Publisher's Summary

Tell her all your secrets, and she’ll tell you all her lies....

Everything in Lorna’s life runs like clockwork, from her six a.m. run to the strict 60 minute counselling sessions she gives. It’s the only way she can deal with the terrible secret she carries.

When a new client arrives for his first appointment, Lorna feels her perfect life unravel in a matter of seconds. It’s Andrew, the man she’s spent the last year desperately trying to forget. It seems he can’t forget her either....

Against her better judgment, she anonymously contacts him on a dating site. Messaging him could mean the end of her marriage and her career, but she needs to know if his motives are genuine.

When Andrew is found dead in his home, grief quickly turns to fear when messages from him continue to arrive on Lorna’s phone. Somebody knows her secret and wants to use it to destroy everything she has.

Will she risk her family and her sanity to keep her secret? Will she risk her life?

If you love twisty psychological thrillers that get under your skin, like The Girl on the Train, I Let You Go, or anything by Louise Jensen, you’ll be utterly blown away by the jaw-dropping lies in Tell Me A Secret.

Thos was a weird one...

Not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it.
I'm not sorry I listened to it, but as a fan of psychological thrillers, I'm not sure I can recommend it either. I feel like any true review would be a spoiler so I will leave it at this

Wow! And to think I almost returned this one!

It was slow at the start but a terrific read ... so many messages about how guilt & betrayal can destroy you ... then the end ... OMG. Never saw that coming!

Too long and repetitive

The constant overwrought dialogue to get to the point could have been a lot shorter. I also thought it was a bit hard to follow in parts. The ending was the best part of the whole book. Not worth all that whining from the main character though.

So slow

I can’t even get through this book. It’s so slow and isn’t holding my interest. It gets great reviews, but I’m just not able to hang in there.

Confusing

This book was very confusing at times and boring at other times. I finished it but, I’m so glad it’s over!

SO SLOW

Ok... this was one of the hardest books I’ve ever gotten through. I hated the protagonist... i hated the “twist” because it was a total waste of a twist. I hated the husband. I hated the lover. The only person i even liked was the daughter. The only good thing about the thing was the narration. So glad I’ve got this over with.

Surprised Me!

Excellent story line. Took a bit too long to get me there but the ending was fantatistic. My mind didn't go there at all. Will see what else I can find from this author!

Ludicrously over convoluted tale.

I have read other books by the author which I would recommend but this take over complicated psychological thrillers to a new level. Half of the book was very slow with endless repletion and unbelievable ruminations by central character. Followed by the next half running at a fast pace but with equally unbelievable plot twists. I did listen to it all but just to see if it had any saving graces. IT DIDN'T & yes very depressing too.

Very slow going

I loved the characters but the book really didn’t get going until the final 2 hours.

Depressing

What a terribly depressing and convoluted tale. I assume the author felt all the strands were joined up in the end. The whole thing was utterly unbelievable with one-dimensional characters. I stuck with it as I wasn’t allowed to return it.

Another pathetic female lead

I’m ‘sick’ of books where the pathetic reaction of the female lead to anything and everything is fainting/feeling faint, dizzy, feeling sick, being sick, retching, etc etc. It’s like reading about a Victorian heroine who has a delicate constitution

Better than I thought!

I read a few reviews that made me apprehensive about the book initially however I enjoyed this book all the way through! Good twists and turns but the conflict resolves quite quickly at the end which I had to listen to really carefully to understand all the pieces of the puzzle, overall still very good!
