[REVIEW] Something She’s Not Telling Us – Darcey Bell

I actually read this in October 2020, made some notes on a file, but didn’t get around to adding the links and pub details until now.

People, YOU NEED THIS BOOK. Five stars out of five. Barely hyped – I don’t think it even sold UK/Australian rights, so the paperback I read must’ve been imported here.

Just saying: if you’re into domestic and psychological suspense, this might be in your wheelhouse.

This is amazing. Early on, I had a feeling that this would be brilliant. When something starts so great, it doesn’t always stay that way, but you hope for the best.

It never lets up. The Mexican section is enthralling, and the final chunk of the book even better. Satisfying ending. This is everything you want in a read: effed-up people in effed-up families getting involved with other effed-up people in effed-up families; chaos ensues. A comfort-read; escapist, because thank crikey your family isn’t like that.

Domestic suspense does not get better than this. The author’s social media pages are unfortunately outdated, otherwise I’d probably send a thank-you letter. This was exactly what I needed to read. I’m so glad I had it.

  1. “Domestic suspense” and “comfort read” don’t usually go together in my experience, but i’m glad this one worked for you!
