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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Brilliant absolutely gripping"

    This is my favourite genre so I am quite good at working the 'twist' out! However this is a very cleverly woven plot which takes some unraveling.
    It was very entertaining my only criticism was the gap between chapters is so long I thought my device had crashed!

    Story
    "I listened to the end"
    What did you like most about Before I Let You In?

    I kept listening to the end even though it was not my really my type of book. Anticipated what was the "twist".


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

    No


    What aspect of Jennifer Ness’s performance might you have changed?

    She sounded a bit like Dawn French at times.

    "Good story, terrible narration"

    This is a good book ruined by the narration. A hideous voice which grates. No difference in voice for any if the characters , male or female. I nearly gave up on this so many times but the underlying story is intriguing. Maybe thats why it was reduced, and the ling pauses between chapters us deadly. They are not consecutively numbered either. Very odd!!

    "Blah"

    The narrators voice was actually quite annoying and kinda put me off paying attention to what was being said. The story has a lot of twists and turns which is good but that's about it.
