200 Word Review

I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.

“Tell Me No Lies” by Alex Sinclair starts as a love story but quickly becomes a psychological thriller that questions how well we really know those around us, especially those close to us. How well do you know your husband, wife, or significant other?

Leaving a dinner celebrating their 5th anniversary, John Dalton is a victim of a hit and run. He dies in the arms of his wife, Grace.

Desperate and grief stricken, Grace vows to figure out the meaning of John’s last words to her. In doing so, she learns she did not know her husband at all. How much of her marriage was true?

I enjoyed the premise and much of the story. However, Grace’s many of her actions were unbelievable and far fetched. The story did include an interesting and surprising twist which made the story worth finishing.

In the beginning of the novel, I sympathized with Grace. However, her actions made me stop rooting for her and just wanted to finish the book. I am glad I finished it and would read a different book by the author and have added one of his three other works to my “want to read” list on Goodreads.
