    1. In the second of the Governess Club, we meet up with Bonnie whose stuck in between a rock and a hard place. She's the only thing her students who are in her care Henry and Arthur have after the sudden death of their parents.Something evil is looming over the estate and things seem to come to ahead when the boys guardian finally arrive - Sir Stephen Montgomery. Stephen and Boonie may butt heads but it's up to these two to keep the boys out of danger that seems to be drawing closer. There was a fe [...]

    2. This novella was short and sweet but not terribly engaging. Bonnie's mother had been a governess who became a rich man's mistress; she raised her daughter to be a governess. Thus, I found it incredible that Bonnie would so easily fall into bed with Sir Stephen. There was a mystery, but it wasn't much of one. Sir Stephen is no Sherlock; he doesn't even ask who would inherit the title if the new young viscount dies. Ellie Macdonald is a competent writer, but the plot had inconsistencies. For examp [...]

    3. I'm not sure why both the first and second story in this series were presented to us as short novellas. I think if they were combined, it would have been a better presentation.In any case, the second story was good, but it lacked focus on the main characters, yet I still found it interesting and entertaining. I also thought the plot intriguing, and the fast pace contributed to my over all enjoyment.Since this author is new to me and so far I've only experienced her voice in only short stories, I [...]

    9. This is the second book of the series, and I have enjoyed this seriess has been jolly good fun. I adore governess romances, and this one was quite entertaining and had a aspect of mystery mixed in with the story that added a sense of intrigue and suspense.

Stephen was the father's best friend, and is now guardian over two boys and learning abo [...]

    10. A lovely continuation of The Governess Club series. Bonnie was a wonderful historical romance novella. Bonnie was a lovely heroine. I really liked how dedicated she was to her charges (and those two little boys were adorable). Her loyalty to them and her determination to take care of and protect them made her a likable character. She was great. I really liked her.Stephen was also wonderful. He was really sweet. Like Bonnie, he's very loyal. He was a great hero and I really liked him.The plot was [...]

    11. These MCs are TSTL. What kind of idiot takes food from a known poisoner? One that deserves exactly what they got.This story felt incredibly rushed. And the fact that the bad guy was so bloody obvious from the get-go means you spend most of the story convinced of the MCs idiocy.1.5 stars

    12. Very touching love story & salt&pepper: an atrocious murder case to solve. Bonnie and her aristocratic ”Clyde” became detectives. A lot of emotions to feel and action to chill My only minus to this book: not as sexy as Maiden Lane or Pennyroyal Green. I look forward to read the next 2 stories.

    13. BLOG: adictaxictoxicoMi calificación es 3.5Me gusto el libro pero le falto algo. ademas el culpable de esos asesinatos fue muy fácil de descubrir---!

    14. Bonnie is a part of Ellie Macdonald's series The Governess Club, but it can stand alone very well. That's the good news. The bad news is that, while the author still shows that she can deliver some very competent writing, the story is not very interesting to read.Bonnie Hodges is a governess. Her mother was a governess who became her employer's mistress, and that didn't turn out so hot. Bonnie, therefore, has some issues about fraternizing with the boss, so this means she takes oh, 10 pages long [...]

    15. Previously reviewed on The Good, The Bad, & The Unread:I was a little unsure what I was going to get with this book. The first book in the series had a cute premise, but far too many anachronisms and errors (especially with regard to titles and their inheritance) for me to be entirely happy with it. This book, I’m pleased to report, does far better on the latter score other than one brief dip into 20th/21st Century pop-psychology and a few situations where I couldn’t quite believe the he [...]

    20. The second in this fun novella series with engaging women who want more out of life than working as governesses. This second book about Bonnie is a wonderful addition.

    21. “Bonnie” is book number two in The Governess Club series by Ellie Macdonald, her first published work. I liked this novel because it kept my interest until the very end.

    22. THE GOVERNESS CLUB: BONNIE by Ellie MacDonald is an exciting Regency Historical Romance. #2 in "The Governess Club" series, but can be read as a stand alone. See, "The Governess Club: Claire". Another hit for this talented author whose writing is only improving with each title.

    25. The Governess Club: Bonnie is the second novella in The Governess Club series by Ms. MacDonald. Though Claire and Jacob from The Governess Club: Claire do make a short appearance, it's not necessary to have read any other novellas in the series. Bonnie has delayed her arrival to join her friends, fellow governesses, when tragedy strikes the family who employs her. She feels guilt about leaving her young charges, so she decides to stay and see what will happen with their guardian arrives. Bonnie [...]

    26. The second installment of The Governesses Club was just as entertaining as the first, with a bit of a mystery to it. I adored Sir Stephen, especially when he would get upset or emotional and his accent would thicken and I could just imagine the Scottish BrogueghI loved Arthur and Henry, and the close relationship they shared with Bonnie after their trauma,and that last intense scene had me chewing my nails. The story was well written, the language was beautiful, and the romance was sigh worthyFa [...]

    27. As soon as I finished Claire's story I started on Bonnie's, I'm impatient. I liked the kids in this book. Henry and Arthur were the cutest little boys, they had to suffer a tragedy and Bonnie stuck by them. They were attached to her understandably but they also grew to love her. Bonnie was funny at inappropriate times so naturally she was awesome!! I liked the fact that Stephen was a complete mystery before he arrived as the guardian. It felt like I was getting to know the character as the rest [...]

    28. Lots of copyediting/editing errors, but if you can get past those, it's a very good story with likeable characters. There's an attempt at mystery, but there are so few available suspects that the villain is screamingly obvious. It doesn't really matter though - this is meant to be a short story romance, and as that it succeeds well.Full review: jennoklikes/post/980998

    29. A nice novella. It had an interesting, if not predictable little murder mystery. Cute little boys, and one hell of a governess. Part epistolry, the switch between leetters and story was a nice change of pace. I gelt as if something was missing some of the time, though- some sprt of spark.

    30. As this is the second book in the series, I would not normally write a review. But, I loved this book. It kept me guessing almost until the very end, which is unusual for me. I can't wait for the next book to be published.
