Today is Ellen’s stop on the blog tour for Gillian McAllister’s latest book, Anything You Do Say, and I’m delighted to be able to share her review with you all!
About the book:
Joanna is an avoider. So far she has spent her adult life hiding bank statements and changing career aspirations weekly.
But then one night Joanna hears footsteps on the way home. Is she being followed? She is sure it’s him; the man from the bar who wouldn’t leave her alone. Hearing the steps speed up Joanna turns and pushes with all of her might, sending her pursuer tumbling down the steps and lying motionless on the floor.
Now Joanna has to do the thing she hates most – make a decision. Fight or flight? Truth or lie? Right or wrong?

I absolutely loved this book; a mash up of Sliding Doors and The Night Of.
Joanna Oliva is heading home from a night out with her best friend when she believes she is being followed by a man who was bothering her earlier in the night. Convinced she is going to be attacked she pushes him away and he is left injured and unconscious. At this point the story splits into Conceal (where Joanna leaves the man and the lies begin) and Reveal (where she comes to his aid, calls an ambulance and must deal with the repercussions of her actions).
I was gripped from the beginning and could not put it down; it was fascinating to see the differences in Joanna’s relationships with friends and colleagues in each time slip. A book I would happily read again and I can’t wait for Gillian’s next!!
#allthestars for this one.
