the cardboard characters in this book bear as much resemblace to real people as wax dolls do. the writing is terrible, and the killer can' t remember the killings despite ruminating on them--really? a dumb book.

The characters are not well-developed nor even remotely interesting. I read a lot. One of my favorite authors is Nelson DeMille whose depth of characters make his stories come alive. In this book, neither Chris nor Megan seem real as their mental dialogue is overly wordy and repetitive. An author has to create empathy for his characters to draw his readers in. I did not care about either of these two. "Gripping psychological thriller"--I think not. Reads like a movie of the week.

This book was such a disappointment. It looked promising for the first half of the book, then it was a chore to read through the rest. Really? She "forgot" she killed two little boys? Really lame. Not my idea of a thriller.

This book can be read in 3 hours. It has no twists or surprises because you can see the end coming from about the third page. It isn't gripping and reads like a 5th grader wrote it. I'm sorry I wasted the 3 hours and it went in the recycling bin the minute I finished it.

I found this to be very boring, not at all engrossing, and definitely not a psychological thriller. The writing was quite simplistic and the author pretty much told you what was coming next, time after time again. It's a quick read but not worth spending your time or money on in my opinion!

I don't see how this book has such good reviews. Although the plot is at best decent the story itself does not flow. It is repetitive. I could skip a page or two and not miss a single thing because the writer states the same idea twelve different ways back to back. I do not recommend this book to anyone. Even with the cheap price it still sucks.

I was amazed with the ending as I did think it was the husband. But I still wonder if her sister will ever tell about the suicide note and confession. Why did she kill these young boys to start with? Why was the assault by the police officer never confronted or reported? Effie will have questions about her mom as she gets older, will she be told the truth? Otherwise this book kept my interest and hard to put my kindle down. Can't wait to read another book by Mr. Croft. ;

This book did not live up to all the good comments made about it. Of course you couldn't guess the end because the author is always pointing indirectly to who he wants you to think is the killer. Then at the end I would never have guessed who it was because it made no sense to me. It was not interesting or thrilling to me in any way.

I love this author but was disappointed in this novel. It went on too long going over the same ground, and in my opinion, the "ending" was too predictable. I had it figured out before half way through. I have loved his other stand alone books but this one was not up to par.

Downloaded the book yesterday and read it all today....because of some previous comments, I knew things were not as they appeared to be but there were enough moments of. Well I didn't expect that keep the adventure going....and I enjoyed the I've got to read more of his books.....

This book didn’t pick up the boring pace until 70% in... even then, you’d have to be pretty daft to recognize that what you’re being sold isn’t what you’re going to get. Yes there’s a twist or two, but only one of them is not expected. Unfortunately, I think this had a great premise but was executed poorly.

This book was very good. Only I think you should have ended it a little differently. Maybe you should have had her tell in her letter about the murders so the parents of the boys could be at peace. Just a thought. Still a very good book

Adam Croft is fast becoming a favourite author of mine. His books move quickly, but aren’t too far fetched. He writes engaging crime thrillers that keep me mesmerised for hours, and “Tell Me I'm Wrong" is yet another superb psychological Thriller by the self published author.

“We all got secrets. We’ve all got things we’d rather our family and friends didn’t know…because we want to protect them. Protect them from harm. Protect them from the truth.”
But no one could expect the truth this very normal, very lovely young mum by the name of Megan Miller is harbouring.

When two young boys are brutally murdered in a small, safe village community, everyone is devastated and shocked. A boy who’d been taught by Chris her husband, who is the much loved primary school teacher. These are kids playing ball... good boys that listen to their mums...

Megan finds a kid’s baseball cap in the garbage bin, blood stained... literally her perfect world is shattered as she starts to question her husband...
Surely not, but when Megan digs deeper into her husband's secret life, she makes discoveries that will make her question everything and fear for both her life and her and young daughter Evie’s life.

Chapters are written in first person by different characters, which made it easy to follow and get immersed into their world. The chapters are short and punchy and the book flows well. There are twists throughout so I actually found the ending quite surprising. I think I’ll read it again I feel it’s the sort of book you can keep reading and peeling more of the layers...

.Riley loves football. He wants to play for Crystal Palace as he likes their kit. One day after playing with his friends he is taking the path back home, being careful to stay away from the water as his Mum has always told him to, when everything goes black. Meanwhile, Megan is trying to bond with her baby Evie. Chris her husband likes fishing and whilst doing so decides that he should do more to help.He has a secret but thinks that no-one knows. Chapters are written voiced by the different characters mostly in the first person, which made me take to them quickly and easily. The chapters are short and punchy which keeps the flow. There is of course a twist or two, one of which I didn’t see coming and then…. I won’t give anything away other than to say an excellent ending which for me is very important as so many are left on a cliff with no real answers. A very well written engaging tale. This is my first book by Adam and it won’t be my last,

TELL ME I’M WRONG is a mystery thriller novel by the successful independent published author Adam Croft.

