This is one of those stories where at times you say "give me a break" however I was interested in it till the end so I would give it a 3.7. I would say most will figure out the culprit(s) fairly quickly but like watching a train wreck in slo-mo you can't stop listening. Maybe one too many plot twists especially at the very end. Narration was good.

What did you love best about Everything You Told Me?
This book was like starting out on a hilltop, parachuting on down to the bottom, then climbing up a thirty-degree incline until you're back up to the hilltop, with an unexpected present having been waiting for you there the whole time!
What other book might you compare Everything You Told Me to and why?
I can't think of another book that really compares to this one, and I've read many in this genre. It could be described as a family drama with a mystery twist and mind-bending suspense to boot. There are many characters to familiarize yourself with, which I think adds to the story well. I enjoyed the dynamics between Sally and her husband Matthew and the rest of their extended families. Even the children were interesting.
Which scene was your favorite?
When Sally invites herself over to her brother and future sis-in-law's Kelly's flat to get to know her a little better...
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A detective who does her own sleuthing has a fool for a client.
Any additional comments?
Great story. The opening scene sets the stage for a slow build of a mystery with many intertwining parts. Don't expect explosions around every corner, it's more like a flame that sparks hotter and brighter as it burns. I urge readers to stick with it, it's worth it. Lucy Dawson had another book called 'You Sent Me a Letter," and I am on to that one next. I enjoyed this book and would recommend!

The plot is quite interesting but a bit too much repetition and far too many descriptions of domestic activity/child care for my taste. Unfortunately I guessed the outcome quite early on, there are a couple of obvious clues & the narrator's tone gave a lot away for me.

I find it strange that I quite enjoyed a book in which actually NOTHING happened! Even when I was slightly irritated by the minute and unnecessary details of family interaction, I always had an expectation that something more was just around the corner. It wasn't and the denouement was, thus, rather disappointing and yet STILL I can't say I didn't enjoy it.....very strange!!!!!
