5 Psychological Suspense Books Featuring Caregivers, Nannies, and Maids

No one knows a family’s secrets more intimately than their staff. The nanny knows what makes the children tick or what food to prepare to make them happy. The housekeeper knows the best places to hide a body. In these tales, care givers sign up for more than what they’ve bargained for. Everyone is hiding their darkest secrets from each other, but no secret can stay hidden forever, especially when dead bodies start turning up. In these psychological suspense novels, protagonists must rely on their wits, instincts, cunning, and proximity to decipher the truth from lies if they want to make it out alive.
