    Aaaand… I’m done at %18.The author literally just introduced the (innocent redhead) “Cinderella’s” stepfamily as: Evil stepmother = blonde. Evil eldest stepsister = beautiful blonde. Poor, downtrodden middle stepsister = brunette. Evil youngest stepsister = nasty little blonde.Uh, romance authors? Could we stop with the misogyny??!! Fair-haired beauty does not equal evilness, just as being a brunette or a redhead does not make a woman a kind-hearted genius.I think maybe Cinderella stor [...]

    "The Governess Tales series starter is charming. Lee reimagines the fairy tale complete with cruel employers, a most unlikely fairy god father and a perfect nobleman. . The even pacing and sweet romance makes for the ideal, light read" (RT Book Reviews).Miniseries: The Governess Tales

  • Mia

    Ugh. This is one of the worst pieces of shit that I've ever had the misfortune to come across. The more I think of it, the worse it gets.The heroine is a weak, meek, and hugely annoying creature who never speaks her mind; thus ultimately causing a lot of bother for both herself and others. She even goes as far as to abandon a man at the altar because she couldn't say how she felt. This however, is not a problem for the author, as we never get to hear how the poor jilted groom to be dealt with su [...]

    Why I love my Kindle found the third book in the shop, needed to read books one and two in the series. Lovely story. I do love a good Cinderella theme.

  • Angela

    Very good book. Must read again.

  • Michelle

    Reviewed for marysuediesA lovely happily ever after fairytale.The reason that I love romance novels, rom-com movies, and fairytales, is the happy ending. There is enough strife in reality that I don’t require a large dose with my entertainment. Yes, there are instances when a good angst-ridden romance with broken heroes and damaged heroines is what I’m looking for. A lot of the time though I just want to read about two worthy people finding everlasting love despite obstacles thrown in their [...]

  • Jill James

    A Sweet retelling of a fairy tale. The characters leapt off the page.

  • Krystal

    When I saw the title, I was thinking it was going to be more a "rags to riches" kind of story than one that left me thinking it was more an attempt at giving the Cinderella story a regency twist. To begin with, I felt as though the author took the "Cinderella" vibe a little too far by giving Joanna the employer equivalent of a wicked stepmother and wicked step-sister. In fact the first time we meet the oldest daughter Frances, she is angry with Joanna for interrupting her tryst with someone (nev [...]

  • Laura

    A book I really enjoyed and would go back to reread at some point. I'm more interested in the author's future works than other books in the same series.This is one of those books I would recommend based on tropes and level of fluff desired, as opposed to a 'great to recommend for anyone' type. It's silly and melodramatic at times and a lot of back and forth between the H and h either being friends or romantically involved. It could get tiring but since I was engaged and enjoying myself, I liked [...]

    I received a complimentary download of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.It's just not summer unless I read a Harlequin romance and this one was a great read.

    3.0 starsThis book was very nice and entertaining in the beginning but the second half was way too long and unnecessarily complicated. One time the heroine thought that the hero doesn't love her, then he thought she wasn't feeling anything for him, then she thought it and he thought it and so it went, for pages and pages! And it alternated with them thinking that the other one had feelings. How can anyone think someones in love with them one moment and the next think the opposite? It was soooo a [...]

  • Maggie Hesseling

    A bit of an Oliver story in the sense that it's rags to riches. She's a governess that is sent to a neighbourhood to take care of some children but loses her position and finds family as well as love.The novel isn't all that deep, but it's an easy read. I enjoyed how her grandfather was pretending to be the local clergyman and chatting to her, that he was kind even though he had no idea who she was. But I found her character a little insipid and the man she falls in love with a little bland.

  • Deirdre

    While some of this was interesting, some was a bit predictable, more a 3.5 than 3 but not quite a 4.Joanna Radcliff was left at the door of a boarding school as a young infant and now she's about to leave and become a governess, but the family she's assigned to are terrible, but the place she is in will change her life, between a man who falls for her and someone who can tell her about her past, what choices she makes will change many lives.

    DNFing at 40% of the way through. I just didn't care about any of the characters.

    A fun regency historical treat of a romance. I really enjoyed the tension between the characters ranks and sense of duty to their families.
