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.

What the Critics Say

"A hell of a ride. By the time I reached the nail-biting conclusion I was a nervous wreck, the ending has left me speechless...one 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)

    "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!

    Story
    "Very much a run of the mill domestic murder mystery"

    The real mystery of the story, how the murder was actually accomplished is never properly addressed. I won't spoil the plot by going into detail on this. It is quite a silly story told in a humdrum manner. Narration is basic but doesn't either add or detract from the overall effect.

    "While You Were Sleeping"

    I really enjoyed this book and kept wanting to listen for extended periods of time (which is always a good sign!) The characters were believable (although two of the women arrange to meet in the vast area of Richmond Park, but they don't elaborate exactly where(!) Why are the people this particular author tends to portray always so darn moneyed (a detached house in Richmond-upon-Thames, South West London anyone?)

    Great stuff.

    Didn't like the performances at all. Really ruined the overall enjoyment. Story just lacks something. Main character hypocritical and annoying at times. Possibly better to read than listen to

    "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!

    90% really good, 10% completely implausible. Good characters and interesting twists and turns with just a couple of twists too many. I rolled my eyes a few times at the end, but I enjoyed it.

    This story could've been told in 3 hours rather than 9 long drawn out wasted hours of my life I will never get back. Narration was great story line ok, ending ok, but too long with little meat

    Story
    "Pretty Good with a hint of annoying"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I didn't hate the book, but I didn't love it. I will say I didn't see it coming (who the murderer was). I hated Mikey, and Leila which I was supposed to but there wasn't enough for me to by into the relationship between the main character and the cop. IT was just all right overall.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I think the narrator played a role in my not loving the book, so maybe a different narrator. I think a little more suspense. Also, the writer went on and one about somethings in the main characters head, which was too much at times.


    What three words best describe Julie Maisey’s performance?

    Okay I guess


    Was While You Were Sleeping worth the listening time?

    Sure
