until you're mineMotherhood seems to be the subject du jour for psychological thrillers. If, like me, you were hooked on Gone Girl, the story of a pregnant woman going into meltdown, and The Playdate by Louise Millar, about dodgy friendships between mums, I highly recommend a new book out in June called Until You’re Mine by Samantha Hayes.

It’s being marketed as the breakout novel of 2013 and it’s by far the best thriller I’ve read since Gone Girl.

Claudia Morgan Brown is a stepmother of two who’s been through miscarriage after miscarriage. Now she’s finally about to give birth to her own first baby, she’s looking for a nanny. In steps Zoe – a nanny with no history, desperate for her own baby.

This is a genuine (and scary) page-turner about mothers and want-to-be-mothers who are not what they seem. There is a stunning plot twist – I couldn’t put it down.
