    1. In recent months, I have waded through some fairly mediocre chick lit I have left books halfway, groaned at the plot predictability and mentally castigated the dull as ditchwater heroines and their pompous heroes.So now when I come across an author who took a much mauled genre and perfectly bound all the essential elements together I want to genuflect before the Lord and send up a fervent Thank You The Nanny is another brilliant offering by the late Melissa Nathan It s a tale of 23 year old Jo G [...]


    2. I absolutely loved this book.Asd insane as it sounds, I think this was mainly 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 children brilliantly.The 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 [...]


    3. 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 job as a nanny in London, she jumps at the chance Of course, this means leaving her long time boyfriend at home But the prospect of a new setting and a job 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 [...]


    4. I recently dsicovered Melissa Nathan.The 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 jk and I instantly fell in love with her humor, her wit and her swoooooooony scenes.And then, I grabbed the nanny.Here is the synopsis Twenty three year old Jo Green knows that if she has to spend one night in ultra provincial Niblet Upon Avon she ll go completely bonkers [...]


    5. Muy divertido Ideal para una tarde Me re mucho con los ni os y me encant como la autora, fue capaz de enganchar todas las historias en 3ra persona sin necesidad de cortar la escena anterior Se enganchaban en un s lo p rrafo, por lo cu l, no hab a un parate para una y otra Al principio me descoloc , pero a medida que le a le fui tomando la mano.Muestra la relaci n de una familia donde los dos padres trabajan y dejan a ni os chiquitos al cuidado de una ni era Tambi n muestran el amor paternal de l [...]


    6. I have loved this book from the first time I read it Thanks to my best friend who introduced me to the great Melissa Nathan This book makes me laugh out loud Nathan perfectly describes voices of little kids Talulah especially She is adorable And I can just imagine a little kid acting exactly like her It really brings something to the book Otherwise this is just like most chick lit novels Girl has a problem Girl hates boy Boy and girl start getting along There is a huge fallout They both realize [...]


    7. I loved this book The quiet, quirky, lovable main character and her family seemed very alive to me Her little wards were funny and realistic, the supporting characters interesting and dynamic And I really felt the love story between vrizzion in a soft way that made me smile Chemistry is not easy to capture in this way The sadness I felt when I read about this author s untimely death stayed with me for awhile I liked her very much and wish there were many of her works to read I reread this book [...]


    8. When my husband and I lived overseas, many years ago, I went through a period where all I wanted to read was Chick Lit Specifically, Chick Lit set in London My favorite author became Melissa Nathan, who I discovered when trying to find some Pride and Prejudice retellings I read Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field, and was hooked A few years later, I searched to see the title of her latest book and was shocked and saddened to learn that she had passed away from cancer, leaving a young family So, mu [...]


    9. I liked The story line, the multi character point of view, the dissection of complex relationships, the humorI disliked The tendency to tell instead of show in the writing style, the unrealistic reactions of characters at certain points in the bookOverall, I enjoyed this book and kept reading because I wanted to see what happened next There are several different story lines and it s interesting to see how they intersect I wish she had written certain conversations and situations out instead of j [...]


    10. They say a change is as good as a rest Maybe that s why I picked this up it s at least 10 years since I read a book I would classify as chicklit Two chapters in I was being reminded why Then in the next chapter I had my first laugh out loud moment and I remembered why this genre is so popular The feel good plot and self effacing humour is just what was needed during a crazily busy holiday season And there were plenty of memories from my own days of juggling a career with kids and a nanny at home [...]


    11. I loved this book and i love Melissa Nathan s writing she is one of the best Authors i have ever read and i have now finished her collection and all of them were superb The Nanny is enriching and keeps you glued to the pages the whole way through, i haven t read such a captivating book in a long time thank you Melissa.


    12. Guilty pleasure read this in 2007 and after hearing Melissa Nathan lost her battle with cancer, have been re reading all of her books She was a great author with a skill in writing fun chick lit She will be missed.


    13. I m so sad that we lost such a wonderful author Melissa s books are just lovely the characters are so well written and the plots always hold my interest even over several rereads of the same book.


    14. This was a very fun, entertaining and easy read I really enjoyed it, it wasn t as predictable as I thought it would be I recommend to anyone who wants a nice fun, cosy, easy book to curls up to this is it


    15. It was a little difficult maybe the first 3 chapters to get use to having so many point of views But by the end it was very good I had to laugh a lot out loud at the kiddos.




    16. I first read this book about 8 years ago It got passed round my friends and is now very dogged eared Always a good one to turn to for a light read and a cheer up



    17. The story of Jo and her journey from country girl living at home to independent young woman living and earning her way in London should have been my type of chick lit.I liked Jo and I liked that Ms Nathan didn t make her a cliched chick lit heroine you know, boy breaks girls heart, girl moves to city to mend her broken heart, and then finds the true love of her life She is in a relationship but goes to London not due to a broken heart but to understand why she can t commit to her boyfriend Jo s [...]


    18. The second time around was just as good as the first I loved it Love all the questions brought up about the imbalance of male female roles and dynamics within the home Love the romantic stories Love the grown up children, haha I mis remembered a lot of details so it was nice to read again It felt like a rediscovery of the story.


    19. This book was sometimes 2 stars, sometimes 4 stars, it had moments of 5 stars got tedious, it got too predictable, it got to the point I was going to quitd then it got good It went off in dire tions I had never imaginedbut it worked I realize Brit chick lit isn t my favorite genre, in fact, I can only read it here and there But, I am glad I stuck with The Nanny.


    20. I really enjoyed this book The family she worked for was very interesting I found myself laughing at some of the comments they made to each other from the very beginning of the book I also found myself disliking her friend, Sheila Overall, it was a very good read and I will be on the lookout for by this author.


    21. Chick lit but The good Kind I really enjoyed this book, the characters grew on me quickly The only downside was that The Main Character Jo and her Love Interest take The whole damn book to get together and thats exactly The Moment The book Ends I would have liked To read about them being together.



    22. Me encant , porque manej diferentes historias, todas alrededor de la ni era desde los ni os, sus padres, los padres de ella y ni se diga, Josh.Todos con sus secretos o sus puntos de vista Realmente muy recomendable la lectura ligera Es una pena que la autora haya fallecido tan joven, pero al menos dej algo para que disfrut ramos.




    23. Fluffy, predictable and utterly hilarious I read this via audiobook, perfect narrator chosen Wished this was a series it was so good.


    24. Fun and witty will keep you entertainedLoved the book had me hooked from when Jo moved to London, fun to read a few good laughs along the way
