The only thing dumber than the inane, weak, non-surprise twist is that I kept reading long after I suspected I was getting jobbed by the author.

When a book has three characters and you know the bad guy isnt who the author is obviously pointing you toward, you dont have to be a whiz bang to work it out.

The dialogue repeated over and over, chapter after chapter, in circles that went nowhere.

This is the worst book Ive read in some time and I havent exactly been on a hot streak.

What if you discovered your husband was a serial killer?

I expect to discover that my husband is a serial killer. I WANT to discover that my husband is a serial killer. I mean, doesnt every red-blooded American woman?????

What I dont expect is . . . .

That is so poorly executed you can tell instantly what is the false flag . . . . .

The Book Review Café
There is nothing more satisfying than picking up a book that misleads the reader, one that constantly has you questioning each characters narrative, and Tell Me Im Wrong by Adam Croft does exactly that! With an array of psychological thrillers on the market and one of my most read genres I find it difficult to find a book that stands out from the crowd. For me a psychological thriller has to mess with my head, keep me gripped and most importantly hit me with that OMG I never saw that coming ...more

Wow this is one roller-coaster ride of a book that will have you turning page after page through twists and turns that keep the adrenaline pumping right to the very end.

Megan is a new mother struggling to bond with her daughter after many years of childlessness. She built herself up to having a son and ended up with a daughter knowing there would be no more. She is suffering from post-natal depression and her husband keeps taking himself off fishing leaving her with a screaming child. Despite

Tell Me Im Wrong is a sinister, psychological domestic noir mystery filled with secrets.

"Everyone knows everyone. Everyone relies on everyone. Its a finely balanced ecosystem which can be brought crashing down with relative ease. And this might just do it"

After a gripping first scene-setting chapter, the story is mostly first-person narrated alternately by wife and husband Megan and Chris, dealing with being new parents and the impact of baby Evie on their marriage. Megan is preoccupied with a

This book was just ok for me. It was predictable and a bit repetitive in some places. The ending seemed a bit random. I was very surprised to see such a high rating on this book as in my opinion, it is not a five star book. It was not a gripping thriller for me and I wouldnt recommend it to a friend but it also wasnt the worst book Ive ever read. ...more

I am amazed at the high ratings for this book and kind of suspicious.

The characterization is just not there. It is very thin, more like a book idea or outline.

Another intriguing read by Adam Croft. It left me with one question: is really possible for a person to suppress remembering one's own deeds? And what sort of deeds?! Do you ever know your partner?!

Not impressed

Was not as good as it was hyped up to be and too easy to figure out. Would not recommend

When I can read a book in two days it s a sign that it is definitely a five star book. I carried it with me, reading in the car, reading in the store, in the house (between housework, cooking) and of course, before I went to sleep.

And so the story of Meghan who believes her husband is a serial killer starts. She has a young daughter and when two young boys are killed, she starts to fear her own husband...The signs point to him....what does she do next? Her decision, whatever it is, will affect

Not Gripping Thriller for me

Mixed feelings

I have mixed feelings about this story. First, I absolutely hated the ending. I understand it but I didn't like it. I also had a difficult time with the characters. I really wanted to like them, to feel invested in them, but that didn't happen either. Truth be told, I had to force myself to finish it. While there was nothing wrong with the plot, it wasn't one to really grab you and draw you in. Just mediocre to me.

"Tell Me I'm Wrong" is yet another superb psychological Thriller by the self published author, Adam Croft.
The book is written in short, yet filled to the brim with informational chapters.
Red herrings are splattered throughout the book so I was unaware of the culprit until the very last few chapters.
An excellent book which I would have loved to have read in one go - unfortunately life gets in the way! A 5 star gem 💎 of a book which I highly recommend.

*Spoiler Alert*
I had difficulty relating to and empathizing with any of the characters. Unfortunately the author did such a great job convincing me that Chris murdered the two boys that when the actual murderer was revealed I was just no longer curious. I feel as though the first person points of view prevented adequate character development. I don't know what any of the characters looked like, but they were all just unpleasant. Megan's chapters were mostly whiny. Chris's chapters became

Being a mum, I have over the years, spent restless nights with all of the what if scenarios going through my mind. Weighing up all the risks of just letting my children venture outside but what if the danger to other peoples children was in bed next to me. Bloody hell! Now that is a terrifying thought.
Megan had struggled to get pregnant, the birth had been horrendous and even now she was still struggling to bond with her 6 month old daughter. She knew her husband had longed for a son and she

This author popped up with a sponsored ad on Facebook and his presence and books looked promising, so I was happy to find this one at my library. Evidently Croft is doing quite well in the self-publishing world. After reading this, I'm not sure why. The writing is trite and simplistic to the point of having some of the shortest sentences I've ever seen, the red herrings and plot twists are basic and easy to figure out, and chapter after chapter is redundant. Megs' chapters all say the same ...more

Tell Me I'm Wrong is actually the first book that I have read by Adam Croft and it certainly wont be my last it has left me thinking about what I have been missing out on that's for sure.

With two young boys brutally murdered all the signs of the murderer point to her husband who is a primary school teacher.

The author weaves a story with alternating chapters told from Megan and her husbands POV with each chapter leaving you wanting more. This is one of those stories that slowly builds up the

This was a quick read filled with tension and suspense. I figured out the one twist right before it was exposed. That is the sign of a good story, the timing and pace was correct.

Well done, perfect length, not drawn out too long. Some repetition in points in the story but I think it was necessary.

I would read more from this author.
