A high-stress family looks for an English nanny to provide some stability. I was not very taken with this book. The characters were not particularly well developed and it was hard to become emotionally connected to them or their story. ( )

Hope Collins-Calder has a stressful job as a realtor in the Hamptons, an ex she can't shake, a husband she's regretting having married and a serious child-care crisis. To solve her child care problem, she hires a British nanny. What she gets is Annabel Quick - elegant, sheltered, unmarried and sad. Annabel is no Mary Poppins, but as she sets Hope's house to rights she finds that her heart mends and she finds romance and a family she never would have believed possible. I thought this book was quick and easy reading and enjoyed it very much. I give this book a B+! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061031526, Mass Market Paperback)

Hope Collins-Calder has a stressful job as a realtor in the Hamptons, an ex she can't shake, a current husband she's beginning to regret, and a serious child -care crisis. What she needs is a good, traditional British nanny. What she gets is Annabel Quick. Elegant, sheltered, unmarried, and sad, Annabel is no Mary Poppins. But as she sets about getting Hope's chaotic house in order, she begins to notice her own heart miraculously mending as well, thanks in large part to Sheldon, a gentle handsome local carpenter who is stirring up emotions Annabel was certain she'd buried long ago. And over the course of one remarkable summer by the shore -- when marriages are tested, secrets revealed, and lives renewed --Annabel will find herself becoming more part of the Collins-Calder family than she, or Hope, ever bargained for.
