Mostly funny with poignant bits

I think Tessa Dare is becoming more witty with each book. ‘Governess Game’ so much fun. There are great characters. The seven year old girl whose doll expires daily from various diseases ; her ten year old sister who trusts no one, while issuing cynical one liners; and heroine Alexandra, who crushes on a rake who flirts with her in a bookshop.
Bringing them all together is a ducal heir who hates himself for inheriting over his dead cousin. He hires Alexandra as a governess for his two wards. Then fun, desire and chaos follow. I loved this slightly less than the wonderful “Duchess Deal”, the first in this series. But it’s still a great read with laughs galore and a few tears as well. Highly recommended.