What if you discovered your husband was a serial killer?

Megan Miller is an ordinary woman with a young family — until a shocking discovery shatters her perfect world.

When two young boys are brutally murdered in their tight-knit village community, Megan slowly begins to realize the signs all point to the lovable local primary school teacher — her husband, Chris.

“We all got secrets. We’ve all got things we’d rather our family and friends didn’t know…because we want to protect them. Protect them from harm. Protect them from the truth.”

But when Megan digs deeper into her husband's secret life, she makes discoveries that will make her question everything she knows. She finds a kid’s baseball cap in the garbage bin, with number 82 on the front…in blue and white, but stained in blood! Megan must now come to terms with everything, and her gut feeling is that somehow Chris is responsible. A young boy murdered. A boy who’d been taught by Chris. She now fears for both her life and her and young daughter's life.

Megan is starting to believe her husband could be a child killer. Now there is no turning back, and not everything is what it seems…

A very enjoyable read with an ending I didn’t see coming.

Many thanks for my copy.

'Mr Croft, you have a lot to answer for ! I pre ordered this and when it came out had to wait until bedtime before starting. Once started I simply couldn’t put it down. 3 o'clock came and went (struggling to stay awake but had to read more), eventually fell asleep. Next morning I decided all jobs could wait (thank goodness I'm retired), I had to finish the book first.'

The above paragraph is from a previous review for In Her Image and applies to this book as well. I know when I start one of Adam Crofts books I'll be completely hooked !

We have Megan struggling as a new mum, wondering if she has post natal depression. Then there is her husband Chris who keeps escaping to go fishing. Chris also has a closely guarded secret.

The peace and quiet of the small village where Chris and Megan live is shattered when two young boys are murdered. Both boys had attended the local primary school where Chris was a teacher.

Megan begins to have frightening thoughts when she finds a blood stained baseball cap in the wheelie bin. Who put it there? Nobody but herself and Chris had access to the bin. The suspicions start.

This is all the more interesting being written with both Megan and Chris's perspective.

Adam Croft has done it again and excelled himself! I am already hungry for the next one .........

I was very disappointed in this book. It was aggressively marketed on Facebook so I decided to give it a try. I’m an avid reader and finished it in a day, although several times I thought about moving on to another book.
The characters were overexplained, but not with useful character-building history, with repetition. The major “twist” at the end is ridiculous. Again, overexplained but nonsensical. The premise for the book is fascinating and drew me in...unfortunately, the author couldn’t pull it off. I should have known when the the store title of the book had to include “a gripping psychological thriller with a killer twist”. Just my $.02- I’d borrow it from the library if you’re interested. I bought it but I wouldn’t consider reading it again.

This book was highly recommended somewhere, so I put a hold on it at my local library and waited a couple months to get it. I was very disappointed when I picked it up and it looked like a child's chapter book. It's small and barely 1/2-inch thick, is printed in a bigger font than my regular books, and is only 265 pages long. I had to check and see if I'd unknowingly requested a YA book. Nope. This is it.

The story was okay, though repetitious in spots. The writing was not great and the characters were not fleshed out. I really don't like to read books written from the killer's point of view. I did not need to know how many colors a child turned as they were being choked out. I had already guessed the twist before it was spelled out. The ending was abrupt and unsatisfying. I won't be reading anything else by this author. It feels/reads like a cheap 99-cent of free ebook by a self-published author.

As an avid reader of mysteries, its well known that things are never as they appear to begin with, and this story is no exception. There is definitely a twist, but for a twist to work for me it has to come down as a hammer, unexpected but once it does all the pieces fall into place and it all makes sence all at once. But oddly enough the author of this story chooses to reveal the truth rather slowly so that it isn’t much of a shock and by the time the “cat is out of the bag” the pieces just don’t fall all that convincingly. It was as though i kept waiting for yet another twist that never came. And overall it just felt like when a producer of a really good tv show is told that their show is being cancelled at the last minute and they don’t have time to come up with a satisfying ending. So they come up with a rubbish ending that feels like a sentence without a period.

I loved this book! It kept me on the edge of my seat and I didn't want to put it down. When you first start it, you think you have it all figured out but then the twists and turns start! A must read for anyone who likes psychological thrillers and is a fan of Adam Croft!!

Saw this book advertised so decided to give it a try. It was interesting to say the least. I was anxious to find out the conclusion. Small twist near the end - I thought it could’ve been bigger and more exciting - but it still made the story promising.

