I had to convince myself to read this one as Louisa is the most annoying character in the series So of course it ends up being my favourite and I adore her now. So I ended up not disliking Louisa as much as I thought and in truth I can understand why she was the way she was even if I m a little astonished by some of it. Also I would forgive almost anyone if John told me too The big galoot sigh Oh Louisa I remarked in the last novel, Sara , that I wasn t looking forward to Louisa s novella because she was so blunt almost cruel towards Sara In truth I did want to know why Louisa was so straight forward about most things, but the very picture of evasive with her own life Seriously look up evasive in a Dictionary, you ll see almost any conversation Louisa has with John in this book for certain And while her tongue is just as sharp here as it was in Sara s story, its helpful to read the why of it.

Louisa has me a bit torn For the first 80% of the book, I didn t like her I understood that her past made her wary of men, but I didn t think that excused how rude she could be, to everyone And, heaven forbid she ask for forgiveness when she realized that what she said had been unnecessarily harsh Then, there s the fact that she simply left her friends, without giving them any indication that she was okay and for some reason, that never struck her as needlessly cruel And, finally, it irritated me that she continually judged John by the same scale that she had assigned to the man that had turned her bitter, even though he had proved early on that he was a kind, honorable man It made it seem like he ✓ Louisa (The Governess Club, #4) ✓ Review copy by Edelweiss. Umm I was really hoping that I would like Louisa by the end of this story but that just didn t happen I understood why she ran away from her family and why she was so prickly However, she was a little too bitchy for my taste Comparatively John was a complete sweetheart He was a really good man and he was very considerate of Louisa Something else that bothered me was a minor plot line in the epilogue It was never resolved This is book four in the Governess Club series and second full length novel in it Like the previous story, I found this one well written and plotted and the characters in it were the ones that intrigued the most How often do you have a bold headed hero Not that often, and if I m honest, I can t name one As for our heroine, I found her rude, but still intriguing t took me most of the book to warm up to her and even when I got to know her better, I thought she was a bit too real. I think this author will grow on me as I continue to read her stories I hope you give her a try.

Louisa on the other hand was rude and downright hateful for most of the book John could have done much better than her I couldn t understand why her friends were looking for her when she was so nasty to them She got better at the end of the book but I still didn t like her much She came across and selfish and uncaring about anything that didn t directly affect her.
