In Good Company By Jen Turano


In Good Company

This is the first book I have read by Jen Turano.  After reading I can honestly say I would love to read more.  In Good Company is book two in the A Class of Their Own series.  I have not read book one, and didn’t feel like it was necessary to enjoy book two.  That being said after reading this book I would love to read the first book in the series.  Turano kept me interested and made it almost impossible to put the book down.  She had me laughing out loud in one moment and shaking my head in the next.  Her characters were interesting and I enjoyed getting to know them.  I love reading a story about how love doesn’t care what “class” you were born into.

Millie is unlike anyone you’ve ever met.  She is full of life, and loves playing with kids.  This makes her job as nanny perfect for her.  That is unless you are the parents of those kids.  Millie tends to get into mischief, and even though she really isn’t doing anything wrong, often ends up dismissed.  Millie can see behind her charges misbehavior, but no one gives her enough of a chance to help them.  When Millie and Everett are forced to work with each other, she can’t help but fall in love with his charges.

Everett is used to everyone speaking carefully around him since he has high ranking among the peers.  So when Millie isn’t afraid to confront him or tell him what’s on her mind, he can’t help but find her amusing.  Millie only has everyone’s best interest at heart, and Everett can see she is good for his family.  He always planned on marrying Caroline, knowing that they only have a mutual respect for each other.  Can Everett go through with those plans?  Or could he possibly marry for love?  Will he realize what he can have with Millie, or will it be too late?

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction.  I enjoyed reading the whole book, and couldn’t help but finish it in one day.  Turano held my interest, and had me holding my breath to see what would happen next. I will definitely be keeping my eye out for the next book in this series.  I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions expressed are my own.
