Release Date: December 15, 2009

Nanny Returns, the much-anticipated sequel to the The Nanny Diaries, picks up twelve years after the original hit novel left off. Nan and her husband, “Harvard Hottie” Ryan, have returned to New York after a long period of living abroad to begin a new life. Amid the chaos of starting a business, renovating their home and adjusting to a new position at a pretentious private school, Nan re-connects with Grayer X, and his younger brother Stilton. To placate their feelings of abandonment at her departure over a decade ago, she vows to help the boys through their parents’ nasty divorce. As she is again sucked into the X family’s vicious society of privilege and power, she witnesses the damage that this life has done to the boys. These realizations, along with Ryan’s push to start a family, make Nan question whether or not she has the stomach for motherhood.

Authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus drew from their own experiences working as nannies for New York’s high society when they wrote The Nanny Diaries. Over four million copies were sold, pushing  The Nanny Diaries to the number one spot on the New York Times bestsellers list in 2002. Demand is expected to be high for Nanny Returns, and early critics reviews have been favorable. Entertainment Weekly describes the novel as “eminently readable”, while The New York Post finds it “another deliciously addictive glimpse into the lives of the ultra-rich and their children.”
