Review - Picnics in Hyde Park by Nikki Moore
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?
A great series by Miss Nikki Moore! Simply romantic - I have loved each that I have read to date and can't wait to read the rest!
What a lovely romantic story - I loved it from beginning to end!
Will Zoe want to remember this adventure (to say the least) for the rest of her life? Or will she want to run away, possibly to the US (again) and escape the disaster she created?
Not only has Greg ruined her life and sent her packing but she is now caught up in drama that can simply not end well for anyone.
Her sister, Melody, was a nanny for a famous music producer in London and then one day he kicked her out - never told her why, she couldn't say good bye to her children, nothing. She was told to leave and never contact him again. Zoe, well trying to make up for leaving Melody 5 years prior for a man, decides to step in and teach Matt a lesson. She entitles it Nannygate...
Only one little problem - she may have fallen in love with the man she is suppose to take down? Oh boy...
She has also fallen in love with children - Jasper and Aimee - how will she ever live with herself for hurting these to innocent children? Especially after she has helped them process their grief from losing their mother at such an early age?
This story will have you on so many twists and turns and twists again you won't want to put it down! Excellent writing, great scene depiction and so much await you!
A rose would be a great choice for a romantic picnic in Hyde Park or any park of your choosing <3
I rate this truly divine London love story 5 glasses of wine - I simply could not put it down!
