A Laird for the Governess - Catherine Tinley

 *This review is part of a blog tour hosted by Rachel's Random Resources. The book was kindly gifted to me in exchange for an honest review. As always, all thoughts and feelings are my own.*


Genre: Historical Romance

Pages: 274

Rating: ☆☆☆☆/5


Synopsis: A penniless governess

And the dour Laird of Ardmore

Lydia Farnham must travel to a remote Scottish island to work for widower Alasdair MacDonald, who doesn’t trust her or her unconventional teaching methods! Yet as his daughter flourishes, so, too, does the intense connection between Lydia and Alasdair. Only she should know better than to fall for the handsome laird when it could leave her without a job, or a home…


My Thoughts: Firstly, I would like to thank Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources for a space on this blog tour and a copy of the book for me to review. It looks as though this book is the first in a new series, which is exciting. Many of the books I've read recently have been mid-series so it's been nice to have a book and start from the beginning of the timeline!

My favourite kind of book are when there isn't something huge and dramatic that happens, but instead one that is essentially the storyline of someone's life. The storyline of this book showed the good and the bad of everyday living for Lydia and Alasdair. I'll be honest, I don't think the synopsis of the book does it the justice that it deserves. For those who don't know what a laird is (I had to Google it myself), it is a Scottish term for a person who owns a large estate.

The storyline had a great romance between the pair and there were many really fantastic and sweet moments throughout. The book is very clean, so suitable for someone who isn't into romance that goes in to too much detail!

All in all, this was another great historical romance that I've read this year!
