#BookReview Tell Me Your Secret by Dorothy Koomson. @DorothyKoomson @HeadlinePG #TellMeYourSecret #bookblogger

It has been a long time since I read Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson, but I still remember it and how much I loved it. My heart then melted with My Best Friend’s Girl and so Dorothy Koomson earned herself a spot on my favourite author list. I haven’t read every book she has written but those that I have read I have really enjoyed. So I was excited to read Tell Me Your Secret, the author’s latest book.

My Review:

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Tell Me Your Secret by Dorothy Koomson, all I knew was that I had heard about it on various book groups on Facebook and everyone was saying good things. So I wanted to read it too.

This is the most crime book that I have read from the author, a lot of her books have crime elements but this one was totally focused around finding the man who called himself The Blindfolder, who was kidnapping women and forcing them to sit with their eyes closed for 48 hours. If they opened their eyes then he would kill them.

I don’t know about you but I find that concept incredibly creepy and unsettling, especially when I read about the experience from people who had survived the weekend.

I really enjoyed reading Tell Me Your Secret by Dorothy Koomson, the characters are interesting and the writing is confident and believable. This book creeped me out in a way books don’t often do, and was full of twists and turns and happy and sad moments. I will definitely be catching up on the books by Koomson that I haven’t read yet.

Blurb:
