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?
Jen Turano has the best ability to weave humor into her stories. And I have to say, In Good Company is her best book yet! She is able to bring in to her story adventure, humor, mystery, and some of the best characters that you can relate to and want to hang out with.

Millie was just phenomenal. She has to work to support herself and she tries her hardest at her jobs, it's just they don't always work out. She also strives to learn. I loved that about her. She is constantly reading! She may not know how to properly say the word, from only reading it, but she yearns to learn and know. I loved that! People like her are the best in my opinion. Millie was a fantastic character to follow and when she was with Everett it made it all the more fun!

It was a delight to dive back into this world with these characters. After A Fashion got the ball rolling and I can't wait to see what happens in Playing the Part, book 3 of the Class of Their Own series.

Too Read!
