s humor on wealthy people and felt angry at Jo for her blind loyalty This story was a page turner for me up until the middle of the book and then it began to drag I don t enjoy all that arts stuff This book started with a prologue Then the story begins, told in the third person point of view follo This book started out well and won my attention when all of the characters are introduced I liked that each of the characters possesses his her own unique personalities I smiled at Detective Andy s humor on wealthy people and felt angry at Jo for her blind loyalty This story was a page turner for me up until the middle of the book and then it began to drag I don t enjoy all that arts stuff This book started with a prologue Then the story begins, told in the third person point of view following Jocelyn, back in 1987, as she wakes up to find her nanny Hannah gone She loves her nanny for her patience and care, an opposite of what her own mother does for her Thirty years later Jo comes back to

ending The whole book is very mellow and not thrilling to read Of all the characters, I guess I like Virginia because she knows what to do under pressure The prologue is interesting when part of it appears within the story.Pro humor, easy to read, Con slow paced, art stuffs, lack thrills I rate it 4 stars Disclaimer Many thanks to William Morrows for the opportunity to read and review Please be

surprising, slow burn thriller with unlikable but somehow appreciable characters if you handle a little batshit craziness and sociopathic tendencies, they were all right , gripping reading making you captive and forcing you brainstorming about what s going to happen next and then sucker punching you at unforeseeable second with a great revelation BAM Yes giving my four stars and throwing my tequila shot against my mouth This time Chardonnay is too light to absorb this kind of thriller book, trust me OMG what s the thriller authors problem with those nannies Ifbooks are going to be written and released about them, I m afraid most of them will be sacked and all the mothers will bedepressed with crying kids throwing at them at the supermarkets floors for their mothers insensitivity about buying wrong cereals I personally started to be afraid of them and this book completely wiped away entertaining Fran Drescher s Nanny performance on my mind Okay I m taking this back because she was also scary when she performed her signature donkey laughter And Mary Poppins turned into a villanelle by brainwashing those innocent kids with fairytales and illusions I think she may have mixed kids food with hallucinogens and turned them into cult members See how this book affected me to create darker retelling of Mary Poppins on my mind This book is centered between three women and a little girl All two husbands had already gone to heaven or somewhere else Jocelyn s father gives us bad vibes and impression of a naughty boy Jocelyn loses her husband at the tragic traffic accident and her financial problems forced her to move back to the UK with her ten year old girl Ruby to live with her estranged mother Virginia Jo had a troubled relationship with her mother who never showed any affection to her when she was a little child and still blamed her about the sudden leaving of her beloved nanny Hannah She gets agitated to her own daughter for her affection about her grandmother She wants to move from the house to start a new life but financially she can t handle it so she feels trapped in this mansion with her ugly but somewhat blurry childhood memories Virginia seems like a shady, notorious but also clever, sarcastic character and Jocelyn s decisiveness and vagueness about her own past made me think, she is not the evil as she s being told Then one day, A SKULL IS UNCOVERED IN THE LAKE SIDE OF THE ESTATE Does it belong to beloved Hannah who had disappeared years ago But SURPRISE HANNAH is back and she is so keen to be at Jocelyn s service to take care of little Ruby But does she really the person she admitted Well, according to Virginia, it s a little tricky because she might have dropped her dead body at the lake years ago So who is the real evil Who is the biggest liar Had the nanny resurrected or is she a doppelganger What Virginia is hiding from her daughter So many tricky questions like but don t worry when you get your answers you re going to feel like the rug pulled out from under your feet As your back hit the floor, don t curse because choosing the book to read you deserve to be tricked by evil genius brain of this

excellent Told through multiple narrators, each voice offered another layer to the story addingintrigue and intensity My one tiny critique was that some plot points near the end of the book edged on implausible territory, however, it didn t take away from my overall enjoyment I truly loved this novel This was my first book by this author, Gilly Macmillan I was so impressed with her writing that I ordered twoof her books before I even reached the halfway point in this novel The writing is smooth and stunning It locked me in and didn t let me out until I read the last sentence Thank you to
