Best friends Holly and Roz tell each other everything.
So when Holly gets a shot at her dream job after putting everything on hold to raise her daughter, she assumes Roz will be waiting to pop the champagne.
But is she just imagining things or is Roz not quite as happy as she should be?
And now she thinks about it, a few things don’t quite add up…
Perhaps it was a mistake to tell Roz all her secrets.
Because it takes two to tango,
But only one to start a war…
I’m a huge fan of Jane Fallon’s books so I was very excited to be asked to be part of the blog tour for her latest book, keeping it to read over Christmas when I’d have time to fully enjoy it.
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 weaves a fantastic story full of intrigue with lots of twists and turns that’s keeps the reader guessing. I think I suspected everyone of sabotaging Holly at times which always makes the read more enjoyable.
This book is different from the author’s other books as there is no romance in it and the rivalry isn’t over a man for once. Instead the focus is purely on female friendships and the different forms they can take. The problems in the book are ones that I’m sure most readers would recognise and is quite comforting to read about as it makes you realise how common they are. There is also that naughty sense of being able to watch all the action unfold without being judged! I’m sure we all enjoy a bit of drama at times.
My only slight problem with this book was that I didn’t warm to the main character Holly. I found her to be a little annoying at times and I found myself feeling sympathy for the person sabotaging her as I think she’d be quite difficult to work with. This wasn’t necessary a bad thing though as I think it made me more open minded as I wasn’t on one person’s side, so was able to just be an observer.
I’ve read most of Jane Fallon’s books and she is one of my go to author’s for reads that are gripping and full of escapism. I’m always excited when she has a new book out so can’t wait to read more from her.
Huge thanks to Jenny Platt at Michael St Joseph for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book. If you like gripping reads about female friendships that you can lose yourself in then you’ll love this book.
