Overview


It took everything in Teresa Farr’s power to return to her hometown of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Eight years earlier, she had walked in on the savage murders of her father and stepmother—both of whom she hated. She barely managed to save herself and her eight-year-old stepsister, Celeste. But even after notorious serial killer Roscoe Lee Byrnes confessed, people still wondered if Teri was the guilty one. And with Celeste unable to remember that night, or to speak at all, those suspicions never went away…

Now Celeste is beginning to remember. Now Byrnes has recanted his confession. And someone is using a series of bizarre, taunting events to exact terrifying “justice.” As Teri desperately races to uncover the truth, she’s finding that everyone she loves has secrets they would kill to keep buried. And in the bright mountain sunlight, an evil concealed all too well is reaching out to silence her and Celeste forever…

    Good read!

    Sometimes falls into the "mushy" genre, but all in all, a good storyline to keep you on edge.

    I guessed everyone but the actual killer!

    Worth the purchase.

    This is more like it!

    Thoroughly believable characters and realistic situations make IF YOU EVER TELL entirely better than Dr. Thompson's last two books. I couldn't put it down until the end. An evil Hugh Farr and his conniving wife were murdered eight years ago. A death row killer recants his confession, and a combination of mentally ill and just plain evil characters make you wonder until the end who committed these murders and tried to frame his daughter.

    engaging romantic suspense thriller

    Eight years ago someone broke into the Farr home in Point Pleasant, West Virginia killing the parents and stabbing preadolescent Celeste. Since teenager Teresa Farr was untouched, the police and the media assume she killed her father, stepmother and failed at murdering her stepsister. However, serial killer Roscoe Lee Byrnes confesses to the murders after he is caught. He is convicted and placed on death row awaiting state execution while Celeste has remained silent since the assault. --- However, just before Byrnes is to be executed, he renounces his confession in the Farr homicides. Meanwhile Teresa begins receiving notes insisting she will soon face 'justice' while mute Celeste recognizes a unique smell and begins to talk for the first time in eight years insisting her stepsister is not only innocent, she saved her life. However others do not believe the traumatized child including the note writer as someone wants to divert attention to Teresa for the killings if necessary even set up a murder suicide scenario that will eliminate the survivors while casting culpability on the older soon dead stepsibling --- This is a tense suspense thriller that grips readers the moment that Teresa enters her home to find a nightmare that awaits her. Everyone except for Celeste believes she is the cold blooded killer even after Byrnes confessed. The story line is fast-paced as the killer raises the ante to insure no one alive knows the truth. However, fans will be irritated with the heroine¿s denial that danger is mounting although her reaction seems psychologically realistic since Teri cannot emotionally deal with a second deadly encounter until she has no choice. Still Carlene Thompson provides an engaging romantic suspense thriller. --- Harriet Klausner
