book and thinking random thoughtsWhen he had explained why investors who wanted low risk and moderate returns should put their capital into national debt shares, Daisy had interrupted him by asking, Father, wouldn t it be wonderful if hummingbirds had tea parties and we were small enough to be invitedMatthew on the other hand is dependable with two feet firmly on the ground and pockets full of solutions to various problems He has been in love with Daisy for years, but a secret in his past has made him keep his distance and now when they are thrust together again he is trying very hard to remember how to not let her get under his skinShe was the most provoking, beguiling woman he had ever met Thunderstorms and rainbows wrapped together in a convenient pocket sized parcel Daisy s father has finally set down the law, Daisy will need to either find a husband in the next few months or.she will have to marry Matthew While Daisy s father is trying to push them together her sister is completely against the idea of Daisy marrying and American and leaving to live in America She has enlisted her dutiful husband to help dissuade Matthew from pursuing DaisyI informed Mr Swift quite sternly that I will not allow anyone to make Daisy unhappy And I demanded that he give me his word not to marry her Oh, thank God, Lillian said with a sigh of relief He refused He what Her mouth fell open in astonishment But no one refuses you Apparently Mr Swift wasn t told about that, he said I think this was actually my favorite in the series In all the other Wallflower books the men were rakes and or very alpha But Matthew Swift is a different hero altogether He is a bit timid most of the time and in complete control of himself for the most part He wants the best possible life for Daisy even if he doesn t believe that he himself can give it to her so he is determined to help others see how very special she is Matthew is easily likable and anyone who can stand up to Westcliff wins some respect in my bookYou don t like Mr Swift anythan I do, she retorted No, Lillian said frankly But much as I hate to admit it, that puts us in a minority Swift is liked by everyone in the northern hemisphere, including Westcliff and his friends, my friends, the servants, the neighbors You are exaggerating children, animals and the higher order of plants, Lillian finished sardonically If root vegetables could talk, I ve no doubt they would say they like him, tooAlso I enjoyed that fact that Daisy has to beof the pursuer once she realizes that she maybe has some feelings for Matthew He is bound and determined not to bring her into the potential mess his life could become and she practically has to seduce him I really liked the change in romantic tactics in this book I loved the way Daisy handled him into her ruinatiuon There are some very tender moments also that I enjoyed and I really loved that when Matthew s past came to light the loyalty that was shown by all his friends There is still the humor and side banter of all the Wallflowers and their husbands and as all the circles have grown to include a fewcharacters I really like where everything ended up All and All I have had a really good time with this series and will probably try a fewbooks by LK 3.5 stars I ve been going through a massive reading reviewing slump lately I think this book was a massive victim of

have at happiness, so Matthew has decided to spare her the pain and embarrassment of his past that he knows will catch up with him eventually He does this by trying to push her away, insult her and finally, he attempts to fix her up with someone else, even though it tears his heart out to do so.Each book has its own memorable moments and things that made me laugh There were many such instances in this book, but the one that I still find myself giggling over was in regards to the lawn bowling game in which Daisy and Matthew found themselves opponents The game had been relatively civilized for a while, though it was a very short while Their teammates long forgotten in the heat of competition, Kleypas segues into the frenzied gameYears later it would still be called the most blood thirsty game of lawn bowling ever witnessed at Stony Cross The game was extended to 30 points, and then 50, and then Daisy lost count They fought over every inch of ground and every rule of play They mulled over each shot as if fates of nations depended on it And most of all, they devoted themselves to knocking each other s bowls into the ditch The game that followed was, for me, laugh out loud funny and will be one of my favorite moments from any book.As always, Lisa Kleypas gives us characters who arethan just words on the page They are people we care about, cheer for and sometimes even cry for Her stories are well thought out, and her writing style is easy and comfortable While describing the settings in splendid detail so much so that I was able to imagine myself right there in the midst of it all with very little effort, I never felt like there was a droning on of unimportant words meant simply to fill the page.Lisa Kleypas has quickly become one of my very favorite authors, and The Wallflower series will be added to my list of books to be read time and time again I ll just say I agree on everything the third time around I cried and laughed just as much as the first two reads.Updated review after second reread 3 27 13Oh my freaking god this book is so amazing This was the second time around, and if anything I loved itI truly love the Wallflower series and this book

