'Addictive' Stylist
'Sultry' Elle
'Shimmers with suspense' Daily Mail
'Sizzling' Esquire

Summer in Paris. Leah, bored of tedious dead-end jobs, is intrigued to spot a job advert posted by the famous author Michael Young: 'Writer Seeks Assistant'.

After an unconventional interview, Michael invites Leah to spend summer in the south of France with his family. But as she begins her work transcribing his diaries of his debauched youth in 1960s Soho, the lines of past and present, truth and deceit, begin to blur, and Leah has to question what it is that Michael really sees in her.

A novel that challenges us to both question what we see, and what others see in us.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Tense and sultry... addictive... With a complicated love triangle, glamorous settings, a cast of enigmatic characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing right until the end, it's a genuinely thrilling summer holiday read - Stylist

For fans of Naoise Dolan's Exciting Times, this is a sultry antidote to our Groundhog Year - Elle 'Dazzling Debuts'

A sultry novel that shimmers with suspense and a strong sense of period and time - Daily Mail

A smart and sticky exploration of memory, class, ambition and desire - Chloë Ashby

If your hopes of heading to Provence this summer are looking in jeopardy, Francesca Reece's sizzling summer debut is a one way ticket to the South of France . . . As the title suggests, it's a story about the ways men and women watch one another, and the things we project onto people when we're only seeing what we want to see - Esquire

Unsettling, addictive, and razor-sharp, Francesca Reece is a devastatingly compelling new voice in literary fiction - Louise O'Neill

A sultry, summery book . . . devastatingly witty, compulsively readable . . . like Sally Rooney meeting Martin Amis in Paris - Francine Toon, author of PINE

Set to rule the literary summer - Sunday Times Style

Voyeur is a salty, sultry exploration of desire and aspiration. It fractures fragile masculinity and illuminates the traces of the past in the present. It is wry, funny and wild, yet warns us of the dangers of a singular narrative and shows us the importance of being the protagonist of your own story - Jessica Andrews, author of SALTWATER

From Paris to the South of France, with narrative strands that wind beautifully through London's Soho and the hot streets of Athens, Voyeur seems as though it may be your standard airport novel: scandals in sunny climes. But Francesca Reece's stirring debut is much more than the sum of its wanderlust parts - Harper's Bazaar

A smart and atmospheric debut, VOYEUR explores class, memory and the male gaze - Big Issue North

A gripping debut - Irish Examiner

An idyllic villa by the sea in the south of France is the setting for much of VOYEUR, a smart debut novel from Francesca Reece - The Gloss

“A good, literary beach read (for all those beaches we can currently visit…)”

Thank you to Tinder Press and NetGalley for a reading copy of this title.
I was sold on this from the minute I heard it described as a “sultry, summer read”. Since we haven’t been able to go anywhere in approximately... More

“An Already Overrated Mix of About Time and Love Actually”

Hugely disappointing. Nuggets of golden phrasing but overall contrived and over-written. I wish I hadn’t bothered.
