Happy Thursday all! Thrilled to be part of the blog blitz for this fabulous psychological thriller that kept me up all night! Many thanks to Kim for the invitation and to Samantha Hayes for her wonderful words!💕
Tell her all your secrets and she’ll tell you all her lies…
Everything in Lorna’s life runs like clockwork, from her 6 a.m. morning 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 judgement 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.
4.5 Twisted Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5
Samantha Hayes… WOW! What a crazy ride you just took me on! I’d like to thank you for that and blame you for a sleepless night…. i’d suggest you go into this book completely blind, don’t read the blurb, don’t read the reviews (except for mine😉) this book was filled with twist that I did not see coming, and if you do major props to you! There were so many times I was certain I had figured it all out but NOPE!
Lorna was a serious hot mess… she was self-centered, manipulative, a liar, and a therapist… I found this quite amusing, just what you want from a therapist for them to be a bigger mess than you are….Lorna also has a big secret, she had an affair… now the man is back and she can’t seem to stay away…. her feelings towards this man were obsessive… so obsessive that it caused problems not only in her personal life, but in her professional life as well…. I kept thinking there has to be more to this, to cause a intelligent woman to behave this way….
The majority of the book is told from Lorna‘s point of view, with an occasional journal entry from her, and an unknown character named Nikki… Who is Nikki? Well I had lots of theories on this one, all wrong! Wonderful psychological thriller filled with all the twists and turns you’d want and an ending that was quite explosive!💥
Absolutely recommend two fans of a twisty psychological thriller!
