Publisher's Summary

If you love B A Paris' Behind Closed Doors and Linda Green's While My Eyes Were Closed, you will love Before I let You In, the brand-new novel from Jenny Blackhurst, the number one best-selling Kindle author of How I Lost You, which Clare Mackintosh called 'utterly gripping'.

If you don't know who is walking through the door, how do you know if you should let them in?

Karen is meant to be the one who fixes problems. It's her job as a psychiatrist - and it's always been her role as a friend. But Jessica is different. She should be the patient, the one Karen helps. But she knows things about Karen. Her friends, her personal life. Things no patient should know. And Karen is starting to wonder if she should have let her in.

    "reasonable story, ropey narration"

    The story is okay but it's really let down by the wooden narration. There is no change in tone between characters so you struggle to realise who's speaking. also her voice has an irritating smugness to it.

    Story
    "Poor"

    Firstly the narrator probably ruined this book for me . Dragging out the words and over dramatising the 3 women's characters. "B" was the worst . Also the ridiculously irritating abbreviations on peoples names . The story was slow and there are parts in it which just go on and on.

    Story
    "Clever plot"

    Good story which moved with pace.

    However, the massive over-use of emphasis was so distracting, indeed annoying. Almost every other word, often totally changing the meaning of the sentence from how I would have read it. And it never stopped - until the epilogue which was flattened: at last!!

    The prose was good but as it was so oddly read, I skim-listened just to end the torture.

    Will avoid this narrator but the story-teller is worth enjoying - I may actually read the next one!

    "Twists Galore"

    Plenty of intriguing twists involving some very interesting characters. Also nicely read like nearly all the Audible books.

    "Enjoyable!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a good modern crime fiction book. It could be better with a little more attention paid to researching differences between Psychologists and Psychiatrists. The story itself is good, but it drags a little in places. The ending is excellent until the very last sentence which (not to give anything away) is not what would have been said there. I suspect though, that the bits that bother me, may only distract Psychologists and Psychiatrists! The narration is excellent in respect of voicing different characters, emphasis etc. One sentence is read twice and not edited. The most noteable issue though is the very long pauses between chapters. Twice early on in my listening, I went to check if the app had crashed due to the length of the pause. After that, it didn't improve, I just expected it.

    "Enjoyable"

    This book was a good read only spoilt by the long pauses the narrator made between chapters. 5 star for the story.

    "good but .. !!!"

    The story was good and performance good, however the delay between chapters was frustrating and at first I thought that Audible had stopped for some reason.

    Story
    "Thinly plotted, poorly written,badly read!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Sorry but for me, the whole thing was just so poor and thoroughly disappointing too. Truly groan-worthy.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jenny Blackhurst? Why or why not?

    Oh most definitely not. I felt as though the author had just churned this one out for the Chick Lit/Thriller market and it fails in both areas. I like well written, well plotted thrillers with believable characters and no glaring loop-holes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Such a poor narrator. No discernible attempt to differentiate between characters-they all end up sounding the same! She read this novel as though she was reading for a class of 10 year olds. Then there were the long, long pauses between chapters. You could pop in the kitchen and put the kettle on while waiting. Does no-one check these recordings before they go on sale?


    Did Before I Let You In inspire you to do anything?

    Next time I encounter a novel like this, I will NOT give it the THIRD chance I gave this one. I'll send it back! The writing was on the wall very early on but I just didn't read it!


    Any additional comments?

    MUST take more care when I spend my next credit.
