One of my goals this year was to read 20 books. I’m behind, so I’m trying to play catch up. This was a perfect book to slam out. A couple in France decide to get a nanny, but choose the wrong one. They are amazed with her organization and “Mary Poppins” ways with the children. But the nanny has mental issues and kills the two children. This is not a plot giveaway since the book tells you this in the first chapter and then works its way backwards. Even without plot twists or whodunnits, I was intrigued throughout. I definitely recommend this book.
Side note: This book is fiction, but there was a similar true story of a nanny in New York, 2012 who gruesomely killed two children as the mother and third child were swimming at a local pool a few blocks away.
