Reviews In Too Deep

    3 StarsWell, it was a 4 solid Star if it wasn’t for the last page! First of all, I love the cover! It’s really gorgeous! Second, When I started this book, I thought yeah I know what’s happening but after each chapter I realized that something’s wrong and my guess definitely is not true. So it was really unpredictable for me. Another thing that I loved about this book was how the author ended each chapter, in such a way that your jaw dropp...

    When it comes to good, tautly plotted and beautifully written psychological thrillers Samantha Hayes is my go to writer – she has a clever and twisted mind (in the best way possible) a sharp and intuitive eye towards character building and a tendency to have me reading throughout the night.In Too Deep did that again. Not that I was expecting anything less but there you go. If you like this kind of novel then you too will be up all night…A fam...

    “It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.” ----George WashingtonSamantha Hayes, an English author, has penned a gripping psychological thriller in her new book, In Too Deep that narrates the story of a woman and her daughter, whose husband and father goes missing one fine day and things start to fall apart months after the disappearance, and soon deadly secrets come knocking at their doorstep that can destroy the lives of two women. Sy...

    I have been a fan of Samantha Hayes for some time now so when I got my hands on this read I was torn between racing through it and savouring it and I did the latter and thoroughly loved it. It is the story of Gina and her daughter Hannah. Four months ago, Gina’s husband Rick nipped out to the shops and never came back. Nobody knows what happened to him. It is the kind of scenario that you read about in magazines and maybe even sometimes joke ab...

    I've been a fan of Samantha Hayes books for a while and was really excited to see this latest offering. So, here would be a good time to give out thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the ARC received.The book focuses on a tragedy beset by Gina and her daughter, Hannah. Their husband and father, Rick, went out one morning to the local shops and never came back. The aftermath being the tortuous journey of what these two women go on as ...

    This book certainly kept me gripped and I couldn't put it down. A taut nerve tingling story about a missing husband and some dark family secrets. Several times throughout the book I thought I had worked it out (my amateur detective skills unfortunately aren't that good as each time I thought I had "sussed" it I found out I was wrong). Samantha Hayes has a real talent for writing a book full of tension and twists. Thanks to Netgalley and the publi...

    No author gets my brain working more than Samantha Hayes! I really do get excited when I hear she has a new book coming out as she never fails to surprise me. As most of you know I am Mrs "smug I worked the plot out early" but I am always totally misdirected by the twists and turn of Ms Hayes intelligent and suspenseful storylines. I read this in a day, there was absolutely no way I was leaving it until I got to that final jaw dropping page.How m...

    I love the cover of this book, and the tag line "Your son is dead, your husband is missing and your in too deep" this works as it ties in with the title of the book. Gina's husband goes to the shop to buy a newspaper but never returns. This is told in two different points of view, which I always enjoy in a book as it lets you get involved with each character. I think it would of been good to add in the hotel owner Susan's point of view later on i...
  • Clair
    I read the majority of this book during a 4 hour train journey and it certainly kept me engrossed (and I was especially disappointed when the train arrived in on time at the point of a massive cliffhanger!). To begin with, the story feels like a little of a slow-burner however it is Hayes fantastic writing style to build the tension and before you know it the twists and turns are happening and you start to doubt the things that you believe are fa...
  • Kerry
    As with all of Samantha Hayes' books I thoroughly enjoyed it! Read it all in 1 sitting as I couldn't put it down.A thriller about a missing husband and deep dark secrets embedded within the family. Plenty of twist and turns to keep you guessing and wanting more!Thank you to The Book Club and the publication company for sending me this ARC in return for a honest review!
  • Sarah
    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book courtesy of THE Book Club on Facebook. I was already a fan of Samantha Hayes having throughly enjoyed 'Until You're Mine' last year. In Too Deep was just as gripping with plenty of twists and turns that kept me guessing. I do love a good mystery!! The suspense built up so well, leaving me with that great feeling of dread yet knowing that you had to keep reading "just one more chapter"! I'd really ...
  • The Book Review Café
    I can’t believe this is the first book I’ve read by Samantha Hayes, but it’s safe to say it won’t be my last! In Too Deep is full of mystery and Intrigue and oh what a tangled web the author weaves. When the story begins it seems it’s going to be a “run of the mill husbands gone missing kind of book”, but it’s anything BUT! We are introduced to Gina whose husband is missing, she is struggling to find answers to his disappearance a...
  • Rebecca If Only I Could Read Faster
    I haven't read any of Samantha Hayes' previous books but I have heard about them and know they're well liked, so I was keen to read and review In Too Deep. The book started promisingly enough, but it continued to develop at such a slow pace that I got quite bored with it. The storyline itself is good and so I wanted to know what happened, which is why I didn't stop reading. And although I felt that it was well written I had worked most of it befo...
  • Sue Thomas
    I loved this book. Samantha Hayes has done it again. Events concentrate on an ordinary family torn apart when the son is killed by a hit and run accident. Then the husband walks out and doesn't come back. the effect on the remaining two members of the family are dealt with sympathetically. it is well written gripping and suspenseful. As tension mounts you keep turning the pages to see if what you think is going to happen does. There was a clever ...
  • Denise
    I always enjoy Samantha Hayes' books and this one is no exception. She has a wonderful way of making the characters very real and engaging so you can't help but read on to find out more and just when you think you know what's happening, you're taken in a different direction. In Too Deep is another captivating read that did not take long to read as 'one more chapter' was never enough. I hope Samantha Hayes will carry on writing books like this one...
  • Victoria Laughton
    Firstly thank you to Tracy Fenton and TBC team for the opportunity to read and review this amazing book, wow I feel rung out now I'm finished, really enjoyed this book not my usual choice of reading genre but it certainly won't be my last, The story is told from the point of view of Gina and Hannah a mother and daughter, this I think gave more depth to the characters as you were feeling first hand how they felt, a rollercoaster ride of a story wi...
  • kittykat
    Very disappointed with this book having just finished another novel by Samantha Hayes that I really enjoyed. Boring plot that moved sooooo sloooowly. The characters were uninteresting and you figure out the plot less than halfway thru the book which just makes it an even more boring read to the finish line. And the ending!? I don't get the last page? Is there a sequal? Was it Susan after all? I'm confused!

