Purchase Link –


I have to give The Babysitter 5 Plus Stars , I loved every page of this suspenseful thriller. The story is very different from the norm and I found myself in conflict with my own emotions, wanting to dislike “the bad guy” but finding myself feeling sorry for them, being Spun a web of lies that forces this person to take drastic action.

The Babysitter, Brooke can not quite believe how very daft she has been and it seems the more she tries to undo this devastating event the worse she makes things.

I read this book in two evenings, it’s an absolute page turner, it kept saying to me ” you can’t stop here there’s a really good bit coming up”

The underlying stories that run through the entire book really highlight how fast a couple can unravel. Once seemingly very happy, in love with the perfect family very quickly falls apart as dark secrets are revealed after their baby, Eden disappears.

Anyone who reads thrillers with a difference, shocking tension running through it that grabs the reader and takes you along with it right to the last page, needs to grab a copy of this corker of a thriller.
