Book Review: Until You’re Mine

Until You’re Mine

*Author: Samantha Hayes
Publisher: Arrow

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…

If you are expecting or have just had a baby I would probably steer clear of this book.

The novel is told from three different characters perspectives, this is usually a writing style that annoys me, especially if I am finding it difficult to like or empathise with a character, in this case, surprisingly, it flows seamlessly throughout until the end.
The plot is intriguing and gripping, and the characters are well written, although there is an element to how some of the ending is tied up which I felt jolting and rather forced.
Until You’re Mine is a well constructed, well executed suspense novel that should keep you hooked until the very end.
The last sentence of this book in particular is both chilling and horrifying, further adding to the intrigue.
