While You Were Sleeping - Kathryn Croft || Netgalley Review

You wake up to find the man beside you is dead. He is not your husband. This is not your bed. What do you do? Tara Logan lives a quiet life with her husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and eleven-year-old Spencer. But her peace is shattered when she wakes in her neighbour Lee’s bed, with no memory of how she got there or what happened between them. And worse – he has been stabbed to death. Convinced she didn’t kill Lee, Tara stays silent, fearing the truth will rip her family apart. But as her daughter spirals out of control, and her husband becomes increasingly distant, Tara soon realises that someone in her life knows what really happened to Lee. She must get to the truth before they do. Tara made a mistake … but will one night cost her everything? A gripping, shocking psychological thriller, with a twist that will take you by surprise


Im not sure if anyone remembers but a while back i went on a real Kathryn Croft binge and read nearly all the books she has released because she is just a fantastic author and i can't beileve i never actually wrote the review to this one! However, after a quick recap of the story line i am ready to share my thoughts on this gripping thriller.

Tara wakes up one morning, she is not in her bed with a man who is not her husband - shes with her neighbour who has been murdered. Tara cannot remember the night before, but she knows she didn't murder him - so she leaves and keeps quiet. She just wants life back to normal. As we follow the story from Taras POV - we start to learn, there is alot of secrets and these are running the risk of ruining everything.

While you were sleeping is another story were i felt i couldnt really trust anyone, because everyone was out to protect themselves. As all these mysterys tumble out - we are thrown all over with the narrative and its brilliant, its a page turner from the get go, and nothing is as simple as it seems.

The characters were all well developed and as we learnt more about each of them, you felt like you were involved in the drama, each was fleshed out and created brilliantly down from Tara (the mother protecting her family) to Rosie (a real true to life teenager lying her way through all her secrets) While you were sleeping is by far the best read by Kathryn Croft (and i love her madly) it is a real hook you in and never leave until you get the answers kind of read, and when you do - you will be left shocked.

  1. I have been loving thrillers lately and this one sounds great. I love it when you don't know who you can trust in these stories!
