The Nanny

Really enjoyed how the suspense slowly built in this novel. I had sympathy for some of the characters and the story unfolded to a neat ending. Very good read.

Predictable in part, not the most thrilling storyline and the ending is a cop out. However, an easy read and some well written characters make this a little more interesting to read.
