Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A great insight into New York’s super-rich, superficial and supercharged people with more money than sense. Their antics are shown to us through the eyes of a harassed, endearing mum who hires a saviour … a male nanny. Sharp, fast and fun, this is a Desperate Housewives, Sex in the City mix.

Comparison: Plum Sykes, Lauren Weisberger, Polly Williams.

If you like Holly Peterson you might also like to read books by Jill Kargman, Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes.

Synopsis

The Manny by Holly Peterson

Welcome to the Grid, home to New York’s uber rich, where a manny – a male nanny – is the hottest new hire in town.

And Peter Bailey is young, fun and drop-dead gorgeous. He could be the answer to Jamie Whitfield’s prayers, even if her husband disagrees.

Peter comes from a very different world to Jamie’s. He’s cool, calm and he sees right through her attempts to fit in with her chic and sleek neighbours.

Ditching high society dinners for dancing in Brooklyn, Jamie begins to wonder if a married uptown girl can fall for a downtown guy. He’s good for her children. Could the manny be good for her too…?

Reviews

‘The Manny is a sharp and hugely enjoyable read. Fans of New Yorker must-buys The Devil Wears Prada and The Nanny Diaries should be rushing this one to the tills faster than SJP at a Manolo sample sale. ***** Heat

'A lively debut' Tatler

'A cleverly sub-plotted metropolitan fairy tale' Good Housekeeping

'Move over yummy mummies. The yummy manny is in town.' Spectator
