All Jenny Clifton ever wanted was to be the ideal wife and mother. When she married Michael in a fairytale wedding, followed by the birth of baby Daniel, her life was complete.
Yet just three years later, the shine has faded. Now, money is tight, and the occasional argument has become daily screaming matches between Jenny and Michael.
Something needs to change… and it does, when Michael is killed in a brutal hit and run, breathing his last with a stranger holding
Lonely and distraught, Jenny strikes up an unlikely friendship with the witness to the accident, clinging to the connection with the man who watched Michael die.
But as she uncovers the secrets that her husband was keeping, Jenny realises that her perfect life may have been a perfect lie – and worse, that her new friend may be harbouring dangerous secrets of his own…
My Thoughts: 3.5/5 stars
This was my introduction to Andrews and I will say that I really enjoyed this new domestic suspense! YOU LET HIM IN follows a typical premise for the domestic suspense genre and the book really starts off with a bang.
You’ll have to suspend some belief for this one, but that’s never a bad thing! The beginng was eventful and sucked me in, but the middle had a bit of a lull that took me out of it. I highly recommend sticking with it because the ending really picks up again! A little more character driven than plot driven and I really liked seeing them develop as the story progressed. Really get into their heads and feel what they’re feeling as more layers of lies and secrets are pulled back.
Multiple perspectives, twists and turns, and characters you aren’t sure you can trust. I loved the writing and would highly recommend this to those that want a quick and easy thriller. Perfect for those new to the genre! This was my first book by Andrews and it certainly won’t be my last.
