Review: While You Were Sleeping

While You Were Sleeping While You Were Sleeping by Kathryn Croft
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I found this book very easy to read, the overall plot was quite good, and the book well written, which is a must. But the characters were something else.
Tara Logan wakes up in her neighbor's bed. She's naked, he's dead. What on earth has happened? She can't remember anything, so she flees across the street to her house and family.

Enter her family: husband Noah, daughter Rosie, son Spencer and sister Lisa. Welcome to some of the most unrelatable book characters you've met. The husband is a cheater and the daughter is a born liar and a stalker. The son is quite nice, but don't get me started on the sister. You've also got the nosy, nasty neighbors, another stalker/weird character in Mikey, Tara's coworker and a detective that gives information to the suspects family

I know I don't have to like the characters, but if you really hate them (and I hated Rosie), then half of the enjoyment for the book is gone. For me, this is the kind of book that you literally devour only to finish it and realize some things didn't add up.

I received an ARC if this book in exchange for an honest review.
