I Let Him In by Jill Childs

Digital Reads Reviews is a blog-haven for book posts and tech tips. This is a review of a suspenseful tale.
I let you in


Last night I dreamt about the past for the first time in years. I thought I was over it.

I thought I’d finally learned to block it out.

But I’m right back there, all over again, inside the house, and I’m afraid…

When Louise Taylor is hit by a car as she cycles home in the rain following a fight with her boyfriend, she’s left hurt, confused, and housebound in her cramped apartment while she recovers.

And worse, something tells her it wasn’t an accident.

Desperate to keep busy and distract herself from the flashbacks to her childhood that are beginning to resurface, she hires Edward – a friend of a friend – to repaint her shabby living room and, hopefully, keep the past at bay.

But when Edward arrives – quiet, considerate and handsome – Lou instantly feels like they’ve met before, that she can trust him.

Tired of carrying the guilt alone after all these years, Lou tells Edward her secret.

And to her surprise, he doesn’t pull away.

He doesn’t gasp, or grimace or preach about what she did.

And Lou is so relieved to finally be free of this burden at last.

Until she learns that Edward has a secret of his own.

One he’s been waiting a very, very long time to tell…

My Review

What was it all about

Secrets of the past that wanted to be told in the present. Only thing was Lou did not know if Edward was the right person to share it with. As he had his own secret. Something which would affect her life. 

How it made me feel

Excitement ebbed and flowed as some parts were more interesting than the others. 

The twist in the book was quite unexpected and was the only place that evoked a reaction in me. 

I liked that I couldn’t even begin to guess what the big secret would be.

The Good

The writing was smooth with suspense injected in all the right places. All the events fell into place where the seams between them stayed invisible. 

The characters were developed well as if they were waiting for me to read them. 

The Bad

Slower than the pace I was used to, the book became more gripping in the latter half as their pasts were unfurled. 

The Conclusion

Overall, an enjoyable read. The book could be bought if on a sale. 

It was good
