About the book:
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?
A historical romance filled with mayhem!
I loved getting to know Millie Longfellow. She is a young woman of great character that it would be a pleasure to call friend. We met her in the first book of this series and had a glimpse into her past in that story. Jen Turano has dome an absolutely marvelous job in this book in developing this wonderful and loveable character.
With such an incredible heroine it would have been a crime to slack off when it came to writing a hero for her. I’m very pleased that Jen stepped up to the challenge and put just as much effort into making Everett Mulberry just as memorable as Millie is.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the wonderful matchmaking matrons, the truly evil villains, and the delightfully mischievous children and animals. As with each of Jen’s books I found plenty to make me laugh in this story.
If you are looking for a rollicking fun romantic comedy, look no further. If you are looking for an accurate depiction of life for high society New Yorkers in 1882, you should probably look for another book.
