    A historical romance filled with mayhem!

    I loved getting to know Millie Longfellow. She is a young woman of great character that it would be a pleasure to call friend. We met her in the first book of this series and had a glimpse into her past in that story. Jen Turano has dome an absolutely marvelous job in this book in developing this wonderful and loveable character. With such an incredible heroine it would have been a crime to slack off when it came to writing a hero for her. I’m very pleased that Jen stepped up to the challenge and put just as much effort into making Everett Mulberry just as memorable as Millie is. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the wonderful matchmaking matrons, the truly evil villains, and the delightfully mischievous children and animals. As with each of Jen’s books I found plenty to make me laugh in this story. If you are looking for a rollicking fun romantic comedy, look no further. If you are looking for an accurate depiction of life for high society New Yorkers in 1882, you should probably look for another book. I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

    A delightful book!

    In Good Company by Jen Turano is the second book in A Class of Their Own series. Millie Longfellow is nanny who carries a dictionary in her apron pocket (for when she needs to look up a word she does not know) and frequently gets fired. It is really not her fault that she gets fired. She is a good nanny and does what it is in the best interest of the children (it is the adults who never listen). Everett Mulberry has been guardian to his three godchildren for five months and they have gone through over a dozen nannies. The only nanny available is Millie. Everett knows about Millie (through his friend Oliver and his fiancé, Harriet). Everett’s finance, Caroline Dixon is ready to depart for Newport, Rhode Island for the summer and she insists that Everett hire a nanny immediately. Everett hires Millie (she manages to get a good fee too). Millie’s methods are unorthodox, but they work (she tied the children to chairs, but they tied her up first). You just know the trip to Newport is not going to go smoothly. When Millie beats Caroline at tennis (and then accidently whacks in the head with the ball), Caroline sets out get rid of Millie. Unfortunately for Caroline, Everett will not fire Millie. The kids are taken with her and are finally starting to settle down. When Everett’s parents arrive at a very inopportune moment, things look a little hopeless for Millie (again). But Everett’s parent take a shine to Millie and work with Abigail Hart (Millie’s friend and patron) to do a little matchmaking. Then Lucetta Plum shows up in Newport. Lucetta is an actress (with high morals) and very beautiful. She is a little unorthodox though. Abigail has some matchmaking plans for Lucetta, but they are put on hold (for book three). With Abigail, Everett’s parents, Lucetta, and the children working on getting Everett and Millie together, it is going to be a fun summer (Millie and Everett’s resistance is futile). If they could just get rid of Caroline! Caroline is a very determined woman. She is used to getting her own way and she wants Everett (even though she does not love him). Will Everett be able to change his snobbish ways and see what a wonderful life he could have with Millie and the children? In Good Company was just a delight to read! I read it in under three hours (between midnight and 3 a.m.). Jen Turano captured my interest right away and held it until the very last page. I give In Good Company 5 out of 5 stars! I cannot wait until the next book in the series (with Lucetta Plum). If you are looking for some romance, mystery, and laughs, than In Good Company is the book for you! While In Good Company is the second book in the series, it can easily be read as a stand alone book. I received a complimentary copy of In Good Company from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
