The Perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani

The Perfect Nanny
by Leila Slimani

Myriam and Paul have discovered a’miracle’. “The Perfect Nanny” in their neighborhood. Nanny Louise quickly becomes an intregal part of the family. Myriam can return to work and Paul rises in the ranks at his own job. They even have time for one another again, and make sure Louise is almost always with them – even on family vacations.

All the other nannies at the park watch themselves carefully when Louise brings the children around….having heard the wonderous tales of Louise’s long hours, gourmet meals and strong yearning for perfection.

What will happen then when the youngest child, Adam, grows closer to the age of school enrollment? What will become of Louise and her new family?

A psychological thriller that keeps you guessing and racing through. This slim, 228 page turner is nearly impossible to put down.
