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.

Annoying start

This book was odd. The main character made really strange decisions considering her profession. I think it actually would have worked better if she was an accountant or a lawyer or something. The entire first 2/3 of the book was spent being annoyed at her. It really seemed like some dumb romance story where the woman just makes stupid decisions based on what the man wants.

The LAST 1/3 of the book contained the twists. And they were pretty good twists, at least one of which I didn’t anticipate. They were dramatic, but not really believable. But did it make up for the annoyance of the first 2/3 of the book? I dunno. I don’t hate it enough that I want my money back, but my main feeling is still annoyance.

Meh

Good narration but the story was so drawn out and just an inner monologue that takes FOREVER for anything to happen. Save yourself the time and skip to the last two chapters if you want anything entertaining.

Just ok

The ending is a good twist but I really didn’t like the main character, which ruined the story for me. She inspired no sympathy and so I didn’t really care that things got difficult for her. Great narration though.

Tiresome

I gave up less than halfway through. Maybe is the audio format but was a slow, plodding story.

dont bother

slow moving...this was a disappointment especially when the reviews made it sound so great. it was not gripping, and I dreaded having to listen to it because I knew each chapter would be a letdown.

What a ride.

This story was amazing. Until the ending. It’s the ending where the story pulls multiple twists and turns an amazing story into an incredible, mind blowing story. I highly recommend.

It took a strange turn.

While it was intriguing, it went really dark really quickly at one point late in the story. All in all though, it was pretty good. too long of an ending.

Wow!

What a twisty storyline! I thought for most of the book I knew how it was going to end, and was I ever wrong! Loved the narrator as well. Will definitely be buying more books by this author!

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.

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!
