Publisher's Summary

A gripping story of friendship and betrayal from international best-selling author Adele Parks.

This audiobook includes an exclusive interview between Adele Parks and Badass Women’s Hour’s Harriet Minter. Keep listening after the credits to hear them explore the characters and themes within the book and talk about everything from Adele’s writing process to the biggest twists and turns in I Invited Her In.

‘I invited her in...and she took everything.’ 

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, 17 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.... 

This dark, unsettling tale of the reunion of long-lost friends is thoroughly gripping exploration of wanting what you can’t have, jealousy and revenge from Sunday Times best seller Adele Parks.

What a waste of time

Predictable storyline, too long descriptions which did not offer anything to the plot. Thankfully I skipped a few hours. Joanne Froggatt was very good and rescued at some degree the book. I will most definitely not listen to any other books by Adele Parks. Disappointing.

Get to the point

Too much ‘fluff’.
Hard to get in to. Repetitive. Too descriptive. Get to the point.

The Most Boring Book Ever

It literally put me to sleep. I tried 3 different times to listen to it, but couldn't get past chapter 4 because it was so boring. Total waste of time and money.
