Publisher's Summary

A young woman takes a job as a nanny for an impossibly wealthy family, thinking she’s found her entrée into a better life - only to discover instead she’s walked into a world of deception and dark secrets.

“Wild, unpredictable, and utterly absorbing, Nanny Needed is a gasp-out-loud thriller that will make your head spin.” (Samantha M. Bailey, number one best-selling author of Woman on the Edge)

Nanny needed. Discretion is of the utmost importance. Special conditions apply.

When Sarah Larsen finds the notice, posted on creamy card stock in her building’s lobby, one glance at the exclusive address tells her she’s found her ticket out of a dead-end job - and life.

At the interview, the job seems like a dream come true: a glamorous penthouse apartment on the Upper West Side of NYC; a salary that adds several zeroes to her current income; the beautiful, worldly mother of her charge, who feels more like a friend than a potential boss. She’s overjoyed when she's offered the position and signs the NDA without a second thought.

But in retrospect, the notice in her lobby was less an engraved invitation than a waving red flag. For there is something very strange about the Bird family. Why does the beautiful Mrs. Bird never leave the apartment alone? And what happened to the nanny before Sarah? It soon becomes clear that the Birds’ odd behaviors are more than the eccentricities of the wealthy.

But by then it’s too late for Sarah to seek help. After all, discretion is of the utmost importance.

Critic Reviews

“This creepy and suspenseful tale takes hold of you from the first page and doesn’t let go. When innocent Sarah is hired by the wealthy Bird family, she imagines the nanny position will be a piece of cake, a pastel pink one at that. The reality of the job is much more sinister. I loved every twisty, haunting moment. This is a fast, fun read.” (Kaira Rouda, USA Today best-selling author of The Next Wife)

Nanny Needed has everything I look for in psychological suspense: unforgettable characters, palpable tension, and pages filled with mind-bending secrets. Clever and cunning, Georgina Cross has created a dark, twisty world that I stepped from shaken and out of breath. It grabbed me by the throat and still hasn’t let go.” (Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times best-selling author of This Is How I Lied)  

“Deliciously creepy and absolutely riveting, Nanny Needed is a gripping thriller about what happens when one woman’s dream job turns into her waking nightmare. Full of dark secrets and surprising twists, nothing is as it seems amid these pages. Watch out.... This one will take you for a massively entertaining ride!” (Christina McDonald, USA Today best-selling author of The Night Olivia Fell

Spellbinding story that is very well written

Like her other books, this is an intricate story that is very well written!! I listened to it in one day.

The narrator was very good and I could listen in 2x speed.

A Meh From Me

I have no qualms with the narrator performance. I feel the story was meh. I rarely guess endings to thrillers, and I pretty much guessed this one. There were also quite a few details (important details that the story hinged on) that I thought were a stretch to believe.

So far fetched

It was almost a good story. It became repetitive and more unbelievable with each chapter. The narrator had a tendency to speak in bursts of 4 to 5 words which was kind of strange. There was also no real end to the story.

Great Book

this book is really great because it has many twists and turns, however, the ending leaves you wanting! I thought there would be more.

Do not waste your time

In my opinion one of the worst books i have ever read. Plot and ending so lame. I gave it one star because there are no zero star choices

Well then…

Quite a story. Would have preferred more “thrills and suspense” but story was still good. Did not see that ending coming… I don’t think many will. Some might. Narration makes this book!

Dark and Twisted

This is one of those books that stays with you forever. From the beginning, it had me captivated and all the way through it delivered twist after unbelievable twist.

The writing was exceptionally crafted in a way making you feel that you knew what twists were going to happen, but nah the very ending…utter jaw dropping!

Reminded me of Behind Her Eyes and the narrator fulfilled all the creepy vibes needed.

I only finished it because I used a credit. I literally kept hoping for it to get better... It did not.
