Book Review – You Let Me In by Camilla Bruce

36697053. sy475


Cassandra Tipp is dead…or is she?

After all, the notorious recluse and eccentric bestselling novelist has always been prone to flights of fancy–everyone in town remembers the shocking events leading up to Cassie’s infamous trial (she may have been acquitted, but the insanity defense only stretches so far).

Cassandra Tipp has left behind no body–just her massive fortune, and one final manuscript.

Then again, there are enough bodies in her past–her husband Tommy Tipp, whose mysterious disembowelment has never been solved, and a few years later, the shocking murder-suicide of her father and brother.

Cassandra Tipp will tell you a story–but it will come with a terrible price. What really happened, out there in the woods–and who has Cassie been protecting all along? Read on, if you dare…


My Review
3.5 out of 5 stars

I feel like I am going to be horribly inadequate in reviewing this book because I simply just don’t know what to say. I don’t know how I feel. I ended up with more questions than when I started the book. I didn’t hate this book but I didn’t really love it either. However, one thing is for sure…this author knows how to tell a story! I finished this book in less than 24 hours. I was so intrigued and was anxious and excited to get to the end of the story.

Cassie is so firm in her belief of the faeries that there were plenty of times that she had me believing they were real as well. But then there were times when I thought the faeries were just her coping mechanism from the abuse that she was going through.

But then…maybe both things are true. Just because something is true, doesn’t make the other thing untrue, right?

You’ll have to read this book and decide for yourself what you believe happened.
