I haven't been this excited by a book in a while--but this is one thrill ride with an epic "WTF" finale!  The inside look at an influencer's "job" interested me.  The whole concept of working from home, as the main character and her husband do, was interesting.  Every time I thought I was ahead of the curve there was another twisty bit that outmaneuvered me!  

Emmy, the Instamum influencer, and her husband, Dan the author struggling with the sophomore slump, are not especially likable.  They're entitled and somewhat arrogant.  But I believed they love each other and their two adorable children.  The triple narrative threads create a suspenseful and fast-paced read. And the title is clever.

From the publisher:
Followed by Millions, Watched by One

To her adoring fans, Emmy Jackson, aka @the_mamabare, is the honest “Instamum” who always tells it like it is. 

To her skeptical husband, a washed-up novelist who knows just how creative Emmy can be with the truth, she is a breadwinning powerhouse chillingly brilliant at monetizing the intimate details of their family life.

To one of Emmy’s dangerously obsessive followers, she’s the woman that has everything—but deserves none of it.  

As Emmy’s marriage begins to crack under the strain of her growing success and her moral compass veers wildly off course, the more vulnerable she becomes to a very real danger circling ever closer to her family.
