Ten years after her original misadventures in babysitting, Nan returns to NYC in this saucy sequel to the phenomenal bestseller The Nanny Diaries. Now married and pondering motherhood herself, the recovering caregiver is about to get a whole new perspective on childrearing. Her trouble former charge bursts back into her life and her new consulting business introduces her to nannying’s sophisticated older sister: private school. With the same biting wit and tender heart that marked the original, this long-awaited follow-up skewers the elite culture of “outsourced parenting” on the razor-sharp tip of a 21st-century Mary Poppins umbrella. It’s as funny as it is affecting: call it chicklit with a conscience.
Nanny Returns was a great continuation of Nan and Grayer’s story! I loved hearing what the Xs were up to after all this time. Also hearing how Ryan (H.H.) and Nan fared was great – you knew they would probably end up together, but it was great to know for sure!
I love the characters Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus have once again enchanted readers with. You see the same characters and meet some new ones! Nan and Ryan are my 2 favorites. Stilton is a new character you meet that is heart warming and brings so much to the novel.
With the way Nanny Diaries finished up, I wasn’t 100% sure how catching the plot in Nanny Returns would be, but I wasn’t let down one bit! Once you get a few chapters in, it was hard to put it down!
I can’t wait for another great novel from this fabulous duo!
