Unlikable characters and somewhat predictable twists, this is the story of a girl who's nanny goes missing and reappears 30 years later, just as the supposed body is discovered. Meh.
Gilly is quickly becoming one of my go-to authors. When I read the synopsis for this dark and twisty Mary Poppins, I was smitten! Macmillan is an accomplished and methodical writer. This book is equally as polished as her other four novels, but more of a psychological thriller/character study versus a classic thriller type story.
A slow burn, The Nanny is a a tale of secrets, lies, betrayal, and revenge. I highly recommend this book.
