Issue I eally enjoyed the story and the mystery of who was after the Darrows was thrilling I never suspected who it turned out to be The story was grea This novella was short and sweet but not terribly engaging Bonnie s mother had been a governess who became a ich man s mistress she aised her daughter to be a governess Thus I found it incredible that Bonnie would so easily fall into bed with Sir Stephen There was a mystery but it wasn t much of one Sir Stephen is no Sherlock he doesn t even ask who would inherit the title if the new young viscount dies Ellie Macdonald is a competent writer but the plot had inconsistencies For example after witnessing their parents deaths in a carriage accident the little boys efuse to ide in a carriage Later they are complaining about having to walk to the village noting that the carriage would have been warmer They efuse to leave Bonnie s side so she sleeps on a trundle bed in their oom but later they have their own separate ooms Sir Stephen is said to have inherited a barony in which case he would be Lord Something and not Sir Stephen I would not ecommend this book I didn t very far into this book The hero and heroine just did not click for me Book 3 Sara was my favorite of this series The second book novella from upcoming author Ellie MacdonaldBonnie Hodges is a governess to children of late Viscount Darrow After the accident that killed both the Viscount and his Viscountess Bonnie vow to not left the children at least not until their guardian come However when the guardian finally come it become apparent that caring of those two orphaned is not his number one priority But why oh why despite his arrogance she find herself to be intrigued with himSir Stephen Montgomery the guardian find himself to be thinking about the beautiful governess a lot But he got bigger problem in hand He s suspicious that his friend the late Viscount was actually murdered And he fear that the new Viscount would be the next target Together they try to keep the boys save and uncover the villain who intend to finish his job The book started eally well But after some pages I feel that the narrative annoyed me for a bit I find the writing to be inconsistent The pace move too fast The characters while at first appear to be interesting become bland and boring The heat and passion in their supposed omance almost non existend And the mystery is not much mystery either I think everyone would guess correctly the villain ight from the start The book had a lot potential unfortunately it failed to explore the possibilities Maybe if it was full lenght novel instead of novella the story would be much better However I think Ellie Macdonald is a promising author I hope she ll be patient in developing her plot and characters for next book In the second of the Governess Club we meet up with Bonnie whose stuck in between a ock and a hard place She s the only thing her students who are in her care Henry and Arthur have after the sudden death of their parents Something evil is looming over the estate and things seem to come to ahead when the boys guardian finally arrive Sir Stephen Montgomery Stephen and Boonie may butt heads but it s up to these two to keep the boys out of danger that seems to be dr. Her new employer to be the most frustrating overbearing andhandsome man she's ever seenSir Stephen Montgomery is utterly distracted He should be trying to figure out how his two best friends were killed in a suspicious accident and why the new young viscount seems destined to be.
I m not sure why both the first and second story in this series were presented to us as short novellas I think if they were combined it would have been a better presentationIn any case the second story was good but it lacked focus on the main characters yet I still found it interesting and entertaining I also thought the plot intriguing and the fast pace contributed to my over all enjoymentSince this author is new to me and so far I ve only experienced her voice in only short stories I m looking forward to eading the next two books in this series as both of those stories will be full books and not novellasMelanie for b2bComplimentary copy provided by the publisher The second novella in MacDonald s Governess Club series features Bonnie who as the beginning letters to Claire the heroine of the first novella explain has emained with her charges after their parents untimely deaths a couple months previously She s worked with the two boys for almost three years and after witnessing their parents deaths decides to stay on until their Guardian arrives and hopefully is able to help the boys in their griefWhereas Claire s novella set up an unlikely scenario Bonnie s is ealistic in its portrayal With the eldest now the Viscount at merely 8 years old the youngest all but mute and both unwilling to leave Bonnie s side for then a few minutes at a time it made sense for Bonnie to stay on until they grew accustomed to their guardian a friend of their parents I liked that Bonnie didn t let their guardian Sir Stephen a landless baron push her around in egards to what the boys needed While he may have had his heart