❄ [KINDLE] ✽ The Governess and Mr. Granville (The Parsons Daughters, #2) By Abby Gaines ➝ – Golanvideoagency.info

The Governess and Mr Granville was a fun, good, clean and inspirational regency romance that I enjoyed very much Serena was a spirited and instantly likable character The banter between Dominic and Serena was very entertaining There were many moments during this book where I found myself laughing out loud This was a book that made me feel good and left me with a smile on my face I highly recommend The Governess and Mr Granville to anyone looking for an enjoyable historical romance. Lovely story At first I was hesitant to read it when I saw that the hero had 5 kids I personally prefer it when a romance is focused on the hero heroine However, my mom recommended it and I enjoyed the first one in the series, so I took a chance Gaines did a fabulous job keeping the focus on the couple Stern and stuffy Dominic s reaction to free spirited, big hearted Serena kept me entertained throughout And I came to care about the secondary characters, as well Stayed up late to finish this one Looking forward to the next installment 3.5 starsThe feeling of doubt as to who will end up with who well, we all would know which is which, but maybe a little suspense could flavour up the story but as the title has given us the answer even before we read the first sentence, there you have it Quite an entertaining story, but the feel of contemporary keep surfacing now and then, especially the using of first name basis between the governess and the employer. Dominic dan Serena ini awalnya kelihatannya ceritanya bakalan lebih seru drpd buku yg pertama Ternyata malah lebih mengecewakan, apalagi endingnya.Dengan tema persilangan antara Mary Poppins dan Emma by Jane Austen, kita dibawa ke suasana Regency dimana Serena bekerja sbg governess lima anak kecil dari seorang duda tampan dan kaya, Dominic Serena ini berkepribadian bak Julie Andrews di The Sound of Music, selalu ceria, sangat memahami anak anak, dan jatuh cinta pada majikannya yg kaku ini.Serena sempat nyaris diberhentikan sbg governess sblm naik pangkat menjadi pendamping bagi Marianne adik Dominic yg memiliki masalah rendah diri akut, spinster yg gampang merona, dan belakangan kepincut dgn tetangganya, si pewaris baru.Dominic menyadari dirinya tidak bisa mengandalkan adik perempuannya sbg pendamping anak anaknya pada saat debut Jadi dia mengalah utk mencari istri baru walaupun sangat enggan, mengingat dia hanya mencintai almarhumah istrinya.Jadilah cerita berputar putar disana, hingga kedatangan Alistair Givens, tunangan diam diam Serena yg dikira sudah mati dlm perang, ternyata masih segar bugar dan menyatakan masih mencintai Serena Dominic sendiri sudah melamar Hester, teman baik almarhumah istrinya.Serena dan Dominic ini menderita fall out of love syndrome Mereka membuat pihak lain menderita akibat keputusan gegabah mereka yg plin plan Dan saya GAK SUKA dengan mereka.Ditambah lagi krn novel ini clean romance yg christianity, makin membuat saya mual dgn kemunafikan yg ditampilkan novel ini, krn tabrakan antara karakter kristiani yg puritan itu gak sesuai dgn anakronistis Contohnya, Serena yg anak pendeta, digambarkan taat pada ayat ayat alkitab, tetapi kenapa dia mau saja bertunangan diam diam dgn Alastair di usia 16 thn Dan masih banyak contoh yg lain yg membuat saya malah jadi sebel, apalagi yg menjelang ending Yasudlah, ini terakhir kali baca clean romance yg malah bikin saya migren. Dominic Granville Needs A Wife Whether He Wants One Or Not And Governess Serena Somerton Intends To Find One For Him A Marriage Of Convenience Would Provide The Wealthy Widower S Five Children With A Mother S Tender Care And Yet None Of Dominic S Prospective Brides Can Meet Serena S Increasingly High StandardsUnconventional, Certainly Outspoken, To Be Sure Even So, Miss Somerton S Quirks Can T Curb Dominic S Growing Interest In The Spirited Young Woman After His Wife S Death, Dominic Was Sure He Couldn T Love Again But Faced With The Prospect Of Losing Serena To Another, One Fact Becomes Clear His Imperfect Governess Could Be His Ideal Wife So sweet Suka dengan interaksi seluruh tokoh dalam cerita ini Dominick, Serena, adik beserta ke 5 anak Dominick, plus tokoh2 lainnya Plot sederhana tapi menyentuh Karakter setiap tokoh seolah nyata Penulisnya keren ni, pandai mengaduk2 perasaan pembaca Tanpa adegan roman berlebihan, kisah Dominick mencari istri atas usulan Serena, terasa pas di hati Ada momen absurd klo boleh dibilang seperti itu terjadi di antara mereka, yakni saat Dominick berniat pedekate dgn wanita2 pilihannya, Serena malah berusaha menggagalkan usaha tersebut sekuat tenaga Padahal Serena yg mengusulkan Dominick utk menikah lagi demi keseimbangan keluarga dan kondisi psikis ke 5 anaknya Perbedaan prinsip antara Dominick dan Serena juga turut menambah gregetan cerita ini Jika Dominick ingin menikah lagi dengan alasan menikah demi kemudahan , itu berbanding terbalik dengan Serena yg lebih mengutamakan cinta Nah, dari prinsip aja udh beda, bisa ketebak dong gimana gregetannya cerita ini Momen mengharu biru