Good company is hard to find these days for Everett Mulberry. Having three rambunctious and mischievous wards doesn’t help his social or personal life at all as his almost fiancee has become mutinous and he’s had to hire a woman he wouldn’t trust watching a favoured pet, much less children under his care.
Disaster follows Millie Longfellow around like a shadow. Not that things are generally her fault, but she does have a reputation for not lasting long in one position. Though she feels her calling is caring for children, the type of people who hire nannies like Millie aren’t what she’d call good parents. And that includes Mister Everett Mulberry, whom she can more accurately call a snob.
To these two people from such vastly different social standings, Pride and Prejudice is a fairy tale. There can be no happily ever afters for a society gentleman and his ward’s nanny. But sometimes attraction and appreciation can grow even in the harshest of soils…
Written in Jen’s usual fun style, this novel doesn’t disappoint with its imaginative character quirks and descriptions, or the mayhem that ensues when Everett, his cranky girlfriend, his three wards, or their new nanny are in the same vicinity. I loved the dialogue, the situational humour, the characters, and the plot.
