    Tell Me A Secret. If you tell me yours I’ll tell you mine! 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 put it, it doesn’t matter, because every detail in this novel makes it original, refreshing, and infinitely entertaining. I am not talking about light and fun entertainment! I am talking creepy-what-is-happening-something-is-wrong entertainment! No cops, no romance, no dead bodies. Tell Me A Secret doesn’t need them. Instead, Jane Fallon picked friendship and work. She shook the two and boom! A magnificent magnum appeared! I had no idea what to expect (I can hear you say that I repeat this often and that I should remember to read the blurbs before reading a book. My answer? No! My way’s funnier!) Of course, I’d heard of the author’s reputation and strong writing. I was also very fond of the cover. I think it would make a nice picture to have framed in your room. Maybe it’s just because of the bottle of wine and the fact I’m living in Bordeaux, but don’t you think this cover is classy with its beautiful shades of red/pink? Anyway, I chose my best mug and opened the bottle… Holly, single mom and script writer, gets a deserved promotion. The team celebrates and you get a sense of what she thinks of everyone around. I just loved this. The foundations of my first impression on every other character was based on Holly’s feelings. Two things happen when the author chooses to go this way: you get close to the main character faster than I eat my cheeseburgers, and everything you know, or think you know, is subjective, so you’re never sure you have the rights cards to deal with or to fully understand a situation. I am used to this in crime fiction, usually with its unreliable characters, but I must admit that here, in this book, it had an even bigger impact. The work place is a tricky one. I felt Holly’s insecurity, I understood quickly the dynamics of the team and how her new position would trigger shifts. But never would I have suspected getting so much adrenaline and chills from a work ghost basically trying to ruin Holly’s chances at securing this job. Maybe I reacted so strongly about it because I had the bad luck of being stuck as part of a friendly-on-the-outside-but-rotten-in-the-inside team at some point in my work life. But you don’t need to have lived it to get what Holly is experiencing. Jane Fallon casts doubts and brings dread … slowly but surely. Who can you trust? Roz, the friend who has had your back since you arrived and helped you with your application? The assistant who runs everywhere and therefore hears a lot? Juliet, the one who wanted the job you landed? Your boss, who is supposed to settle things and help you? Tell Me A Secret is claustrophobic in its own way. I have no words to express just how anxious I felt for Holly as she went to work every day without knowing what would hit her. But it was a fabulous kind of anxiety, because I was on my couch!!! Still, Jane Fallon writes in such an intense way that you can’t help feeling thrown into this world of whispers and jealousy. Just like Holly, I looked for answers, I prayed she’d get some respite, I couldn’t believe the lengths someone would get to for a revenge. What is wrong with people???? Then I realized this book was more than just a fantastic page-turner. What would I do? Would I break under the pressure? Could I forgive? Would I be so gullible? When you don’t have any reasons to doubt what someone tells you, you just go with it. Why complicate things? But as the novel shows, the way we interact with others at work has a massive effect on our own behavior in the place. Can we truly stay true to ourselves and keep an open-mind when we spend days with people and hear their views on things? I remembered all the times I heard ‘don’t bother with this person, she’s crazy/stupid/insert whatever’. And sometimes you accept it, you get into a routine, you think you’re safe. Well, grab Tell Me A Secret and check twice!!! As most of us know, work has a tendency to ease its way into all aspects of your life, and Holly doesn’t escape the rule! The infection spreads to her personal life and what was supposed to be a happy time turns into a nightmare. Thankfully, she also has friends outside of work! Amazing people who made me laugh, who made me wish I had this kind of guys around, and who saved both Holly and I from going crazy! Holly’s daughter plays a part, too. We get to know Holly as a mother, as a friend, as a woman, as well as a worker. Thank goodness, because we are not robots! Tell Me A Secret had me following red arrows and made me feel all

    Thanks for your feedback!
