I INVITED HER IN by Adele Parks

My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A twisted tale of lies, manipulations, and revenge.
Holy Crap! I INVITED HER IN is one of those books sent me on a rollercoaster ride of crazy. I loved the way the author constructed a story which played upon the emotions of the characters. It is as if Parks thought of the most contorted plot possible and then kicked it into overdrive.
What I loved about this book is how effortlessly I believed the story. Though I would not call it traditional suspense, there was a tremendous amount of tension and scheming happening within these pages of this one. Sure…things got a bit nuts, but there was always something which made it all plausible. It is this heightened fiction with the base of reality which made me borderline obsessed with the book. The deception. The duplicity. The backstabbing. The vengeance. All of it was sinfully delicious and expertly crafted.
For those of you who love a look at the darker side of human nature, love a juicy story, or are fans of TV shows like Desperate Housewives, I INVITED HER IN may be your next read. The book has an addictive quality. Many times, I found myself thinking about what would happen next just as I was going about my day. Parks is definitely an author I will be keeping an eye out for.
