Broken, smashed, and stomped in the mud.

That's how Charlotte Bell's heart ended up the last time she let her emotions heat up on a nanny assignment. So taking a new position in frigid Iceland, working for Ambassador Edgar Rawlings, might be just what Charlotte needs in order to heal up and chill out. This time, she's determined to be intrepid and courageous. She's even read all 56 original Nancy Drew books in preparation. Unfortunately, she's neglected to find out anything about Iceland or to look into the background of her oddly compelling employer. When Charlotte stumbles onto the trail of a mystery that only she can solve, she'll need every shred of Nancy's wisdom to keep her life and her heart safe!

Listener Opinions

    " I enjoyed the story for the most part but it seemed to have a lot of holes in the story line. I did not get too much into the main character but this story's premise had promise. I would like to have seen it go more strongly into the espionage and to have developed the characters more thourally. "

    " a fabulous mash-up of Jane Eyre and Nancy Drew "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacy | 2/8/2014

    " This book really had nothing going for it. The main character was not lovable, deep or interesting. At 23 she develops this weird obsession with Nancy Drew (for no good reason) then goes to Iceland where it seems that all Icelanders carry a copy of some Nancy Drew book around with them--although it is never quite explained why this is the case as you read the book. I would also venture to guess that this little "tidbit" is totally untrue. The main character is naive and doesn't seem to get what love is. Her rocky relationship with her father and even worse relationship with her aunt seem to be merely hinted at, although they are the driving force of the main character's actions. The character she sits next to on the plane serves no purpose other than to be mostly rude, annoying and crazy. I don't like to not finish a book, so I did read the entire thing, but I didn't find myself enjoying it until the last two or three chapters...if that. This one is definitely a "don't bother." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 2/2/2014

    " I don't think I could really recommend this book to anyone. It was trying too hard to be funny, but it didn't really succeed. Also, I was annoyed by how many times the author used the word "intrepid!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/18/2014

    " I felt it didnt really have an ending, disappointed, good idea no direction "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ellisa Barr | 1/17/2014

    " I really hated this book. There was nothing good about it to recommend. I don't remember why I finished it. Maybe to see if it would get better. It didn't. This is about a foolish girl that takes a job far from home and does stupid things. Don't read this, even if you love Nancy Drew books (like I do). It won't help. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Molly | 1/2/2014

    " I was lured in by the title of this book. It was pretty bad! My book was missing about 30 pages from the middle of it, and I swear the book manufacturer did me a favor. Total crap! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/30/2013

    " A nanny on the rebound takes a job in Iceland for an American ambassador with secrets. A quick, fluffy read. Baratz-Logsted takes the cliches of the genre and applies them in a quirky and fun way. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Raina | 12/6/2013

    " I really just couldn't get into this no matter how hard I tried... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chanda | 11/23/2013

    " Time pass. I really don't like her style. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mhogan | 11/12/2013

    " The title should hav been a clue- one of the worst books I've ever read. Gives chick-lit a bad name. I'm embarassed I finished it. Do not waste your time on this one!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 11/5/2013

    " Quick read - cute and entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lily | 11/3/2013

    " When i saw this book on the shelf it seemed so intresting! WRONG! Soooooo boring and just awful! And the main character was a creep! Shes 23. Has a weird obcession with nancy drew. Goes to iceland to be a nanny. (wow shes got alot going fore her!) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheryl | 10/29/2013

    " This book was so horrible that my friends and I started a Terrible Book Club where we passed around a copy in which we wrote snarky comments in the margins. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terese | 10/8/2013

    " This was a quick, fun read. There was some telescoping that made many of the story parts predictable....but I liked the fact that the story took place in Iceland and I liked the parallel to the Nancy Drew stories. cute. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mindy | 8/17/2013

    " Just simply couldn't get into it. Thought I would like it given being a fan of Nancy Drew books growing up. Must be the writing style that didn't get me hooked. Didn't finish. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ktouton | 9/7/2012

    " This book started out pretty interesting. By the end it was extremely unbelievable. I would not recommend this book to anyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 7/18/2012

    " I love a grown woman who reads through every word of her Nancy Drew books in order to learn to solve a mystery! Oh, how I miss Nancy Drew! But, the mystery in this story wasn't quite as good as those that Nancy solved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 5/20/2012

    " Very good, cute funny chick lit. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Belinda | 2/12/2012

    " Despite having Nancy Drew in the title (which attracted me), it's basically a thinly veiled retelling of Jane Eyre that does not add anything interesting. You might as well just read Jane Eyre unless you don't have time then go for this pared down version instead with the pretty cover. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Book Him Danno | 12/7/2011

    " This book started out a five star and then fell flat, the end was awful. I really enjoyed the Icelandic aspect and the mystery and then.......down ....down.....down....too bad it was a great story too bad it couldn't finish as strong as it started. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Catherine | 8/10/2011

    " I honestly don't know why I keep reading books by this author. Oh, that's right, a title caught my interest, and I forgot my list when I went to the library. I just don't like any of her main characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaci | 5/28/2011

    " Bridget Jones meets Jane Eyre. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jory | 4/27/2011

    " Kind of a ripoff of Jane Eyre. Fantastical, but not necessarily fantastic. The writing style was pleasant but the dialogue was cheesy and the ending was unsatisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 4/21/2011

    " Reminded me very much of Julie and Julia. The ending was very anticlimactic, but it was a good mindless read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 4/15/2011

    " Good premise undone by the world's most annoying heroine. A pity. Chick lit authors: you actually have to make your main characters likeable. Put some effort into it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 11/26/2010

    " eehh, it was ok. There were some good spots. I found it to be very predicatable and the main character was frustrating. It had more potential than it lived up to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 2/27/2010

    " Complete and utter froth, with a few Jane Eyre references thrown. If you've read Jane Eyre you'll catch the references, and if you haven't it won't derail you. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 2/5/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 11/28/2009

    " I liked the premise of this book and the descriptions of Iceland, but the ending was unrealistic and ruined it for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 10/3/2009

    " This book was just not good...a lot of times, I found the story contradictory. I struggled to get thru this one. "
