Hope Collins-Calder has a stressful job as a realtor in the Hamptons, an ex she can't shake, a husband she's regretting having married and a serious child-care crisis. To solve her child care problem, she hires a British nanny. What she gets is Annabel Quick - elegant, sheltered, unmarried and sad. Annabel is no Mary Poppins, but as she sets Hope's house to rights she finds that her heart mends and she finds romance and a family she never would have believed possible. I thought this book was quick and easy reading and enjoyed it very much. I give this book a B+!
