Welcome to my stop on the I Invited Her In blog tour sponsored by TLC Book Tours! Thanks to TLC for the invitation!
About the Book:
Imagine the worst thing a friend could ever do.
This is worse.
When Mel receives an unexpected email from her oldest friend Abi, it brings back memories she thought she had buried forever. Their friendship belonged in the past. To those carefree days at university.
But Abi is in trouble and needs Mel’s help, and she wants a place to stay. Just for a few days, while she sorts things out. It’s the least Mel can do.
After all, friends look out for each other, don’t they?
I Invited Her In is a blistering tale of wanting what you can’t have, jealousy and revenge from Sunday Times bestseller Adele Parks.
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 more 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 piqued. If you’ve ever had a long-term friendship strained, it’s easy to initially connect to this story…though those dark turns are something I hope I never find relatable! 😂 Well-played, Adele Parks! Well-played!
