ten New York Times bestsellers to date, McNaught is a writer whose work just gets better with each new novel–and Every Breath You Take is the book readers have been waiting for. Returning to the lavish Chicago setting of her popular novel Paradise, and revisiting some of that book’s characters as well, this story will captivate in inimitable Judith McNaught style.

High atop a snow-covered hill, the stately old Wyatt mansion is perched like a crown, its stone spires pointing upward, its stained glass windows glowing like colorful jewels. Such opulence means success and, surely, happiness. But on the eve of wealthy philanthropist Cecil Wyatt’s eightieth birthday, all the money in the world won’t bring back his missing grandson, William Wyatt. The only thing for certain: Foul play was involved.

The family, the police, the media–all have tried in vain to discover the young man’s fate. Now suspicion has turned shockingly toward William’s own half-brother, the rather distant and enigmatic Mitchell Wyatt.

Kate Donovan never dreamed that a chance romantic encounter on a tropical island paradise would tag her as a suspect in a high-society murder case. But after Kate tangles with the darkly charismatic Mitchell Wyatt, she finds herself cast in a shadow of guilt and mistrust. As the Chicago police tighten their net, it will take all of Kate’s ingenuity to clear her name. With her calm, cool wit, and the help of a man who may or may not be a dangerous catch, Kate vows to claim the life and love she desires.

    " First off let me say Judith McNaught is a brilliant writer and is one of my favorite authors...with that said let me go on to the reason I gave this book 1 Star. "Every Breath You Take" began surberb and I thought "Oh yeah, this is going to be a good one"...boy was I wrong! In my opinion this book was a disaster, the things wrong with the story and how it was written is so great I don't want to spend my time writing about them. What I will tell you is Do Not judge this wonderful author based on this novel. If you have never read one of McNaught's books please don't start with this one, instead try "Kingdom of Dreams" or "Paradise". "

    " Was very light reading. Love story & who killed him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ink | 1/14/2014

    " I normally love Judith McNaught. However, this was not a book that I could fall in love with. Somehow, it never fully captured me as a reader or lured me into the story. I know that most romance novels contain the element of magic (not literally) and having the unbelievable become believable. But again, this novel didn't quite work for me. I didn't think Kate was strong enough of a heroine (though I do think McNaught did capture how deeply heartbreak can affect one's life). Mitchell wasn't likeable enough for me. I get that he was the ultimate alpha male (solitary, stoic, rich, strong, strong-willed, etc). But I never felt like he become nice enough or vulnerable enough. He was a rake, but never a well reformed rake. McNaught almost got him there but then just missed the mark. Overall, I'm going to stick to reading all of McNaught's books because she's a great writer; I just might not reread this story ever again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 1/14/2014

    " Kate and Mitchell relive Judith McNaught's older books. This is basically a mash-up of Paradise and Perfect, from characters to plot to exact lines of dialogue. Those books are very good, though, and this book could have been, but the last quarter was rushed and poorly done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 1/13/2014

    " A very enjoyable book to read on a rainy day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/8/2014

    " I thought the secondary characters were done well. This was a very well done romance. Got to love those Irish authors!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Weiling | 1/7/2014

    " Another of Judith McNaught romance story... handsome man + beautiful woman... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarita | 12/24/2013

    " Ok - so there were some good and then not so good ratings on this book. I got one of the newer versions with bonus scenes included and that must have made all the difference because I LOVED IT! So be sure you get the updated version. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 11/26/2013

    " It was a love story with many events going on throughout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora | 10/27/2013

    " This was a very enjoyable book. Some things I figured out where it was going but the trip there was well worth the reading. I enjoyed the characters and interpersonal relationships. It was a good page turner that kept me interested. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris Prescott | 1/30/2013

    " Loved that characters from Paradise and Perfect appeared in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 9/7/2012

    " When a happy accident brings people together, another breaks them apart. Craftfully written, wonderful read. She uses the best and worst traits of a person, and makes them likable, and understanding. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Wadsworth | 5/26/2012

    " a quick, fun summer read.... read it in one sitting... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dalit Avnon | 4/13/2012

    " Good book to pass time and for whoever is in the mood for romantic escape... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CLM | 1/22/2012

    " Not one of her best but still hard to put down... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 sonalidalal | 1/11/2012

    " Like easy listening music, this book is easy reading. Book to read on a lazy day with mood music and cuppa chai for the company. "

    " Just loved it! Near the end i didn't want to end at all!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 10/6/2011

    " I would give this more of a 3.5, as it is not as good as Paradise. The connection between the hero & heroine isn't as strong as in her other book. The relationship didn't develop the way it did in Paradise. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tingwai Tang | 10/4/2011

    " Nice characters. Fell in love with Mitchell there. But a tad too predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami | 9/18/2011

    " Read this several years ago - but it was worth a re-read. Good mystery, good romance! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Davie | 8/20/2011

    " Interesting blend of the standard romance with a teeny bit of a twist. McNaught writes very well creating empathic characters although this particular story did not pull me in as much as others of hers that I have read. "

    " I haven't visited with this group of people for a while albeit someone new. Nice to enjoy. Warm but not too much sexual description for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/9/2011

    " I love the ending of this book so much - read it twice already. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Umiey | 2/21/2011

    " i don't really think i like this whole love in the first sight thing in this particular book. it's just lack consistency compare to other McNaught's books. i can feel that it also lacks the passionate feel of the character. or it is just me? overall it's ok i think. "
