Until You're Mine by Samantha Hayes

4 Star

You're alone. You're vulnerable. And you have something that someone else wants. At any cost...

Claudia seems to have the perfect life.

She's heavily pregnant with a much-wanted baby, she has a loving husband, and a beautiful home.

And then Zoe steps into her life. Zoe has come to help Claudia when her baby arrives.

But there's something about Zoe that Claudia doesn't like. Or trust.

And when she finds Zoe in her bedroom, Claudia's anxiety turns to real fear...

I have never read this author before but she definitely reminded me that I love a great suspenseful novel from time to time. Samantha Hayes' book Until You're Mine really made me crave more books of this genre so that should give you an indication as to just how good it was!

The story is fairly fast paced and has intriguing plot twists to keep the reader guessing and yearning to know what happens next as quickly as possible. I found myself reading late into the night because I was quite obsessed with trying to discover exactly what was going on. But just when I had thought I had figured it all out, the book took another unexpected turn!

The characters were well thought out and developed so completely that it wasn't difficult to believe in the story as each individual brought a lot of history and characteristics to the plot. The descriptions and dialogue were detailed and logical versus the implausible plot I was expecting. The book had almost sinister moments but it also had parts that were heartbreaking and unexpected.

I liked the fact that the ending was not something I could have guessed because I absolutely detest being able to figure a book- but I also did not like the ending, if that makes sense? It was a bit of a leap for me to go from one extreme to another but I won't say more because I don't want to ruin the surprise.
