The Nanny by Gilly Macmillan Review

The Nanny was one of my most anticipated books this year and it was just as excellent as I thought it would be! Wow! What in incredibly wild roller-coaster ride!

I loved the alternating POVs because I felt it moved the story along nicely, but I especially liked seeing Victoria through both her daughter and granddaughter's eyes. 

With each chapter, I grew more nervous about what was coming. There were so many shocking twists and turns while the story gives you little pieces at a time so you can slowly connect the dots, until you get the full puzzle in front of you and you are left with a jaw dropping ending. 

It was such a good book! Easily made it on the top of my list of favorites for this year! I highly recommend it!

Thank you to Harper Collins Canada for my gifted copy.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
When her beloved nanny, Hannah, left without a trace in the summer of 1988, seven-year-old Jocelyn Holt was devastated. Haunted by the loss, Jo grew up bitter and distant, and eventually left her parents and Lake Hall, their faded aristocratic home, behind.

Thirty years later, Jo returns to the house and is forced to confront her troubled relationship with her mother. But when human remains are accidentally uncovered in a lake on the estate, Jo begins to question everything she thought she knew.

Then an unexpected visitor knocks on the door and Jo’s world is destroyed again. Desperate to piece together the gaping holes in her memory, Jo must uncover who her nanny really was, why she left, and if she can trust her own mother… (Reference : Goodreads)

Happy reading,
