In Good Company (A Class of Their Own series, book 2) by Jen Turano

The second book, In Good Company, has released in the series A Class of Their Own by Jen Turano. Jen has the reputation of being very funny and I was excited to read this novel.  Find out more about the book and what I thought below!

From the Back Cover:
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 ever 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?

My Review:
Jen Turano has written another quick-witted, funny story that had me smiling as I read.  The way she can paint a scene headed for disaster is really quite amazing.  I enjoyed reading about Millie Longfellow and her pending disasters she seems to find herself in all the time.  Her character was pleasant and enjoyable.  Everett Mulberry is really steeped in the system of the upper class.  Sometimes, he was quite frustrating with his choices.  But his character was a good addition to the story line.  I did end up reading this book without reading the first book in this series. I don't think it's absolutely necessary to keep them in order, but it would of been nice to have been familiar with Harriet Peabody's story from the first book. If you're looking for a good laugh and a fun story, make sure to pick up this newest book in Jen Turano's A Class of Their Own series.  It will have you smiling from ear to ear.

***I received this book free from the publisher, Bethany House, in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
