Invite Me In by Emma Curtis

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 . . .

My Thoughts


To the outside world Eliza Curran appears to have it all. She has the perfect house, two perfect children and an au pair on hand – essentially, she has everything she could possibly want from life. Her husband Martin is disabled, confined to a wheelchair following an accident, but the front he puts on for the public is far different from what he is like behind closed doors.

When Dan moves in to one of their properties as their latest tenant, a neglected Eliza finds herself drawn to him, with an attraction that grows stronger with every passing day. As Eliza’s seemingly perfect life begins to spiral out of her control, she finds herself questioning whether or not she can actually trust Dan, and whether his sudden appearance in her life was more than a coincidence.

I have read several books by Emma Curtis and every single one of them has me well and truly captivated to the very last page. Invite Me In is – in my opinion – her best story to date. I found myself engrossed in the life of Eliza and her family from the very first chapter, and as things began to take a turn for the worst at a rather terrifying speed for her, I found myself perched on the edge of my seat unable to stop reading as the suspense levels ramped up with every passing page.

All of the characters within this book are well developed and each add something different to this thrilling read. The dialogue between the characters is witty and gripping, keeping you fully invested in the story as it plays out. If you are looking for your next page turner then look no further, this book has everything you could possibly hope for.

  1. This sounds great. I have never reviewed any by this author. I’m disabled and a wheelchair user myself. I’m always on the lookout for books which include people with disabilities in their plots as I feel there aren’t enough. The title sounds creepy. Loved the review Victoria.
