    Fan-freakin'-tastic

    I loved the first book in Ms. Knight-Catania's series. Becky Thorn was a minor character in that book, but and the heroine in More Than a Governess. And wow! I never expected her background to be what it was. I had to pick my jaw up off the ground.

    The hero - Stephen - a rough around the edges, returned war hero was very well-drawn. He was both complicated and endearing at the same time.

    I loved watching the two of them fall in love in this book. I cannot wait to read more fro this author!

    More then a Governess... Weatherby Series Book 2

    This book was just as good as the first book in this series! I really loved how "Becky" stood up not only for herself, but for everyone that she cares for. As most things go in a family, no matter what kind of family, the most important thing one can give to their family is love!!!
    The action part of this book was thrilling! I felt as though I was in a race to see what happened next and before I knew it the book was over. I'm really looking forward to reading the third book in this series.

    Very cute

    This is a wonderful story about unexpected love and also a little about raising children. I loved the little twists in the story as well as the romance. Over 600 pages. Would read again.

    Not as well Written as the first in the series

    This is Becky's story. Sorry there may be spoilers in this review.

    This book seemed very unrealistic. She becomes governess to a man who has guardianship over his niece and nephew. They all have some issues to work through. She quickly "fixes" the kids and Stephen changes as if overnight. Then someone from her past is invited to the house and turns out to be insane. How no one noticed prior to that he was crazy I don't know. It just seemed a little ridiculous and rushed. But I recommend the first story in this story.

    Not my style

    In my opinion this book has more lust than romance. I got tired of it quickly and didn't finish it.

    Very Good

    Very Good


    I enjoyed this story, having read the stories for the other characters without realizing they were a series. The story line was easy to follow, what I found to believe is that even after Stephen asked her to marry him she didn't tell him about her past. How is their marriage legal when she used false name? I would think it was not. I never understood this. The other was the housekeeper, she left suddenly so I would assume she was involved and if so why. Stephen was a total jerk, again it was unbelievable that a grown man of thirty something couldn't come to realize he should make his wife until Eastleigh had a conversation with him. All in all the story held my interest.

    Good but predictable read.

    This story has much potential but the character development was a little lacking. I enjoyed the fact that the story doesn't end at the "they got married and lived happily ever after" point.

    Jerrica Knight-Catania’s More than a Governess does a nice

    Jerrica Knight-Catania’s More than a Governess does a nice job of combining historical romance with suspenseful mystery. The writing shines in the dialog, and the large numbers of characters are easily kept apart with quick hints of background and interrelationships. There’s something inherently satisfying about traffic jams of “stalled wagons and meandering barouches” slowing the journey from London’s city to countryside, and the author portrays town and people very realistically with just the right amount of modern independence underlying traditional demands. Two troubled but delightful children need a firm hand and loving heart. One bitter bachelor needs a reason to kindle hope. And a frightened but deeply resourceful young woman needs protection from her past.

    Becky Thorn makes a pleasing protagonist, with mystery in her past and determination in her present. The children are wonderful, and Viscount Hasting’s gradually descent (or should that be ascent) into love is convincingly beset by misunderstandings. The ghost in Becky’s past rears its head at vital moments, keeping the pages turning and providing impetus to drive the growing romance. Bedroom scenes are more detailed than they were in my grandmother’s day, but not excessively so, and the result is a pleasing, intriguing and sometimes exciting adventure.

    I didn’t realize till I’d finished reading that this cast of characters might be seen elsewhere in other books of this series--I might look out for them. But the novel stands alone perfectly well and is an enjoyable quick read with great dialog, interesting background, and happy conclusion.



    Disclosure: I bought this book a while ago and took a while to get around to reading it.
