Summary

Gothic romance with a twist.

Elements of The Sound of Music, The Enchanted Garden, Jane Eyre, and "true" ghost hunting shows make this story feel familiar. Gay love makes it unique.

Seeing an ad for a position at a Yorkshire estate, typesetter Graham Cowrie decides to make an upward career move by passing himself off as a tutor. How hard can it be to teach a few subjects to a pair of nine-year-old boys? But on his arrival at the ancient house, he finds the staff creepy, the twins odd, and the widowed master temporarily absent.

His first meeting with brooding, stern, but oh-so-attractive Sir Richard doesn't go well, but with no other prospects vying for the teaching position, Graham manages to keep it. His mission soon becomes clear: break down the walls of reserve both father and sons have erected, and attempt to bridge the gap between them.

But strange sounds, sights, and experiences keep Graham on edge until he finally admits the Hall is haunted by two entities with very different agendas. Graham works to appease one and combat the other, while protecting the broken family he's grown to care for.

THE TUTOR IS REALLY CUTE

I mean is a really cute story...☺️ I was very impressed- at first- because there seemed to be so much more to the story than has generally been my experience with this particular genre, where the sexual is the main thrust (so to speak!). But even here, I felt that the sex scenes were WAY too overdone for my taste. TOO graphic, and TOO much. I am not a prude and am not offended by sex scenes, but so much of contemporary writing these days overdoes it to the point where it is no longer titillating but becomes just BORING, BORING, BORING. Also, it seemed a little preachy to me with its politically correct message.

This is why I only gave it three stars. However, there were definitely redeeming factors to this audiobook: I enjoyed listening to the narrator who was quite good. And the story otherwise was pretty good, especially with the young twins.

A thoroughly enjoyable Gothic tale

This lovely story reminded me why I fell in love with Gothic romance way back when I was a teenager in high school. Granted that was in a different lifetime, but the Gothic romance is still wonderful. We have the unique twist of the "governess" who has fallen on hard times instead being a tutor who fudged on his resume to get the job. But is didn't seem to matter. There was still the poor neglected children who need a firm, but loving hand. The bitterly unhappy "Master" of the manor who glowers and growls and also needs a firm, but loving hand. Things that go bump in the night. Let us not forget the "ghost" in the tower. All the elements of a old fashion Gothic novel are here, and put together very well. A thoroughly enjoyable Gothic tale that any fan of the genre would enjoy.

Narrator not good

I had to DNF the audible the narrator just didn’t match the story, he sounds like he should narrate history and biographies.

as it said gothic with a twist indeed.

Very intriguing captivating and suspenseful. I do recommend as a favorable change to the old fashion gothic romance and it is a good romance all the same.
