Lighthearted Reading

With a lighthearted, humorous writing style, Jen Turano has provided another whimsical read for the inspirational fiction lover. While fairly predictable, the storyline was both fun and engaging. Her novel has undertones from other familiar classics with a modern twist … Amelia Bedelia’s crazy, mixed-up words show up in Millie’s vocabulary; Millie’s love for kids and magical nanny-ness, along with Everett’s misplaced affections for Caroline and growing adoration for Millie, offer hints of The Sound of Music; and the timeless struggle between social classes, so prominent in Jane Austen’s works, find life again in the path Millie and Everett follow to love. Overall, a delightful read, and I look forward to Jen’s next book!
