Book Review / You Let Me In by Lucy Clarke

Spine-tingling, chilling, and utterly compulsive, YOU LET ME IN is the stunning new novel from Richard & Judy Book Club author, Lucy Clarke
Nothing has felt right since Elle rented out her house . . .

There’s a new coldness. A shift in the atmosphere. The prickling feeling that someone is watching her every move from the shadows.

Maybe it’s all in Elle’s mind? She’s a writer – her imagination, after all, is her strength. And yet every threat seems personal. As if someone has discovered the secrets that keep her awake at night.

As fear and paranoia close in, Elle’s own home becomes a prison. Someone is unlocking her past – and she’s given them the key…

Lucy Clarke is definitely an author that has a firm place in my most favourite authors list.  The only one left I have to read is Last Seen and I can' wait to dig into that one.

We follow Elle in this story.  She has just come back from being away for one or two weeks to her reasonably newly built house that she has been renting out while she has been away.  But there's something not quite right with the house and this is a feeling that she has right from when she steps through the door.   It seems that someone may be watching here or even in her house, both when she's not there and even possibly when she is.  Is she going mad or is there really someone out to get her? But it is  not only Elle's point of view we read in this story.  This story is split into two viewpoints, one, of course, is Elle's but the other could be the person who is watching her...

This book kept me right at the end of my seat the whole way through.  There are a vast array of characters that are featured in this book including next door neighbours, next door neighbour's son, her sister and brother-in-law.  Also, you have the family who rented the house while Elle was away.  All of them suspects...

Despite the fact that I had figured out what was happening about near the middle of the book, this was such an enjoyable read.  Full of suspense, twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat!!!