tentunya saat melibatkan Thomas Hetty Charlotte William Louisa Mereka anak2 Dominick yg terlupakan oleh Dominick sendiri Ketiadaan figur ibu membuat mereka sedikit susah diatur Untung ada Serena, governes yg luar biasa dan tak lazim meski begitu die ternyata alim juga Setiap perbuatan selalu diiringi firman Tuhan Adegan paling berkesan itu saat anak2 menyatakan pendapatnya tentang siapa sosok yg pantas menjadi ibu baru mereka plus saat mereka mengungkapkan alasan kenapa Serena harus tinggal Manis bangeet Serena gadis yang menyenangkan, sekaligus blak blakan Setelah mengetahui bahwa adiknya menikah dengan seorang Earl, dia tidak bisa lagi menjadi governess di rumah keluarga Granville Oleh karena itu, Dominic memintanya menjadi pendamping adiknya, khususnya karena dia akan mengadakan pesta jamuan untuk mencari seorang istri.Ide pencarian istri ini awalnya datang dar Serena, yang menginginkan hal terbaik bagi kelima anak Dominic yang masih kecil Karenanya Serena merasa perlu ikut campur dalam menentukan kriteria istri untuk Dominic Ada beberapa kejadian lucu, termasuk ketika anak anak Dominic menyanyi untuk menghibur tamu Bukannya terhibur, para tamu malah menunjukkan tampang horor karena nyanyian anak anak Dominic jauh dari merdu.Selain Dominic Serena, kisah Marianne Bemmerton juga layak untuk diikuti Marianne memiliki kekurangan wajah yang selalu merona membuatnya menutup diri karena tidak ingin lebih dipermalukan oleh orang lain Tapi kehadiran Bemmerton membuatnya bisa mengatasi ketakutannya Masih bertemakan kristiani, novel ini lebih mengutamakan bagaimana seorang Serena menghadapi konfliknya tanpa mengabaikan kisah romantisnya Cocok untuk kemu penyuka hisrom tapi nggak pengen baca yang vulgar. The Governess and Mr Granville The Parson s Daughters Book 2 of 2 Abby Gaines o.Romantic and Fun in a historical setting o I don t normally purchase Harlequin novels, but this one was available from my favorite Christian retailer, and the story line sounded interesting, plus the price was good Turns out, this is a really fun book, filled with faith, tension, misunderstandings, social class structure, romance, judgment, forgiveness, 5 wonderful children, and Regency era settings Definitely worth the read, if you can get over having your left margin crammed into the binding so you really have to spread your book open, and some lack of editing issues Opening Scripture Forget the former things do not dwell on the past See I am doing a new thing Isaiah 43 18 19Leicestershire, England, 1816 Serene Somerton is the recent governess on a mission to help a family dealing with the loss of wife and mother about 4 years prior She is unconventional and used to growing up in a family where spirited debates are the norm Dominic Granville is reserved, professional a gentleman Miss Somerton s presence seems to upset his routines almost daily, and he finds himself having to reprimand her frequently However, his sister Marianne hired the most recent governess following a long line of unsuitable candidates who have come and gone through Woodbridge Hall, and she seems to like her Marianne has an unfortunate affliction that causes constant reddening of her face in various degrees maybe what we would call rosacea today , which is exacerbated when she interacts with new people or exerts herself With 5 children in the mix there is plenty of mischief, unusual problems, tenderness and even a scene similar to The Sound of Music you can google the song Scarborough Fair Celtic Woman for a lovely rendition if you wish I enjoyed the bantering between the 2 main characters, and feel the author has a good handle on blending humor and tenderness into the story However, there are a few times when the point of view changes mid page and I found myself saying, huh wait, who s speaking thinking now But, I quickly got back to enjoying the story.Sadly, there are only 2 books in the series, and after that the author goes on to write modern fiction from what I can find on harlequin dot com, which is not my thing.I give this book 4 out 5 stars for the technical issues previously mentioned.I purchased this copy My opinion is my own 2012 Harlequin Love Inspired Books282 pagesRead 2 2324 15Reviewed 2 25 15 At first, I didn t think I would like this one The heroine, Serena, just rubbed me the wrong way I thought she was a bit self righteous and definitely a busybody However, somewhere along the way her personality calmed down and I ended up really liking the story There was a bit of preaching in the beginning as well, but that also became a lot subtle as the story progressed, so the second half was definitely better for me I liked our hero, Dominic the entire time He probably is the reason I kept reading I actually liked the two together quite a bit they have some nice moments together and had good chemistry I am really enjoying this series and am looking forward to reading from Ms Gaines If you like regency stories then I recommend this one. Cute and fun reading Quite short as I finished it in one day 5 Granville children is a delight The Governess and Mr. Granville (The Parsons Daughters, #2)
