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?

This is my current nightly indulgence read and I’ve found I’ve missed a few Turano books as well. Jen Turano is an author that makes me smile and I just delight in falling between the pages of her creatively witty stories set in the regal 1880s New York. These feminist creatures are intelligent and fun and I’d love to know them in person, but on the page is the second best. I cannot wait to see what happens next and then head back to catch the stories I’ve missed.

*This post was originally published on July 9, 2015. I am updating it now with a finished reading status and review.

Jen is such a humorous author and I love the witty characters that jump off her pages. I am soon to read After a Fashion as I some how missed getting myself a copy of that one (had a baby or some such life chaos). I delighted in every page of In Good Company. It is a different stream than her Ladies of Distinction series, but I get the feeling that the series of A Class of Their Own is going to be just as entertaining.

Millie is an awesome, yet slightly complicated character. She reminds me of a character named Sarah from another book I read, but only faintly. Millie is more of what would happen to Sarah later type of situation. Yet, there is also a slight bit of Eliza in her, yet different. I really liked getting to know her on the page. I’m eager to read more about her friends in the rest of the series.
