The Babysitter

In my opinion...

Well in lockdown times, every day can feel like a Saturday, so having mixed up my days here's yesterday's review, today!

And what a way to end the month, yet another pacey tale of secrets, lies and disfunctional relationships. Started it on the sun lounger, finished it deep in the night in bed, hard to put down.

A fast read with short chapters telling the story from multiple perspectives, which worked really well. The police interview techniques were really quite uncomfortable & clever.

I put it down a glass, only because I had guessed the murderer, but having said that still hadn't worked out the extra twists in this very enjoyable novel.

Thank you NetGalley & HQStories for this ARC

On the hottest day of the year, Caroline Harvey is found dead in Suffolk. Her body is left draped over a cot – but the baby she was looking after is missing.

Hundreds of miles away, Siobhan Dillon is on a luxurious family holiday in France when her husband, Callum, is arrested by French police on suspicion of murder. As Siobhan’s perfect family is torn apart by the media in the nation’s frantic search for the missing baby, she desperately tries to piece together how Callum knew Caroline.

What happened that night? Was Caroline as innocent as she seemed – or was she hiding a secret of her own?

My rating....
