From the bestselling author of Between You and Me don’t miss Lisa Hall’s new gripping thriller.
Don’t. Trust. Anyone.
It was supposed to be a fresh start.
A chance to forget the past and embrace the future.
But can you ever really start again?
Or does the past follow you wherever you go…
I absolutely loved this authors debut, so was very excited to see she had another one coming out.
Steph and Mark have just moved to a new area hoping for a fresh start. They already have a cute little boy, Henry and Steph is pregnant with their second child. Steph is looking forward to settling into their new home and making new friends, but she gets more than what she bargained for.
At Henry’s school it soon becomes very clear that she is not going to win any friends there. The mothers all seem to be part of the PTA committee which Steph, after having a bit of a run in with the main member, decides it’s not a group she wants to get involved in, which doesn’t go down to well.
Luckily for Steph she has a gorgeous next door neighbour, Laurence and a lovely woman called Lila, who lives opposite to help her settle in and make her feel welcome.
The whole feel of the story reminded me very much of The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. It was obvious not long after meeting a certain character that things weren’t quite right and there was a reason for why they were being so friendly to Steph.
Poor Steph already has a few issues due to things that have happened in her past. When she starts getting strange things left on her doorstep as well as disturbing phone calls and emails, I was as creeped out as she was. With Mark working away, Steph is obviously nervous as well as scared and it makes her somewhat irrational. I felt so frustrated on behalf of Steph, she feels like she is going mad, which is what everyone in the area is also starting to think.
Tell Me No Lies is a gripping and nail biting read. The whole build up and tension is unbelievably chilling. My heart was literally racing as I turned each page awaiting the out come and wow, that ending! I disliked it yet loved it at the same time. A story that is seriously going to mess with the readers head.
My thanks to Netgalley and Carina for copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
Tell Me No Lies is out on the 20th of October and is available to pre order on Amazon.
