    Fácil de ler. História envolvente, que te mantém grudado no livro. Vou procurar outros da mesma autora.

    Brace yourself, because “The Housemaid” is a novel that will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish, constantly questioning everything you think you know. Just when you believe you’ve unraveled the twisted narrative, author Freida McFadden pulls the rug out from under you, leaving you breathless and craving more. This book is a true masterclass in psychological suspense that demands to be devoured in a single, uninterrupted sitting.

    From the opening chapters, McFadden weaves an intricate web of mystery and deceit, introducing readers to a cast of complex characters and a seemingly idyllic suburban setting that harbors dark secrets beneath its pristine veneer. The story’s central figure, the enigmatic housemaid Millie, is a captivating presence, her motivations and allegiances constantly shifting, keeping you guessing about her true nature until the very end.

    As the plot unfolds, the tension ratchets up with each turn of the page, as McFadden deftly plants seeds of doubt and suspicion, forcing you to question the reliability of every character’s perspective. Just when you think you’ve pieced together the puzzle, she expertly upends your assumptions, leaving you reeling and eagerly devouring the next twist or revelation.

    What truly sets “The Housemaid” apart, however, is its ability to not only shock and surprise but also to delve into the depths of human psychology and the complexities of familial relationships. McFadden’s exploration of themes such as trust, loyalty, and the lengths to which people will go to protect their loved ones adds a compelling emotional layer to the narrative, making the characters and their plights resonate long after the final page.

    From the meticulously crafted plot to the richly developed characters and the haunting atmospheric backdrop, every element of “The Housemaid” is a testament to McFadden’s skill as a writer. She masterfully keeps you off-balance, constantly second-guessing your assumptions and reveling in the delicious uncertainty that permeates every chapter.

    In the end, this book is an absolute must-read for fans of psychological thrillers and suspense novels. It’s a true page-turner in every sense of the word, a book that will keep you captivated from start to finish, leaving you breathless and utterly floored by its brilliant execution. Do yourself a favor and clear your schedule before diving into “The Housemaid” – because once you start, you won’t be able to put it down until the jaw-dropping conclusion.

    The first book I read by Frieda had me unimpressed and wondering if I should read anything by here again. I’m glad I chose to try another one! This book had me from the first chapter! I knew there had to be something crazy going on and I still didn’t even have a thought of what it could be until over half way through! Nina is a wife and mother who needs some help at home. Nina hires Millie to help and then get ready for the ride! Millie is down on her luck and is desperate to find any job that will accept her with her background. Getting this job would solve everything or will it….

    The Housemaid has always been one of my favorites. The Housemaid is Watching publishes on June 11 so I decided it was time to give this a re-read!

    There are many reasons why I love this book, it grabs you and doesn’t let you go. The plot is so well developed and fast, this is one of those “read in 24 hours” books. And I quite literally read it in 24 hours both times I read this.

    Another thing I love about this book (and all of Freida’s books honestly) is everything about the characters. I have nothing in common with Millie whatsoever, but seeing her development throughout the story was one of the best parts

    Freida is the QUEEN of twists. With this being a re-read from a year ago, some of them still tricked me. I went from “Nina is so annoying” to “omg Nina went through the RINGER”

    This book thoroughly creeped me out at some parts, like the 100 strands of hair?? NOPE BYE

    If you like fast paced, suspenseful psychological thrillers please read this. I will not let you down.

    “Welcome to the family,” Nina Winchester says as I shake her elegant, manicured hand. I smile politely, gazing around the marble hallway. Working here is my last chance to start fresh. I can pretend to be whoever I like. But I’ll soon learn that the Winchesters’ secrets are far more dangerous than my own…

    Every day I clean the Winchesters’ beautiful house top to bottom. I collect their daughter from school. And I cook a delicious meal for the whole family before heading up to eat alone in my tiny room on the top floor.

    I try to ignore how Nina makes a mess just to watch me clean it up. How she tells strange lies about her own daughter. And how her husband Andrew seems more broken every day. But as I look into Andrew’s handsome brown eyes, so full of pain, it’s hard not to imagine what it would be like to live Nina’s life. The walk-in closet, the fancy car, the perfect husband.

    I only try on one of Nina’s pristine white dresses once. Just to see what it’s like. But she soon finds out… and by the time I realize my attic bedroom door only locks from the outside, it’s far too late.

    But I reassure myself: the Winchesters don’t know who I really am.

    They don’t know what I’m capable of…

    My Thoughts:

    The journey with The Housemaid kept me turning pages rapidly. Back and forth we go, trying to figure out the secrets that will keep the characters on their toes.

    I thought my favorite was Millie, but then the story flips and we learn more about Nina. Nothing is quite what it seems.

    Will Nina turn out to be a character we enjoy, too?

    By the end, all is sorted. 5 stars.

    That was a rollercoaster. I thought part one was a little slow but it was necessary for part two to hit the way it did. Part two was completely addicting and I didn’t set the book down until I was done with it. This book is also not the genre that I traditionally read but man am I a sucker for a good psychological thriller. I’m really glad I gave this book a try and I recommend others give it a try as well.
