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 book by one of my favorite authors, with a heroine who not only shares my occupation but also my love of books, and a secondary character named after me, um yeah sign me up! I always get excited about a new Jen Turano book but I'm not ashamed to admit that I was even a little more eager for this one! Millie and Everett were both fun characters in the first book of this series and I couldn't wait to see how their relationship would play out. Thankfully the author didn't disappoint and their whole romance was perfectly adorable and highly amusing! I loved Millie's unique approach to nannying and Everett's reactions to the things she did! I was constantly laughing out loud at the situations that they kept finding themselves in! I once again enjoyed the cast of characters surrounding the hero and heroine and all the crazy things they did. Caroline Dixon though was quite the unpleasant character and she drove me a bit mad. There was also a bit of a mystery to solve and it was intriguing to watch play out! I absolutely loved this book and I cannot wait for Lucetta's story!
