I was hooked on this book from the moment I started reading itSeraphine and Danny are twins and they have an older brother; Edwin They have recently lost their father and Seraphine starts to look into their pastThe book moves between the early 90s when Edwin has an au pair Laura and the current day For some reason when reading about the 90s I felt like I was reading about a time much earlierThe chapters are from Seraphine and Laura’s points of view Both characters are well written as is the whole bookI felt that it went on a little bit too long and the actions of some characters felt a little bit too unrealistic Other than that it was a great read and I would recommend it

The Au PairEned that dayIf V C Andrews and Kate Morton had a literary love child Emma Rous' USA Today bestseller The Au Pairwould be itOne of the most anticipated books of from Pop Sugar Bustle Cosmo Parade and GoodreadsSeraphine Mayes and her twin brother Danny were born in the middle of summer at their family's estate on the Norfolk coast Within hours of their birth their mother threw herself from the cliffs the au pair fled and the village thrilled with whispers of dark cloaks changelings and the aloof couple who drew a young nanny into their inner circleNow an adult Seraphine mourns the recent death of her father While going through his belongings she uncovers a family photograph that raises dangerous uestions It was taken on the day the twins were born and in the photo their mother surrounded by her husband and her young son is smiling serenely and holding just one baby Who is the child and what really happened t. Oooh the intrigue So deliciously satisfying altogether Secrets and lies babies and affairs and murderation all thrown in together and most artfully untangled by Ms Rous I have to say She's done a superb job It had me tied up in knots at time trying to piece together who was who etcso all credit to her for NEVER getting a character's name misplaced One word that sprang to mind reading this if I needed to describe it in one only was clusterfuyou know the one I mean It's mainly set in the early 90s and nowadays although the 90s portions made me imagine it was a longer time ago Seraphine managed to irritate me uite a lot especially when she kept throwing away food down the waste disposal I thought little Edwin was just a peach I did wonder at fireworks going off in the new year in 1992 as I only recall that being a 'thing' after 2000 howeverThere was nary a mistake throughout either making it even of a pleasure to read I only spotted a dropped hyphen sonin law and disks used and not discsI can't really say much regarding the plot as it would give stuff away and I never do that You'll just need to believe me it's very good indeed and she's an author to look out for
