Top 5 Freida McFadden’s Books Ranked:

The Housemaid by Freida McFadden

The Housemaid
By McFadden, Freida

Buy on Amazon

This is by far Freida’s most popular book. In this edge-of-the-seat thriller, an ex-convict gets hired as a housemaid in this mysterious household. There are secrets and twists that will keep you guessing until the very end.

This is book one in what it seems will be a trilogy following Millie’s jobs as a housemaid.

Never Lie  by Freida McFadden

In this book, we follow a famed psychiatrist who mysteriously disappeared after her latest book launched and a couple who stumbles upon her old household. There is a snowstorm and they are stuck in the house full of secrets. This book follows a dual timeline between the psychiatrist and the wife who happens to be at the house. Best to go blind as to how both timelines converge.

The Perfect Son by Freida McFadden

A mother is worried that her son is a psychopath so she does everything in her power to protect those around her son. But is he a psychopath or is there someone more sinister around? Great on audio.

Want to Know a Secret? By Freida McFadden

Truly a domestic drama, where a stay-at-home mom/YouTuber is keeping a secret, and her world is crumbling. This book is full of rich stay-at-home moms behaving badly. This was a fun, edge-of-your-seat domestic drama.  Excellent on audio.

The Ex by Freida McFadden

This is another domestic, psychological thriller that you can read in one sitting.  This book follows a dual POV between the current girlfriend and the ex. We are unsure how they are related and how they converge. It does have some interesting twists in the end.

The Housemaid
By McFadden, Freida

Buy on Amazon

What to Read After Finishing Freida McFadden’s Backlist?

My suggestion is to binge Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake series or A.R. Torre various standalone thrillers such The Good Lie and  Every Last Secret. All of these books are available on Kindle Unlimited.
