Review: In Good Company


In Good Company
Jen Turano

Synopsis from Goodreads:
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?


After getting fired once again from her position as a nanny, Millie finds herself in the position of either having to quite being a nanny completely or working for a man who does not want her as a nanny. The only problem is, neither of them have any other options left. So, with some convincing for both of them, Millie takes the job as nanny for Everett’s unruly children.

In Good Company by Jen Turano was a beautifully hilarious book. The author wove a lovely story with troubled children, sweet romance, funny instances, and a slight mystery.

Oh, the situations that nanny and those kids got into! Even Everett found himself caught up in their shenanigans. Rope, flour, peacocks, water, and trees all played a part in the children’s fun. I laughed through the first half of the book because of that and the other situations the strong-willed Millie got herself into.

Everett started the book as kind of a stuck up, spoiled society man. He had to be the perfect society gentleman without a single part of his life unruly. Unfortunately, the three children he gained with his friend’s death did not think the same way. I enjoyed watching him grow even as his world fell apart because of those kids.

The kids, of course, were not totally horrible either. They were ignored and grieving. Besides that, even the worst children can be sweet sometimes. The care Millie gave them helped change them. She really was a wonderful nanny.

In conclusion, I adored this book. The humor was worth remembering. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves sweet romance, kids, and a good laugh.

I received a free copy of this review from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
