The Housemaid’s Secret Review

Freida McFadden is quickly becoming my favorite thriller author. Her stories are not too long and there’s enough twists to keep you engaged throughout the whole book. We’re introduced to a small group of characters and nothing is over the top or overwhelming. ALSO she always finds a way to tie it back to Millie in the end. Yes, Marybeth ultimately kills both Russell and Wendy, but Millie provides the heart medicine. Brock is an idiot. Enzo, we love Enzo! Although he probably could’ve not stalked for three months when he knows about Millie’s past. And honestly, I feel bad for Douglas. He wanted a wife and a family, instead he got Wendy. Good for him changing his will at the last minute. That felt like a CEO mindset.


Yes, The Housemaid’s Secret is the second book in a series. The first book is titled, The Housemaid.

This book is 318 pages long.

The Housemaid’s Secret is available to borrow on Kindle Unlimited.
