Tell No One Reviews

  • Susan Peterson

    In Tell No One, readers are drawn into an intricate web of family secrets, abandonment, and deception. The story is told from two points of view: Caroline, who is looking for her father who disappeared 30 years earlier; Harris, a trusted coach and mentor who is caught up in something that can destroy everything and everyone he loves. One thing that sets Barbara Sissel’s books apart from other suspense novels is the depth of emotion that I feel for the characters, their struggles and their demons

    In Tell No One, readers are drawn into an intricate web of family secrets, abandonment, and deception. The story is told from two points of view: Caroline, who is looking for her father who disappeared 30 years earlier; Harris, a trusted coach and mentor who is caught up in something that can destroy everything and everyone he loves. One thing that sets Barbara Sissel’s books apart from other suspense novels is the depth of emotion that I feel for the characters, their struggles and their demons. In this book, my feelings for Caroline and Harris and the supporting cast were as tangled as their own complex set of circumstances. This book left me pondering so many issues—the sacrifices parents and children will make to protect each other; the fact that right and wrong are not always clear cut; that the consequences of our actions, both big and small, can have far-reaching effects; is it sometimes better to not know the truth? Book clubs will have much to discuss after reading this novel! Thank you to the publisher and net galley for providing a copy of this book.

    From the absolutely beautiful cover to the very last word of this book you will be drawn into the story of Caroline Corbett’s and her hunt for her father. Caroline has not seen her dad for thirty years. Partly because she didn’t want to. She distanced herself when she was a teen and he had remarried. He had reached out to her several times but she would have nothing to do with him. Now she regrets not knowing where he is or what he is doing. Her aunt, his sister, is dying and wants nothing more

    From the absolutely beautiful cover to the very last word of this book you will be drawn into the story of Caroline Corbett’s and her hunt for her father. Caroline has not seen her dad for thirty years. Partly because she didn’t want to. She distanced herself when she was a teen and he had remarried. He had reached out to her several times but she would have nothing to do with him. Now she regrets not knowing where he is or what he is doing. Her aunt, his sister, is dying and wants nothing more than to see her brother before the end so Caroline starts her search for her missing father.

    Caroline experiences many ups and downs on this journey. Some are life threatening and others are heartbreaking. But she won’t give up. She loves her Aunt like a mother and wishes to fulfill her dying wish.

    This book has wonderful characters who you will either love or dislike greatly. It’s a family drama but also a family who love each other. This book has so many aspects to it. You’ll see attempted murder, drug addiction, PTSD, clinical depression, love(lots of love), abuse, brushes with the law. There are lots of emotions in this wonderful book. I loved that the ending was not rushed and all of my questions were answered. No strings were left dangling. It was just a perfectly told story. One that will certainly bring you to tears in parts and have you on the edge of your seat in others. There are so many ups and downs you will want to find out what happens next. I had a very hard time putting this book down once you start it. I spent my whole Saturday reading this book. It was truly so well done.

    I highly recommend this book to everyone. It’s so good. You will not regret it at all.

    It’s a big 5 stars from me and more if I could.

    Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishers for an ARC of this book in exchange for my complete and honest review. I LOVED IT!!

    Carolina's father disappeared from her life when she was a young girl She remembers the happy times. Her mother before. Her mother after.

    The severe bouts of depression.

    She was left to care for herself. After all, her mother couldn't even care for herself. But her aunt stepped in and was more mother than mother. Her emotional support, her refuge. But now her aunt is dying. Her second round of cancer treatment. Even with treatment, her prognosis is six months. Caroline will do anything for her. What she wants is to see her brother, whom neither has seen in thirty years. Her aunt had a falling out with him after he left his family.

    So off Caro line goes, to track down this man she would rather not see, who.left for another woman and a son he could raise as his own.

    But in her search she finds a host of secrets, some criminal. She discovers more about her father than she cares to know. Is it criminal? Is she in danger?

    Barbara Taylor Diesel has done it again! A psychological thriller without any clues. A read you cannot put down. A book that, for me, made time stand still. This I highly recommend. It is a MUST READ! Congratulations Barbara Taylor Sissel!

    Caroline Corbett is determined to fulfill her dying aunt’s wish. She wants to be reunited with her brother who has not been seen by any family member in years. Caroline’s father, Hoff, left her family and remarried when she was young. He was never a part of their lives and she felt neglected by his actions.

    The search for Hoff gives Caroline a break from her own difficulties. Her marriage is at a crossroads and the business she shares with her husband has been mismanaged. Because of this, Caroline finds herself absorbed in the task of locating her father. Her search leads into his mysterious past and pushes her to begin sorting out her future.

