The Housemaid's Secret
Sequel to The Housemaid—a nominee last year in the Mystery & Thriller category—The Housemaid’s Secret is the first Goodreads Choice Award for author (and practicing physician) Freida McFadden. The new novel finds maid-with-a-secret Millie Calloway in another dodgy situation as author McFadden delivers her patented blend of psychological suspense and switchback plot twists.
