What's the worst thing that could happen to a blushing bride? To somebody warm, loving, and fun - like Zoe Moore? When she finds herself jilted at the altar by her fiance Jason, Zoe knows she doesn't deserve this heartache and humiliation. Unable to face the pitying faces of her friends and family, Zoe takes drastic action: she flees to America. Specifically, to Boston, where she takes up a post as nanny to five-year-old Ruby Miller and her little brother Samuel. Ruby and Samuel have lost their mother in an accident. They may as well have lost their father, too, for Ryan Miller is so wrapped-up in his grief that he barely notices his two attention-starved children. As Zoe sets about tidying up Ruby and Sam's home, and injecting some fun back into their lives, she finds herself gaining their trust and love. At the same time, Zoe grows more and more frustrated with Ryan's bullying behaviour, and his shameful neglect. Whatever happened to the loving man she keeps hearing about from his neighbours? Zoe can't find any sign of him. The only thing saving Zoe from despair is the small, close-knit group of British nannies who quickly befriend her.There's boisterous Trudie, man-mad but hiding a painful secret; Sloanie traveller Amber, who sports a Buddhist tattoo that, unbeknownst to her, reads 'Batteries Not Included'.And chilly, tight-lipped Felicity, whose cut-glass voice gives little away. But will these new friends be able to save Zoe, when she discovers that the past isn't all that easy to escape, no matter how far you go?

 Cracking Book

| | See all sammygirl6's reviews (1)

I only picked this book up as it was half price at the store and I needed something to read in the bath! What a delight this book turned out to be, it had me laughing to myself, feeling sorry for the main character and not wanting to stop reading it for a second! A must read for anyone who likes a good girly book. Feeling upset that I finished it so fast, I'm now lost!!

 Good quality chick-lit

I really loved this book and read it extremely quickly. I generally like most chick-lit but I don't often fall in love with that sort of book.
The story centres around Zoe and begins shortly after she has been left at the altar by her fiance, Jason. She decides to leave her job as a nursery nurse and become a nanny in America. She ends up working for a completely gorgeous single father (Ryan) with 2 children, who hasn't managed to keep hold of a nanny for longer than a couple of weeks in the past.
The books takes you through Zoe's attempts to tame the young children and crack through Ryan's tough and extremely grumpy exterior while she makes friends with the other British nannies in the area. As the story moves along, we find out more about what happened on Zoe's wedding day and her relationship with her fiance before that. It's often funny and very absorbing to read. I enjoyed the way that Zoe's feelings were so clear- still in love with Jason despite his betrayal but also trying to manage inappropriate lustful thoughts about Ryan. I also liked her personality as a character- very down-to-earth and although she had the same sort of insecurities that we all do, she was very strong-willed too. Ryan manages to be very appealing despite his gruff exterior, but then I am a bit of a sucker for "grumpy but gorgeous" men! The minor characters also had interesting storylines and were more than just extra bodies lurking around the plot. There's a certain amount of predictability to the conclusion of any of this sort of book but Jane Costello managed to inject surprises here and there throughout the plot.
I loved reading it and I would recommend it to anyone. I will definitely look out for more of Jane Costello's books.
