The Cinderella Governess

The Cinderella Governess
Georgie Lee
Joanna has no idea who her family is, or where she came from. She appeared on the steps of a ladies finishing school when she was a baby with only her name pinned to her clothing. Now, as a young lady, her deepest dream is to be part of a family. She hopes that being a governess will lead her in that direction. But the family she is with is not her idea of a good family. And what is she to do when she falls in love with Luke, someone way beyond her station.

This was a regency Cinderella story of sorts. It involves several families and doesn't exactly follow the fairy tale, but elements of it are there. It's sweet, romantic, and has a few tiny suspenseful moments. The chemistry between the two main characters fit well with the story and made the romance believable. There are some bedroom scenes so I wouldn't classify this as a clean romance. The author did a great job of showing the scenery and pulling the reader in. She also created some hints as to the other books in the series, making me curious about Joanna's other friends. Overall, this was a well written story that had all of the classic elements of a regency romance and I enjoyed it.

I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
