The Housekeeper - Review - Part of the BookSparks #Wintervention #WinterReadingChallenge

With no family, Anne Morgan tends to cling to the people in her life.  But when her boyfriend, and boss, cheats on her she’s left picking up the pieces and in need of a job.  Thankfully the daily affirmation emails that she gets from Emma Helmsley are still one positive that she gets to look forward to. 

Emma Helmsley is the English version of Martha Stewart.  Through her books and social media, she offers her readers advice on how to live a less stressful life while living in a stressful world.  Married with two children, they appear to be the poster family for the perfect life. 

When Anne comes across a post online that Emma is in search of a housekeeper it becomes her mission to get in with the family.  And, when she does, her love and admiration for the Helmsleys keep her from seeing the truth behind the perfect fa├žade.
