Description

The New York Times best-selling author of What She Knew conjures a dark and unpredictable tale of family secrets that explores the lengths people will go to hurt one another.

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… 

In this compulsively listenable tale of secrets, lies, and deception, Gilly Macmillan explores the darkest impulses and desires of the human heart. Diabolically clever, The Nanny reminds us that sometimes the truth hurts so much you’d rather hear the lie.

Non-compelling characters and abrupt ending

I had trouble getting into this story, and not one character was compelling. The story eventually became interesting, but it ended so abruptly and with so many unanswered questions. I don't believe there is a sequel, but if there is, I doubt I would read it.

excellent narration, okay story

This novel had a great premise and I was excited to see how it'd develop. I love the dynamics of nannys and spooky estate homes. This novel had both. The narrators were great with their portrayals of the different characters. However, I didn't find the mystery story line to be that mysterious, nor did I find the detective chapters to be very valuable. Still an enjoyable read - just not as stimulating as it could have been.

Great gripping story!

Great story, it had me fully enthralled which is a lot for me to say considering I go through at least 4 Psychological thrillers a week on audible! I don’t leave reviews often, but I loved this one! Ending was a tad abrupt, but GREAT book.

another great one from G.M.

Great plot :) Clare Corbett still can't do American accents but makes up for it with the other characters.

I couldn't finish it

I don't know if it was the story, or the narration, or both, but I couldn't get into this book and just could not finish it. I definitely do not recommend

Loved!

Excellent story, exceptional narration, and interesting characters even though slightly perplexed (and annoyed) by their behavior at times. Agree with another reviewer that ending is slightly abrupt. Would have been nice to feel more extended closure after investing so much emotion listening to book past 24 hours. However, most highly recommend!

Fun story

This was a fun book listen too. The narrators were excellent! The voices were perfect for all characters. Sometimes multi narrator projects don’t work so well but this was good. I started this book a few times but I do that with quite a few books. Sometimes it’s just not the right time to read particular genres for one reason or another. But when it clicked it was easy to get into and know the players. A few red herrings in the story I caught which were good. Everything wasn’t totally worked out all the main things were and I wasn’t left hanging which was great. Will
look for more works by this author.

Great Story But Hated The Daughter

I loved the book once I got into it but I have to say that Jo is so unlikable I could not have any sympathy for her at all and kind of wanted the nanny to kill her off so Ruby could be happy with her Grandmother
