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.








A Superb Read!    5-stars


What a splendid read! This novel is all about the Mortimer family; Harry, Jeanie, their four adult children – and so much more!

Frankie travels from London to York to introduce herself to her biological father, Harry, not realising that he has something else going on at that moment. Her appearance sends shockwaves through this big happy family – but are they? Or is Harry not the only one who has been harbouring a secret?

I’ve loved everything about this book; with lots of characters and plenty going on it is a packed and riveting read. The Mortimers come across as a wonderful family – but are they as happy as they seem? It’s a very easy tale to sink into and I felt quite at ease with the family members and all their faults and foibles. It’s a lesson that, no matter how together people seem from the outside, they have their problems the same as the rest of us. Have a good look around you and wonder – I certainly have!

Something to Tell You is such a well-crafted tale that I expected to bump into the characters at any time; I enjoyed it so much that I’m sorry I’m not just beginning the book instead of having finished it. Very highly recommended to all lovers of a really great family saga. 

My thanks to publisher MacMillan for my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
