Either Side of Midnight by Tori De Clare

When nineteen-year-old Naomi Stone is snatched from her husband at knifepoint on the night of their wedding and taken to a deserted cemetery, she knows her life is finished. Drugged and disorientated, she loses consciousness as she lies in an open grave with a gun to her head. But the following day, she mysteriously awakes to find herself unharmed and secured to a bed. She's in a beautiful bedroom in a secluded cottage in open countryside. Only one person knows she’s there – the man in the balaclava who’s holding her, feeding her, revealing nothing. Naomi senses the unfolding of a plan. She should be on honeymoon in the Caribbean. Instead, she’s trapped with an emotionless psycho with no hope of escape . . . And his voice is chillingly familiar.
Who is he? What does he want? What's happened to her husband? Where is she? Will anyone find her before it's too late?

5 Star reviews...

"f you love mysteries this book is for you. Lots of twists and turns. Surprise ending, too. The only problem was I couldn't put it down and lost a lot of sleep trying to see what happend next. Definitely recommend."

"I am a keen reader, and will pick up most books that interest me from the blurb. A lot I tend to put down again to be long forgotten about. NOT this book though. from the word go I was gripped by the characters and story. Then just as I began to feel a sense of familiarity and comfort in the structure of the genre, It twisted and led me down a different path. I personally love stories to have a good conclusion that leaves me satisfied and with out giving anything away the climax was brilliant with just a hint of girl power leaving my internal monologue going "YES".  A must read for the summer. Light enough to lazily enjoy in the sun, but with enough intelligence to keep your brain active. Unpredictable, story with likable characters. A real page turner.  So get a class of wine, set your partner on cooking duty and enjoy."

Fan made book preview:

Tori de Clare, born 1970, grew up in Manchester, England. Having taught piano for 25 years in between being a full-time stay-at-home mum of four, she began writing almost five years ago. Having worked with children and young adults for so long, it seemed natural to write for that audience. Her debut novel, Either Side of Midnight, was intended for young adults, but has been widely accepted by an adult readership also. She intended it to be the kind of novel that could be enjoyed by almost anyone. She now lives in East Yorkshire and continues to teach music and write books and finds time for little else beyond family, friends and general fiction reading. Her busy life gives her an excuse to avoid ironing and all forms of 'keep fit'. The only working out she does is carefully plotting how to avoid gyms, possibly for the rest of her life. Daughter of two pianists, it was hardly a surprise that music became Tori's career.
Tori de Clare: 'Both my parents were good at two things: music and writing. Those two things run strongly in our family. My dad died when I was 18. In his spare time, he never had a book out of his hands and aspired to having a book of his own published. Having never had the chance to realise his dream, this book is dedicated to him and to my mum who taught me to play the piano.'
