From Goodreads:

When aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying for a wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground for Boston’s elite, she’s hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda.

What she doesn’t count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets, falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy, and falling out with a dangerous serial killer…

The gripping new stand-alone novel from the author of Hunting Lila. Out August 2013

Why I Can’t Wait: First of all, the main character is a nanny. That might not be my exact title, but I’ve been a caregiver for years, so I think I may really be able to relate to the main character in certain aspects just for that. Also, she likes to read AND blog! Another SCORE! Well, she blogs about music, but still! Add in a bad boy and a serial killer and I’m 100% sold! Can’t wait to give this one a read. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So many books set in Nantucket these days. I think it’s time for a visit! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I added this to my TBR after someone’s WoW last week, but I’m off to make sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Such a pretty cover! My sister LOVED Hunting Lila, so she’ll probably like this book since it’s by the same author. I’ll have to tell her. Great pick, Sara!
