The Nanny

The Nanny Review

Twenty-three-year-old Jo Green knows that if she has to spend one more night in ultra-provincial Niblet-Upon-Avon she'll go completely bonkers! So she answers an ad in the paper, bids her devoted boyfriend Shaun adieu, and heads off to the big city. With a new job that offers excitement; a cool car; and her own suite with a TV, DVD player, and a cell phone, how can she go wrong?

Then she meets . . . the Fitzgeralds -- Dick and Vanessa and their unruly brood of rugrats who have suddenly been entrusted into Jo's care. There's eight-year-old "psycho-babe" Cassandra; bloodthirsty Zak, the six-year-old Terminator; and timid little Tallulah.

So what else could go wrong? How about the arrival of Dick's children from his first marriage: teenage Toby and (gulp!) all-grown-up-and-very-nicely-at-that Josh the accountant? And now that she has to temporarily share her room with Josh, Jo's head is really in a spin -- because with her hometown beau still in the picture and a sexy possibility sleeping just a foot away, life has suddenly gotten very complicated indeed!

    I absolutely loved this book.Asd insane as it sounds, I think this was mainly because it completely reminded me of my own life (asides from the handsome son part) but, I moved from a small town to be ...

    I loved this book. The quiet, quirky, lovable main character and her family seemed very alive to me. Her little wards were funny and realistic, the supporting characters interesting and dynamic. And I...

    Audiobook. New to me author. Loved the humour and creativity in the writing. Laughed out loud many times during this book. Only complaint, abrupt ending. Well worth the time to listen....
