You Let him in by J A Andrews – Book Review


The only thing she was guilty of was trusting him

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 his hand.

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…

A gripping, twisty psychological thriller packed with suspense and a jaw-dropping ending. Fans of T.M. Logan, C.L. Taylor and K.L. Slater won’t be able to put this one down.

My Review

I couldn’t help but get drawn into this one! I was dying to know what secrets Michael kept from Jenny and I definitely didn’t see it playing out the way it did. The story itself was great but the details and characters were a little flawed and lacking something. Told from multiple points of view, I felt I got to know Jenny the best and I didn’t feel she was real at all. I get that people grieve differently but if we hadn’t spent so much time with her in bed or moping around, I think there could have been more details that could have spiced it up some.

Overall it was a good, quick read but I wish it had a little more pizzaz.
