ARC Review of The Governess CLub Louisa by Ellie Macdonald




I really enjoy Ellie's books, her characters are passionate, intelligent and not typical romance heros and heroines.  First of all the hero is bald and his name is Giant Johnny.  He is an ex-prize fighter who won a inn named The Beefy Buzzard in a fight.  The heroine Louisa arrives at the inn broke and running from a scandal in her past.  She talks him into letting her work there.  She is a strong character who is not the most likable heroine, but as you get to know her you realize she has survived on her own when most women of her time would not have.  They are not a typical romance novel couple but the story works mainly because of the way Ellie weaves the plot and the ending leaves you satisfied.  Her books are ones that you wish would never end.  A great ending to a great series.
