Age Range: Adult
Genre: Psychological Thriller

In this psychological thriller, ex-convict Millie is trying to start fresh after recently being released from jail. Desperate to find work, she is relieved when she is offered a job as a live-in maid and nanny for a wealthy family. The longer she stays, the weirder the family seems. The mother has angry and verbally abusive outbursts, and the daughter is nearly impossible to care for. Millie leans on the husband for support through her days there until the family’s terrible secret is revealed.

If you are a fan of Gone Girl and love an unreliable narrator this is the book for you! I could not put this one down. There are so many twists, turns, and surprises that it will have you guessing until the last page and leave you begging for more. The good news is, it is part of a trilogy with the third book coming out in June.
