As Mark works long hours as a police officer and Melissa struggles with running a business, the family become ever more reliant on their babysitter, who is only too happy to help. And as Melissa begins to slip into depression, it’s Jade who is left picking up the pieces.
But Mark soon notices things aren’t quite as they seem. Things at home feel wrong, and as Mark begins to investigate their seemingly perfect sitter, what he discovers shocks him to his core. He’s met Jade before. And now he suspects he might know what she wants …
Mark is in a race against time to protect his family. But what will he find as he goes back to his family home?
If you loved reading The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and The Sister, you’ll love the suspense of The Babysitter. This unputdownable read will have you turning the pages until way after dark.
Having read and enjoyed the authors newest book, The Affair, and loving it, I thought I would I try one of her other books. It didn’t disappoint.
This was such a tense read which builds up throughout. I had to stop myself from jumping up and down and screaming at Mark and Melissa in the hope that they would see what was going on before their eyes. Jade, well don’t get me started on her, would have liked to have had half an hour on my own with her to give a good piece of my mind that’s for sure!
Mark, you can’t help forming a little bit of a crush on. He is just perfect in every way. His love for his wife is unfaltering which I liked as to many films and books make the men quite weak when it comes to the opposite sex and it makes for a refreshing change.
The Babysitter is a novel that will have you going through an array of emotions. My anger levels alone were nearly through the roof at one point as Jade is a character who well and truly gets under your skin. This really is a nail biting, edge of your seat read where you will be desperate to see what the outcome will be. Will definitely get the adrenaline pumping!
