Jonathan and Amy was a wonderful novella. We first met these two in Burrowes's book "Lady Eve's Indiscretion" and I was so happy that they got their own story. This story moved at a good pace for a novella and we were given enough background information on the main characters to not feel lost as to what was going on and there was plenty of insight into their thoughts and feelings. We even get to see Lady Eve and Deene in this and as they are some of my favorite characters it was a great treat. There are some very poignant moments in this story as well as a few scenes that gave me a big smile and even a couple giggles. While novellas are not always my favorite thing to read this one delivers a truly lovely story in true Grace Burrowes style.

This is one of my favorite authors, and I loved these characters from the prior book about Eve and Deene. I really enjoyed this novella. Some novellas feel too short and superficial, but this one didnt. Between their story starting in an earlier book and the author packing a lot of storyline in tbis book, it felt like a longer book. Very likable characters, good chemistry, good storyline, really enjoyed it. Cant wait for the next Grace Burrowes book!

I am a huge fan of Grace Burrowes--if she writes it, I read it. If you're the same kind of fan, you'll enjoy this short but sweet love story. Just right for a rainy afternoon. Enjoy!

Book #8.6 in the Windham family series by Grace Burrowes, this is a novella. While I have read all of Burrowes’ Windham series, I don’t recall mention of Jonathan Dolan. He is brother-in-law to Deene from Lady Eve’s Indiscretion. Amy Ingraham is a lady turned governess due to an indiscretion in her past who, while in the employ of Jonathan Dolan, falls in love with him. She has crushed on him from afar, admiring his looks, his love for his daughter, Georgina, as well as his strong and commanding personality. He has always been a fair employer so, when he asks for her assistance in becoming more gentlemanlike in manner and behavior before a visit to his estranged brother-in-law’s estate, she complies. He has ulterior motives to woo the lady. Amy’s manner is rather school marm-ish and I found their relationship humorously formal. She calls him “Mr. Dolan” despite his repeated requests to call him Jonathan. Jonathan is new to Polite Society so he’s a little rough around the edges; this doesn’t seem to bother Amy overmuch as she has lived on the fringes for years. She sees his love for his daughter and that makes him a good man to her. There is a humorous little side plot involving Amy’s estranged and foppish cousin, Nigel, and his belief of a betrothal with Amy. Nigel merely wants her inheritance to fund his gambling debts and his mistress’ expensive tastes, and to please his dear Mama. One of my favorite things about Burrowes’ writing (which I have mentioned before in my reviews) is her attention to the details. These make me feel comfortable in her world. "Where his hand rested on her back, he felt the slight wrinkle of a chemise and stays beneath the fabric of her dress. When he drew her into his arms, the aroma of lemon verbena mingled with laundry starch and something else—a faint trace of ink, perhaps?—to bring the schoolroom to mind."  Amy’s twin spinster sisters, Hecate and Drusilla, are very charming and funny in their eccentric way. Their conversation after Nigel visits them made me laugh out loud. ”’…she has suffered at the hands of the Witless Gender.’” I found it a little surprising that Amy had no knowledge of her grandfather’s inheritance but then, as now, many women choose to be in the dark regarding their finances. Worth Kettering makes an appearance here toward the end of the novella, perfect timing so I can see how he fits into Burrowes’ fabulous Lonely Lords series. This is a nice, light novella, a lovely little treat for all fans of good writing.
