What a great and wonderful book! Ok, maybe I’m a bit emotionally vulnerable due to evacuating ahead of Hurricane Florence. I’m under a lot of stress right now! And maybe this emotional vulnerability left me ripe and ready for a romance novel to play on my heartstrings. But I don’t care! The Governess Game was great and you should read it!
It’s perfectly delightful in the way of the best romance novels. Funny and also poignant, light-hearted and also deeply emotional. The book is really about how we build our hopes and desires, and how we see ourselves and our worthiness to achieve those hopes and desires. It’s heavy stuff wrapped up in fluffy bow of will-they-won’t-they tension, stolen kisses, clandestine meetings, and overwhelming desire.
Listen, just read it already. It’s a freakin’ delight. 5 stars.
