Summary

Summary

Meet Jane Stuart, a widowed young mother and literary agent, and Winky, her tortoiseshell cat with a nose for trouble. Juggling book deals, rival agents, and a rocky romance with a handsome author, the last thing Jane needs is a call from her young son's school saying Marlene, his nanny, never arrived to pick him up. It looks as if the pretty nineteen-year-old has left without giving notice, and no one seems to know where she's gone.

Library Journal Review

A 19-year-old nanny's disappearance forces her employer, widowed literary agent Jane Stuart, to face up to their mutual dislike. Jane feels compelled to look for the girl and soon discovers her disreputable hangout, dangerous ex-boyfriend, and deceitful actions. Meanwhile, Jane's two-faced author-boyfriend, nine-year-old son, and "faithful" business partner contribute their own complications. Jane's na‹vet‚ and guilt fuel plenty of haphazard and sometimes clumsily handled dashing around; a lightweight, marginal purchase. (c) Copyright 2010.
