Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Tell Me A Secret by Jane Fallon, read by Claire Sturgess. 

Holly is feeling on top of the world - celebrating a new promotion and dying to pop the champagne with her best friend Roz. But is Holly just imagining things, or is Roz - who supported her every step of the way - not as happy for her as she should be?

Something about Roz's behaviour doesn't add up. And soon Holly has the sneaking suspicion that there's a target on her back. Has someone been playing dirty in a war Holly didn't know she was fighting? And is Roz more tangled up in this than she'll admit?

Only one woman can be left standing - but will the best woman win?

Mindless read - easy listening

An okay mindless read. Not too much depth to the characters or storyline. The twists aren’t cliffhangers but never the less I listened all the way through whilst working because the story didn’t need much concentration.

Mediocre

I found the characters shallow and the story predictable and mundane. Sorry but this will be my first and last Jane Fallon.

Keeps you thinking

Loved the story line but I found the narrator hard to relate to at first. Narration at first was like listening to a news reader put me off. But once I qweeked the speed Iit was better.

At long last a heroine my age

I've always loved chicklit, but in the last few years I have felt I was growing too old. (Excepting as always - Bridget Jones)
In comes "Tell me a Secret" - fast paced, a real life heroine full of all the hangups I can sympathise with and fast paced unpredictable action. Loved it!

"ALEXA - NARRATE ME A STORY"

I was excited to get a new book by Jane Fallon - but am afraid this was disappointing.

Bitchy women double crossing and lying to each other. V similar to Faking Friends.

The oddest thing though was the narration - I'm surprised this passed through any kind of editing, as it sounded like Alexa had been instructed to read the book. Little variation in the few moments of drama and an overall flat portrayal of the characters, although they were all quite one dimensional.

Am about 2/3 of the way through and think I'll save the rest for when I can't get to sleep.

Will just put this down to an off day and hope the next book is back to form.

Fantastic as usual

Another classic Jane Fallon. I enjoyed listening to this as is always the case with her books.
Fun, friendship and frivolity.

Light hearted and easy story

I enjoyed the story line, it was light hearted and easy going - just what I wanted. I have listened to other audio books by this author and really enjoyed them too. I wasn't a fan of the narrator - she sounded robotic and unexciting. I ended up slowing the audio down as she spoke so fast I was struggling to keep up and did consider returning the book. Glad I didn't as I liked the story and got used to the slowed down narration.

Absolutely horrendous narration

The narration on this audio book is actually horrendous. It’s totally unlistenable. It sounds like a robot on speed. Is it a computer? I’ve tried adjusting the speed but it’s no good. I can’t listen to it at all. Total waste of money and I’m gutted as I love Jane Fallons books.

So easy to read

I listened to this in just 3 days- it’s gripping, funny and puts you in a good mood. Very different to the gory thrillers I’m used to reading. Just downloaded another one of Jane’s books and can’t wait to get started!

Narrator needs a Valium

This is a good book- and I am really enjoying. But my oh my the narrator speaks too fast- it’s making me feel stressed.

Disappointing

The storyline was predictable and underwhelming and even the narrator sounded bored! Not a good choice for me
