To compound the mounting construction and marital chaos, her former charge, Grayer X, now 16 years old, makes a drunken, late-night visit, wanting to know why she abandoned him all those years ago. But how can she explain to Grayer what she still hasn't come to terms with herself? In an attempt to assuage her guilt, yet against every instinct, Nan tries to help Grayer and his younger brother, Stilton, through their parents' brutal divorce, drawing her back into the ever-bizarre life of Mrs. X and her Upper East Side enclave of power and privilege.
After putting miles and years between herself and this world, Nan finds she's once again on the front line of the battle with the couture-clad elite for their children's wellbeing.
With its whip-smart dialogue and keen observations of modern life, Nanny Returns gives a firsthand tour of what happens when a community that chose money over love finds itself with neither.

I liked the first book much better. This book struck me as unfocused. It jumped around so much it distracted from the main plot. To much time and detail about her wealthy so called friends. Not enough about her new life, her husbands absence and the impact the boys were having. I was disappointed.

Spoiled by narrator
I am very disappointed... I loved loved loved reading the Nanny Diaries, and was so looking forward to listening to the book. But right off the bat I couldn't get into the story because I was distracted by the narrator. You can hear every single breath she takes, and her character voices were flat. Perhaps I am being too hard on the reader... perhaps the recording was just extra sensitive to her breathing and other lip smacking like noises. Sorry Susan Bennett...
The story was fine, but I probably wasn't paying close enough attention to enjoy it...
