Mine by Casey Kelleher – review.


Rebecca Dawson lives a life that many women want – married to wealthy, handsome businessman Jamie and new mum to beautiful daughter, Ella, she thinks nothing can burst her bubble. Until a series of sinister events leaves Rebecca convinced that she is being stalked. While her only priority is keeping Ella safe, Rebecca knows that this might be more than coincidence, and fears that her past is back to haunt her. Because somebody knows what she did. They are watching her, tormenting her and soon they are going to make her pay.

While she hides her past, Rebecca finds herself unable to trust anyone, not even her husband, Jamie. Because Jamie is keeping secrets too. Is Jamie gas-lighting Rebecca into thinking she is going mad, in a bid to cover up his own sordid lies? Or is someone more sinister seeking their revenge?

About the author

I was born in Cuckfield, West Sussex, and i grew up as an avid reader.

Whilst working as a beauty therapist and bringing up our three children together with my husband, I penned my debut novel Rotten to the Core. Its success meant that I could give up my day job and concentrate on writing full time. I have since written twelve books. (all listed below)

If you click the yellow ‘follow’ button, Amazon will send you an email when I have a new release, or if there’s a special deal you might be interested in. It’s the best way to make sure you never miss a book! I love connecting with my readers, and there are plenty of ways you can get in touch.

My thoughts

This is one severely fantastic psychological thriller! It’s literally unputdownable. We have secrets, lies, gaslighting – so much tension. As described in the blurb, Rebecca is the new bride and mother, and I felt her pain as she navigated her way through the first few weeks of motherhood. New baby, new home, new husband – what could go wrong? Everything. I mean, being a new mother is a time in life where a woman can feel at her most emotionally vulnerable. I appreciated the enormity of Rebecca’s situation and her less than supportive husband was upsetting me as the reader.

There are so many spine-tingling, creepy, moments and they don’t stop. Just as I thought it was okay to breathe, I found myself holding my breath again. There’s so much action too and it’s startling, fairly graphic and really propels the story at breakneck speed. In my view, there’s nothing scarier than the thought of losing your sanity, and watching Rebecca suffer through what was happening to her certainly kept me glued to the pages.

It’s a twisty read that had me tricked as I constantly second guessed what was happening. Everyone was under suspicion and I had no idea which of the characters could be trusted.

This is a definite recommend for psychological thriller lovers and it has a mega ending. Make sure you have the day free when you start this novel, it’s definitely a one-sitting-read!


Thanks for reading!
