Just because it is a shorter novel doesn't mean that a lack of plausible character and plot development is acceptable.
There are many historical romance novels with governess heroines, but Julia Kelly managed to weave a unique story with a doctor hero, instead of the typical titled lord. Edward was also very kind and didn't believe that he was above Elizabeth, even though she was a governess, which is something I liked about him. I also liked Elizabeth and Edward together. Their romance was sweet and heartwarming, even if it was predictable. And Elizabeth was a great heroine because she was serious about her position and loved the children she took care of, but because of that, the story fell apart a little bit for me. I couldn't help becoming frustrated that Elizabeth risked her job to kiss Edward, especially because Elizabeth and Edward would kiss in hallways and open rooms where anyone could easily walk in on them. I also thought the plot was lacking since the author focused so much on the romance.
Overall, I enjoyed The Governess Was Wicked and recommend it to anyone looking for a historical romance novel featuring a sweet relationship between a governess and a doctor.
I liked this one quite a bit. Like Wild, it had a depth that one wouldn’t expect from a novella, though its plot was just as simple as Wild’s. However, I’m afraid I didn’t feel as close to Elizabeth and Edward as I did Jane and Nicholas. Also, it seemed to me that their relationship was based on attraction and not friendship so much. The book was trying too hard to be sexy when I would have rather seen them bond on an intellectual level.
