PRAISE FOR THE NANNY MURDERS


“Fast-paced, fun first mystery. Jones serves up grim details, building suspense slowly at first, then with an accelerating pace that will leave readers breathless for the nuanced finale.”

Publishers Weekly


“Absolutely fantastic, a novel with so many unexpected twists and turns that readers will feel like they are on a fast merry-go-round. This is a character-driven who-done-it with plenty of action…The Nanny Murders will appeal to a wide range of readers.”

The Midwest Book Review


“Ms. Jones’s first novel is a page-turning success. Her characters are believable, multifaceted, and charming. It’s hard to put down.”

Dallas Morning News


“A fast-paced novel that has the reader hooked from chapter one.”

The Book Review Café


“The Nanny Murders is a brooding, suburban nightmare with twists and turns to the very last page, a suspenseful story with a thoughtful and complex heroine in Zoe Hayes.”

—Faye Kellerman, author of Street Dreams


“Wow. What a zinger of a mystery! Zoe Hayes, like the inner-city block she lives on, is in perpetual, chaotic transition: a 4I-year-old single mom intent on raising an adopted daughter, connecting with friends, and making a life that does not include nanny-napping and murder. Zoe is smart, tough, and tender, the mystery is taut, the settings vivid, the characters authentic. This may be Merry Jones’s first novel, but she is already an accomplished writer.”
