About the Book:
“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?
I can always count on Jen Turano to deliver a perfectly amusing story. I love her books.
When Millie gets dismissed from yet another nanny position, she winds up as the last resort for Everett, a member of high society that can’t seem to keep a nanny in his employ. Millie quickly gets Everett’s brats — er, I meant to say wards — under control, using very unconventional methods (of course). Meanwhile, Everett starts to fall for the spunky nanny that happens to be an accomplished escape artist and an extremely competitive tennis player.
Turano gives us her usual wit and charm throughout the story, making for a fun filled romp in historical Rhode Island. If you enjoy clean, uplifting humor with a touch of romance, you will love Turano’s books as much as I do. Happy reading!
