STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Twisted Me Round Its Little Finger
🧡 So. I was Tow-Tally unprepared for this. I started off thinking this was a Devil-Wears-Prada situation. Girl in NYC gets job with nightmare uber glam boss. Non-spoiler alert: It isn’t. Nor is it a standard thriller.
💚 This is a story of the dark side of grief, of mental illness and the lengths some to which some will go to save face. It is also a shocking indictment of making people pay for healthcare.
💜 It’s definitely a psychological thriller, but with the emphasis on psychological. It has the claustrophobia of Misery and the Prada of The Devil Wears and a twist that will buy my chiropractor a yacht.
Big thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 Emma Ashton delivers a gothic-style performance that keeps the tension ratcheted up. The whole production was so moreish, I sped through it in a day.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER: SIMILAR AUDIOBOOKS
I must be super jaded, because I didn't share Sarah's shock or fear at the delusions. I think I'd have been fine with that part of the job.

When Sarah Larsen answers the Bird family’s advertisement, her life changes overnight.
The job seems like a dream come true: nannying in a glamorous penthouse apartment with a salary that adds several zeroes to her current income.
Sarah signs the contract binding her to complete secrecy without a second thought. These are important people, after all – they can't be too careful about who they let into their home.
All is well until events in Sarah’s life begin to take a sinister turn and the trail leads back to the Birds. She soon realises there's something very strange about the family.
But by then, is it too late for her?
