After such a success with her debut novel ‘The Rumour’ last year a lot of readers were/are excited to read this follow up, I was one of them!
As an aside I loved that the rumour storyline is mentioned randomly in the book, this is because this new tale is set in the same sleepy seaside town as the rumour! ( Eastbourne without the excitement as its known! )
So......Astrid ( formerly known as Hillary! ) is a recovering alcoholic and is back living with her Quaker Mother, attending AA meetings and ...more

I’ve discovered that, while it’s easy to find a mystery or thriller that’s good enough to entertain me for a few days, it’s rare to find one that truly knocks my socks off. Who Did You Tell? falls into the first category, which doesn’t mean it’s a bad book. It just means that it isn’t making it onto my list of favorites.
Unlike some mystery and thriller readers, I’m not the least bit sick of ...more

Astrid is an alcoholic. She is focusing on her recovery. She moved back to live with her mother in a quiet seaside town in hoping to live in peace and away from painful memories she had in the past. She attended AA meetings and trying to get back the life as normal people and far from alcohol. Everyone deserves a second chance.
My second book by author Lesley Kara. I liked parts of the book, especially the trials of a recovering alcoholic and the AA meetings. I liked the author's honest portrayal of an addict and how every day was a struggle. The author showed great sensitivity in that.
The suspense was subtle in it and the ending was quite ...more

Then she starts feeling like someone is watching her...she smells Simon's cologne and then she receives a photo. Someone knows about her past.
I really like the writing style and ...more
And I'm completely correct to be impressed... What a fabulous book.
From the first few pages I could feel a slightly sinister undertone, something was rather unsettling but at the same I needed to know exactly what was going on. I had a few thoughts but generally was very happy to ...more

Overall I felt Lesley Kara’s follow-up to her first novel, The Rumour, had rather a lot in common with her debut and in many ways felt like a rerun of the story, with a thirty something daughter returning to live with her mother in the sleepy seaside town of Flinstead and a small cast of characters, each of whom on occasions could be construed as suspicious.
Thirty-two-year-old recovering ...more

I read and loved Lesley Kara’s debut novel “The Rumour” so I was very excited to read this one. All in all I really enjoyed it. The story follows Astrid a recovering alcoholic who is living with her own demons and secrets. She moves to a small town where her mum lives however as she soon finds out she may have been followed by someone who knows her secrets.
This book was full of twists and turns just like ...more
I really liked the way each chapter told the story and I loved that it was easy to follow with concise ...more
I didn’t have high hopes about this book, but the summary sounded a bit interesting.
It’s very slow moving in the beginning, and it’s boring. The relationship between the Astrid and Josh is moving to fast for my liking, and there’s no chemistry. The MC and some of the support characters are annoying. Nothing is really happening in the ...more
The story starts off a bit choppy and boring(ish), but as I kept reading, the more I found it hard to put down. It’s a very nitty gritty story that follows Astrid on her journey to recovery from alcoholism and we follow her struggles and memories and her path towards a ...more
Astrid was a very interesting main character which took me a while to like as she seemed very angry and prickly at the start. As the story continues and we get to know her more I warmed to her, especially as she seemed genuinely remorseful for all her past mistakes I found I wanted ...more
Lesley has crafted a well thought out and researched story that is compelling and does not shy away from the ...more
This was a good read. I wasnt sure if I liked Astrid or not. But by the end I did feel for her. What a twist though I didn't see that coming. A good but hard read dealing with addiction. 4*.
