While You Were Sleeping by Kathryn Croft



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.

Will engross fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors, and The Girl on the Train.


My Review – 3 stars

I have enjoyed the previous books from this author. And I’m not saying I didn’t like it, because I did. It did intrigue me, but it didn’t grab me like the others, and I think it dragged on a bit. I think the pace was quite slow and a bit repetitive, and consequently it took me a week to read it.

I found the character of Rosie incredibly annoying. The constant lies were ridiculous. Every conversation between her and Tara seemed the same.

It seemed everyone was a possible suspect, but no evidence pointed toward anything for certain. There was a lot of lying and secrets throughout, but we found out in the end.

Make your own mind up, but it was a bit flat for me.

Thanks to the publishers, Bookouture, and NetGalley for the copy in return for an honest review.
