Overview

Set against the beautiful backdrop of coastal Maine, bestselling author Holly Chamberlin’s heartwarming novel tells of friendship, family, lessons learned, and newfound love—all under a summer sky . . .
 
Every June, the quiet beach town of Ogunquit is overtaken by wealthy families who hire local young women like Amy Latimer and Hayley Franklin to care for their children. Best friends since childhood, Amy and Hayley are eager to secure lucrative summer jobs. Amy wants to finance her upcoming move to Boston. Hayley hopes to squirrel away enough money so that her mom can finally leave her abusive husband.
 
Amy is immediately in thrall to her dynamic boss, Cressida Prior, so different from Amy’s mother, Leda. Though skilled at creating tapestries and rugs, Leda lacks confidence. But one thing she does know, after a painful summer long ago as a nanny herself, is how damaging a manipulative boss can be.
 
Hayley’s employers, Jon and Marisa Whitby, are loving parents to their two-year-old twins. Jon also has a grown son by a previous marriage. Ethan is kind, handsome, and not least, wealthy. For the first time, Hayley, usually so selfless, can’t help seeing him as an opportunity.
 
But the passing weeks bring complications and revelations, altering friendships, testing the bond between mothers and daughters, and proving that the ripples from a single season can last forever . . .
 
Praise for the novels of Holly Chamberlin
 
“There is sure to be much clamor for this latest beach read.  Recommend it to fans of Claire Cook and Elin Hilderbrand.” --Booklist on Home for the Summer
 
“Chamberlin’s latest is a great summer read but with substance. It will find a wide audience in its exploration of sisterhood, family, and loss.”
Library Journal on Summer with My Sisters

The Summer Nanny by Holly Chamberlin. Not what I expected but still a good book but it dragged a little at times. Likable characters and good storyline. I look forward to checking out more by this author in the future.

The Summer Nanny is the perfect beach read. The story takes place on the coast of Maine, following two young girls that are summer nannies. They are both very different girls with very different families that they work for. The story is well written and descriptive that you could close your eyes and see everything vividly. It's a story of mothers and daughters and many family dynamics. My favorite character was, Hayley. So down to earth and just wants things better for her and her mom. I so disliked Cressida, Amy's boss. So in to her self and tries to push them on to Amy. I highly recommend this fast paced story for your perfect beach read this summer.

The Summer Nanny is a wonderfully crafted story that follows two young women as they work as nannies over a summer. They each have very different experiences but both gain maturity and growth they never expected. The writing is very descriptive making it easy to imagine the sand between your toes. The characters while at times annoying are memorable and well developed. Family dynamics are examined as is what truly makes a family. The story if full of emotion and will definitely have you thinking. This is a great read and one I highly recommend.
