I did it all for you…
Cara’s boyfriend is dead.
When fingers start pointing at her, she knows she’s in more trouble than she originally thought. Because Cara can see that something isn’t right.
As her carefully constructed life begins to crumble, Cara isn’t sure who she is anymore.
But maybe that’s exactly what someone wants her to think…
As you lay Sleeping is from my favourite genre Mystery and Thriller so any book I read from this genre, I do it with a lot of expectations and I would say, this book did meet all of them.
Cara’s boyfriend Joe dies the day she and Joe decide to break up. Initially Cara thought that he died due to drug overdose, but the detective in charge is not easily convinced and suspects foul play. Ryan, Cara’s old acquaintance arrives, he befriends Cara again and soon they go on murderer hunting together.
The story is quite unpredictable. The clues that they get are very unlikely ones, something that I had not heard off before. So it kept my interest totally glued to this novel. From the time Cara and Ryan start murderer hunting together, it was really difficult to keep down the novel and I just wanted to keep on turning the pages and read more
“My legs kicked out and my arms flailed as my body plummeted into the water. My breath caught in my throat.”~Cara
I liked both Cara and Ryan’s character. Also another thing I want to say, is that this book also provides an insight into the teen life, their superficial friendships and their desire to fit in. This novel also had a sweet and cute teenage love story, which was another plus point for me, given that I am a person who likes a bit of romance in Mystery novel.
Overall I would say that I don’t have any complaints, this novel is very engaging and I absolutely recommend it to all mystery lovers.