in the ight place he doesn t understand what they needed to feel comfortable with him or their new circumstancesThe underlying mystery of who killed the children s parents is a good one though MacDonald played her hand too uickly with who it could be Stephen and Bonnie work through the possibilities and attack the uestion intelligently elying on evidence and a bit of history diggingAs for the omance its a slow build like Claire s was I did get a bit annoyed with Bonnie s constant Sir Sir Sir ing It started to sound less then espectful at one point in fact Oh And it was a ather amusing conversation Stephen had with the young viscount In child like innocence all the kid wants is to keep Bonnie with them forever but he understands she can t stay on So his solution would be to marry her but he feels he might be a bit young for that so wouldn t Stephen please marry Bonnie just to keep her around Out of the mouths of babes and all that A lovely continuation of The Governess Club series Bonnie was a wonderful historical omance novella Bonnie was a lovely heroine I eally liked how dedicated she was to her charges and those two little boys were adorable Her loyalty to them and her determination to take care of and protect them made her a likable character She was great I eally liked herStephen was also wonderful He was eally sweet Like Bonnie he s very loyal He was a great hero and I eally liked himThe plot was well paced I was kept interested the entire way through The only eason this novella isn t getting full stars is because I just wasn t totally hooked It wasn t eally a problem though just a minor. Miss Bonnie Hodges governess to the Darrow family is desperately trying to hold it together Tragedy has struck and she is the sole person left to be strong for the two little boys in her care When the new guardian arrives she hopes that things will get better She wasn't expecting.
Awing closer There was a few conflicting details that didn t take away from the story but the characters themselves didn t feel as fleshed out as in Claire Sir Stephen while acted like a hero whose been through alot but never seem to truly thawed and his sudden love for Bonnie seem just to sudden Bonnie was a wonderful character who protected her wards and goes through some inger while keeping her wits about her I felt it was believable that she fell in love with Stephen then he with her Unlike Claire the omance lacked uiet a bit There was a great mystery to whose out to get id of the whole Darrow family but it was pretty easy to figure out who the eal villain was I think the mystery overwhelmed the whole of the book not giving oom for much of anything else While a nice addition to the series just not a very strong one Disclosure I eceived this book from the tour organizer via Edelweiss as part of the book tour Thank you to Tasty Book Tours to Ellie MacDonald and to Avon Impulse for the o This title can be ead as a stand alone All the governess are introduced in book one and each subseuent story is about a different governessBonnie was aised to be a governess by her mother She enjoys her job but when the Governess Club comes up with the plan to get their independence by offering private lessons she agrees Being their own boss and taking only the charges they want make the governess lives similar Bonnie s one problem ight now is the ecent death of her employers in a carriage accident Since their guardian Sir Stephen Montgomery has yet to arrive she finds herself thrust into a mothering ole for her young charges When Sir Stephen arrives all he wants to do is get to the bottom of how is best friend was murdered Not knowing who to trust he watches everyone but finds himself drawn to the uiet governess Trusting her becomes necessary and together they endeavor to keep the boys safe and find the perpetrator Like the first book in the series we are treated to characters that aren t part of the haut ton Stephen is a baron but he is landless so while he does outrank Bonnie it doesn t take him long to overlook the fact that she is just the governess I enjoyed watching Stephan and Bonnie slowly come together There wasn t any instant love or even lust As they get to know each other they start to develop feelings that they eventually act on There is a murder plot in the story and while it is pretty significant I had the bad guy figured out almost from the start We get to see a little of what happens to the characters from book one We get to see letters that Bonnie writes to Claire the heroine from book one They show us what Claire is up to and how things are going with the Governess Club I am looking forward to eading in this series as they come out Still felt American and I detest the use of contemporary words like process eferring to thinking and phrases like in the same page in present day context these distort the Timeline for me thus making this work inauthentic Good storyline though not too commonPS I would apologize in advance if the above mentioned examples of word and phrase do not efer to this particular book but I am pretty sure they appeared in one of those I ead egarding The Governess Clu.
