9780007233038: The Manny

Sex and the City with a baby: the hot new Manhattan novel is a brilliantly entertaining romantic comedy about a harassed working mum who hires a male nanny.

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…?

Review:

‘The Manny is a sharp and hugely enjoyable read. Fans of New Yorker must-bys 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

‘Money, Manners, Mannys: Holly Peterson's debut is a fabulously sharp skewering of the silly-rich in New York. I couldn't put it down. We should ALL get a Manny.’ Plum Sykes, author of Bergdorf Blondes

From the Back Cover:

Like Jamie, Peter comes from a very different world to the Grid. 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 ...?
