I Invited Her In By Adele Parks

I Invited Her In‘I Invited Her In’ is the latest book by Adele Parks.

When Mel hears from a long-lost friend in need of help, she doesn’t hesitate to invite her to stay. Mel and Abi were best friends back in the day, sharing the highs and lows of student life, until Mel’s unplanned pregnancy made her drop out of her studies. Now, seventeen years later, Mel and Abi’s lives couldn’t be more different. Mel is happily married, having raised her son on her own before meeting her husband, Ben. Now they share gorgeous girls and have a chaotic but happy family home, with three children. Abi, meanwhile, followed her lover to LA for a glamorous life of parties, celebrity and indulgence. Everything was perfect, until she discovered her partner had been cheating on her. Seventeen years wasted, and nothing to show for it. So what Abi needs now is a true friend to lean on, to share her grief over a glass of wine, and to have some time to heal. And what better place than Mel’s house, with her lovely kids, and supportive husband.

‘I Invited Her In’ is Adele’s first book with her new publisher HQ Stories and it’s already sailing up the bestseller charts.

The story is primarily seen through the narrative of university best friends Abi and Mel, who did everything together, until Mel became pregnant at university and took time off to have her baby. Their friendship grew apart until nearly 18 years later, Abi gets back in touch wanting to meet as she’s going through a messy divorce. Mel feels guilty that she left her best friend at university and welcomes her into her family with open arms but nothing can prepare her for what her best friend has in store.

I adored this book, it consumed me. It kept me up at night and then at every quiet opportunity, I would seize it for a little bit more reading time.

The characters are fantastic. Mel is a traditional mother, who’s priority is her family and their welfare, but when Abi comes into her life again she’s in awe of it. Abi was once part of a celebrity power couple in America and Mel is transfixed by the stories and glamour that Abi regales to her, Mel also feels that she owes Abi after leaving her at university and never telling her who the father of her eldest son is. Whilst Abi is a scorned woman who’s heart is broken after catching her husband with a much younger woman. Distraught that her dream life is over and the possibility of ever having children has been taken away, she finds solace in the chaos of Mel’s life.

The twist in narratives make ‘I Invited Her In’ make for a complex and compulsive reading as both women have ulterior motives for getting back in touch with each other and this does make for shocking and thrilling reading.

With almost every chapter ending on the a cliff hanger and with an ending that will leave you bursting for more ‘I Invited Her In’ is a cleverly written and observational story about the dynamics of female friendship. Riddled with jealousy, deceit and suspense throughout, this book is Adele Parks at her very finest.

You can buy I Invited Her In from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.

The Image Of You By Adele Parks

The Image Of You’The Image Of You’ is the latest book by Adele Parks.

When all you can see is what they want you to see… Can you ever trust someone you meet online? Anna and Zoe are twins. Identical in appearance, utterly different in personality, they share a bond so close that nothing – or no one – can rip them apart. Until Anna meets charismatic Nick.

Anna is trusting, romantic and hopeful; she thinks Nick is perfect. Zoe is daring, dangerous and extreme; she thinks Nick is a liar. Zoe has seen Anna betrayed by men before. She’ll stop at nothing to discover if Nick is as good as he seems. The problem is, lies may hurt. But honesty can kill.

When it comes to favourite authors, Adele Parks is up there with being one of my favourites. Her ability to write gripping tales with twists and intriguing characters always leaves me wanting me when I reach the final page and ‘The Image Of You’ is no different.

In her latest book, we meet twin sisters, Anna and Zoe, women who are complete polar opposites of each other. Anna is quiet and organised, she works for a charity and also sees the best in people, whilst her sister Zoe is a reckless wild child who has aspirations of becoming a successful model and actress and refuses to let anyone stand in her way including her sister. But then meet Anna meets Nick through online dating and they embark on a whirlwind affair affair.

Once a man who enjoyed one night stands and wild passion, Anna manages to tame him to appreciate the finer things in life and Nick begins to think that Anna might just be the one for him.

After a short time together, he proposes and Anna is delighted that her life plan is back on track. Settle down, get married and have children. Reluctantly, she tells Zoe her good news, who finds it hilarious that she is rushing into the relationship and decides to leave New York for London, to visit her sister and new fiancé.

This is when chaos ensues, Zoe comes to London with her drama, lust and passion and completely catches Nick off guard. Wondering if he has fallen for the wrong sister, they begin an illicit affair and through the story, Nick finds himself falling for both sisters.

The story is seen through the narrative of Anna, Zoe and Nick and each of the voices gave the story an edge flowing from calm to manic as the story progresses. Anna is calm and organised as she plans her wedding whilst Zoe feels no remorse or guilt for her actions. Her arrogance is outstanding and adds almost an element of dark humour to the story, whilst Nick tackles confusion and guilt, Zoe revels in it.

With a clever storyline, witty and complex characters, the book is an engrossing read that was impossible to put down. Riddled with twists and drama, ‘The Image Of You’ tackles the complexity of sibling rivalry, deceit and lust with a shocking ending that will leave the reader breathless.
