THE NANNY

Author(s): 
p>Jo Green takes a risk and leaves her small-town life for London and a job as nanny to Dick and Vanessa Fitzgerald's three children. There are some perks—a suite of rooms, a car, a cell phone, weekends off—but caring for this squabbling couple's children is exhausting!

Besides taking the kids to and from school, she has to deal with smart-alecky phone calls from Josh, Dick's 25-year-old son from a previous marriage. Sparks fly when Josh moves in, but Jo still has a devoted boyfriend at home.

Well-drawn characters, captivating subplots, yummy romantic tension and lots of surprises make this a fabulous read. (Oct., 352 pp., $13.95) S
