You Let Me In Novel's Release Details: "Camilla Bruce’s debut, YOU LET ME IN (On sale April 21, 2020), is about to make you question why you ever stopped checking the closet for monsters before going to bed each night. You’re about to experience that excellent feeling of finishing a story that makes you immediately question your reality. The sort of story that blurs the line between fact and fairytales, forcing you to reconsider even the smallest, most mundane details of your daily life.
This thrilling Gothic tale for a new age is every bit of Gone Girl meets The Haunting of Hill House. YOU LET ME IN combines a haunting mystery with otherworldly romanticism and ties it in a dark, sinister bow. Writing with spellbinding menace, Camilla Bruce will have your full attention from the first page. Camilla Bruce grew up in Norway and taught herself to write English through the fanfiction community, with YOU LET ME IN is the story that she’s always wanted to tell.
The story picks up after the mysterious disappearance of Cassandra Tipp, a notorious recluse and eccentric bestselling novelist. She’s left behind no body—just her massive fortune, one final manuscript, and a set of instructions for her niece and nephew who wish to claim her fortune.
Cassandra’s disappearance is less than shocking to both her family and neighbors. She’d always been prone to flights of fancy, telling incredible stories ever since she was a child. And, besides, 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?
YOU LET ME IN is more than just an unreliable narrator and an unsolved murder—it combines the mystery and action of a traditional thriller with the ethereal atmosphere and gorgeous prose of a fairytale, and ties it all together with an absolutely delectable storyline.
