Keeping company with a mixture of mischief, mayhem, and matters of the heart!
If you’ve never read a book by Jen Turano, you owe it to yourself to read one! ‘In Good Company’ is stamped with Jen’s distinctive style of converging clever humor and wit, slapstick comedy, mystery, romance, and even faith, together in an unforgettable package that entertains you from start to finish.
New York nanny, Miss Millie Longfellow, insists that she understands children and how to handle their mischievous antics, even if it is in a rather unorthodox fashion. She does not, however, understand the high-society mothers and their averseness to her methods. Hence, Millie finds herself unemployed yet again.
When high-society gentleman Everett Mulberry loses yet another nanny for the three unruly children he recently became guardian to, he’s left with no choice but to grudgingly accept Millie’s services. Everett’s main objective, along with the demanding Miss Caroline Dixon on his arm, is to ensure his high social standing only increases. Oh, and to keep his children alive. The unpredictable nanny and his children are making this difficult, but Everett is slowly discovering that they’re becoming quite the pleasant distraction. Of course, this doesn’t assist his relationship with the snooty Caroline.

Millie finds herself falling in love with her charges and is trying to ignore any developing feelings toward Everett. She is after all only the nanny, and will certainly never aid his position in society. But when an investigation into the mysterious disappearance of the children’s parents places them all in grave danger, will Millie and Everett discover what their true desires are before it’s too late?
This is a story that will draw you further in with every page you turn. It’s in those pages you’ll also fall in love with other delightful personalities such as the ‘not-so-subtle’ matchmaker Abigail Hart, and dictionary-loving Millie who has a tendency to hilariously use the wrong words in sentences. While wonderfully humorous, this beautiful story from Jen Turano also has real heart. Highly recommended!
