    5 stars I LOVED this bookMel and Abi were best friends in university until Mel dropped out due to an unplanned pregnancy ending their inseparable friendship and all communication between the girls Seventeen years later Abi now a well known TV personality shows up on Mel’s doorstep seeking friendship and support after leaving her wealthy and powerful husband Mel invites Abi to stay in her family home as long as she needs This is a tale of love loyalty family revenge secrets and lies Brimming with suspense and intrigue this novel had me glued to the pages from start to finish The characters were fantastic – some of the most memorable characters I have read about in a very long time – loved them The witty humour and snark scattered throughout the story had me shocked and laughing My connection to the writing was immediate and intense The pace and flow of the book was flawless I enjoyed each of the multiple characters perspectives and thought the transitions between each were smooth and fluent There were a few fantastic twists in this story I had suspected a couple of the twists which is shocking for me as I’m not usually a good book detective yet my enjoyment wasn’t negatively impacted at all by my accurate predictions This was my first novel by Adele Parks and as you can tell I was very impressed and am a big fan I look forward to reading of her work This was a Traveling Sister read To find this review please visit our blog at you to Edelweiss Harleuin and Adele Parks for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review

    Hmmm well where do I start with I Invited Her In?With having read MANY thrillers it takes a lot to impress this girl right here I have read some amazing thrillers this genre but unfortunately this one fell super flat for me The premise sounded promising with inviting a long lost girlfriend into your home and her taking everything But I was hoping that the author would take a fun spin with this on that tagline In my opinion these stories have to have twists edginess and keeping you on your toes and then leave you picking up your jaw due to that bang of an ending This book had ZERO of this For starters the story was WAY too long and dragged on I keep seeing this pattern of having authors write these long ass books and the story just doesn't hold up? I don't get it? Are they thinking the longer the length the better the story? Well that definitely isn't the case you either have the charm or you don'tThe story was predictable and I knew what happened before it happened I think the author could have taken such a thrilling ride with this one and she missed the mark completely on this one The characters were too cliche and come on Abi? You need to add some umph to this character if the story was supposed to play out as it did After I finishing this book realized I didn't like it at all I would not recommend this and figures I see all these high reviews and I always tend to be the outlier But did you expect anything different ;2 starsHuge thank you to Netgalley and Harleuin Mira for the arc in exchange for my honest reviewPublication date 2519Published to GR 121318

    Revenge doesn’t have an expiration date ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Abi and Mel were the best of friends years ago in school together and completely inseparable until Mel got pregnant and dropped out It’s now over 15 years later and the pair are living vastly different lives when they reconnect Mel is happily married to Ben and they have two children together Abi on the other hand had been living in LA with her high profile long term boyfriend only to find out he had been cheating on her all this time So Abi needs a friend and seeks comfort through Mel and is invited into their home to heal Things then turn dark and unexpected illustrating jealousy and revenge amongst friends has no expiration date I Invited Her In had several twists I didn’t expect I loved hearing from all the different characters; it kept my interest piued If you’ve ever had a long term friendship strained it’s easy to initially connect to this storythough those dark turns are something I hope I never find relatable 😂 Well played Adele Parks Well played I received a complimentary copy All opinions are my own My reviews can also be found on my blog wwwjennifertarheelreadercom

    A dark domestic thriller packed with madness and manipulation I invited her in and she took everythingThis was a brilliantly crafted character study Adele Parks has skillfully constructed A story about the ultimate betrayal This is not a story full of twists and turns nor is it supposed to be It is a story about master manipulation and the motivations behind it A Book about one woman’s rage and need for revenge and the destruction she leaves in her wakeMelanie and Abi were the best of friends at University but when Melanie becomes unexpectedly pregnant and leaves university they slowly drift apart they both lead very different lives Melanie is now the mother of three and married to a loving man Ben Abi has moved to the US and become a celebrity leading a life of fame and glamour When Melanie receives an email out of the blue from Abi informing her that she’s coming home Melanie does not hesitate to invite her to stay at her home At first Melanie is so excited to have her old BFF back in her life but soon she discovers Abi’s malicious intent Wow Abi was one twisted manipulative angry bitch Seriously there is no other word to describe her she was crazy evil Poor Melanie was left trying to figure out why she was doing this to her and picking up the pieces of her life at the same time There are a few twists and reveals that I suspected but that’s not what kept me turning the pages I had to see what Abi would get up to next how far was she willing to go? Her fury seem to have no boundariesA dark drama about revenge betrayal and manipulation Recommend🎧🎧🎧 Joanne Froggatt brilliantly narrates this story She gives Melanie and Abi their own uniue voices Her Abi Voice was pure perfection I think she made the character even witchy I seriously wanted to smack her many times throughout this book 🎵🎵🎵Song Running Through My Head You made a fool of meBut them broken dreams have got to endHey woman you got the blues'Cause you ain't got no one else to useThere's an open road that leads nowhereSo just make some miles between here and thereThere's a hole in my head where the rain comes inYou took my body and played to winHa ha woman it's a cryin' shameBut you ain't got nobody else to blameEvil woman evil woman evil womanEvil womanRolled in from another townHit some gold too hot to settle downBut a fool and his money soon go separate waysAnd you found a fool lyin' in a dazeHa ha woman what you gonna do?You destroyed all the virtues that the Lord gave youIt's so good that you're feelin' painBut you better get your face on board the very next trainEvilhttpsmyoutubecomwatch?vw3Vd PX Many thanks to harleuin Mira and Harper Audio for my copy of this book