I figured out "who dunnit" about half-way through but that's okay. What felt misleading to me was the description "digging into her husband's life" because there was no clear character development. Why was he suddenly angry and explosive. No answers to that. Really wanted to love this but really didn't. Felt sorry for the baby!

I had high hopes for this book but it fell a bit short. My biggest gripe is that 80% of the story was an inner monologue that just kept saying the same thing in different ways. Yawn..The ending almost redeemed the author..thus the 3 stars..

I've never left a review before (let alone a negative one), but was so disappointed and angry after reading this book, I felt I had to. What a waste of time and money! This was literally one of the worst books I've ever read. First of all, it was very predictable. I was able to figure out the twist early on. I only read until the end to see how the author would tie it all together. And, that's what was so disappointing. The ending was unbelievable, and made absolutely no sense. Elementary writing style. Undeveloped/ flat characters.

“Tell Me I’m Wrong” explores just how far you would go to protect your family, the secrets and lies you are prepared to keep to prevent it falling apart and just how it crumbles when those secrets begin to spill out.

I enjoyed this took an awful lot of words to say anything. I just about put it down 3 different times in the 2 days it took me to read it.....but

I'm glad I didn't. It ended up being a pretty good story.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This is a gripping thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. A seemingly normal family, adjusting to a new baby, when a child is murdered. You can guess who the killer is -- or can you? I will definitely be getting more books by this author!

This was a terrible book. I won't repeat all the criticisms from other one star reviews, wish I had read them before reading the book!! I skipped pages just to see how it would get wrapped up, ridiculous ending.

Pretty good for a quick read. Intriguing concept. I found a lot to be repetitive and didn’t get a clear distinct difference in the personalities of the characters. Whether it was Megan or Chris...they both had the same tone which left it difficult to really get into each character. Lots of repetition in what they said as well.
Also lacked imagery but overall better than I could do :) Enjoyable. Thanks.

I really enjoyed this book. It was such a fast read. I would have given it 5 stars but I did figure out what was going on halfway through the book so the ending for me was not a shocker. Other than that it was a great read. I would definitely read other books this author had written.

I read this for a book club, and it felt like punishment. Thank goodness it only took a couple of hours to read. The characters are one dimensional and uninteresting, and the plot is basically that someone thought something about someone, and then found out something different.

This book was absolutely amazing!! The storyline was great. It kept my interest from the very start to the very end. The plot twist was not expected at all. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves to read thrillers.

I usually ignore Facebook ads for books, but for some reason I paid attention to this one. I'm so glad I did. It's a great book! It was really difficult to put down. I read before work, from the time I got home until bedtime, and then I’d wake up in the middle of the night thinking about what was going to happen next, so I’d read a few chapters to satisfy my curiosity. It's very well written and kept me guessing right up to the very end. I highly recommend.

It was very difficult just to finish the book. I really love mysteries as well as thrillers but this one was difficult to keep my interest and the ending was less than spectacular. I was extremely disappointed. Maybe I expected too much but I didn’t expect a book basically in the form of a diary. Maybe it is better suited for Great Britain than the U.S.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I loved this book! It pulls you in, you chose a side, you think you know what’s happening and bam! It’s all turned upside down. This book is very hard to put down, well written characters you will be drawn to .

I knew the ending within the first few pages. There is so much repetition that it got old really quick. Every chapter from the beginning for the husband was “I have a secret. I have a secret. I have a secret.” We get it! It’s just not well written and doesn’t flow well.

This is the first book (kindle edition) that I've read by Adam Croft and I did not know what to expect. Once I started reading "tell me I'm wrong " it was hard to put it down. I'm glad I discovered his work and I will be looking forward to reading more of his books.

Dullest book I've read in YEARS ! and I read a book or two a month every and anything..
Very boring never intrigued my curiosity.
I felt as if I were reading on a 6th grade level
Sorry not sorry ........

I really enjoyed this book for many reasons. The characters were so vividly written, the story drew me in from the first moments and the story kept twisting to the very end ! It is a quick read because you will want to put it down.

The writing wasn’t bad but it was somewhat predictable. Also, to take postpartum woman and turn her into a serial killer is messed up. Postpartum depression is a real thing but it doesn’t turn people into killers.

This book has got mainly 5 star reviews ... I just can’t justify five stars for this novel . Story line was a good idea , but it could have been amazing , but I found it quite repetitive , it was the thoughts of the two main characters all the way through . It started well but nothing really happened . I was waiting for the twist but the twist was really quite lame, I found it all really quite dull . Sorry Mr Croft ... 3 stars from me
