The Governess Club: Claire by Ellie Macdonald

The Governess Club: Claire (The Governess Club, #1)The Governess Club: Claire by Ellie Macdonald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first in the The Goveress Club series, Clarie kicks it off with a sweet romance with a governess Claire Bannister trying to hold on to parts of her past while a romance starts to bloom between her and the mysterious new tutor Jacob Knightly whose a lord in hiding. Between romance,crazy kids, secrets and some nice toast this had a little bit of everything to make it such an enjoyable read.

Being a novella Macdonald did an excellent job building the relationship between Claire and Jacob quickly while the reader notices the change both have in each other lives and outlook. I was very much convinced that they both cared and loved each other with a nice added build up of sexual tension and a great love scene that flowed with the story and didn't hinder it or make it just about lust but about love!

I did feel the ending did lack somewhat of a punch when the truth of who Jacob is came out. The period of separation wasn't dragged on but I would have liked it out all together as I felt it didn't added any needed drama to an already fun story.

This debut kicked off wonderfully as am looking forward to more from this series and author!
