About the Book:
You trust her with your home, your husband, your baby… but she is about to destroy it all. Sophy Pemberton is struggling to cope with the pressures of becoming a new mother. Her nine-month-old son never settles in her arms and the unrelenting tiredness from late night feeds is all consuming. So, when Liv Granger from the mother and baby group offers her services as a nanny, Sophy is overcome with relief. Now she can finally get some sleep… She can stop failing at being a mother. But Liv has a secret. She is convinced that Sophy was accountable for her brother’s tragic death and she has been searching for her for years. And now that Liv’s found her, she’s outraged Sophy seems oblivious to the pain she has caused her family. Sophy’s perfect house, perfect husband and perfect baby are too much for Liv to bear… and she’s going to make her pay.

My Review:

This one started off really slow for me, but I did enjoy that it was told by two ponts of view, in alternating chapters. I also liked that every single time I thought I knew who the culprit was...I was proven wrong. I did figure out one of the surprises pretty early on but was left shocked with the big reveal. The ending itself...three years later...was pretty creepy good too! 

What I didn't like was Sophy being so ill and no one...not even Sophy herself...did anything about it. She had all those mummy "friends", a husband, her sis-in-law, a nanny and her mother-in-law and not ONE person suggested she go to a hospital when she has fainted a couple times. I found this a little unbelievable...even if it did fit the narrative. All in all a pretty good read in the end, deserving of three and half stars. 

Thank you NetGalley, Karen Clarke, Amanda Brittany and HQ Digital for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
