You wake up to find the man beside you is dead.
He is not your husband. This is not your bed.
What do you do?

Tara Logan lives a quiet life with her husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and eleven-year-old Spencer.

But her peace is shattered when she wakes in her neighbour Lee’s 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 stays silent, fearing the truth will rip her family apart.

But as her daughter spirals out of control, and her husband becomes increasingly distant, Tara soon realises that someone in her life knows what really happened to Lee. She must get to the truth before they do.

Tara made a mistake … but will one night cost her everything?


This is a tense read.

Tara finds herself in a dilemma when she wakes in her neighbours bed, naked. But, that is the least of her concerns, because Lee is dead and covered in blood.

She cannot remember all the details and suddenly her life is turned upside down, even more than it has has been.

Her seventeen year old daughter is wayward, trying to find herself and her own way in life, her sister doesn’t know whether she should settle down with her very attentive new boyfriend and her contrite philandering husband is now accused of Lee’s murder.

I loved Kathryn Croft’s books. Her stories are fabulous page-turners and for me, this one was a ‘one sit read’

When the killer is made known, While You Were Sleeping changes from a whodunnit into a tale of jealousy, greed and betrayal. Every character is a suspect, which makes this a taut, complex and addictive read.

The suspense is thrilling, the plot is pacy and the ending leave you reeling.

Croft knows a thing or two about writing psychological thrillers and this, her fifth novel, is her best one yet.
