Book Review: The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen

Book Description:
Believing herself guilty of a crime, Olivia Keene flees her home, eventually stumbling upon a grand estate where an elaborate celebration is in progress. But all is not as joyous as it seems. Lord Bradley has just learned a terrible secret, which, if exposed, will change his life forever. When he glimpses a figure on the grounds, he fears a spy or thief has overheard his devastating news. He is stunned to discover the intruder is a scrap of a woman with her throat badly injured. Fearing she will spread his secret, he gives the girl a post and confines her to his estate. As Olivia and Lord Bradley's secrets catch up with them, will their hidden pasts ruin their hope of finding love?

My thoughts:
I was excited to read The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen, since I have enjoyed her previous books. The Silent Governess was an enjoyable and and satisfactory read. There were several mysteries throught out the plot of the book, though predictable, made the story fun. Julie Klassen's previous books, Lady of Milkweed Manor (my favorite) and The Apothecary's Daughter are also worth checking out.
