Far from the best
Although not a bad book, the ending left me searching for more. The main character, Mirella is very puzzling. All throughout the book I kept thinking, 'what a lousy mom!' I was waiting for the nanny, Randy, to do something completely crazy since there is such a build up. What happens is barely shocking. I was left really disliking Mirella. The message I got from this book was, 'just because you are a professional and 40somehting with a beautiful house and a husband, does not automatically qualify you to be a good parent.'Was this review helpful?

Hoped for Better
While not a bad read, A Perfect Arrangement is not particularly engaging either. The couple in question are not easy to identify with and the issues raised by the book are of limited interest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A great summer read that is light but well-written and suspenseful.
I truly enjoyed this book. It was a fast, easy read but had substance and detail. I found myself eagerly awaiting the next chapter. When I read the review, it sounded a bit trite and very 2001. Two working parents, living in the suburbs, stressed out, in search of the perfect nanny. The book, however, was much more than that and went into these issues in depth. It was also nice to read about parents in their 40's (instead of their 30's) with young children, contemplating another child...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
