All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you!

A rich family is offering her a room in their lavish house if she does the cooking, cleaning and occasionally takes care of their little daughter. Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I finished this in one sitting , couldn't tear my eyes away … I did not see the plot twist coming at all! Let's not even mention how far-fetched the twist about the policeman's daughter is, and how it would be absolutely impossible to simply drop an investigation like that, even if a random policeman decided to.At Andrew’s wake, Evelyn Winchester, Andrew’s mother, reveals to Nina that she disciplined Andrew as a child in a similar manner to how Andrew tortured Nina. I enjoyed the narrator and being able to go back and forth between the book and listening to it in the car.

Despite small action in the first half ,the characters engaged me enough to keep me turning the pages and to feel the frustration of their situations. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because I wish there were a few more mini-plot twists sprinkled throughout, but overall, I really enjoyed it and would definitely read the sequel! After all the buzzing hype surrounding this book that never seems to diminish, I finally decided it was time to dive in and award myself some entertaining popcorn reading.Millie realizes that the woman is being abused by her husband and assures her that she can help her. From McFadden’s excellent writing style to all the characters I absolutely loved, this is easily one of the best novels of 2022. During the night, when Millie wakes to use the bathroom, the doorknob sticks, and she starts to panic; she gets the door open but has a sense of foreboding. Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this novel for an honest review. Anyone who loves The Woman in the Window , The Wife Between Us and The Girl on the Train won’t be able to put down The Housemaid !

But as I look into Andrew's handsome brown eyes, so full of pain, it's hard not to imagine what it would be like to live Nina's life. It's simply not believable that a man in his thirties who has lived and worked in the US for 3 years, being employed by a dozen families in such a posh neighbourhood, and who is considered the best at what he does, would not speak any English at all, not even the most basic communication that Italian children are taught in primary school. The story is told in three parts, I found part 1 and part 2 to be quite predictable but part 3 is what wowed me.

I started this book thinking I’ll get the temporary satisfaction of a quick thriller (my favorite genre of book) and move on to the third Harry Potter afterwards. I won't put spoilers in, but I was also pleasantly surprised and rooting for other characters that I very much disliked in the beginning by the end as well. But she soon finds out… and by the time I realize my attic bedroom door only locks from the outside, it’s far too late.
