    " Author got better with this one. Second installment of the Zoe Hayes mysteries. The Nanny Murders was very good but this one was a bit better. Loved it "

    " I enjoyed this book more so than her first. Not the greatest mystery, but held my interest enough. The main character in this book surely needs to receive an award for the world's worst mother, something that distracted me from the plot more than a little. "
