What the Nanny Saw by Fiona Neill....Review & Give Away!

I just finished up a great read....What the Nanny Saw by Fiona Neill.  It had me flipping pages when  I should have been prepping for my move (but that is another story!).  This was a can't put down read!  Here is the scoop...

It’s the summer of 2008. For the past decade Nick and Bryony Skinner and their four children have ridden high on the economic boom, but their luck is about to run out. Suddenly, the privileged family finds itself at the center of a financial scandal:
their Central London house is besieged by the press, Nick disappears, and Bryony and the children become virtual prisoners in their own home. And Ali, their trusted nanny, watches it all. As the babysitter, she brings a unique insider-outsider perspective to the family, seeing far more than even the family itself is capable of. But when a reporter with a personal connection to the story comes asking her for the inside scoop, will Ali remain loyal to the family who never saw her as anything other than the help? Or will she tell her side?
Written with Fiona Neill’s delicious humor and addictive style, What the Nanny Saw is a keenly observed, often comical chronicle of the urban wealthy elite, of parents who are often too busy to notice what is going on under their own noses, of children left to their own devices, and of a young nanny thrown into a role she doesn’t know how to play. It is a morality tale of our time, a tale of betrayal, the corrosive influence of too much money, and why good people sometimes do bad things.

This was my first time reading Fiona Neill and I can easily add her to my favorite author list.  In What the Nanny Saw, she has created a riveting tale with well developed characters.  From the first page, I was invested in Ali and I had to know how the big scandal played out.  The Skinner family is the ultimate in high society dysfunction and the intrigue about their scandals, affairs and lies kept me reading.  Ali is an integral part of their family yet not really family and she is deeply enmeshed in their lives....but does she know what really happened??  Trust me....you want to know more! This book is the perfect way to cap off your summer reading list.  Pick up your copy today....
