When aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying for a wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground for Boston's elite, she's hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda.

What she doesn't count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets, falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy, and falling out with a dangerous serial killer...

This book interested me in a spooky way. I got goosebumps when I read the description. Just imagine falling in love with a serial killer. And what if you're the next person he's targeting? Creepy... And the title and tagline doesn't make it any not scarier.
