Review: Dr. Anderson's Nanny

Summary (from Goodreads)Magical Nanny University graduate Wednesday is excited about her first assignment at Dr. Thomas Anderson's home. Since the death of his wife, Tom has buried himself in his work. He has little time for his three daughters. Wednesday's first goal is to make Tom see how important it is to spend time with his little girls. Secondly, she needs to get rid of his girlfriend (with a little magic of course ) who hasn't a shred of compassion or love for his children. Third, she wants to bring laughter and fun into his life. But Wednesday never plans on falling head over heels in love with Tom. It's forbidden for her kind to love a mortal. How will she ever explain she's a cauldron-boiling witch to the scientific doctor and that she has to leave him and his girls forever when all her goals are achieved?

Review: There are so many things wrong with this book, I don't know where to begin. The on/ off attraction between Wednesday, the magical nanny, and Dr. Anderson, surgeon widower extraordinaire, are downright tedious. And also, Wednesday is a pretty bad nanny. Not just because she kisses her employer ON HER FIRST DAY AS NANNY, but also that all she ever feeds the three girls is junk food (seriously, healthy eating habits can be in literature too)! In short, Dr. Anderson's Nanny fails miserably to string together a good plot, only moments and glimpses of what it could have been.

Senator Recommends:


  1. Awwww I loved this one. It's over the top but I dug it.

    1. I think because it was so over the top and the romantic bits were on/off, it really wore me down. But I liked the concept of it, so there's something.
