Favorite Quote: “Were you just… praying?” Everett asked.
“I always pray before I proceed with life-threatening situations.”
“Does it help?”
“I’m still alive, aren’t I?”

This was my first book by Jen Turano, and I can’t wait to read another one! All of her characters were unique and her writing pulled me into their world.The main character, Millie, had me laughing so much! She isn’t the normal proper nanny most people expect. Her discipline methods include tying children to chairs and dumping water on their heads. No, she doesn’t torture them ;)
The main male character, Everett, inherits three children after the death of a dear friend and doesn’t know what to do with them. That’s where Millie comes in. He is courting a very snobby society lady, Caroline, not due to genuine attraction but because it will benefit both of them. I really enjoyed his character, even if he was a little oblivious sometimes. I did dislike Caroline with a passion. There aren’t many characters I hate but she grated on my nerves immensely! I think that was the point ;)
I loved this book and will definitely be coming back to visit these characters again.
I received this book for free from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review
