I Invited Her In

We rated this book:


Oh, the tangled web we can weave when there are secrets and lies involved. This book had my eyeballs glued to it from start to finish. Melanie Harrison receives an email from an old college friend whom she had lost touch with named Abi. Abi tells Mel she is getting a divorce from her husband Rob. Mel immediately comes to the rescue and invites Abi into her suburban home where she lives with her husband Ben, son Liam, and two daughters Imogen and Lily. Abi is used to living the high life as a television personality so from the beginning the reader sees her scoff at the very worn-in home of the Harrison family. Throughout the book, Adele Parks kept me guessing as to what Abi’s motives were for contacting Mel after all these years. She gives the reader clues and omits information that is necessary to put the pieces of the puzzle together. As the story becomes more and more suspenseful, Parks pulls the trigger and lets the biggest secret out, connecting all the parts of the tangled web into one big “WOW”. This book was extremely well written from start to end with characters with secrets and innocent bystanders woven in. A must-read for fans of suspense and thriller books.
