Jen Turano has a way with her characters that make them so enjoyable. While Millie Longfellow in unconventional, her methods have a certain success even if her employers don't see it that way. She gets fired time after time for allowing children to be children. Everett Mulberry has been given custody of his godchildren who are hooligans at the very best. After several nannies have quit working for Everett, the agency only has Millie to offer him. He really didn't want her but he needed someone FAST! What he finds out is that Millie is exactly what the children need and exactly what he needs as well.
Millie has a definite prejudice against the society castes and trying to live up to high society rules and regulations. She felt that these rules separated people unnecessarily and was unfair to people who didn't know what their lineage was. Everett was dating a woman who wanted nothing more than to marry Everett and take her place among the elite in society. Everett comes to want nothing more than to spend time with the children and love them like a father. That is what Millie wanted more than anything.
In Good Company is one of the cutest books I've read in a while. I am not sure that Jen was wanting her book classified as cute, but that is the best descriptive I can come up with. Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a most unconventional nanny.
My thanks to Bethany House for allowing me to read and review this book.
