Millie Longfellow finds herself fired from yet another nanny position after her unconventional ways do not meet favor with her employer. The nanny agency agrees to give her one more chance and pairs her with none other than Everett Mulberry, a friend of a friend and a society gentleman who has suddenly become guardian to three rather unruly children, children who have managed to drive away every nanny thus far. Millie, annoyed by Everett’s rather snobbish ways, focuses on taking the children in hand while he pursues the favor of the social elite. But when further investigation reveals that the deaths of the children’s parents may not be what it seems, both Everett and Millie must work together to solve the mysteries and dangers surrounding the children’s past.
Yet another delightful read by Jen Turano! This author crafts such hilarious escapades that it is easy to fall in love with the characters, especially Millie’s rather unconventional methods of interacting with children. The spiritual messages are subtle and brilliantly interwoven, the scenes are creative and vividly painted, and the dialogue is hilarious and endearingly spoken, creating a novel that is truly a joy to read. The plot contains a few unsuspected twists to round out a story that is amusing and charming. I adore all of this author’s novels and this one is no exception! Most highly recommended!
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
