Nanny Wanted is a gripping thriller from the bestselling author of Out of Her Depth, Lizzy Barber.
‘Nanny Wanted is the perfect gothic suspense novel, with complex characters and a creeping sense of dread that will have you turning the pages long after you need to sleep.’ – Clare Mackintosh, author of The Last Party
A remote Cornish mansion. The perfect couple. And the deadly secrets that bind them.
When Lily finally leaves her toxic relationship, a job as a nanny at Kewney Manor seems like the perfect solution. There, she can cut herself off from her old life, and never have to see him again.
The Rowes seem like a model family, and Lily falls instantly in love with her new home. But she can’t help feeling that something isn’t quite right. Why will nobody tell her about the nanny who came before her? Where does Laurie go at night? And what does Charles really want?
As Lily becomes increasingly entangled in the Rowes’s lives, she realizes that the perfect family may not be all that they seem. And as much as she fears the past she is running from, perhaps the present is where the real danger lies . . .
