The Perfect Nanny

Shari J. Ryan

“My baby! You stole my baby!” Lara Smith is hysterical, her red lipstick smeared. A teddy lies abandoned in the empty crib. But I didn’t know the Smiths had a baby. I didn’t even know this nursery existed…

Lara’s husband—deathly white—dials 911 and says: “The babysitter has taken our little girl.”

I’m in shock. This is impossible. Because earlier this evening when the Smiths left for their fancy charity gala—Lara in high heels and a floor-length gown, Corbin in a tux—they never mentioned a baby. And they certainly didn’t show me this nursery room, up in the eaves of their sprawling, beachfront mansion.

The Smiths only hired me to take care of their nine-year-old twins, now blinking at me in matching horror.

As I’m taken away in handcuffs, I try to swallow my terror.

Because my being here is no coincidence.

When my own darkest secret is spilled, will anyone believe I’m innocent?

And who is really in danger: This perfect couple? Their missing child? Or me?

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller that will get your heart racing like crazy. Prepare yourself for jaw-dropping, mind-blowing twists! Perfect for fans of addictive page-turners like The Housemaid, The Family Across the Street and The Family Upstairs.
