  • Unsettling Domestic Noir

    Believe it or not, this is my first book by Phoebe Morgan, though I have had The Doll House on my radar for a while. I'm delighted to have rectified this and I thoroughly enjoyed The Babysitter, an engrossing tale of mystery, duplicity and suspense. The book is narrated from multiple viewpoints, across two timescales. Caroline Harvey is a lonely young woman who has been asked by her friend Jenny Grant to babysit her daughter Eve, so that Jenny and husband Rick can visit his ill and elderly mother. Siobhan Dillon, her husband Callum, daughter Emma, and sister Maria are travelling to southern France for a relaxing break, staying at Maria's lovely, luxurious holiday villa. But when Caroline is found having been stabbed, with no sign of baby Eve, the police go knocking on Maria's door in France, looking for Callum. So where is Eve and what exactly took place that terrible evening? Phoebe Morgan has a very appealing style of writing and the characters she created though not remotely likeable, were very believable, giving me a great sense of apprehensiveness and foreboding. I liked the fluidity between past and present and I found The Babysitter very readable, the various unfolding of events and revelations making this book very gripping. The story-line was absolutely fantastic and the suspense was kept at a maximum level as was the pacing. In this tense tale of betrayal, wrongdoing, jealousy and revenge, Phoebe Morgan wrapped everything up very neatly in with a great big bow in a thrilling, though not totally unexpected ending which was rather satisfying. This was an absolute pleasure to read and even if the plot had been less stimulating I would have devoured these pages with equal gusto and enthusiasm. I’ll certainly be looking out for more from Phoebe Morgan! I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request, from HQ via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion. Thank you also to Pigeonhole and Phoebe Morgan for the opportunity to read this book!

    Thanks for your feedback!
