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.

Any additional comments?

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

No Clue - Loved It!

I read between 5 and 8 books a week (listen) and it's gotten harder and harder to be "surprised" by a book; this one, I even had to rewind in parts to believe my ears! Loved it.

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

Worth the read....

This book took a minute for me to get into honestly, but I’m so glad I finished!!
Well worth the wait, the ending was great, esp the last line of the epilogue. The whole time I was skeptical, but my suspicions were correct- the way it was revealed was kind of wonderfully creepy. I’d recommend!

Definitely above average for Brit mysteries

I love to second-guess Brit crime mysteries...but this one - my cliche! - actually kept me guessing. Very fun.

I loved it. What a twist! what a bunch of twists! Just goes to show you, you don't know what you think you know. footnote, this writer has such a way with words... the narrator captures the spirit of the characters so intimately. perfect marriage of writer and narrator.

SO GOOD!!!

Great plot. Full of twists and turns. Narrator was pretty good, but sometimes it was a little hard to tell the characters apart.

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.