    This didn't resonate with me like the author's other books have done. It started out quite slowly, which is not unusual, but the Gina and Hannah characters were awfully whiny. Yes, I know they've had a hard time but this guilt trip/pity party stuff just annoys me at times. Why do people think their secrets are so much scarier than anybody else's? And surely at some point you have to realise that you just need to come clean, especially as the trut...
  • Lee
    What a great book and another winner from this wonderful author. Gina's husband Rick goes out to buy a newspaper and this small task will change Gina's life forever, Rick does not return. This sets off the story which has a superb plot, great characterisation and is one of those books you just want to keep reading until you find out what happens, of which I did in one afternoon. Full of tension, twists and clues that will definitely keep you tota...
  • Lesley
    I really liked how the author ended each chapter, leaving me wanting to turn pages!This was not 5 stars to me over just personal opinion/preferences!I sometimes read too much into stories and I do not want to give it away (for others who might like to read it) but I kept thinking how this was really pulled off!And that ending!!!! What did that mean????Recommend-Yes if you like twisty psychological thrillers
  • Geraldine
    I was so disappointed with this book. I've read some really good stuff from this author, so my expectations were fairly high, but in many ways it was a bit of a turkey.It wasn't a one star book for the following reasons. Her writing craft is very good - text that flows, dialogue that seems real, and an ability at least to some extent to give a sense of place. Also, the character writing was real enough that I formed strong views about the main pe...
  • Ingstje
    In Too Deep opens with a heated argument, some questions and a bit of pulling and pushing between 2 characters. The unidentified male unfortunately is on the receiving end of a hit against his head. Queue to the present where Gina’s husband is missing for four months already. He went out to buy a newspaper and never returned. It doesn’t take much to make the link between these two events, now does it? The author does not keep his fate a secre...
  • Anne
    In Too Deep is one of those books that the reader is really loathe to put down, the urge to read 'just one more chapter' is there, all the way through. The story is fast-paced, unpredictable and leaves the reader reeling from the hurtling journey that this very clever author takes us on.Rick has been missing for four months. He left the house to walk to the corner shop and buy a newspaper. It was an ordinary morning, he didn't take his phone, or ...

    IN TOO DEEP by SAMANTHA HAYESPLOT: 4/5CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: 4/5ENDING: 4/5COVER ARTWORK: 4/5READING EXPERIENCE: 4/5OVERALL SCORE: 4/5You know you’re in a safe pair of hands with Samantha Hayes and I’m happy to say that her new book, In Too Deep, is no exception. Samantha has always said that her interests lie in portraying how crime can impact on normal families and In Too Deep does exactly that: it takes a normal family, puts them through h...
  • Dennis Elten
    Samantha Hayes heeft het weer voor elkaar!! In too deep is een echte pageturner. Na drie delen uit de Lorraine Fischer serie werdt het tijd voor een standalone boek. De kracht van Hayes is dat zij van een moelijke gezinssituatie een bloedstollende thriller kan maken. In too deep is hier een goed voorbeeld van. Het verhaal wordt verteld door de ogen van moeder Gina en dochter Hannah, samen moeten zij de dood van een familielid verwerken en de verd...

    This is my first Samantha Hayes novel, and probably not my last. I am struggling with my feelings for this book because I liked it. Yes, I liked it. Therein lies the problem. I didn't love it, nor did I hate it. It starts very promising and the synopsis is what initially prompted me to read this. Your husband goes out to buy a newspaper. He never comes back.Months later, an unexpected phone call puts you and your daughter in unimaginable danger....
