Nanny Needed by Georgina Cross – review.

Date of publication – 28 April.



Discretion is of the utmost importance.
Special conditions apply.

When Sarah Larsen answers the Bird family’s advertisement, her life changes overnight.

The job seems like a dream come true: nannying in a glamorous penthouse apartment with a salary that adds several zeroes to her current income.

Sarah signs the contract binding her to complete secrecy without a second thought. These are important people, after all – they can’t be too careful about who they let into their home.

All is well until events in Sarah’s life begin to take a sinister turn and the trail leads back to the Birds. She soon realises there’s something very strange about the family.

But by then, is it too late for her?

A completely gripping psychological thriller from the author of the number one bestseller The Stepdaughter. Perfect for fans of The Nanny, The Couple Next Door and The Family Upstairs.

My thoughts

This book was impossible to put down! What a triumph. I loved the set up – young woman in crippling debt, a job opportunity too good to be true. The whole Bird family set-up had my hairs on end and I couldn’t work out why during the introductions. The tone was well and truly set.

Sarah was an amazing character to follow, I genuinely liked her. I felt all her bumps in the road. Also, the writing was brilliant, clear and fast, just what you need in a thriller. This book is definitely a one or two sitting read. It was for me.

Another element of the book that entranced me was the New York setting. I enjoyed following Sarah’s day to day life through this fabulous city. Then there was the penthouse that was both creepily claustrophobic and, charming and entrancing.

‘Nanny Needed’ is a gripping psychological thriller which will literally have your jaw dropping as the revelations play out. Super read!

Thanks for reading!
