The Babysitter (Release Date: March 8, 2018)
You trust her with your family. Would you trust her with your life?
Mark and Melissa Cain are thrilled to have found Jade, a babysitter who is brilliant with their young children. Having seen her own house burn to the ground, Jade needs them as much as they need her. Moving Jade into the family home can only be a good thing, can’t it?
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?

Honestly!!! Is it any wonder that I bring my kid with me everywhere I go! Call it helicopter parenting if you want, but really it’s toe-curling books like this one that give me… um… trust issues?
The premise behind this one is not totally original but it is a terrifying one. The Babysitter is like The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (I loved that movie!) for the modern age and it’s fantastic! It’s a gripping page turner that I gobbled up in one sitting and it reminded me of why I enjoy thrillers in the first place. It had tons of suspense and drama, and it will have you screaming at the pages as characters are pulled into the twisted web the “babysitter” has created.
I heartily recommend it and can’t think of a better book to pop into you beach bag or carry-on!
