Earlier today I posted a review for a book called What You Left Behind. Then I noticed my “currently reading” list still contained a book with the title What You Left Behind. My immediate thoughts were something along the lines of GO HOME GOODREADS, YOU’RE DRUNK, but then I realized that this was an entirely different book that I never bothered reviewing. So here I am and I’m really phoning it in on this one . . .

2.5 never really got into this one. A rash of suicides and a visit to her sisters, with her daughter Sophie, find Lorraine, a police officer embroiled in the mystery. Her nephew Freddie is acting strange and a grown man with mental issues is telling stories that do not agree with known facts.

Not sure why this one didn't click for me but I never really felt the suspense and felt the storyline did not flow that well.

ARC from librarything.
This book was... less than I expected. And that doesn't say as much about Before You Die as it does about its predecessor, the unexpectedly great Until You're Mine. That was a book I expected to be a run-of-the-mill, forgettable crime novel, and it was actually something much more interesting than that. So my expectations were relatively high for this follow-up, and it was - well, a run-of-the-mill, forgettable crime novel.

A special thank you to Crown Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 stars (Also purchased the audiobook version).

Samantha Hayes delivers a cleverly twisted, and evil psychological suspense thriller WHAT YOU LEFT BEHIND, a multi-layered riveting mystery, keeping you glued to the pages of this whodunit—and an array of colorful suspects, as we race to see how they are connected.

Set in Radcote, as the book opens (one month earlier), there is a person riding on the back of a m

After losing my reading mojo I decided to change from my usual genre and try a psychological suspense novel and the book I picked was Before you Die by Samantha Hayes which is my first read by this author so I didn’t know what to expected but once I got started I couldn’t put it down so I read it in one sitting.

I read Hayes' Until You're Mine which I really enjoyed, so I was eager to read the next book, What You Left Behind. This one started out a wee slow as the author was setting up characters, background, etc. Then it picked up and what a thriller! It was fairly evident who the killer was but it did have other twists I did not see coming. I enjoyed this short, easy read none the less. I favored her previous book but I like Hayes’ writing so I will continue to read her other books. 3.5 stars

Until You’re Mine by Samantha Hayes was my favourite read of 2013, I raved about it to anyone who would listen all year, so when I spotted this on Netgalley, I just had to snap it up there and then. I approached it with anticipation – would it live up to my expectations? The answer is, not quite but nearly. Until You’re Mine was just so good, that this novel was always going to be compared in relation to it, and although it is a very good read in its own right, it doesn’t quite match up to its p ...more

TRIGGER WARNINGS: Suicide, hate-crime.

Samantha Hayes's previous novel, Until You're Mine, is fabulous. Family-based paranoia, its creepiness is very affective. But what makes it so good is that it mostly focuses on ordinary people, who AREN'T in law enforcement and investigation. Mostly.

Thus what makes Until You're Mine stand out from the crowd is unfortunately missing here. I enjoyed meeting Detective Inspector Lorraine Fisher and her family back then, and I still like Lorraine here in Before Y

No matter how hard I try, I can never fault Samantha Hayes writing, not one bit, yet again she has blown me away with her story. I've been glued to this book from beginning to end.

I love it when things never go to plan, you think you have it all worked out in your head, even being clever and picking someone who is the most unlikely suspect then WHAM, you are confused again.

What I especially loved about this thriller was the fact its based around ordinary people with ordinary lives.

I read late, late into the night finishing this novel, so in terms of sheer readability it obviously scores very highly. Otherwise, though, I have my problems with it.

Senior cop Lorraine Fisher goes with kid daughter Stella to visit sister Jo in the village of Radcote, famed for the fact that a couple of years ago it suffered a spate of teenage suicides. Jo has recently been left by husband Malc; her teenaged son (Malc's stepson) Freddie is visibly under enormous pressure. Freddie's real keen on

When DI Lorraine Fisher goes for a visit to her sister, taking her younger daughter with her, it's supposed to be a holiday. But this quiet little town in Warwickshire was the scene of a spate of teenage suicides a few years back and it looks like it's all beginning again. And Lorraine's nephew Freddy is showing all the signs of being one of the possible victims...

Depois de ter lido Até que sejas minha em Julho do ano passado que estava ansiosa por um novo livro de Samantha Hayes. Antes que Morras trouxe o segundo caso de Lorraine Fisher e, mais uma vez, a detective acaba por entrar na história mais do que queria, visto que um familiar seu vai ser uma das vítimas.

My Thoughts

Lorraine takes a vacation to visit her sister Jo. Jo has a teenage son, Freddie, who is acting strange. While Lorraine is with her sister’s family, there are two suicides. She is unable to leave her detective skills behind and feels compelled to investigate the suicides along with what is going on with her nephew.

Told mostly from Lorraine’s perspective, we get to see the workings of her mind as she pieces clues together. There are a few chapters told by a mystery person and we

Until You're Mine by the same author was a terrific read of last year, so I knew that I would read the next book Before You Die pretty soonish. Did I enjoy it as much? It was close but not quite. Got off to a slow start so it took me a few days to really get going. That said, I read the last 60% of the book in a day! There's nothing particularly wrong with it, settings, characterisations, descriptiveness, all good. Some settings mentioned I knew, local area to me!! Always a thrill because it hap ...more

Another cracker from Samantha Hayes which I devoured in a couple of days. Full of twists and turns this book leads you down one path and quickly does an abrupt U - turn so you don't know which way is up. I finished this book with a big smile on my face as once again the author completely flummoxed me with a fantastic ending. Highly recommend all of Samantha Hayes books.

I read Samantha Hayes acclaimed bestseller Until You're Mine last year and really enjoyed the gripping, psychological nature of it. Her latest offering Before You Die is in very much the same vein, a dark, thought provoking story of country life and community where you are never quite sure what to believe.

At times I felt the plot moved a bit too slowly for my liking and I wanted more drama, although I am aware that any psychological thriller worth its salt needs to pace itself. The characters,

While I felt this story started off a bit rocky, it turned into a thrilling, and surprising read by the end.

I didn’t realize before reading that it was the second in a series, but it stood alone quite well. There are a few remarks that hinted at a prior story, but nothing that stood in the way of enjoying and understanding this story.

This book had several twists and turns, and in the first half, had several story lines that seemed very disconnected. I had a bit of trouble seeing the point to eve

I was granted a copy of "Before You Die" by Samantha Hayes from her publishers Random House, Cornerstone via Net Galley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I have read all of Samantha Hayes books and have loved them all equally.

She put together some cracking psychological Thrillers that have red herring swimming speedily through them, twisting as if through tight knotted reeds in a cloudy river.

Wow! Top-notch thriller! Highly recommended.

With a tightly woven plot, a pervading sense of menace, great characters, the addition of some wonderfully misleading red herrings, and a delightful rural British setting, Samantha Hayes has written a novel that was right up my street! Every page was a joy to read – right up to the delightful twist at the end.

I thought I would have no problems jumping right into this book. Yet, there was nothing intriguing about the story or the characters. In fact, the first scene with the bike accident barely made my heart jump. It was like it happened and then it was over. I even had to go back and re-read it again as I felt like I was sleeping. For me the story did not get any better. As I said the characters were boring and it did not help with a story line that I found lacking in intrigue. After re-reading sect ...more
