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 . . .

Its protagonist is Eliza Curran. Like many women in these melodramas, she appears to have the perfect life: two adorable children (and a live-in French au pair to take care of them), a stunning home, and a wealthy husband, who appears to adore her. The key word is ‘appears’, as behind closed doors Martin Curran is extremely controlling and Eliza is miserable.
Martin is in a wheelchair following a motorcycle accident some years previously and he also knows secrets from Eliza’s past that could destroy any chance of her retaining custody of their children if she leaves. So she stays and longs for freedom.
Then one day as Eliza is putting the finishing touches on the latest flat in their property portfolio, the charming Dan Jones knocks on the door enquiring about the tenancy. Suddenly, life is looking a wee bit brighter. Oh Eliza!
No more details in order to avoid spoilers, though suffice to say that the plot takes some surprising directions that kept me glued to its pages in anticipation of what happens next.
I did find Eliza difficult to empathise with as she seemed very immature and her own worse enemy in allowing Martin to bully and disrespect her in front of their children. Still, though Eliza was at times exasperating Martin was vile and vindictive; he would have felt right at home in a Victorian penny dreadful.
There is no doubt that ‘Invite Me In’ was a gripping psychological thriller/domestic noir. Even though at times I wanted to jump into the book and give Eliza a good talking to - that level of engagement demonstrates that I was clearly invested in both its characters and storyline. It definitely was a bit over the top though no less entertaining for that.
3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
Our central character is Eliza and I will admit to feeling quite a bit of sympathy for her as there are elements of her situation that are quite close to home for me. But like every good narrator, she's not as reliable as she might be. She's an alcoholic, she doesn't always remember things and she's vulnerable. I wanted to believe her all the way through but I was never completely sure that I could.
About two thirds of the way through, it becomes clear that there will be no more slow burn and suddenly the whole plot explodes into life. I loved seeing how everything unravelled and I was holding on to my seat for dear life. There were so many revelations and twists and I couldn't wait to see how it would all turn out.
