Looking for an addictive psychological thriller with a shocking twist? Look no further than Freida McFadden’s USA Today bestseller, The Housemaid.
The story follows an unnamed protagonist who is looking for a fresh start. She finds it when she is hired by the wealthy Winchester family to be their housemaid. But as she becomes more immersed in their lives, she realizes that their secrets are far more dangerous than her own.
Every day, she cleans the Winchester’s beautiful house from top to bottom, picks up their daughter from school, and even cooks them dinner. But as she navigates the intricacies of the family, she begins to notice that something is amiss. Nina, the matriarch, enjoys making a mess just to watch the protagonist clean it up, and Andrew, the patriarch, seems to be suffering from a deep pain.
Despite these red flags, the protagonist finds herself imagining what it would be like to have Nina’s life – the designer clothes, the fancy car, the perfect husband. And when she tries on one of Nina’s dresses, things take a turn for the worse. Suddenly, she realizes that the Winchesters don’t know who she really is – or what she’s capable of.
The Housemaid is the perfect read for fans of Ruth Ware, Lisa Jewell, and Verity. McFadden’s writing will keep you on the edge of your seat, eagerly turning the page to see what happens next. And when the big twist is finally revealed, you’ll be left reeling.
But what sets The Housemaid apart from other thrillers is McFadden’s writing style. She injects humor into her dark story, making for an overall fun reading experience. Even as the protagonist finds herself in increasingly dangerous situations, she can’t help but make snarky comments and poke fun at the wealthy family she serves.
And while the manuscript may have been completed before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, The Housemaid feels particularly relevant in today’s world. As the protagonist navigates the intricacies of the Winchester family, she realizes that their wealth and power allow them to get away with almost anything – an unsettling realization that feels all too familiar.
Overall, The Housemaid is a thrill ride you won’t want to miss. But be warned – once you start reading, you won’t be able to put it down. So cancel your plans and settle in for a wild ride. Your heart may race and your palms may sweat, but trust us – it’s worth it.
