Mehso-so

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.

Although probably not my favorite Gilly MacMillan novel, this one was decent and kind of creepy/evil. Is the Nanny who she says she is, or is she not? Several unlikeable main characters and the ending was a bit far fetched, but the story did keep me guessing.

It's a slow start and gets a bit confusing - but you get the hang of it after a few chapters or so. The characters are unlikable but you start to warm up to Virginia once her behavior is explained. I say give it a go. The ending is extremely satisfying.

A young girl growing up in an aristocratic, English family is devastated when here nanny disappears unexpectedly. Years later, bones are uncovered in the lake on the property and a woman claiming to be the missing nanny, shows up at the door. Lies, deception, and family conflict is uncovered as the mysterious women becomes enmeshed in the family‘s life. This book kept me guessing about the fate of the nanny and the dead body until the end.

Couch time with Rose as I dive into this thriller by Gilly Macmillan. It‘s a quick read so far, thankfully, because my neighbor lent it to me weeks ago and I need to return it!

In 1988, Lord and Lady Holt‘s Nanny took off in the night, leaving their daughter, Jo, alone. Thirty years later, Jo is back at the family home and the nanny shows up out of nowhere. Now she has to find out why her nanny left and why is she back. I must say that there is a character in this book that is so vile and evil that I actually cheered when someone bad happened..lol. A great thriller by @HarperCollins
