“A cautionary tale.”
Millie is trying to get her life back on track. Ten years in prison doesn’t leave you with many options. When she lands a position as a housekeeper for a wealthy family, Millie is willing to do just about anything to keep getting those paychecks.
HOLY. This book gave me The Last Mrs. Parrish vibes, and I LOVED IT. I devoured this book in a single sitting because it is impossible to put down.
I read this book, so I would be prepared to read The Housekeeper’s Secret, and boy, oh boy! This was fantastic in every way. The storyline was fast-paced and entertaining, and the twists- oh man.
This book is excellent. Freida is a talented storyteller, and she knows how to weave a thriller. My jaw hit the floor several times as I read this book, and I now understand why so many people rave about Freida as an author.
The character development was brilliant, and the way this story was curated left me speechless. I loved Millie. She may have some rough edges, but she wanted to be good. And I loved Nina. She was such a dynamic character.
This book will take you on a journey you are not expecting, and it will leave you stunned.
