Who Did You Tell?
by Lesley Kara

A recovering alcoholic’s dark secerts catch up with her in this gripping novel of psychological suspense from the internationally bestselling author of The Rumor.

“Instantly immersive, then intriguing, then insanely suspenseful, then . . . the truth. Believe me, Lesley Kara knows what she’s doing.”—Lee Child

We said to keep it a secret, that no one needed to know.

Astrid is newly sober and trying to turn her life around. Having reluctantly moved back in with her mother, in a quiet seaside town away from the temptations and darkness of her previous life , she is focusing on her recovery. She’s going to meetings. Confessing her misdeeds. Making amends to those she’s wronged. If she fills her days, maybe she can outrun the ghosts that haunt her. Maybe she can start anew. 

But someone is tormenting me now. Someone knows where I am and what I’ve done.

Someone knows exactly what Astrid is running from. And they won’t stop until she learns that some mistakes can’t be corrected. Some mistakes, you have to pay for . . .

Momma Says: 4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Who Did You Tell? starts out a bit slow for a psychological thriller, but Astrid is such a thought-provoking character that it was easy to fall into her story. Most of us have been touched by addiction in one way or another, whether it's gotten its hooks into us personally or someone we love. Either way, Lesley Kara handled that element very well in my opinion. Astrid's inner monologue rings quite true, and I feel like the author gives us a pretty sharp look at some of the long road addicts face. Once things pick up, the story has a fair amount of twists, some predictable, some not as much, but predictable or not, the story held my interest. In the end, the story kept me turning pages, and while I still feel like it was more drama than thriller, it was certainly worth the read.
