After a devastating loss of a close one over Christmas, I’m getting back on track – with a little help and support from my friends ~ thank you!

So, Just in case you haven’t heard, THE BABYSITTER, coming to you from Bookouture on 8th March, is now available for pre-order! For any bloggers or reviewers out there that fancy grabbing it, it’s also available on NetGalley.

I’m also uber-excited to share that the audio book is currently being recorded at the Audio Factory and will be available soon. I’ve heard some of the audio clips and they are amazing. Super-talented Tasmin Kennard is narrating and she has nailed it. There’s nothing quite like hearing your characters speaking to truly bring them to life. I’ll be first in the queue for my copy. I’m just a little bit excited. Can you tell?

Fancy a peek at the Blurb? Oh, go on then…

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.

That’s it! I’ll go away now. Before I do though, I would just like to say a massive thank you again to all those people who have supported me through a difficult family time.
