Book Review

‘The Governess Club: Bonnie’ by Ellie Macdonald

tgcb emSTORY: 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 her new employer to be the most frustrating, overbearing, and…handsome man she’s ever seen.

Sir 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 the next victim. But he can’t concentrate on anything but his growing infatuation with the beautiful, mysterious, and utterly captivating governess.

Together they’re doing their best to save the two boys, but will Stephen’s feelings for Bonnie get in the way of their search for a killer?

REVIEW: 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 presentation.

In 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 enjoyment.

Since this author is new to me and so far I’ve only experienced her voice in only short stories, I’m looking forward to reading the next two books in this series as both of those stories will be full books and not novellas.
