Thoughts: I knew it! Well, at least I knew some of it. There are a few twists and turns in this book and I have to say that I had gone into this book not entirely sure if I would love it or hate it. Usually before I read a book I discover on Goodreads I have a look at the ratings and reviews of others. Until You’re Mine didn’t have the most amazing rating but I wanted to read the next book featuring DI Lorraine Fisher. Anyway, I wasn’t expecting too much from this one so I found myself pleasantly surprised.
At first I found the story to be a little slow as it set the scene and introduced the characters. However, once all that is established the story starts to pick up and the mystery starts. I actually think there are a couple of mysteries. Some of them are small things but they add to the story as a whole and paint an intricate picture in the end.
The entire time I was reading this book I was guessing at what the truth was and what was really going on. Some of the characters seemed a certain way and towards the end I had sort of guessed about some of the things and well when the big reveal happened I was kind of excited that I had actually managed to guess part of it. The rest was a pretty big surprise.
I won’t give anything away but the ending of this book is pretty crazy. I thought it was really interesting and let’s just say that the final line of the book had me thinking about it for a long time.
So would I recommend this book? Yes, I would to those who enjoy suspenseful thrillers. I thought this was a pretty good mystery and suspense thriller so I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
