The last story in the fun & flirty #LoveLondon series from exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore! The perfect novel for reading in the sunshine… and falling in love with London.
A summer to remember…or forget?
When Zoe Harper returns to the UK after five long years in New York, the last thing she expects is to find her younger sister Melody jobless, homeless, broke and dumped. Unfortunately, life has a way of delivering the unexpected. She should know that, given her ex-fiancé Greg’s faithless behaviour.
Filled with rage and determined to get revenge on the infamous Reilly brothers for her sister’s heartbreak, as well as get some answers, Zoe hatches plan Nannygate. Unfortunately that means moving in with the gorgeous but uncaring music producer Matt Reilly to be nanny to his two adorable, complicated children. But something isn’t adding up, and over the course of the hot London summer, she starts to think that perhaps Matt isn’t so bad after all.
Let down by his last nanny and weighed down with guilt about his wife’s death three years before, wealthy but camera-shy Matt has spent a long time pushing people away, including his own kids. His stunning new nanny challenges him every single day in completely different ways, but maybe that isn’t such a bad thing?
But what happens when you open your heart, and someone isn’t who you thought they were? And can it really be true love when it’s on the rebound, and starts off with a plan for revenge?
After reading the other books in the #LoveLondon series I couldn’t wait to read Picnic’s in Hyde park.
This book begins with Zoe banging down Matt’s door. She’s arrived back in the UK heartbroken to find her sister in a similar state with the added ‘bonus’ of losing her job.
Zoe is really caring and smart but she is also extremely stubborn. She gets it into her head that she needs to get revenge for Melody and comes up with this crazy plan to humiliate Matt.
Matt is a quite blunt and rude at times but deep down a great guy who loves his kids. He can get caught up in his own world and when he does he can sometimes be a bit selfish. When you get to know him you see that actually a really sweet guy.
I loved Zoe and Matt’s story all the twist and turns and the obstacles they have to overcome.
I absolutely adored how each of the characters from book 1-5 are in this book and love that they are all connected. This book is the perfect summer read and will have you craving a trip London, stat.
