What happens when you open your home to the perfect stranger?

Anna Klein is ready to return to work as a literary agent for the first time since having children. She and her husband, Josh, decide to hire a live-in nanny with some trepidation, but all their misgivings disappear as soon as they meet Oaklynn Durst. She has stellar references, a calm disposition, and a natural way with children. Not to mention their kids simply adore her.

But not long after Oaklynn arrives, the children start to come down with the most puzzling illnesses and inexplicable injuries. When the maternal Oaklynn is there to comfort everyone, Anna can’t help feeling a little eclipsed. And suspicious. Her husband and friends assure her that her anxieties are getting the best of her—Oaklynn is perfect. But Anna’s not so sure…

As she delves into Oaklynn’s past, she discovers too late that the woman who has been living in her house is not at all who she claims to be. But Oaklynn’s not the only one who has been lying. And when everyone’s dark secrets are forced into the light, the consequences may just turn deadly.


I enjoyed this book, even though the pacing was slow and the characters were shallow, I still liked it.

I prefer books that show me the story instead of pages and pages of telling me.

But again, that’s just me. It is still a good story and leaves you guessing.

This would be a good book to take on a trip.

This book combines suspense, political intrigue, stolen art and classical music.

A winning combination in my opinion, and this Authors writing flows effortlessly.

A suspenseful, action packed ride! My review of Across The Pond by: Kenny Luckett

thWhile mourning the loss of his family, police officer and former special-ops Sean Thayer, is called to action against a world wide terrorist threat.

The characters in this book are solid and well-rounded and the dialogue and descriptive plays out like a movie in your head.

The occasional dry humor was appreciated as well.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced thriller.
