Until You’re Mine – Samantha Hayes (DCI Lorraine Fisher Book 1) – Genre – Psychological Thriller / Police
Blurb: You’re alone. You’re vulnerable. And you have something that someone else wants. At any cost…
Claudia Morgan-Brown finally has it all. Pregnant with a much-wanted first baby of her own, she has a happily established family of two small step-sons and a loving husband with a great career. But she is also committed to her full-time job as a social worker, and her husband travels often. So when Claudia hires Zoe to help her around the house in anticipation of the baby’s arrival, it seems like the answer to her prayers. But despite Zoe’s glowing recommendations and instant rapport with the children, there’s something about her that Claudia cannot trust.
Moreover, there has been a series of violent attacks on pregnant women in the area, and Claudia becomes acutely aware of her vulnerability. With her husband out of town for work and her family far away, who will be there to protect her? And why does she feel unsettled about Zoe? Realizing appearances can be deceiving even in her seemingly perfect world, Claudia digs deeper into Zoe’s blurry past and begins to wonder – how far would someone go to have a child of her own?
Riveting from its very first pages, Until You’re Mine is a multilayered masterwork of twisted, psychological suspense. Readers of Before I Go to Sleep and Turn of Mind will be enthralled by this multilayered novel, featuring a twisted plot that ends in a breathtaking and shocking finale
My Review: This is the first in a series of books featuring DCI Lorraine Fisher and is in my opinion ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. This book needs to be put in the category of OMG and WTF as it is gripping, tense, thrilling and full of twists and turns. Highly recommended.
