Book Review: The Babysitter by Sheryl Browne

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?

I’ve chosen this book as part of the reading challenge 9. Read a book on your TBR list. I could have gone for so many other ones as my TBR list is pretty much never ending but I chose it, because I really wanted to read it, finally. I’ve heard so much about this book and the cover was what totally drawn me towards it at the first place.

I must admit, knowing who the main antagonist was from the beginning threw me a bit. It’s quite unusual and I wasn’t sure if the book will hold my attention but it did. It wasn’t so much about knowing Jade was after Mark and his family, it was following and watching her well made web of lies and deceive. What a great plan she had and how she went to get what she believed was hers.

This book was well written and made me turn pages just to see what Jade, Melissa or Mark will do next. I felt quite involved in the story and the fact that I knew who is all behind it didn’t change my opinion about this book. I really enjoyed reading it and I hope you will to 😁
