#review Tell Me A Secret by Samantha Hayes @bookouture


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…?


Well well well. Bravo, Ms. Samatha Hayes. Bravo.

What an unexpected little gem of a psychological thriller. (I downloaded this book on a whim and this has now become a must read author for me!) I am actually blown away by this one – such a fun, twisty read and I have whiplash from all the twists and turns, all of which I did not see coming from a mile away, I’d like to happily add!

There were red flags all over the place from the word go but I am very pleased to report that this one stumped me big time. I love it when I book takes my hunches and flips them around on me and is like HA! You are so wrong!

This was well written, engaging, entertaining ride. Definitely recommend to fans of the psychological thriller and happy to say it’s on sale tomorrow!

Thanks so much to Bookouture for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
