The Babysitter: A gripping psychological thriller with edge of your seat suspense

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?

If you loved reading The Girl on the TrainBehind Closed Doors and The Sister, you’ll love the suspense of The Babysitter. This unputdownable read will have you turning the pages until way after dark.

You trust her with your family. Would you trust her with your life?

You know the age old saying … when something seems too good to be true, it probably is!

The opening scene in this book is fantastic! It has everything… a whirl wind of chaos surrounding a family, a devastating fire, a survivor and a past that’s unforgettable!

Fast forward to present times… Melissa and DI Mark Cain are happily married with two beautiful children. Mark works on cases involving child victims. He will never forget the little girl who survived the fire 7 years ago. Now he’s working on another case involving a missing little girl, Daisy. One day a neighboring house goes up in flames and the young tenant is left homeless. Jade, a friendly, sweet, young woman seems like the nicest neighbor. It wouldn’t be right not to offer her a place to stay while her situation is sorted out.

Jade quickly becomes the babysitter of the year, always seeming to be in the right place at the right time. Melissa, a busy working mom who has recovered from depression in the past, is so grateful for Jade.

After a series of weird, unpredictable events surround their family, the reader is forced to think…there’s something else going on here. Why do things keep going so horrible wrong? Are these happenings a coincidence?

Why does Jade seem connected to the disasters this family is experiencing!

We LOVED this book! Knowing the antagonist from the beginning gave the story a different twist on what might have turned out to be a predictable ending. Instead of spending the time trying to figure out who was behind all things gone wrong, the reader spends a lot of time screaming at Mel because she isn’t seeing what we see!

Jade is the kind of character that you love to hate, yet oddly feel yourself pulling for! Awesome, twisty, fast paced, heart pounding read! We will absolutely be reading more from Sheryl Browne!

Thank you Bookouture for the ARC of this wonderful book in exchange for our honest review! 5 Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So why does Sheryl write in two genres? Quoting E. L. Doctorow, Sheryl says: “Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights…” This she thinks sums up a writer’s journey, you never quite know where you are going until you get there. You might start with an outline, but a strong character will always divert from the plot. If Sheryl’s not sure where a character is going, she simply has to trust him to show her the way.
