Modern Jane Eyre, hot enough to burn the house down…

When I asked Practically Perfect Nannies for a client as far away from Brooklyn as possible, I was thinking Vermont, not Sweden. But the farther away from my family, the better.

With my first passport and an overstuffed suitcase in hand, I landed in Stockholm with my best, most trustworthy smile….until the taxi dropped me off at an estate in the middle of a forest, complete with the hot, brooding single dad.

Now, I’m stuck in an old manor house that reeks of old money and family secrets, trying to convince my very off-limits boss that he wants me here.

And he wants me.

The Overseas Nanny Mistake is a contemporary Gothic romance with hints of Jane Eyre and Rebecca, set in a mysterious house on the misty shores of the Baltic Sea.

My Review:

I haven’t read any of the other books in this series but it didn’t prove to be an issue. Each book features a new couple.

I do enjoy the nanny/boss trope and I did appreciate the nod to Jane Eyre and the Gothic Romance element. This book has serious potential and I did enjoy reading it. I mean, who can resist a broody handsome hero. Particularly a single father with issues. It’s a recipe for success.

I did feel at times Ava was naive and made some poor choices. This did annoy me a little which is reflected in my rating. It was an okay read that I do recommend even if it’s just to get a taste of Edward.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
