It is with great delight that I break my own blog-tour rules and hop on this one, for the wonderful new novel from Nicola Cassidy. The Nanny at Number 43 is officially launched into the world today and I have the honour of hosting a Q&A session with the author, in Waterstones, Drogheda, later this evening. Feel free to drop in and say 'Hi', from 6.30pm. But, as we are on the East Coast of Ireland and you may be in sunnier climes, I have a signed copy to giveaway to one lucky reader. Just enter via the rafflecopter link at the end of the page. Open INT and closes 26th July. Good Luck!


The Blurb


Wanted, a respectable woman to care for a motherless child.

When William D. Thomas’s wife dies in childbirth, he places an advertisement in his local newspaper seeking a nanny for his newborn child.

He is thankful when an experienced nanny arrives at 43 Laurence Street and takes over from his frazzled housekeeper Mrs McHugh.

Mrs McHugh confides in her bedridden friend Betty, who has a bird’s-eye view of all the happenings on Laurence Street, that the Nanny is not all she seems. Betty begins her own investigation into the mysterious woman.

When the bodies of twin babies are discovered buried in a back garden, by a family who have moved from their tenement home into a country cottage, a police investigation begins.

But it is Betty who holds the key to discovering who the Nanny really is … and the reason she came to 43 Laurence Street.
