Freida McFadden will join us online to chat about writing psychological thrillers, including her mega-bestselling hit "The Housemaid" series and the third installment, "The Housemaid Is Watching" (due out June 11).

Full of unbelievable twists and tension, the book continues to follow Millie Calloway. She used to clean other people’s houses — now, she can’t believe this new home is actually hers. The charming kitchen, the quiet cul-de-sac, the huge yard where her kids can play. She and her husband saved for years to give their children the life they deserve.

Even though she’s wary of their new neighbor, Mrs. Lowell, when she invites Millie's family over for dinner, it’s their chance to make friends, so they accept the invitation. Mrs. Lowell’s maid opens the door wearing a white apron, her hair in a tight bun. Millie knows exactly what it’s like to be in her shoes, but the maid’s cold stare gives her chills.

The Lowells’ maid isn’t the only strange thing on their street. Millie’s sure she sees a shadowy figure watching them. Her husband leaves the house late at night. And, when she meets a woman who lives across the way, her words chill to the bone: Be careful of your neighbors.

Millie wonders: Did they make a terrible mistake moving their family here?
