    If you enjoy a mystery involving family secrets where nothing is quite as it seems, The Nanny is definitely for you Told in alternating points of view, The Nanny tells the tale of Jocelyn Holt as she is forced to return to her childhood home after the death of her husband Jocelyn must face her estranged mother, while trying to put her and her daughter s life back together If that wasn t hard enough a skull is uncovered on the estate s lake, stirring up memories of Jo s beloved Nanny who dis If you enjoy a mystery involving family secrets where nothing is quite as it seems, The Nanny is definitely for you Told in alternating points of view, The Nanny tells the tale of Jocelyn Holt as she is forced to return to her childhood home after the death of her husband Jocelyn must face her estranged mother, while trying to put her and her daughter s life back together If that wasn t hard enough a skull is uncovered on the estate s lake, stirring up memories of Jo s beloved Nanny who disappeared without a word one night This is a slow burn type mystery where bits are revealed little by little The aristocratic characters were quite scandalous and I found the memories of their past deeds entertaining and often times abhorrent which I rather enjoy The Holt family has quite the saga going on in this story and Nanny Hannah well, let s just say she was the opposite of Mary Poppins This novel was full of regrets, misdeeds, secrets, misplaced trust, manipulation and unhealthy relationships I enjoyed this mystery but I did have it figured out fairly early on and it felt a bit too long Had it been just a bit faster, it would have been all thegripping 3.5 rounded up Thank you to Gilly Macmillan, Harper Collins, William Morrow and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review an arc of this book.

    The nanny in this novel is not quite the Mary Poppins figure that usually springs to mind when nannies are mentioned, but adevious, scheming person looking out for number one In 1987, Hannah Burgess worked as a nanny for Lord and Lady Holt, looking after their 7 year old Jocelyn until one morning Jocelyn wakes up to find Hannah gone with no explanation Now 30 years later, Jocelyn or Jo as she now calls herself and her young daughter are forced back to live with her estranged and bitter The nanny in this novel is not quite the Mary Poppins figure that usually springs to mind when nannies are mentioned, but adevious, scheming person looking out for number one In 1987, Hannah Burgess worked as a nanny for Lord and Lady Holt, looking after their 7 year old Jocelyn until one morning Jocelyn wakes up to find Hannah gone with no explanation Now 30 years later, Jocelyn or Jo as she now calls herself and her young daughter are forced back to live with her estranged and bitter widowed mother on the family estate after Jo s husband dies suddenly leaving her in a dire financial position Jocelyn begins to question what happened to her nanny and what role her parents may have played in her disappearance This psychological thriller is a little slow to wind up, but it does eventually lay out a web of lies and deceptions meant to beguile Jo into trusting the nanny and suspecting her mother s motives Neither Lady Holt nor the nanny are very likeable characters, although Jo does seem just a tad too naive and gullible to always side with the nanny, especially when her own daughter s safety is at risk 3.5 With thanks to Netgalley and Random House for a digital ARC to read

    I have never rated a Gilly Macmillan book under 4 stars, and this one is no exception When her beloved nanny Hannah, left without a trace in 1988, seven year old, Jocelyn was devastated.Haunted by loss, she grew up bitter and distant only returning to her family home in desperation after the unexpected death of her husband.She has been estranged from her Mother for thirty years, but she must put her own daughter, Ruby, first, so with nowhere else to go, the pair leave California, for the very I have never rated a Gilly Macmillan book under 4 stars, and this one is no exception When her beloved nanny Hannah, left without a trace in 1988, seven year old, Jocelyn was devastated.Haunted by loss, she grew up bitter and distant only returning to her family home in desperation after the unexpected death of her husband.She has been estranged from her Mother for thirty years, but she must put her own daughter, Ruby, first, so with nowhere else to go, the pair leave California, for the very atmospheric Lake Hall, in England.Jocelyn who now goes by Jo sees a different side of her MOTHER, when Lady Holt Victoria is around her granddaughter, but she is not here to repair that relationship, and cannot quite believe that her MOTHER may have changed.I loved seeing Victoria through both her daughter and granddaughter s eyes And, then a SKULL is discovered in the lake Could it be Hannah s SECRETS long buried, are about to be exposed Of course, it turns out that what you thought you knew, may not be what it seemed.The alternating perspectives moved things along quickly for me, and I felt an ever growing DARK SENSE OF FOREBODING, as I continued on, growingandNERVOUS with each chapter Though not a mystery of shocking twists, this story reveals itself a bit at a time, allowing you to connect the dots and see if you are right..I loved this as much as her first book, so if you are a fan of her work, I think you will too Available September 10, 2019 Thank You to Edelweiss William Morrow, and the author for the digital ARC I received in exchange for a candid review

    Sometimes the truth hurts so much, you d rather hear the lie.Gilly MacMillan has crafted a haunting and atmospheric story An eerie tale threaded with Mystery with a strong Gothic feel This was not a fast paced edge of your seat thriller full of twists and turns This was a slow burn that completely transported me into the lives of these characters I could feel the chill in the air and the goosebumps on my skin, I was right there in this big creepy house with Virginia, Jo, Hannah, and Ruby Th Sometimes the truth hurts so much, you d rather hear the lie Gilly MacMillan has crafted a haunting and atmospheric story An eerie tale threaded with Mystery with a strong Gothic feel This was not a fast paced edge of your seat thriller full of twists and turns This was a slow burn that completely transported me into the lives of these characters I could feel the chill in the air and the goosebumps on my skin, I was right there in this big creepy house with Virginia, Jo, Hannah, and Ruby The strength of this Book was in the storytelling, I was captivated from first word to last Jocelyn has not been home for years But after the death of her husband she has to pack her and her daughter up leave California and head home to the UK Jo s return home forces her to face both her estranged mother and the abandonment of her nanny over 30 years ago After the remains of a body are found in the lake on the family property and the missing nanny returns to town things start to both piece together and fall apart The story is told from multiple perspectives and bounces between past and present Neither Virginia or Hannah were tremendously likable, but as things were revealed I definitely saw the good in one of themthan the other Jo was likable, but she was also very frustrating with how gullible she was Ruby really was my favorite character in this book a flash of color in the midst of all the gloom A beautifully told Gothic family Drama sprinkled with Mystery and a touch of thriller This book in three emojis Clare Corbett, Patience Tomlinson, and Ben Eliot narrate this audiobook All three of them did a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life giving them each a unique voice My only tiny complaint is that occasionally I got a little confused because they both did Virginia s voice so differently I can understand why this would be they probably did not record together, but sometimes I had to think twice and think oh this is the other narrator doing her voice because there was dialogue in both sections I m sure this is often the case, I just noticed itin this book than I usually do Big thanks to William Morrow and Harper Audio for my copy of the book
