New Reviews

Certain authors have a confidence of voice that comes out in their writing, and I count Kate Noble among that number. In The Game and the Governess, she takes on what could have been an overly contrived setup, delivering both a comedy of manners and a touching love story.


A chance encounter splitting a cab leads throws Grace Song and Zach Camden into instant attraction, but perfectionist, buttoned-down Grace is leery of anything as unpredictable as emotion. Despite her misgivings, she follows up with Zach, who turns out to be an artist reeling from a tragic personal loss. Maybe this novella is too short to investigate these topics in depth, or maybe the treatment would have been shallow at any length, but this book substitutes chemistry and sex for relationship development and is, on the whole, too superficial.
