Publisher's Summary

As I clutched baby Chloe’s blanket, tears streamed down my face as I remembered what happened the night she disappeared. Looking up at the apartment block I once called home, my mind was crowded with memories. David’s words echoed in my head, telling me to get out and never come back. I understood why: Our mistake had ruined everything.

When I accepted a job working as a nanny for David and Julie and their young children, I was excited to be making my own way in the world. I bonded with baby Chloe instantly and would have done anything for her. She had David's thick, dark hair and smiling eyes. I fell in love with her and was excited for my future.

But when a terrible mistake led to Chloe disappearing, I was instantly blamed. With no evidence, I was let go and I returned home to rebuild my life.

Twenty years later and I am still haunted by what happened. I have a family of my own now, and I’ve worked hard to be the best wife and mother I can be, but I’ve never forgotten the child who stole my heart.

Then a young woman arrives on my doorstep, and the past secret that I have kept from my family comes hurtling into my present.

I try to tell myself that I am overreacting. But the woman in front of me looks so much like David. Who is she, and why is she here? And if I welcome her in will she want to be a part of my life, or destroy it?

A totally addictive psychological thriller. Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, T.M. Logan, and Shalini Boland.

Good but a bit predictable

I love these suspense novels . I generally and surprised at the ending, but I found myself getting frustrated with the protagonist most of the novel for not speaking up for herself and not “getting it” sooner. What I knew early on in the book. But it was an exciting read nonetheless.

So Many Nanny Books.....

So many "Nanny" books, so little time.

"The Nanny" was a thriller that lacked thrills.

Although the "What really happened 20 years ago?" premise had potential, the book was slow-paced, predictable, and repetitious.

I listened to the audiobook and the book would have benefited from multiple narrators.

One star rounded up.
