Further to my recent top-secret post, I’m super-excited to share with the world the cover for my new psychological thriller, THE BABYSITTER, coming in March as part of a three-book deal from Bookouture!

Isn’t it just awesome?

Bookouture publishes an amazingly talented list of crime and thriller authors, as well as women’s fiction and romance, and I am thrilled to bits to be part of this fabulous, forward thinking company working with Helen Jenner as my editor. If I’d wished for something wonderful for Christmas, this would be it. A massive thank you to all the hard-working people at Bookouture for making it happen.

I can’t resist sharing the blurb below. I hope you love it as much as I do.

You trust her with your family. Would you trust her with your life?

Mark and Melissa Cain are thrilled to have found Jade, a babysitter who is brilliant with their young children. Having seen her own house burn to the ground, Jade needs them as much as they need her. Moving Jade into the family home can only be a good thing, can’t it?

As Mark works long hours as a police officer and Melissa struggles with running a business, the family become ever more reliant on their babysitter, who is only too happy to help. And as Melissa begins to slip into depression, it’s Jade who is left picking up the pieces.

But Mark soon notices things aren’t quite as they seem. Things at home feel wrong, and as Mark begins to investigate their seemingly perfect sitter, what he discovers shocks him to his core. He’s met Jade before. And now he suspects he might know what she wants …

Mark is in a race against time to protect his family. But what will he find as he goes back to his family home?

If you loved reading The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and The Sister, you’ll love the suspense of The Babysitter. This unputdownable read will have you turning the pages until way after dark.
