About the Book


“My baby! You stole my baby!” Lara Smith is hysterical, her red lipstick smeared. A teddy lies abandoned in the empty crib. But I wasn’t hired to look after a baby. I didn’t even know this nursery existed…

Lara’s husband calls the police and screams: “The nanny has taken our little girl.”

I’m frozen in shock. This is impossible. I was only meant to be looking after the Smiths’ nine-year-old twins…

I’m certain that earlier this evening when they left for their fancy event—Lara in high heels and a floor-length gown, Corbin in a tux—they never mentioned a baby. And they definitely didn’t show me this nursery room, up in the eaves of their sprawling, beachfront mansion.

But their angelic blonde twins are now blinking at me in matching horror, and my heart pounds painfully as handcuffs snap shut around my wrists.

As I’m pushed towards the waiting police car, I look back one last time and meet Lara’s eyes. Am I imagining the cold calculation in them?

I try to swallow my panic. Why was I really hired for this job?

And then an even more chilling thought races through my mind. Do Lara and Corbin know who I really am? Because if they do, my life is in terrible danger…

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller that will get your heart racing like crazy. Prepare yourself for jaw-dropping, mind-blowing twists! Perfect for fans of addictive page-turners like The Housemaid, The Family Across the Street and The Family Upstairs.

My Review

This was definitely a wild ride.  I loved the author’s writing style.  It made it such an easy to read book.  Of course warning bells go off when Haley stumbles into things so easily.  I’m a believer that if it is too good to be true, maybe I should rethink things, but then there wouldn’t be a book.

When the girls started to play hide and seek when they weren’t really allowed to I knew there would be trouble.  And then also gave me the creepy tingles up my spine.  Perfectly set the atmosphere for the rest of the book.

I couldn’t read this one fast enough wanting to know who was the most nuts.  A missing baby that you didn’t know you were watching.  So many twists to uncover.  Some I saw and some I did not.  This one does hit on the edge of believability when it all unfolds, but I am believer in it is fiction and it is all made up.  It is a complex and layered plot that comes together and ties up all the loose strings.

Just know when you think you have it all figured out, keep reading cuz the story goes into overdrive.
