I'm only giving this one a three on Goodreads because the ending really let me down. After so much build up, the ending was rushed. Yes you eventually find out who killed the young girl, but you don't know what happened to the protagonist. The book goes from her recounting how she read an ad for a nanny job, was eventually offered the gig and moved in and started carrying for the family. The nanny recounts all the mysterious events that went on in the house in letters to her lawyer from jail. This part of the book was really great and I was trying to figure out who was behind everything. But then at the end of the book, the narrator changes and we have no clue what ultimately happens to the nanny. Is she still in jail? Did something else happen? You have no clue how her story ends, and after all the time spent with her, it felt wrong to not know what happened.
