Beautiful, slightly haunting
Forget Lullaby, this is the original and it's far better.
When this book arrived I was quite excited to read it as it's a lot different from what I normally choose to read. A little stranger was a very fast paced read I think but entirely captivating throughout.The characters throughout are well developed and I enjoyed getting to know them and their personality's.

A nanny with a crush on the man of the house is almost expected, but this seems to be more. It seems a little stranger…

Very distracting book. Not coherent enough.
