NANNY FOR 10-YR-OLD TWINS. MAINE COAST. OWN ROOM & GENEROUS SALARY. MUST LOVE BLACK. “Must love black?” Sounds like a coffee-loving, seclusion-seeking goth girl's dream job. Philippa isn’t fazed by the fog-enshrouded mansion on a cliff, the weirdest twins on the planet, or even the rumors about ghosts, ‘cause when she meets the estate’s hot gardener, Philippa’s pretty sure she’s found her dream boy, too. Too bad Geoff’s already taken…by a girl whose wardrobe is head-to-toe pink. Still, Philippa can’t get Geoff out of her head. What will it take to lure him to the dark side?

This book was a slight disapointment. It seemed like the boy thing was a huge deal, but it only took up a small portion of the book.

Philippa was a very good character. She didn't hold anything back and did what had to be done. Whenever something in the book annoyed me, it annoyed Philippa too. She didn't just sit back and roll in the annoying, she got off her booty and did something about it.

Though the book itself was okay, the ending was rushed. We didn't get any closure or assurance.

Hmmm never heard of this before.

Thanks for the honest review, I hate rushed endings.
