The Governess Club: Louisa by Ellie Macdonald Review




Louisa Brockhurst is on the run—from her friends, from her family, even from her dream of independence through the Governess Club. But sometimes it's easier for her to hide from those she loves in order to escape the secrets of her past.

Handsome but menacing John Taylor is a prizefighter-turned-innkeeper who is trying to make his way in society. When Louisa shows up at his doorstep, he's quick to accept her offer to help—at a price. He knows that she's hiding something, and he can't help his protective instincts toward the beautiful woman.

Their attraction grows, but will headstrong, fiery Louisa ever trust the surprisingly kind John enough to tell him the dangerous secrets from her past that keep her running? Or will the power of her feelings scare her into running yet again?



I have read all of the Governesses books and so far Louisa’s story is my favorite of all the Governess books. I have come to feel like they are a part of me! maybe it’s because I am a Nanny, maybe it’s because I am British, but I think it’s really because this series is so wonderfully written and that it really does just blows me over with such wonderful story lines that I fall in love a little with each book.

But let’s get back to Louisa’s story. The book is well written and flows seamlessly; there were no holes in the plot that I caught. Louisa is always been my favorite character and because she is strong and determined. Louisa is also hiding a secret that, if discovered, could destroy her, so she acts before she could be discovered and stows away in the middle of the night and ends up at an inn.

John Taylor is a tough ex-fighter who owns an inn and life seems simple…that is until Louisa turns and destroys all his calm. As their attraction starts to grow, Louisa becomes more nervous about her past rearing its ugly head, until one day it does.

You will find out that that John has some secrets, but not as many as Louisa’s and when her secrets are revealed, be prepared to be blown away!

Again I cannot even tell you how much I LOVE THIS STORY! And for that reason I give Louise 10 out of 10.
