In this third book, only Brazilian-born Jacqui is still nannying. Small-town native Mara is interning for a local magazine (and living on a yacht with her boyfriend), and uber-trendy Eliza is trying to break into the fashion world. The salaciousness continues in this trashy (but thoroughly entertaining) novel as the girls prepare for college. Next stop: New York City. Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

The gang from The Au Pairs ("a beach read without a doubt," according to PW) returns in The Au Pairs: Sun-Kissed by Melissa de la Cruz. Mara has set up housekeeping with Ryan Perry on his family's yacht, Jacqui plays the field, and Eliza and Jeremy seem set for happily-ever-after. Or are they? More fun in the sun is in store.

Gr 8 Up -Eliza, Mara, and Jacqui are back in a third installment in the series. Jacqui continues to be an au pair for the spoiled Perry children and faces the additional task of trying to hold together her employers' tumultuous marriage in the hopes of keeping her job. She also finds herself part of a complicated foursome as three vastly different but equally dazzling young Internet moguls move in next door and attempt to woo her. Eliza has high hopes for becoming the next big thing in fashion by working for Mikael Lappin, a washed-up designer attempting a comeback. Her dreams are interrupted, however, when Mikael's assistant, who happens to be her boyfriend's ex, sabotages her and gets her fired. Mara finds herself deep in drama as well, as her plans for a relaxing summer with on-again fling Ryan Perry are dashed, as she is always on the go in her new job as junior journalist with Hamptons magazine. As always, the girls' foibles are fun but trite. Just like the young starlets they are modeled after, the Au Pairs are fad characters who will soon be forgotten.-Jane Cronkhite, Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH
