While You Were Sleeping

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 eleven-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.



I love crime books but too often I am able to figure out who the criminal is before I get through the book. This one though the author did such a good job with her red herrings I never saw the real criminal coming! Croft has a great knack for hiding the obvious and wringing every emotion possible out of the reader before revealing the truth. I did not want to put this book down until I knew for sure how it was going to end!
