In Good Company by Jen Turano

I was just given the opportunity to read In Good Company by Jen Turano and I LOVED IT!!!  It is the story of Millie Longfellow who grew up as an orphan and all she wants is to become the best nanny in the East Coast. Sadly her enthusiasm and playfulness gets her fired from several positions and at the beginning of the story you find that she is yet again fired from her latest job. Everett Mulberry who has become the guardian for three kids, Rebecca, Rose and Thaddeus  who scare off every nanny that he hires for them with mischief. and silly pranks. When the employment agency pairs Millie and Everett together as their last resort, They both agree that there is no way that would work. Millie finally agrees to be the nanny to Everett's kids after he begs on his knees and gives her flowers ( you have to read the story to find out why he did that) As Millie watches the kids, She falls in love with each of them. While Millie watches the kids, Everett attempts to climb the social ladder by going out with Miss Caroline Dixon, A wealthy debutante. As Everett grows closer to the kids,  he starts to wonder about the mysterious circumstances surrounding their parents death.  As a visitor from out of town tries to take the kids from Millie and Everett. Everett's life starts to unravel as everything he thought was important does not seem to matter anymore and the person he thought loved him, turned out to be the exact opposite of who he thought she was. Were the kids parents killed by accident or was it murder? Will Everett ever find the one that God wants him to be with for the rest of his life?  I guess you will have to read the book to find out.

 This is the sequel to After a Fashion also by Jen Turano. It can be read as a sequel or a stand alone book. The book was very well written and has a fantastic plot, The book contains humor, love, mystery and suspense . I love the humor that Mrs. Turano put in this book, That she puts in all of her books. ( all her books make me smile)  I found the character named Millie amazing.  I like her love for learning and for the kids, I love her determination not to allow the circumstances of her past to define her.  I was so intrigued by the story that I stayed up almost all night so that I could finish the book and I was not disappointed with the ending. At the end of the book, Mrs Turano seemed to hint that she might make another book about Lucetta who is Millie's best friend next, I hope that she does because I cannot wait for her next book!!!
