#BlogTour – #BookReview of #TheHousemaidsSecret by Freida McFadden @Freida_McFadden @bookouture #BooksOnTour

I’m pleased to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for gripping psychological thriller The Housemaid’s Secret by Freida McFadden. Thank you to Bookouture for giving me the opportunity to read and review this fabulous book.

About the Book: 

“Don’t go in the guest bedroom.” A shadow falls on Douglas Garrick’s face as he touches the door with his fingertips. “My wife… she’s very ill.” As he continues showing me their incredible penthouse apartment, I have a terrible feeling about the woman behind closed doors. But I can’t risk losing this job—not if I want to keep my darkest secret safe…

It’s hard to find an employer who doesn’t ask too many questions about my past. So I thank my lucky stars that the Garricks miraculously give me a job, cleaning their stunning penthouse with views across the city and preparing fancy meals in their shiny kitchen. I can work here for a while, stay quiet until I get what I want.

It’s almost perfect. But I still haven’t met Mrs Garrick, or seen inside the guest bedroom. I’m sure I hear her crying. I notice spots of blood around the neck of her white nightgowns when I’m doing laundry. And one day I can’t help but knock on the door. When it gently swings open, what I see inside changes everything

That’s when I make a promise. After all, I’ve done this before. I can protect Mrs Garrick while keeping my own secrets locked up safe.

Douglas Garrick has done wrong. He is going to pay. It’s simply a question of how far I’m willing to go…

This absolutely explosive and shockingly twisty sequel to international bestseller The Housemaid will keep you racing through the pages late into the night. Anyone who loves The Perfect Marriageby Jeneva Rose, The Woman in the Window and Gone Girl will be totally hooked! This book can also be enjoyed as a standalone.

My Review:

The Housemaid’s Secret is the chilling sequel to  Freida McFadden’s bestselling psychological thriller The Housemaid. I wasn’t sure how the author could improve on the first book as it was so good, but I must say it did not disappoint!

Well paced and gripping, The Housemaid’s Secret is every bit as dark and twisted as it’s predecessor and kept me turning the pages long into the night. Full of the kind of twists and turns that I love, it is a chilling read that had me enthralled from beginning to end.

Millie is a brilliant character who you can’t help but like even though you know you really shouldn’t. After the events of the previous book, she now has a new job as housemaid to the Garricks. But nothing is as it seems and before too long things begin to take a chilling turn as Millie opens the door to Mrs Garrick’s room and sees something that changes everything…

To say much more would give too much away, so all I will say is that The Housemaid’s Secret is a brilliantly plotted, dark and shocking psychological thriller that will stay with me for a long time to come. Freida McFadden has written a strong and character driven sequel that completely blew me away and I loved every single word of it!

A dark and twisted read that will chill you to the bone, The Housemaid’s Secret is a book that I would highly recommend.

The Housemaid’s Secret by Freida McFadden is available to purchase now.
