I generally never read a book before it is released. Apologies to the Bookouture team. I know they like reviews around publication days. But read on… I am really not at fault.
But when I opened kindle, having not found the perfect book to suit my mood, this book was right in front of me, and I just wanted to taste a few chapters.
So I started reading and reading and reading and it was the end. The book by author Julia Crouch made some crazy turns, and the connections between the characters made my head spin.
An Instagram influencer, a social media I am quite frequently found at, advertised for a Mother’s Helper, when she became pregnant, for the safe health of mother and baby.
I loved how the social media was represented, a section of influencer society, where most of the paid partnerships affected the veracity of their posts. The story could be read in a few hours.
Abbie applied for the post and won it. She was wondrous about the world Rachel resided in, until the masks fell off. Hidden agendas resided in everyone.
With only 2 characters, it was easy to guess how the story would go, not every scene. But what I found it amazing I remembered everything about these characters long after I finished reading the book. I am usually read-and-forget-and get on to the next.
At a couple of places I found the characters could have been better developed. But fear not, they were equally unlikable. Yet memorable. Credit to the author.
Final impressions – easy book to read, loved to hate the characters, twists were quite a zig-zag. Read it when you get to it.

You live with her. You trust her. But you don’t know her…
Wanted: full-time, live-in help for expectant mother. Must be organised, friendly and willing to do anything.
Rachel is determined to be the perfect mother. She has a birth plan, with a playlist and a bag ready by the door. She’s chosen a lovely light cream paint for the nursery, and in wide-eyed, innocent Abbie she’s found the perfect person to help her with her baby.
Because every mother needs a bit of help, don’t they?
But Rachel needs a little more than most.
She still makes sure her bedroom door is locked before she goes to sleep. She still checks the cameras that are dotted throughout the house.
Rachel trusts Abbie.
She just knows better than to trust herself…

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