    A story of manipulation jealously and payback After 17 long years Abi contacts her friend from college Melanie in hopes of catching up Abi has been living a life of glamour and luxury in the states and wants to come back to Melanie's small town and visit Being the good host that she is Melanie and her family invite Abi into their home with open arms The problem is now how do they get her to leave?The family is thrown into a state of disorganization as Abi's arrival seems to captivate and manipulate all of Melanie's time Mel has always been in a state of infatuation with Abi's popularity in college and 17 years distance has apparently not changed that In fact she seems even in awe with her and her star status Never mind that Abi did not even bother to attend their weddingI found the majority of this book to move at a slower pace and found myself getting somewhat frustrated True in the end it picked up and gave us some twists but some were rather predictable I found myself wanting to yell at both Mel and her husband Ben to get her out of their house as Abi continued to take advantage of them Abi was such an unlikable character I can't even express how much I despised her Which is odd because usually I think this just makes them all the interesting There were just some things that I could not move past Since it was a slow burn there was time for some great character development and I think that made me feel like I knew Abi even better which allowed me to hate her even The author defiantly was able to stir up my emotions Even though I enjoyed this book I do wish it would have been a little uicker to develop Thank you so much to Harleuin Mira Adele Parks and Netgalley for this ARC

    They lost touch she invited her in shows off her perfect life and she wreaks chaos on their lives I Invite Her In is a chilling twisty emotionally dark story that explores love betrayal and the illusion and jealousy of happiness The story starts off a bit slow as we get to know our main characters friends from the past Melanie and Abi as they do some female bonding They now live very different lives and when successful Abi’s life is turned upside down she reaches out to Melanie and she invites her into her home The suspense and tension built as Abi’s presence causes friction in the family We started to see cracks develop in their relationship and things start to heat up to a shocking discovery that left me yelling at some characters Things started to get heated between me and the characters and I was texting Lindsay with what I wanted to do to the characters I started turning those pages as fast as I could to find out how this story comes together in the end Thank you to Edelweiss HarperCollins Canada and Adele Parks for providing me with an ARC to read and review

    Favorite uotesSome people whispered that she was pretentious; they resented the fact that she only enjoyed listening to music on vinyl and was fussy about the strength of coffee beans; she refused to drink beer sticking exclusively to French red wine; she rarely ate She was by far the most interesting person I’d ever met“You’ll still get the fairy tale” Abi said with her usual cool confidence “I mean Snow White had seven little fellas hanging off her apron and she still netted a prince”Her body leaned into his when he walked into a room like a compass pointing northHe’s lucky if I pluck my eyebrows I just find life busy and tricky enough without having to inflict extra pain on myself for an aesthetic that precisely one person is going to benefit from I mean I’d never ask him to put hot wax on his best bits Ben has never complained about my lack of grooming in that area; it’s not as though he needs help finding his targetI’m not the sort of shape that’s considered typically desirable I only stop traffic if I press the button and the lights changeI throw the phone at the hall wall It makes a satisfying dent I can’t believe I once painted that especially for her arrival More sensible preparation would have been barricading the door heating tar sharpening knivesMy ReviewThis stunning book was highly addictive and totally consuming; once I got my teeth into it I couldn’t seem to put it down The writing and storylines were simply phenomenal as start to finish the multiple POV narratives were intensely intriguing well crafted cunningly paced and just crazy good with jaw dropping twists that had my digestive system in knots I was taut with tension deeply invested and couldn’t read fast enough while also wanting to fully relish every tantalizing detail and shocking revelation The compelling characters were irresistible uniuely flawed and captivatingly nuanced I was absorbed fascinated annoyed beguiled frustrated and horrified yet I remained overwhelmingly curious while cycling through a variety of reactions to their encounters inner musings and shrewd insights I didn’t think I could have been impressed or profoundly engaged when an eye popping and breath stealing disclosure halfway through actually caused me to gasp wobble and nearly fumble my Kindle I was rocked and it was sensational Adele Parks has mad skills and new fangirl

    375 rounded up So many mixed reviews for this domestic suspense novel and I know I am “late to the party” 🥳But I wanted to try Audible and since I love Joanne Froggatt Downton Abbey and she is the narrator I selected this as one of my two books on my 30 day trialOf course I immediately pictured JoAnne Froggatt as our main protagonist MEL loving wife and Mum She was a character I could see being friends withvery realvery relatable The writing is deliciously descriptive MEL is shocked to receive an email from a friend from UNI ABIGAIL or ABI after 17 years estranged ABI is everything that MEL is nota minor celebrity gorgeous and confidentAnd NOT a woman I would want to be friends with So Mel is giddy that ABI wants to reconnect and INVITES HER TO STAY as long as she wantsShe should’ve known there was an ulterior motive Now not having an any experience with Audibleit seemed to be taking forever to get to the WICKED partsso despite the fact that I WAS enjoying the narration I ended up switching to READING instead of LISTENING to this at about the 40% mark I felt like the author did drop some clues along the way and I guessed where some of this was headed but there were other twists that I did NOT see coming Just under 4 stars because the initial pace was slowbut perhaps if I had read it the entire time I would not have felt the same way about the pacing? 🤔This was my first Adele Parks but I am interested in reading from this talented author as I enjoyed her writing style and well developed characters
