Publisher's Summary

You wake up to find the man beside you is dead. He is not your husband. This is not your bed.
Tara Logan adores her perfect little family: husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and 11-year-old Spencer. But her happiness is shattered when she wakes in her neighbour Lee Jacobs' 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 flees home and stays silent, holding her breath as the investigation grips the neighbourhood. But as her daughter spirals out of control and her husband becomes increasingly distant, Tara starts to wonder if someone in her own life knows what really happened that night. And when the police turn their questions towards her, Tara realises she has to find out.
But what will it take to uncover the real story, and can she survive the truth? A gripping, shocking psychological thriller, with a twist that will take you by surprise.

"A hell of a ride. By the time I reached the nail-biting conclusion I was a nervous wreck, the ending has left me of my top reads of 2016. Five stars out of five from me. (I would rate it higher if I could)." ( The Book Review Cafe)

Another Great Novel

Kathryn Croft delivers yet another gripping psychological thriller with "While You Were Sleeping". I saw several bad reviews but I thought this story was well woven together! Definitely worth a credit!

Croft does it again! Outstanding British Mystery!

There are many times I prefer British books and this one is one of my favorites. From the beginning and continuing throughout, this exciting story kept me totally engrossed. It takes many twists and turns. I've listened to author Kathryn Croft's The Stranger Within and enjoyed it as well. While You Were Sleeping kept me listening as soon as I could find free time. The story flows effortlessly and kept me wondering whodunnit. Focusing on several particular persons of interest looking guilty, I thought it just can't be. So many suspects in this suspenseful tale kept my interest and this book is so well-written. The finale is a big surprise! I didn't see that coming. After I thought I knew who the culprit was more than a few times, I was wrong. Croft leads us on the trail off finding the murderer with more suspense and wow! Never saw that coming! What an ending! Never a dull moment; it never drags. Narrator Julie Maisey is superb as she reads with perfection, character's voices, without the annoying he/she said as I've heard in other audio books that is so exasperating. We know who is speaking, she is that good. Lesson learned: Always, always listen carefully through the entire audio sample and read the reviews. Both author and narrator are on the top of my favorites list. I've got Croft's Silent Lies in my wish list. There are times I enjoy mysteries from the view of the family rather than the police and this one is a flawless example. Extremely Highly Recommended!

Awful, slow, soulless and so far fetched.

Don't waste your money on this one. its more like family drama than a psychological thriller. no thrills here, just a soulless book and another author trying to make money after a one hit wonder!

Hooked from the Beginning!

While You Were Sleeping by Katherine Croft was on my Audible shelf for a while, I am really glad that I got around to listening to it.
This one did not take me long to get through at all, I was hooked from the very beginning 🙂

This is my first book by Kathryn Croft, and I am just sorry that it has taken me so long to discover her work!

From the get go I was involved in the story. How could someone wake up in bed next to a man and not remember what happened..especially when that man turns out to have been stabbed to death. Of course I wanted to know what happened, so extra points for starting off strong.
As the story evolved, I had a number of suspects in my head, but as usual I was completely off the mark with who the actual killer was. It was a complete shock to find out who did it, and it did not come to light until the third last chapter, which was really great!

As far as the characters went, I connected with the main character, Tara, I wanted her to find out who it was, and to prove that she was right about it not being her or the person that everyone else thought it was (sorry, no spoilers here!) I was on her side the entire way through the story.
The other characters were just as good. I cannot say that I didn’t like any of the characters – except maybe the creepy stalker guy! All of the characters were multi-dimensional and great to follow along with.

The narrator for this book was great, she had a voice that changed well with the different characters, I wasn’t getting bored with her narration which is a big tick from me!

For anyone who is a fan of mystery/suspense books, I encourage you to pick this one up as I think you will love it!

Thank you for stopping by to read my review of While You Were Sleeping I hope you enjoyed it!
Until next time, happy reading!

What a plot twist

Really enjoyed this book. I honestly was not expecting the twist towards the end. Definitely made it hard to put down.
