The School Mistress by Tess Thompson Book Summary

An untested teacher. A wealthy benefactor. When their attraction becomes undeniable, will they open their hearts to each other?
Colorado, 1910. Quinn Cooper can’t help feeling uneasy. But securing a job as a schoolmarm in a tiny frontier town was the only way to save her family from starvation back in Boston. And her nerves aren’t eased by a stray gunshot that spooks the sleigh horses, casting her into the snow… until she’s rescued by a handsome stranger.
Lord Alexander Barnes knows better than to believe any pretty young woman would willingly become a mother to five children. But the lonely widower finds himself charmed by the lovely newcomer and her easy rapport with his offspring. And after his disgruntled nanny quits, his heart melts at the sight of her joyfully taking over the role.
Determined to prove herself in the schoolhouse and as a governess, Quinn fears her near-poverty will prevent any possible courtship with the affluent Englishman. And between their age difference and prejudicial violence in the town, Lord Barnes is certain this second chance at happiness just cannot be.
Will their love go unspoken, or will their persistence reward them with a lasting passion?
The School Mistress is the delightful first book in the Emerson Pass Historicals sweet romance series. If you like gallant nobles, resilient heroines, and hints of mystery, then you’ll adore Tess Thompson’s Edwardian adventure in the Old West.

The School MistressA lovely story. I loved the characters and their interactions. And, of course, a happily-ever-after!.Score: 5/5

Style is a little strangeThe story is fine and predictable but since most of the book is written as if the person is thinking instead of speaking to someone is a little strange. I like more back and forth between main characters. I almost didn’t read the whole book because of this. It just seems cold and analytical in style..Score: 2/5

The School Mistress of Emerson PassWith the world full of uncertainty and my front line job full of stress. It was extremely difficult to calm myself to read. Once I finally started the book I could not stop. I am so glad I had this little bit of heaven and wonderful distraction. This story is an historical romance about a young school teacher, Miss Quinn Cooper, who must leave Boston for a new job in Colorado. She left her widow mother and younger sister behind because she is the one who must support all of them. She arrives in a snow storm and in an unexpected way comes to her new employer widower Lord Barnes. He certainly did not expect the young Miss Cooper. He was waiting on the old spinster teacher to arrive to teach his children. What a wonderful twist Lord Barnes finds Miss Cooper enchanting. He had planned on the old teacher to stay at the town boarding house. But he had to make changes quickly for her safety. Miss Cooper would stay in his estate that he shared with his five children. He had plenty of room and house staff and it would not be any inconvenience. The children adored Miss Cooper and was sure she would be the perfect match for their father. The town a few miles from the estate is a mining town that is in its early stages of development. The town characters are easy to love and they face many challenges. This story is a page turner full of mystery, drama, compassion and romance. You definitely escape from the present world while reading this story and I am anxiously waiting for the next book in this series. I received an ARC of this book at my own request from the author. All opinions expressed are my own..Score: 5/5
