If you are looking for a sweet tale without surprises I'd recommend this book. It delivers its promise almost without originality or personality, but it's clean and an over all mindless sort of book that is occasionally useful on a rainy afternoon.
A love story with a few hiccups, a fairly predictable story, but still entertaining to read.
I had received this book as an ARC and hope to read more books from Ms. Barton. They are fun, entertaining, a treat on a holiday or a day you just want to be lazy and indulge, maybe dream a little. A perfect alternative to TV.
There were however a couple of plot points that seemed a bit silly or were unexplained. For example, I could never figure out why the Duke's butler and housekeeper were so vehemently and actively opposed to Georgette as the governess. I also wearied of the heroine's moaning about her reduced station in life in the early part of the novel.
Bottom line: it is a pleasant if wholly predictable read.
Our Duke finds himself confiding his emotions to Georgette, who in turn, attempts to locate any information that would remove the massive guilt that the Duke bares to help him come to peace with the two little charges that remind him of his dear sister. From the beginning to the end, both the governess and the Duke obtain kinks in their protective armor, allowing them to slowly open the door to their hearts, finally realizing that they also have fallen in love. This book reflects the emotional depth and complexity of the characters. Brigette Barton pulls it all together for a smooth and fluid HEA.
I was given this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
Although the storyline may seem routine, the book is not. The tensions and clashes among both major and minor characters are unusual, and some of the reasons behind them are heartbreaking. The Duke in the story needs to be shaken for his staunch edicts that frustrate the governess to no end. (Truth be told, they drove me a bit crazy, too!) The governess was trying very hard to acclimate not only to the Duke's household, but also to her newly reduced circumstances. The fact that the difficulties can eventually be resolved was totally worth a bit of lost sleep!