    Barbara Sissel’s book is a compelling story. Tell No One is a story about family dynamics, secrets, and relationships. The author did a wonderful job of weaving different characters into the story as this mystery unfolds.

    Author Barbara Taylor Sissel keeps the tension taut from start to finish. Shying away from stereotypes and tired clichés, she builds both Caroline and Harris into three-dimensional characters. Readers may not always like them or the way they act, but they’ll sympathize enough with them to want to cheer them on.

    Author Barbara Taylor Sissel keeps the tension taut from start to finish. Shying away from stereotypes and tired clichés, she builds both Caroline and Harris into three-dimensional characters. Readers may not always like them or the way they act, but they’ll sympathize enough with them to want to cheer them on.

    With enough red herrings to satisfy most mystery lovers, the author keeps the answer to the central question—what happened to Hoff and where is he—just out of reach until the right moment. The conclusion that follows keeps in pace with the rest of the story. Ms. Sissel doesn’t linger over long resolutions. She’s in and out in neat fashion, and readers will finish this fast-paced novel wishing for more.

    Emphasizing the idea that all the information at hand may not necessarily constitute the entire story, readers are in for a wild ride. Once you start reading you won’t want to stop, which is why I recommend you make time to binge Tell No One.

    Caroline Corbett’s Aunt Lanie was dying and when she begged Caroline to find her brother, Caroline’s father Hoff, Caroline was determined to do it. It had been thirty years since she’d seen her father. He’d left her mother and her, married another woman who had a young son and Caroline’s bitterness and jealousy had kept her from trying to find him.

    Caroline Corbett’s Aunt Lanie was dying and when she begged Caroline to find her brother, Caroline’s father Hoff, Caroline was determined to do it. It had been thirty years since she’d seen her father. He’d left her mother and her, married another woman who had a young son and Caroline’s bitterness and jealousy had kept her from trying to find him. As well as her heartache over her aunt, Caroline’s marriage was in tatters.

    Harris Fenton was head coach of the baseball team as well as athletic director at Wyatt High School. He had a beautiful wife and two sons he adored. But he was a mess. His life was spiraling out of control and he wasn’t strong enough to do anything about it. He couldn’t let go of the past; couldn’t deal with his ongoing problems.

    As Caroline searched, she uncovered events from the long ago past which horrified her. She couldn’t believe it had really happened – but she soon found there were people who didn’t want her to continue. Her life could well be in danger…

    by Barbara Taylor Sissel is a contemporary drama novel with emphasis on “drama”. The two key players, Caroline and Harris, both had messy lives, although I liked them both. There was a lot of American sport – football and baseball – and I ended up skimming over those sections. I’ve previously read two by this author –

    and

    – I gave both 5 stars but

    had too much going on – but the ending was excellent and I can now happily recommend it.

    With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my digital ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.

    Diving into the latest Barbaba Taylor Sissel is a bit like coming home; her books are comforting and you know precisely what you're going to get. While this wasn't my favorite of her novels, I still enjoyed it and think fans of her work should definitely pick this up.

The gorgeous cover drew me in immediately, and I think my major hindrance in giving this a higher rating was that I simply felt a bit overwhelmed by the many diverging plots here. If I had been pulled in fewer directions, I may have been able to connect a little deeper with the characters, although the author still did a fantastic job of piquing my emotions, especially with the way all wrapped up. Looking forward to her next book! <3

    I think I would have liked this one more if it just would have picked a lane and stayed in it. Some of the personal issues of the main characters bogged down the story. I basically didn't care for anything that wasn't directly related to the disappearance of Caroline's father.

    Caroline Corbett hasn't seen her father since he vanished from her life and the town he lived in decades ago. After her dying aunt begs Caroline to go find him she attempts to search for him but it soon becomes apparent that some people aren't too happy she's around and asking questions. Digging up the truth might prove costly.

    I'm pretty much always game for any mystery involving a missing person and that is the main reason I kept reading this one. The story alternates between two different characters. For much of the book I only really felt invested in Caroline's part and not Harris' storyline but that changed towards the end after I had had enough of Caroline and her marriage and love life woes. I wasn't all that impressed with Harris and his messy life either but at least it tied in better with the rest of the story.

    The author scored some points with having a pretty decent ending. I'm not saying it was entirely satisfying but it wasn't one that I was expecting so that helped redeem the book a little bit in my eyes. Overall, this is an okay read, nothing more, nothing less.
