YOU WILL BE MINE Book Review

"You Will Be Mine" by Natasha Preston, audiobook, 7h 4m

From Audible: Roses are red, Violets are blue,

Watch your back, I'm coming for you.

Lylah and her friends can't wait to spend a night out together. Partying is the perfect way to let loose from the stress of life and school, and Lylah hopes that hitting the dance floor with Chace, her best friend, will bring them closer. She's been crushing on him since they met. If only he thought of her the same way....

The girls are touching up their makeup, and the guys are sliding on their coats when the doorbell rings. No one is there. An envelope sits on the doormat. It's an anonymous note addressed to their friend Sonny. A secret admirer? Maybe. They all laugh it off. Except Sonny never comes home. And a new note arrives: Your turn.


This book very much left me wondering who done it the entire time! I was listening to the end of the book as I was mowing the lawn and literally took my foot off the gas of our riding lawn mower and stopped with my jaw hitting the ground! That is the best feeling in the world when reading or listening to a book! There were times in the middle that I was left guessing was it the suspect they had in mind? Was it someone we've gotten to know in this story? Was it someone that was going to come out of nowhere? I told my mom that depending on how it ended would determine if I would recommend it to her...and I sent her the link and said LISTEN!!!

The narrator was good. It's a female narrator and there are some male characters and she does deepen her voice but it's not cringy. I did find that I could listen to it at about 1.2 speed and it still felt like it was being said at a conversational pace (like that of a Gilmore Girl, IYKYK). If you enjoy a good mystery thriller that leaves you guessing, give this one a shot! I finished it and immediately felt it was a 5 star!

5/5 Stars
