The tapestry of characters woven into Melissa Nathan's third novel is impressive,from the childrens antics at school to the nannies and bickering parents, each person is presented in depth.The sexual tension between Jo and her new flatmate Josh is entertainingly written.
You could be deceived by the cover into thinking this is just another chick lit.Its addictive to read, hilarious in parts, i found it hard to put down.I was only dissapointed when i finnished it that there wasn't more.This book is definitely on a par with 'Ralph's party'
Give this one a try - you wont be dissappointed.Its an interesting insight into the life of a nanny, and a satisfying love story, full of wit and humour.
It might sound an exaggeration, but it actually made me re - evaluate the priorities in my life and about how I view it!
I was able to identify with the character of Jo, and her hopes and aspirations. Her safe relationship with Shaun, her claustrophobic family, and the frightening realisation that not every body lives their lives as her family does.
You experience the gradual freedom she feels as she meets Pippa, and of course the relationship with Josh, as their friendship develops. The writing of Vanessa and Dick's conversations is wonderful, and also the childrens characters are beautifully created.
This book had me laughing and crying. A book you will not want to put down, and one that will make you want to go out and take life by the scruff of the neck!
Well worth the read.
I especially enjoyed the character of Jo, as she tried to unravel her own wants and desires -- and opinions! Josh was so very well written that I know at least six men exactly like him -- and it does seem to be rare that we see well rounded and thoroughly created male characters in books these days.
The Nanny did a great job of occupying a sleating spring day, and has now begun its journey through my friends! Keep up the wonderful writing Ms. Nathan!

I really loved this book. It's very simple chick-lit with girl likes boy, boy likes girl but both pretend they don't due to circumstances but is so light hearted and a fun read. Read morePublished on 4 Aug. 2014 by Sweatpea
