Okay, I can’t wait, I have to let it out.
I am madly in love with Jane Fallon’s latest novel!!! I can’t believe I have had Sweet Revenge forever and haven’t read it yet. You can be sure to see it reviewed very soon!
But, back to Tell Me A Secret. Wow!!! I am a die-hard fan of psychological thrillers, but this book seems to fall into a different category. The *OMG I want more* category? The *workplace mystery* category? Wherever you want to p...more
This didn’t have any romance in it and concentrated on friendships instead and how you should keep your friends close but your enemies closer. The story was really well developed and written. It even had you doubting everyone, who could you trust?!
I’ve read some good books this year but every now and aga ...more
One thing that was entirely different compared to My Sweet Revenge and Faking Friends was the focus of the story. Where the main aspect used to be romance and love, Tell Me a Secret focuses on friendships way more. It surprised me, since I didn't expect it to be the case but.. in a good way?

Holly has been given her dream job but her work bestie, Roz, seems to be faking her happiness. Once things start to take a turn at work it would seem that Roz isn’t that happy at all but no one believes Holly about the mysterious things that keep happening. Throw in Holly’s new lodger and the fun holly has with her best friend, Dee, things could get messy! As always Jane’s books are a fabulous read with laugh out loud moments and lines you read and identify with completely.
Thanks To netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest review
(I also realise this is a crap review but I hate people who type the full story line in reviews. My opinion is - just read it, you'll love it!!)

With thanks to Netgalley and Penguin for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.
Single mum Holly Cooper was delighted when she was promoted to Script Executive for soap opera Churchill Road. Her main rival for the job had been fellow co worker Juliet, but Holly`s best friend Roz had been been a loyal supporter. When Juliet found out she had not got the job she left early to escape the celebrations.
Holly was excited that her daughter Ashley was pregnant but i upset she would be a sing ...more
In Tell Me A Secret the author has once again created a wonderful escapist novel about female friendship and the problems they can cause. I liked that the book was set in the work place as I thought that provided lots of opportunities for jealousy and sabotage. Throughout the book the author skillfully weav ...more
The plot for this book has been different to the others I have read as it usually involves relationships/break up's/cheating but this one concentrated solely on work colleagues who are also friends.

A campaign of sabotage begins and leaves Holly on tender hooks as she tries to figure out who could be behind it. With the help of her friend Holly vows to expose the culprit.
This book explores how you may think you know someone and their character but sometimes they can have a completely different side. I loved how t ...more
It's easy for the reader to believe in this storyline, most people who have worked in an office setting have witnessed office politics at some point in their career, and it's not hard to imagine what Holly experiences. Betrayal is an important theme of this stor ...more

I do love a Jane Fallon novel - it's no secret. I also love the fact that my year seems to start and end with one of her novels. I have some of her other titles waiting on my shelf and they are saved for holidays or weekends or when I need that special 'go to' author when I need a great, page turning read.
Tell Me A Secret was no disappointment and as always, I was hooked from the beginning and raced through the chapters. Fallon has a real talent for capturing vivid and engaging characters who f ...more
