“Welcome to the family,” Nina Winchester says as I shake her elegant, manicured hand. I smile politely, gazing around the marble hallway. Working here is my last chance to start fresh. I can pretend to be whoever I like. But I’ll soon learn that the Winchesters’ secrets are far more dangerous than my own…
Every day I clean the Winchesters’ beautiful house top to bottom. I collect their daughter from school. And I cook a delicious meal for the whole family before heading up to eat alone in my tiny room on the top floor.
I try to ignore how Nina makes a mess just to watch me clean it up. How she tells strange lies about her own daughter. And how her husband Andrew seems more broken every day. But as I look into Andrew’s handsome brown eyes, so full of pain, it’s hard not to imagine what it would be like to live Nina’s life. The walk-in closet, the fancy car, the perfect husband.
I only try on one of Nina’s pristine white dresses once. Just to see what it’s like. But she soon finds out… and by the time I realize my attic bedroom door only locks from the outside, it’s far too late.
But I reassure myself: the Winchesters don’t know who I really am.
Freida McFadden… I kept starting this review and erasing it only to start again. I have no words for your amazing writing skills and on so many levels I just don’t think I could do this book justice. I’ll start by saying this… I’m sure everyone can agree that when vacationing on a beach with limited time to enjoy a good book… the book better be good! My goal was to finish it in the week I knew I had before returning home. Well…
I devoured this book in a day and I was sweating bullets as I turned pages furiously in the last half. This book had SO many unexpected twists. So much so, I was oblivious to the intense sunshine that I spent hours lying under while engrossed in this crazy plot of characters. (I blame Freida for my sunburn lol)
You have one crazy brain Freida McFadden and I love it! You have invented a plot of characters that will keep readers awake at night thinking about. Just when you think you know who the crazy one is… believe me… you don’t! Buckle up people… this is one fabulous ride you won’t want to miss!
Without revealing spoilers about the actual storyline I will just say … the description is enough to draw you in. From one avid psychological thriller to another, this one won’t disappoint!!!
