The Agency by Monica McGurk
The Agency by Monica McGurk When American orphan, Bree, arrives at Norwood College—the elite English training ground of nannies to the world’s rich and powerful—she knows that making it through the first year to land a spot in the coveted certificate program is the key to her future. She also knows she can’t go it alone, bonding quickly with her groupmates: an errant (and broke) nobleman, son of one of England’s oldest families; the ambitious and whip-smart daughter of a self-made immigrant; and the ditzy, husband-hunting daughter of a disgraced playboy aristocrat. What none of them realize is that there is more to Norwood than meets the eye: the school itself may unlock the secrets of Bree’s own shadowy past, and the classmates’ very lives will depend on their ability to work together to meet the dangers ahead. My Take: Even though this book is slow paced and alittle bit unorthodox, I found that the twists aand turns more than made up for that and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I would give this book four stars and I anxiously wait for the next installment. Don't let the fact that this is a book about nannies fool you there is plenty of action packed thrill rides in this book. I never knew that being a nany could be so exciting. I recieved a review copy from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
