The Babysitter is a solid mystery with good character development and subplots. A book with a good mystery has the reader second-guessing who they believe the killer is throughout the story, and this one had me guessing until the reveal.
I liked Emma's character, and the author portrayed her well in her mannerisms and cognitive capacity. Emma's small remembrances of what happened to her had me on the edge of my seat because I wanted her to remember more or reveal a clue each time.
There were lots of twists and turns in the storylines, and you never knew quite where the clues would take you, which made for a page-turning adventure.
I liked the relationship between Jamie, the main character, and her daughter, Harley. It portrayed a true mother-teenage daughter love-hate types of interactions.
The story and mystery, the writing, and character development are all executed well. The Babysitter by Nancy Bush is a good read for fans of suspense, mystery, and a never-saw-it-coming ending.
