My Review

The story starts with what I felt like a warning for men that they should treat women in a better way than preying on them.

The story describes the relationship of Connor and Sharon. Sharon is married to a wealthy businessman Connor. They have a small daughter Cindy who needs a nanny as both the parents are busy in their lives because and need someone to take care of their daughter.

This is where the protagonist of the story Carol comes into existence and does a pretty good job as a nanny. Things turn around as she finds out that Sharon is cheating Connor and that eventually leads to divorce.

The only person who is really affected by all this mayhem is Cindy as she is too small to understand such complexities of life.

I had a lot of expectations of something would happen to the Connor and Connor is going to create some nuisance that he is going to be punished for, but nothing of that sort happened and that did let me down. Instead Sharon had a lot of issues and Cindy was mostly an invisible character in the story that the author brought into life whenever there was a need.

Nevertheless the story was one of its kinds and is aimed at the adults who are practically not sure about their marriage life and what issues should they focus on in their live apart from their jobs.

It was a good read but I still doubt the story plot and I wish there was more suspense to the story.
