Overview

What the Nanny Saw by Fiona Neill

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 book seemed as though it was written by a teenager with a thesaurus. The writing style was quite juvenile with the occasional large word or reference to British literature thrown in for good measure. The juvenile writing did not mesh with the complicated subject matter of investment banking/insider trading. The plot was interesting at first, but spiraled into teenage smut. I would maybe recommend this book to teens, but not adults.

The author developed the characters well, and I found myself pulling for all of them in the end. The first half of the book was a tad (just a tad) slow., but picked up. I would have luked to have seen a different ending, it seemed to leave loose ends.
