Critic reviews

"Every mum's worst nightmare - Zoe is a brilliant character, and Samantha Hayes turns up the heat with Claudia's fears to such an extent that you can't help feeling the same terror she feels. Absolutely riveting, you won't want to put this one down!" ( Books Monthly)
"A tense thriller that will have you looking over your shoulder!" ( Candis)
"by far the best thriller I’ve read since Gone Girl… This is a genuine (and scary) page-turner about mothers and want-to-be-mothers who are not what they seem. There is a stunning plot twist - I couldn’t put it down." ( Read Make Cook)
"For any fans of Gone Girl, this startling novel is a must-read... a terse and thrilling read not to be missed" ( Psychologies)
"If you only take one book on holiday with you it has to be Until You’re Mine by Samantha Hayes. It’s a totally unputdownable thriller that will keep you gripped to your sun lounger until the very end. And just when you think you’ve figured things out, watch out for the twist!" ( Cosmopolitan.co.uk)
"I've always wanted a baby...it's been an ache deep in my soul for as long as I can remember, a sickness, a malignant desire..." Hooked yet? Give it a couple more pages and you will be. Hayes third novel is a classic cuckoo in the nest tale with a disturbing twist... This book is almost impossible to review without spoilers, so I won't. All I can say is, you won't see it coming." ( HarpersBazaar)

What a shock!! Amazing!!

Rarely does an audio book have me jumping around shouting as I listen to it. This audiobook had me gripped from the start and plot twist was fantastic. The narrator was superb and I never found myself irritated by her voice. Great choice.
I have tried very hard to find another book that comes close and they are all disappointing and lacklustre in comparison. I can't wait for more of her books to be available on here. Please release your other titles on Audible Samantha...I need more!!

Plot Twister

A riveting read and well audited too. Without giving away too much, this book really has you captivated. A word of warning though, quite gruesome in parts and it would be unkind and insensitive of me to recommend to someone who maybe sensitively affected or reeling from a recent miscarriage. Having said that though, full credit should still go to Samantha; for an engaging and thrilling fictitious novel from beginning to end. I hope you can enjoy. Thanks.

One of the best books I have listened to recently

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the twist at the end

Have you listened to any of Clare Corbett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Liked this very much

Would you listen to Until You're Mine again? Why?

No - I never listen to books again as a rule. I enjoyed the plot and the 'twist' at the end, so now I now how it all ended, I would have no desire to re-listen

What was one of the most memorable moments of Until You're Mine?

The final scenes, where the 'twist' was revealed (although there were a few clues building as the booked reached its end). The ending and explanation was somewhat improbable/ unlikely, but enjoyable nonetheless. I don't want to give the plot away, so I won't say any more but it was very enjoyable.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I can't pick out one scene more than any other. It was very well written and well performed. I liked the way the narration switched from one character to the other and the narrator did a good job of projecting the different personalities of the various characters.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Too tricky to put into a tag-line! But if I were to summarise, it is about what happens when the maternal urge drives a woman to take desperate measures...

Creepy and fast moving

Would you try another book written by Samantha Hayes or narrated by Clare Corbett?

Yes

Would you be willing to try another book from Samantha Hayes? Why or why not?

Yes, definitely. I love psychological thrillers and this was a good one.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I thought she was good

Was Until You're Mine worth the listening time?

Yes

Any additional comments?

There were a couple of moments when I switched off but mostly I was drawn into the story.

Rather tedious

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This audiobook started off pretty well and for the first half, despite the now rather tired psychological thriller setting, I was gripped. However it became rather tedious, farcical and unbelievable. At times it was well written but in places it was simple, cliche ridden chick lit. Also, I really did not like any of the characters and found it hard to summon up any interest in their lives.

Would you be willing to try another book from Samantha Hayes? Why or why not?

Possibly.

What about Clare Corbett’s performance did you like?

Clare Corbett is one of my favourite narrators and on the whole she narrates this well. However, the voice of Claudia really grated on me and the male voices were not quite convincing.

Do you think Until You're Mine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes there could definitely be a follow up. I think Samantha Hayes has prepared us for this by introducing the detectives Lorraine and Adam and exploring their personal lives.

One of the best EVER

Would you consider the audio edition of Until You're Mine to be better than the print version?

Both would be great.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could I would have.

Any additional comments?

This is a book that keeps the reader guessing all the way, changing their minds about the characters and their secrets. It is well written and paced perfectly. Please Audible....can we have some more Samantha Hayes, I know she has written many more but only the one on Audible.

Good Listen

I did correctly guess the denouement of the story fairly early on, but I enjoyed listening all the way to the end. A well written and thought out thriller. Clare Corbett, as usual, is an accomplished narrator. Recommended.

Nice holiday listen (except if you're pregnant)

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, but not the ones about to have a baby. It's for fans of books like Gone Girl.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I saw it coming early on and unfortunately think it would have been better to read because the voices gave away the twist before you're meant to know what's going on. I think this is the first time ever a thriller twist hasn't worked in audio.

What does Clare Corbett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love how her voice rose and fell to indicate tension, confusion, etc.

Any additional comments?

It's a great holiday read but if you've read other books in this genre you'll figure out the twist early on. Still, I wanted to see how it played out and that was enjoyable enough.
