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.
This started off like it was going to be a dark domestic thriller but as it evolved it became much more sympathetic and instead of Liv being the villain, she’s much more understandable – she’s grieving and has been misled.
Sophy also isn’t a bad person and deserves sympathy. In fact the person who has caused harm is a surprise in a way; their behaviour is completely shocking and not really understandable.
There are quite a few dubious characters, people whose behaviour is questionable and odd. It made Sophy’s fears understandable.
I just wish the babies had been the bad guys, now that would be the twist!
