The Housesitter

A novel by

No job, no boyfriend, no plans for the future . . .

No wonder Megan Quinn is thrilled when she lands a fabulous housesitting gig in an affluent Los Angeles suburb. John Davis, the homeowner who posted the ad, explains he's desperate for someone to take care of his house and his cat while he's away on an extended business trip.

Megan immediately settles into her new home, which has everything she could want: plenty of space, a luxurious swimming pool, and the solitude she craves. And she immediately falls in love with Endora, John's engaging feline.

So when weird things suddenly start happening, she doesn't want to believe anything could be amiss. Even her creepy neighbor, who clearly has a crush on her, doesn't dampen her enthusiasm. Before long, though, Megan senses that while she's watching the house, she's being watched as well.

She tells herself there's a reasonable explanation for all the strange coincidences ... until a string of ominous, heart-stopping events finally convinces Megan there's serious trouble in her Paradise. But will her realization come too late?

The Housesitter is a gripping psychological thriller that explores the darkest corners of the human mind, its unexpected twists and startling revelations serving as proof that things are not always what they seem.

Wonderfully creepy and filled with surprising twists, The Housesitter pulls you in on page one and doesn't let you go until the final sentence. An engrossing, terrifying read.

If you think Psycho and Misery covered all the bases, think again. This riveting novel puts such a chilling new spin on the game of cat-and-mouse it should come with a Nightmare Alert!
