Publisher's Description

"Turano continues to be one of the funniest voices in the inspirational genre, and her spunky heroines will appeal to readers across the romance spectrum."--Booklist


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?

    "In Good Company" is a romantic comedy set in 1882 and takes place mainly in Newport. It's the second in a series, but this book can be read as a stand alone since each book has different main characters.

    The characters were nice people with interesting personalities. Millie has a unique way of nannying children which doesn't match what their rich parents expect from her. The hero, heroine, and children end up in a series of silly situations during which they get to know and care about each other. There's also a mystery involving the children's parents, which the main characters look into near the end.

    Several of the characters were Christians, and this was shown in how they treated people. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this humorous novel.

    Another perfectly delightful story from Jen Turano! I just couldn't seem to put it down! Which is a pretty common problem with her books. In Good Company is probably one of my favorites so far, I just love Millie's quirky personality and crazy-but-effective ways of dealing with the three rather naughty angels under her care. Not only do the children learn that they can't best their lovable nanny but so do Millie and Edward have a few things to learn.

    Having done some babysitting in my past I'm pretty partial to nanny stories and In Good Company is most definitely one of the best that I've read. Can you tell I'm totally into this author's books?

    As usual, the author treats us to her trademark romantic comedy punctuated with poignant moments and a dash of danger and villainy. There is just something satisfying about reading a Jen Turano book. You come away laughing and yet pondering what you've learned about life, faith, and love.

    If you've loved any of Jen Turano's previous books you won't want to miss In Good Company, it's a rollicking good story! Will we really have to wait until next year for the next book in the series?

    (I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my review. All opinions are entirely my own.)

    In Good Company by Jen Turano is the second book of three in the A Class of Their Own series. Millie Longfellow is a nanny who has an unfortunate history of short employment engagements. She gets along well with her charges, but surprising disasters seem to follow her. Everett Mulberry has become guardian of three children after the death of their parents. Through the few short months the children have been in his care, Everett has employed a long succession of nannies due to the antics of the children. Millie returns to the employment agency seeking new employment just as Everett is exiting the agency after requesting yet another nanny. Although the agency suggests Everett hire Millie, he is reluctant to do so until his intended bride demands he hire a nanny immediately so their social activities for the summer can resume as planned.

    I really liked Millie. She was good-natured and likeable while still maintaining discipline with the children. She enjoyed reading stories, and she was trying to expand her vocabulary by studying new words and incorporating them into her daily conversations. She occasionally used an incorrect word which had humorous results. I didnt care for Everett much at the beginning, but he grew on me as the story progressed. He had a superior attitude because of his massive wealth and proper upbringing. Over time he did learn that people had value even if they were not born into his social class. Although I have not read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, several times throughout the book the situation between Millie and Everett was mentioned as paralleling that of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. There was a bit of a mystery throughout the story, and it had a surprising twist near the end. Although this was book two in a three book series, it could definitely be read as a stand-alone story. I have not read book one of this series, but I look forward to reading it as well as book three in the future.

    I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
