In Good Company by Jen Turano

Heidi here. I have a confession to make: I am a Jen Turano fan! Yup, I've read most of her novels and they are simply wonderful. Her voice is so unique and comical, yet deep and bold at the same time. This review is for In Good Company, a 2015 release....Working my way through my kindle backlog.....Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this read.

After growing up as an orphan, Millie Longfellow is determined to become the best nanny the East Coast has ever seen. Unfortunately, her playfulness and enthusiasm aren't always well-received and she finds herself dismissed from yet another position. 

Everett Mulberry has quite unexpectedly become guardian to three children that scare off every nanny he hires. About to depart for Newport, Rhode Island, for the summer, he's desperate for competent childcare.

At wit's end with both Millie and Everett, the employment agency gives them one last chance--with each other. As Millie falls in love with her mischievous charges, Everett focuses on achieving the coveted societal status of the upper echelons. But as he investigates the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of the children's parents, will it take the loss of those he loves to learn whose company he truly wants for the rest of his life?

Millie Longfellow is such a bumbling and genuine character. The opposite of Everett Mulberry, who is responsible and stodgy. His new charges: Elizabeth, Thaddeus, and Rosetta are quite a handful, but the way Millie, as their new nanny, handles them and cares for them turns the children into loving and responsible children is amazing. The plot moves the story forward as the mystery surrounding the children's parents death unfolds. A true page-turner😀 Pick up your copy today!

Drop by our blog tomorrow as I'll be interviewing the delightful Jen Turano!
