About this deal

In this book she introduces the bystander effect, which is a really fascinating theory (definitely worth looking up if you have the time! I also recommend both The Housemaid and The Housemaid’s Secret as they are fun, entertaining, thrilling reads! Instead of an explosive, shocking reveal near the end, I found the conclusion to be drawn out and tedious. Cleverly plotted, complex and multi-layered, Millie discovers that she is not the only one whose life is built on secrets and lies and comes face to face with a master manipulator. his presence alone had me screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain and it's 2am and i'm cursing your name, you're so in love that you act insane and that's the way i loved you.

if you're simply looking for a fast-paced read and don't mind sacrificing character development (or can tolerate millie), then this book is right up your alley.our favourite cleaning lady, millie is back and struggling but now she is dating brock, who is unaware of her troubled past. I was turned down for the ARC by NetGalley and was so excited to get my hands on this highly anticipated book. initially, she seemed unchanged, but as the story progressed, she became increasingly exasperating and bothersome. it's such a shame that you'll be sad because you'll be unable to enjoy the most exciting part due to the spoiler ahead, hehe! Then she sees Wendy with a busted up face and at some point Millie gets Wendy out of the PENTHOUSE APARTMENT ON THE UPPER WEST SIDE and to a cheap motel that is even worse than the SOUTH BRONX, but Douglas finds her and brings her back to the PENTHOUSE APARTMENT and continues to escalate the abuse.

So I thank my lucky stars that the Garricks miraculously gave me a job, cleaning their stunning penthouse with views across the city and preparing fancy meals in their shiny kitchen. even though i read this book in less than 6 hours…it was a bit slower than the first one and that’s one of the very few reasons why i gave it 4 stars. well if you start your book with a cute little sentence like that then i’m bound to read it quite fast😀if you are in a reading slump, then i 10/10 recommend freida’s books! You know--I sure you do--the details of environment and inner feelings, observations that reflect the step by step unfolding of the story.She has been dating Brock for the last six months, an attorney from a well-to-do family, but he does not know about her past, nor is she planning on telling him.

i wanted to go on a whole freida binge and read all her books back to back, but my mind can’t handle that right now.If you have not read a book by Freida McFadden before, I highly recommend picking up one of her books.