second time around, and if anything I loved itI truly love the Wallflower series and this book is my favorite If I could only read one romance novel ever again, then I would pick this one I loved the writing, the humor, the plot, well everything If I could, I would have highlighted the whole book I love Daisy I see so much of myself in Daisy, and I would like to have her as my new BFF She was the most provoking, beguiling woman he had ever met Thunderstorms and rainbows wrapped together in a convenient pocket sized parcel Her father decides that she must marry before May, or he ll give her to Matthew Swift Daisy is enraged but when she actually meet Matthew sparks fly They are absolutely made for each other After all, every swift sailing ship needed an anchor And I totally adored Matthew and maybe that has something to do with the fact that he did remind me of someone very close to my own heart He is not as domineering as Hunt or Westcliff but he definitely hold his own and earn everyone s respect, except maybe Lillian sBut as much as I hate to admit it, that puts us in a minority Swift is liked by everyone in the northern hemisphere, including Westcliff and his friends, my friends, the servants, the neighbors, children, animals and higher order of plants, Lillian finished sardonically If root vegetables could talk, I ve no doubt they would say they like him, tooAnd if not the love story is enough, the book is set almost exclusively on Westcliff s estate We get to follow the other Wallflowers, and especially Lillian and Westcliff and the birth of their child They play a huge role in this one, but we also get to spend time with Annabelle, Evie and Simon Hunt It is a wonderful conclusion to a wonderful series But do yourself a favor and start from the beginning it is well worth it.I cried and in the end I was super giddy The best epilogue yet Nerd alert I also adored that this book deals with industrialism and the decline of aristocracy in England, and I really enjoyed all the conversations on public policy and social reformation And, there were so many amazing moments view spoiler The one where they watch the rain together after making love for the first time might have been the best ever swooning hide spoiler This fourth and last instalment is, on par with the first Secrets of a Summer Night, the one that I found less engaging in the series.A hero hiding his identity, pining after the heroine since she was fifteen, she who has never spared him a glance until they meet again in England years later where she suddenly notices him Not the best scenario to lure me in as far as my favourite tropes go, and I knew this from the start, but I really wanted to read the complete series so, armed with the best This fourth and last instalment is, on

a glance until they meet again in England years later where she suddenly notices him Not the best scenario to lure me in as far as my favourite tropes go, and I knew this from the start, but I really wanted to read the complete series so, armed with the best intentions, I gave it a chance anyway While Daisy and Matthew share some very cute moments, and Kleypas is always extremely good at conveying sensual chemistry, I couldn t help but being uninterested in their romance as a whole Daisy is presented as a dreamer, perennially with her nose tucked in a book, but she often appeared immature rather than merely sheltered to me And Matthew was a brooding hero wallowing too much in his woe is me secret lot, when instead his big revelation toward the end felt quite overplayed and farfetched to be convincingly moving, besides once again compressing all the drama in the very last chapters, thus following a pattern I ve already recognised in several other Kleypas s plots As usual the book was technically well written, with lively dialogues and a fine sense of time and place, and it was nice to see the previous heroes and ex wallflowers rooting or meddling in the case of Lillian, the heroine s sister for the couple.All in all a worthy last instalment to the series, but having enjoyed a strong book 2 It Happened One Autumn, and loved a fabulous book 3 Devil in Winter, it was quite hard for it to keep up Daisy Bowman, the last of the wallflowers left to marry, has had three season and has yet to find a man to marry So her father insists that she has two months to find a husband, or she will be marrying Matthew Swift From what she remembers of Matthew Swift is a cold man so much like her father, who is driven and intelligent, but when she meets him again she is stung by how much he has changed over the years No longer a bag of cabbage he is handsome, strong features and mesmerizing So with Daisy Bowman, the last of the wallflowers left to marry, has had three season and has yet to find a man to marry So her father insists that she has two months to find a husband, or she will be marrying Matthew Swift From what she remembers of Matthew Swift is a cold man so much like her father, who is driven and intelligent, but when she meets him again she is stung by how much he has changed over the years No longer a bag of cabbage he is handsome, strong features and mesmerizing So with the help of her brother n law and Evie s husband, they have selected