Grace Adams appears to be living a happy contented life in the same village near St Andrews in Scotland where she was raised. Married to Paul and the mother of twin teenage daughters, Grace spends her time painting and caring for her family. Life is good, or so it seems.
The truth is, Grace has been hiding a secret for many years. A secret she has slowly came to terms with and managed to live with. That is until out of the blue, Grace receives a phone call from her childhood best friend, Orla, who she hasn't seen or spoken to for years - for good reason.

With just one phone call, Grace's idyllic life is turned upside down as Orla threatens to expose the very secret Grace has kept hidden all these years. You see, only Orla and Grace know the truth about what happened to a nine year old girl called Rose whilst on a Girl Guide's camping trip all those years ago and whilst Grace never wants the truth to come out, Orla it seems now has other ideas. Grace finally has to face her worst fears as she realises that her dark secret is not going to remain buried forever.

Tell Me No Secrets is a psychological thriller set against a familiar, normal domestic backdrop. Grace is an ordinary working mother with a hard-working husband and teenage twin daughters. They lead a happy life in the village where Grace was raised. Indeed some of her childhood friends have also married and remained in the village, where everyone seems to know each other. Although Grace and her husband lived in the States after their marriage, Paul thought it would be ideal to raise their daughters 'back home' and so they returned.

Grace is totally consumed by guilt. She lives with it her whole adult life, she feels like she's made amends in the only way she knew how, until a blast from the past threatens to rip her life apart. She is tortured and tormented and the author gets inside the character's head so completely that we feel every ounce of Grace's guilt and anxiety. There is tension on every page and the story of what really happened is gradually revealed in engaging flashbacks. Like the other reviewers, I couldn't put the book down and read it everywhere; the characters and story stayed with me long after I'd closed the covers.

I'd definitely recommend this book as one to get lost in, to take on a journey, or to curl up with on the sofa under a blanket!

Could not put this book down.Its a brilliant read......love,secrets, suspense, betrayal all mixed in with every day life, The story of Grace and her friend Orla filled me with many different emotions.
I felt sorry for Grace at times, and then I felt I could choke her, then the suspense was killing me so much I could not wait to reach the end of the book to find out the outcome.As for Orla she made me angry, I would love to have shouted at her, given her a good shake, she is a nasty piece of work but then I found myself asking...... WHY? This is Julie Corbins first novel and one I would recommend.You will get so involved with the characters,you might even be able to relate to them,but be assured you will be thinking about them long after the book has ended. This book is one to get lost in and one to make you think.

Brilliant, brilliant book written beautifully! From the opening sentence to the end I was drawn into the lives of the characters, loving the way Julie chose to slowly tell you more about the secrets that entwined them - but not too much, just enough to make you want to carry onto the next chapter. It's a believable story which is why it makes it hard to put the book down. Can not wait for Julies next novel!

There are some good new female thriller writers about at the moment, that I've discovered this year - S J Bolton, Abbie Taylor and now Julie Corbin.
Tell Me No Secrets is a gripping, edge of the seat story about Grace who is so consumed by guilt that it's still ruling her life years later. I think most of us can identify with the feeling of a black cloud of worry hanging over us at some point in our lives, and because the characters are so well observed this really enables us to empathise with Grace's predicament. In her shoes I think I would have confessed, as I could barely take the strain just reading about it, let alone living it.
I thought I'd worked out the ending (terrible habit of mine) pretty early on, but it's not until the story unfolds and a greater insight is gained about the characters' pasts that I began to realise that it wasn't quite as straightforward as I'd imagined. I will definitely be looking out for the author's next book.

this is a page turner; an excellent read.It tells the story of Grace who is happily married;husband, two teenage girls and a very idyllic life.Until one day out of the blue all that is in danger of being destroyed.Into the picture comes a childhood friend who is sly, deceitful, utterly vindictive and has only one aim and that is to completely shatter Grace`s life.An event that happened when the two of them were teenage friends has haunted Grace from that time on,this, if told to the man she has married would end any happiness they have.The story moves along well, it is easy to get into,it goes from past to present,but only in fairly small chapters so you do not lose sight of the present day story line which holds all the anguish and torment that Grace is feeling.there is of course a twist at the end as i had the feeling that things would be slightly different to what you are being lead towards.I very soon felt great sympathy towards Grace as she was about to loose everything on the whim of a so-called friend who is not such a friend after all.She had been so traumatised at the time of the event,and had only managed to bury it away in the back of her mind through the help of Euan a boyfrind at the time.He is on the scene again in the present, only this time he has married, but this does not stop him from persuing Grace,and when the viscious friend appears he is there to comfort her. Needless to say no -one is completely truthful which makes for a nice little twist at the end.i recommend this book if you like a book ,easy to read uncomplicated but a cast of characters that are well portrayed and true to life.I have not read any of this authors works until now but will be looking for anything else she has written and hope any other work will be just as enjoyable.
