    When Last we left Nan had been fired and decided to join up with

    When Last we left Nan had been fired and decided to join up with Ryan in his travels. Now it is eight years later. Nan and Ryan are now married and have moved back to New York to put down roots. She thought she had left the past behind but all of the sudden.
    Here is Greyer and he is back. He seeks answers to why Nan left him when she did. Nan feels guilty for how things ended and seeks closure, but is she really seeking that? Life goes as she starts a business and is developing a client list. Then there are also the renovations to their lovely new home. When Ryan leaves for a month will she be able to hold it together?
    My Thoughts:
    I really enjoyed The Nanny Returns. I enjoyed the narration of the audiobook. The humor in Ms. McLaughlin and Ms. Kraus’s writings is greatly appreciated. I enjoyed the hearing more about what Nan had been up to since we last met her. I would absolutely die to have a husband like Ryan. He isn’t perfect but you could see how much he loves Nan.
    Once again we enter the world of the power and privilege with the upper crust of New York. The question I had throughout the novel is how would Nan handle it? Would she cower in the corner or thumb her nose at the upper crust. I thought the relationship she has with Citrine was interesting. A friendship of opposites one of wealth and one of the average.
    I feel the authors left this book off on the right note. I can’t help wondering if we might see more from Nan in the future?

    A Fair Sequal - not as fun as the first

    As many readers would agree, the Nanny Diaries was outlandish fun, however, Nanny Returns doesn't quite impress the way the other did. When I first saw that there was a sequal I got really excited especially to see the "return of the X'es"- but there were many other things going on at the same time, most of which were a bit "fantasy like." I do believe some of the situations are plausible, I wish it centered more on Nan and the X's and it didn't. Not bad for a sequal, we all know the sequals rarely live up to the first book!

    She's back....

    The years have passed and Nan Hutchinson, aka the nanny of The Nanny Diaries has married and moved around the world with her husband Ryan due to his job with the United Nations. She has gone back to school and finished her Masters degree and is now back home in New York trying to get her own human resources consulting business off the ground, while in the process of gutting and rehabbing a home in East Harlem. An encounter with a now teenaged Grayer, the child she was traumatically fired from watching when he became too attached to her, adds further complications to her life and brings her back into the orbit of is parents, the toxic Mr. and Mrs. X. Add an unplanned reunion with her own schoolgirl "friends" who have turned into clones of the obnoxious parents she dealt with during her career as a nanny, an elite prep school that offers her a consulting job and her husband pressing her start a family of their own and Nan's life is suddenly full of complications.

    I think that Ms. McLaughlin and Ms. Kraus have a knack for writing interesting characters, including background characters. Nan is likable and it is easy to get caught up in her world, although, personally, I wonder why anyone would want to live there."

    Confusing, but good

    I forgot how confusing the authors style is. I found myself going, "wait what just happened?" I did get used to the writing style and settled in and really enjoyed this story. Nan and the X family are just as addicting as they were in the Nanny Dairies. I really enjoyed this book...a little different than a lot of the other books out there!

    Nanny still kicks butt!!

    Nanny Returns was an excellent follow up. It shows that bond you have with someone really never goes away. Helping Grover overcome his awful parents the X's. The story was told with great heart, the characters were full of life and passion. I read this book in a day. I loved it and will reread it again I am sure.

    Nanny... Times Two

    The book itself is very good. At parts it doesn't really follow the first but is very interesting to read. The story and ending was very surprising to me and was not what I expected. But Nicola and Emma still keep the funniness in the story, sure to make you smile..

    Not what I expected

    ...but it's definitely worth reading. I read "Nanny Diaries" about 100 and it is one of my favorite books, so I was super excited for this sequel. I have to admit, I had a hard time getting into the story at first. However, as it progressed it wound up being a very compelling read. Despite being well written, I wish the authors would have taken a little more time to develop the story a little bit more. I feel that things came to a "close" a little prematurely. Despite all that, the book is worth reading and serves as a cautionary tale to those who take their parenting responsibility too lightly.
