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…?
Lorna is a seemingly happily married woman who has it all. A loving husband, a step son Jack and a daughter Freya. She also works as a therapist. Got to admit listening to peoples issues all day must take it’s toll but then Lorna is full of secrets herself.
Having pretty much the perfect lifestyle, I couldn’t understand why she would risk all that she has. At times I don’t think she knows herself. The chapters flick between certain characters but in the main Lorna. They certainly have you racing through the pages to see where the author is going to take us.
It’s hard to know what to put in my review as I don’t want to give to much away. I think the least you know before going into this story, the better. What I will say is that Tell Me A Secret is a tense and dramatic read that had me hooked. The pace picks up throughout and had me in a tizzy with how things start to unfold. With plenty of surprises in store, it certainly makes for an entertaining read.
