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?

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.

Great

Really enjoyed this book and once past the character and situation setting I couldn’t stop listening. Clever writing and twists all the way.

Bit predictable, but easy enough to listen to

Enjoyable enough story, but no huge surprises. Felt it was quite predictable and went on a bit at times.

Awful narration, bit predictable

Bit disappointed as usually really enjoy Jane Fallon books. It is so badly narrated it made it impossible for me to continue to listen to. The story was also a bit predictable

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.
