Mallory is a fighter, from her rough past to being thrown into a new job as a nanny, she gets through it. This story is centered around Mallory’s love, struggle, and the mystery hiding just under the surface of the widower Brendan Colt and his children. There is a love story-line in here as well, but it seems to take the passenger seat as Mallory and Brendan navigate their very different lives. The twists alone make this story exciting and worth the read. Misty Mount does a great job of showing a realistic dynamic between two people entering each other’s lives. This story, about overcoming struggle to find yourself, shows us something that feels and seems real. The only thing that really detracted me from the story was how much the characters had to go through. It was difficult to connect with them. The characters, though seemingly real, felt out of reach. The writing was good, and the plot better. This was an adventure worth my time, and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good, dramatic tale.

I love it when an author gets straight into the story with no preamble, which is exactly what Misty Mount does in The Nanny Song. A single dad is struggling when his daughter has a tantrum while shopping, and decides to hire a nanny. The story continues from there. I thought this was going to be a romance novel but later it showed signs of becoming a supernatural horror. It’s the story of a family and their new nanny, told from from the nanny’s point of view. It’s unassuming with a twist of mystery that sneaks up on the reader. The author uses plenty of detail, making it easy for the reader to envisage each scene. She uses naturalistic language for her characters and playful, entertaining descriptions. I found it a very good read and think it’s pretty accessible for a wide range of readers.

The Nanny Song is full of beauty and emotion. It's Nanny McPhee meets Hallmark. Anyone who loves a well developed, feel good story, will not be able to put this one down! Oh my stars, I loved this book! The Nanny Song was everything I hoped it would be, and then some! It was captivating and emotional and felt like the perfect Hallmark movie! Misty performed magic with this one. Not only was the story moving and very well written, but the characters were gripping and so realistic! She must have done an insane amount of research to show and connect the mis-behaviors of Meela and Kason to their emotional life experiences in losing their mother and living with a workaholic father. I became so attached to these two beautiful children, and I have never been a "kid person." My heart broke for them and I wanted for things to be happy for them again. I loved Meela and her spunkiness, and I loved Kason and his protectiveness of his sister, and his sensitivity. But, it wasn't just the children I became attached to. I absolutely adored Mallory and her big heart! I loved how she touched the lives of the kids, and Brendan. And, I loved how realistic Brendan felt in wanting to work to provide for his family, but also having that deep emotional side that he was almost too afraid to show anyone. The Nanny Song touched on issues of loss, fear, bullying, and finding love again. It was incredibly powerful and gave me all the feels. It was absolutely breathtaking and I wish this had been picked up for a Hallmark movie, because it really came to life for me as I read it! It was one of my top reads for the year and gets all the stars (or mermaids) from me! Thank you to the Reads & Reels and the author for providing me with this free e-copy in exchange for my honest review, and as part of the blog tour.

'The Nanny Song' by Misty Mount is one of those great novels that blends a number of different genres to create something completely unique. With elements of thriller, drama, romance, and the supernatural, this novel has plenty of mystery, tension, and a sense of uneasiness that builds and builds as the plot goes on. It is well written and features a compelling an empathetic protagonist in Mallory, who becomes the nanny to the bereaved Colt family after being unfairly fired from her previous job. She bonds quickly with the children, but there is something not quite right in the Colt household, but Mallory could not have imagined the hidden secret and the danger it puts her in. Can Mallory help the Colt family to heal, or is there so much more pain to come for all of them?
