I was so charmed by Millie’s character in “After a Fashion” that I couldn’t wait to read her own story. Well, I finally had the chance and as expected I loved it. My only complaint is that it ended much too soon and now I have to wait again for the next volume of this wonderful series.
Millie’s character brought back memories of my grandmother who was feisty, funny, and had a similar tendency to get words mixed up. We still laugh about the time she told us that a person must be scenic but meant psychic. With all her fun-loving ways, I would like to think that in her younger days my grandmother may have been much like Millie.
Aside from my personal memories, “In Good Company” absolutely lived up to my expectations. It was humorous, romantic, and entertaining yet did not fail to impart a spiritual message as well. Peppered with numerous laugh-out-loud scenes from the very beginning, the story captured my interest and wouldn’t let go until the final page. I loved touching base with characters from “After a Fashion”, several of whom continued to play strong supporting roles.
Jen Turano is my go-to author when I need a light-hearted book that will be sure to cheer up the darkest mood. If you haven’t tried one of her novels, please do yourself a favor and pick up one (or all) of them.
