Jamie and husband maybe rich but, unlike the other wives, she is a working mum and as such struggles to fit in with the lifestyle of the neighbours and this worries her rather neurotic husband.

Synopsis

The Manny by Holly Peterson

Jamie Whitfield is a rarity among the sleek and chic of 'The Grid' – the exclusive blocks of the Upper East Side where it's all about keeping up with the Vanderbilts. She's a working mother, from the wrong side of the tracks and is never quite going to fit in, much to the dismay of her neurotic husband Jeffrey. But while he's worrying that they're the poor white trash of The Grid, struggling along on a mere two mill a year, Jamie is more concerned about juggling the demands of her job with the needs of her children.

On the verge of breaking the story that could make her reporting career, and facing mutiny from her son, she hires a Manny – a male nanny and the new 'must-have' accessory on The Grid. And Jason proves to be a life-saver in more ways than she could ever have imagined…
