When Millie, a young woman with a checkered past, lands a live-in housekeeping job in a fancy house with a rich Long Island family it seems too good to be true. It’s a perfect job for her despite the accommodations she was given, a miniscule room in the attic but it is luxurious compared to her previous living arrangement.
Millie has a lot to hide and does her best to fly under the radar. However, not long after moving in with the family she realizes they are not as perfect as they appear and that she, and others in the household are in grave danger. Who is the source of the threat? Why is the gardener sending warning signals to Millie? What terrible secrets are being kept by this completely dysfunctional family?
All will be revealed as you delve into this warped, twisted story. The Housemaid has lots of twists and turns, an unreliable narrator and a nasty, nasty cast of characters. If you like face-paced, edge of your seat psychological thrillers this book would appeal to you.
