The Watching – Book 2
© The Waiting Series by Elizabeth Burgess and Marie Hewes

The Watching is the second book in The Waiting series. This book surpassed any and all expectations I had! I loved getting to know these characters even more. There are a lot of main characters. So I suggest reading them in order. It will help you understand the back stories of each character.
This book starts with Millie Douglas. Millie is starting a new beginning after a tragic loss. Now in the previous book I despised Millie. Never in a million years would I think she had any redeeming qualities. Millie ended up being my favorite character!
It was very comparable to The Waiting, in the sense that everyone has an agenda. Every character is looking out for themselves and a lot of them are fueled by jealously, power, money and vengeance. All in all, there are a few stand out characters I love and are finally becoming the people you want them to be. 
This book will keep you on your toes. There are so many plot twists and turns I couldn’t put it down! Definitely a 5 star review! Cannot wait for the next book!
