Claudia has everything she has ever wanted. She has a husband, two boys, and a baby on the way that she has wanted for a long time. She loves her job as a social worker, so she hires Zoe as a nanny to help her around the house. Despite Zoe's recommendations and connection with the boys, Claudia does not trust her. With several pregnant women being attacked in the area, Claudia begins to realize how vulnerable she is, and that she has a stranger living in her home. As she digs into Zoe's past, she makes unsettling discoveries that could have great impact on her life.
I thought this seemed like an interesting mystery as it explores the idea of how far a person will go to have a child of their own. I liked that at times I would start to guess what was happening, as you do when reading a mystery, and something would happen that would make me second guess my original thought. At times it was a little more convoluted then I would prefer, but it was an alright mystery.
I think this is a good distraction novel if you like mysteries that keep you reading but do not require a lot of attention. I did not get overly attached to the plot or the characters. There was a lot of information/misinformation that could overwhelm the story at some points. I also felt that some of the plot points were not necessary and distracted me from what the story was really about. I think some of it was suppose to help us connect with the characters or fill in the story, but it did not seem necessary to the real story to me. On the whole it was a okay mystery.
If you like mysteries I would give it a try.
