Invite Me In by Emma Curtis | Book Review

[This post contains affiliate links.]

My rating: 4/5
Publisher: Penguin
Publication date: 2nd September 2021

To those who think they know her, Eliza Curran has it all: two healthy children, a stunning home and a wealthy, adoring husband. No one would guess the reality of her life: trapped in an unhappy marriage to a controlling man, she longs for a way out.

When she takes on a new tenant, her life changes unexpectedly. Dan Jones is charming and perceptive, and quickly becomes a close friend to the whole family.

But Dan's arrival threatens to tip Eliza's fragile world out of balance. And when someone has as many secrets as Eliza does, the smallest slip could destroy everything...

I really love Emma Curtis's books as she writes domestic thrillers very well.

Eliza Curran is married to Martin and they are parents to 6 year old Lucas and 3 year old Aurora. They are quite well off and own a lot of rental properties. Martin uses a wheelchair as he became paralysed after a car accident.

Whilst at an upcoming rental property, Eliza answers the door to a man named Dan who is interested in the flat and asks for him to be considered ahead of it going on the market officially. Dan soon infiltrates Eliza's family, by getting into a relationship with her au pair whilst also hitting on Eliza, causing tons of destruction but why? Eliza did not know Dan before this but did he know her?

This is so twisty and I loved the little bits of information that were being drip fed to us. Although I didn't particularly like any of the characters, I did feel sorry for Eliza as Martin was a very controlling person. I always worry about the endings of thrillers because they can make or break a novel but I was pleased with this one!
