In Good Company

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 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?

In this novel we we are taken back to a time the 1860's where social classes meant everything, and it was hard to rise above where one's lot in life is.

 We are  introduced to Millie, a nanny with some very interesting ways to deal with the children of her employers.    Hard to keep a job it seems Then  she comes into contact with Everette Mulberry.  Everette has just inherited custody of his 3 charming God children, and is in desperate need of a nanny.

This novel has a numerous story line with romance  matchmaking and even a little mystery to it.    With a little twist of  Pride and Prejudice, it is  such an enjoyable read, and highly recommended.

 I received this book as part of the In Good Company  blog tour from Radiant Lit.  I received no compensation for this review and only received a copy of the book for review purposes.

Justified is available for purchase here from Amazon.com.
