Publisher's Summary

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 the start, Until You’re Mine is a multilayered masterwork of twisted, psychological suspense. Fans 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.

Having trouble..

I'm about half through -- enjoying individual parts, but the narration makes it very difficult.

Narrator Clare Corbett reads all the characters with the same quick, breathless, inflection, and I found -- at one point -- I was deep into "Lorraine's" story -- the detective -- without realizing we'd left Chloe and Zoe, the mother-to-be and the nanny, the two women who are supposed to be at the center of this story. How we got into the police detective's tale I don't really know.... and I've already backtracked twice. I'll just have to figure it out as we go along.

And yes, there's another problem too: this is another narrator who doesn't pause between these various segments of the story, which makes it even more difficult to follow.

No, I'm not quitting. As I say the various story lines are interesting and compelling enough. I just wish narrators -- who are presumably professionals -- would take the time to make the story more comprehensible, not less.

I don't ask for a thousand voices, I can understand the difficulty of that. But surely just a momentary pause -- one second, maybe -- between the ending of one character's story and the beginning of the next isn't asking too much. Is it?

Creepy

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes,which is a good find for an avid reader.this book had the whole wow I wonder what will happen next thing going for it.

Which scene was your favorite?

The plot thickens at the end.

Creepy in general, but if you are pregnant or think you might be you might need a night light on if listening at night!

Not Up to Par

First of all, the same reader plays all parts and throughout the entire book, I could not tell which character's voice was talking which was quite confusing. This lack of clarity continued through much of the book. Secondly, the story was slow getting started and then gradually built to an interesting premise only to lose all credibility as it began to move towards the end. The storyline does keep moving, however, and keeps the reader guessing enough to encourage continued listening. This book had promise with its interesting and mysterious storyline, but it did not deliver overall. I need a storyline to have more credibiity than this one offered.

Good performance

Where does Until You're Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the middle

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

Surprised because it was difficult to follow the clues to this ending. It was almost as if the last chapters were thought of suddenly and then the author tried to fit it in the story line.

What about Clare Corbett’s performance did you like?

Very good narrator

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No there are no dramatic climaxes

Pretty good until the end...

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

Probably - just the last few chapters - because I think I missed something...or the author missed something.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the sneaking around the nanny did and her back story.

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

Well, honestly she has a nice voice and tone, but her character voices were not distinct enough and I was confused at times as to which main female character was speaking. And that may be why the ending was more confusing than surprising.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really, I wasn't invested in any of the characters. I especially didn't understand the in depth details of the detectives and their family issues. That whole section of the book could have been deleted and it wouldn't miss a thing. The move would have moved a little quicker if the author hadn't spent so much time and energy on their family problems.

Any additional comments?

The ending was a twist I didn't see coming and I probably would have been surprised, but the lack of a different voice for each character just made it confusing. It may have been a better read than a listen.

What disappointed you about Until You're Mine?

Tried to cash in on a couple of other storylines out there. Too similar, been there done that.

unsatisfying overall

Keeping certain details and parts of the story a secret is a common and often effective way to create suspense. In this book, the author keeps practically everything a secret, and the result is a somewhat interesting story that ends up feeling flat and dissatisfying. Because the two main characters are so enigmatic, I didn't really develop much interest in either of them and then the twist felt more like a trick or a gimmick than a genuine surprise.
Even though the story is told from the POV of two different characters, the reader used the same voice for each. While this helped sustain the secret, it also contributed to the confusion and the feeling that I wasn't being challenged or entertained, so much as deceived.
I listened to the whole thing, so it wasn't unbearable, more disappointing.

Great surprise ending.

Multiple character plot lines developing simultaneous then interweaving into each other adding depth to the story and the investment in those characters. Very good.

Eek! If you're pregnant, DO NOT READ!

What a plot twist! This is some crazy stuff here folks. Not for the faint of heart. Hard to make it through, but a well done story, just horrid content. Sheesh.
