Book Review: In Good Company

Posted: August 22, 2015 in Uncategorized

Title: In Good Company
Author: Jen Turano
Publisher: Bethany House



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?


I could tell from the cover art that this was going to be a light hearted read. I was not wrong. I found myself laughing out loud with the first chapter. The main character Millie Longfellow reminds me of an older Pippi Longstocking. She is consistently doing things that mean well that others see negatively.

The author had me smiling and laughing throughout the book. I will be interested to see more from  the Author. This was a perfect book for reading to unwind after a long day.


I received a copy of this book from Graf-Martin on behalf of Bethany House Publishers.
