E surprises you in the most swoonworthy and unexpected of waysTo be honest I ve read about three of Melissa Nathan s novels and I can say that no one does social commedy family life or intense romance as well as sheShe is to me early death and glorious carreer left in the middle aside the modern Jane Austen no doubt about it Her novels aren t chick lit they re not romances they re not comedies They are literature I particularly enjoyed how she uses themes and tropes from Jane Austen s books but twists them around to fit completely original plots and charactersThe Nanny for instance is not a retelling but it has SO many beloved aspects of Pride and Prejudice Emma Sense and Sensibility and even Mansfield Park a little bit It s the best thing that s happened to me since I discovered Austen in my early teens and now that I m slowly making my way around her books much like I did with Jane s back then I know that they ll be all read soon and I won t know what to do with myselfReread them I guessIf you re sad or tired or ust in need of a good book ust grab

Absolutely Loved This BookAsd Insane this bookAsd insane it sounds I think this was because it completely reminded me of my own life asides from the handsome son part but I moved from a small town to be a nanny in london and I can guarantee that she has
captured the feelings nursery mums first friends and the feelings nursery mums first friends and brilliantlyThe book is written from several different perspectives including the children which I think is brilliant Because there are so many entertwining stories going on it makes the book all the excitingThe ending was perhaps a bit predictable but what do you expect in chick litI couldn t put itdown and will certainly be reading it again Jo has spent her entire life in Niblet Upon Avon and needs to get out so when she s given the chance to take a ob as a nanny in London she An Allegheny Homecoming jumps at the chance Of course this means leaving her long time boyfriend at home But the prospect of a new setting and aob in a fancy house with her own car cell phone and private suite will soften that blow Jo gets along famously with her new employers and her three charges and all seems to be going wonderfully until her employer s grown up and very attractive son from a previous marriage moves back home and into Jo s suite Jo can t figure Josh out Sometimes they seem to be friends and other times he seems to hate her And on top of everything else she s pretty sure that Josh is helping his father hide a secret from the rest of the family a secret that she finds impossible to forgive But as Jo is soon to find out Josh may not be the only one harboring a secretSuch fun chick lit I have enjoyed every Melissa Nathan book I ve read so far they are always clean for the most part things may be referred to but that s about it and fluffy with fun characters and the writing is good too Just good solid chick lit I recently dsicovered Melissa NathanThe first book I read by her was Persuading Annie a Persuasion retelling if you don t know by now that Persuasion is my favorite Jane Austen novel you really should subscribe to this blog Most Eligible Sheriff (Sweetheart, Nevada jk and I instantly fell in love with her humor her wit and her swoooooooony scenesAnd then I grabbed the nannyHere is the synopsisTwenty three year old Jo Green knows that if she has to spend one night in ultra provincial Niblet Upon Avon she ll go completely bonker.
