Something To Tell You – Lucy Diamond #BookReview @LDiamondAuthor

I’ve just discovered something pretty cool… Netgalley!

And the first book I requested was Something To Tell You by Lucy Diamond.

Something To Tell You by Lucy Diamond

I have heard of the author, but not read any of her books, and the blurb sounded pretty interesting.

When Frankie stumbles upon an unopened letter from her late mother, she’s delighted to have one last message from her . . . until she reads the contents and discovers the truth about her birth. Brimming with questions, she travels to York to seek further answers from the Mortimer family, but her appearance sends shockwaves through them all.

Meanwhile, Robyn Mortimer has problems of her own. Her husband John has become distant, and a chance remark from a friend leads Robyn to wonder exactly what he’s not been saying. Dare she find out more?

As for Bunny, she fell head over heels in love with Dave Mortimer when she first arrived in town, but now it seems her past is catching up with her. She can’t help wondering if he’ll still feel the same way about her if he discovers who she really is – and what she did.

As secrets tumble out and loyalties are tested, the Mortimers have to face up to some difficult decisions. With love, betrayal and dramatic revelations in the mix, this is one summer they’ll never forget. 

And here is my review, as featured on Goodreads.

Star rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

My rating: 4 of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you to NetGalley and Pan Macmillan for an ARC of this novel in return for an honest review.
I’m always a sucker for family-based stories, and this one didn’t disappoint.
Frankie finds a letter from her late mother which gives her information about her own parentage that she never knew before.
Taking a brave step, she ventures into the lives of the Mortimers, her biological father’s family with irreversible consequences.
There were so many different stories going on, stemming from the original plot, that there was no time to get bored.
At times I found myself double checking who was saying what, and which character’s point of view we had switched to, but on the whole, an enjoyable read.
Families are difficult at the best of times, this book highlights that, and also shows that you can overcome some pretty big hurdles, as long as you have your people around you!
