It Started with a Scandal review

I’ve just finished It Started with a Scandal by Julie Anne Long. What a sweet book! Elise and Phillippe have each been forced to leave home but for very different reasons. Because of her change in “circumstances,” she has taken a tumble down the social ladder and must assume the position of housekeeper to a dislocated prince of the House of Bourbon. The staff she inherits wouldn’t last an hour at Downton Abbey. But Elise has no alternative but to do whatever it takes to retain her position. Fortunately, the talents she honed teaching elementary school children work equally well on this crew. Phillippe is every bit as challenging as his employees. He’s recuperating from severe injuries and prone to throwing breakables in frustration. The repartee these two exchange is witty and charming. The romance unfolds as they recognize they are kindred spirits. Elise is a wonderful heroine-warm and loving…