some gentlemen eligible for her, to come to Westcliff s home in the country Matthew Swift exudes charm and sensual beauty that has every woman tittering in his favor However Daisy is insistent on trying to ignore Matthew, but as much as she tries, she finds herself feelingalive around Matthew than any other man His kisses waken up her senses, and she aches not only for his sensual touch but she also aches to know the man as well But Matthew is hiding something, something that haunts him and could destroy everything.Scandal In The Spring is the fourth in the Wallflower Series This is Daisy s story I find that whenever I read any books from this author, I just fall in love with the story and the characters, and the same is true for Scandal In Spring It was such a delight to read this one, and it has been some time since I have I loved both of these characters, as far as hero s go Matthew Swift is one of my favorites He is handsome, driven, passionate, and throughout the story we see Matthew come to life The interaction between Matthew and Daisy is witty, fun, and at times sensual and entertaining to the reader As far as love stories go this is a golden treasure, and one that will charm any reading with a romantic heart Scandal In Spring is definitely at the top of best romances Father, wouldn t it be wonderful if hummingbirds had tea parties and we were small enough to be invited DaisyA lovely romance between a whimsical dreamer and an ambitious, pragmatic businessman A wonderful story, a hint of mystery, touches of humour and love scenes mostly devoid of purple prose The best in the series.Steam 2.5 3 I am really enjoying this series even though I am managing to

everyone has said it s not as good as the first three Wallflower books, or maybe it was because LK is such a fabulous storyteller, and made me fall in love with the charactersbut who cares I thoroughly enjoyed it Thinking back on the other Wallflowers stories, maybe Scandal In Spring doesn t quite have all the drama, or even the passion although Daisy and Matthew were passionate enough for me of the oth I loved this story Maybe it was because I approached it with lower expectations, since everyone has said it s not as good as the first three Wallflower books, or maybe it was because LK is such a fabulous storyteller, and made me fall in love with the charactersbut who cares I thoroughly enjoyed it Thinking back on the other Wallflowers stories, maybe Scandal In Spring doesn t quite have all the drama, or even the passion although Daisy and Matthew were passionate enough for me of the other books, and maybe Daisy and Matthew s relationship wasn t as volatile as the others, but there was plenty to love in this sweet and sexy story.I loved how Daisy and Matthew met or should I say re met , since they d known each other for quite a while I m assuming that Matthew and Daisy hadn t seen each other for three years she being in England and Matthew in New York , and Daisy and her sister Lillian remembering Matthew as being this unattractive, gangly string bean, know it all suck up who works for her father Daisy s father has given up hope that she ll find a peer to marry, and he wants to marry her off in the worst way, so he tells her that he s picked out Matthew Swift for her Daisy and Lillian are aghast at this idea, and Daisy s determined that this not happen But when Daisy meets Matthew at the wishing well at Stony Crossoh wow, she can t believe how he s filled out and how attractive he s become There s a bit of a spark there, but Daisy fights it When Daisy confronts Matthew with her father s idea for them, Matthew assures Daisy that it will never happen, that he can t marry her Hmmm, what does that mean Throughout the story we re told about Matthew s long hidden desires for Daisy, but how he s determined to not let anything happen between them, no matter how much he longs for her We re left to wonder just what he s hiding, and if Daisy will ever find out his secrets I must confess when I did found out what he was hiding, it wasn t as bad as I d imagined And I loved how Daisy and Westcliff and even Lillian and Thomas Bowman supported him and were determined to see that he and Daisy get their HEA These scenes brought a few tears to my eyes.There were many scenes between Matthew and Daisy that I enjoyed, but one of my favorites was an early one their encounter with the trapped goose Hilarious Another was when Matthew rescued Daisy from the wild boar this was when Daisy and Matthew both knew that the attraction between the two of them was mutual, and the reader knows that things are about to heat up And probably one of the most emotional for me was when he presented her with the daisy ring sigh The love scenes Verrry satisfying I loved how Daisy was not a shrinking violet and often took the initiative, and delighted in provoking Matthew into losing control While Matthew was described as being practical and dependable dependable does not mean boring I really felt the love between these two.One other thing made this book so satisfying to read, and that was the inclusion of all the other wallflowers Lillian, Annabelle, and Evie in the story, and to read about their ongoing friendship Wow, those ladies have some great dialogue in this book They always make me laugh I also enjoyed seeing the continuation of Westcliff s and Lillian s relationship loved Westcliff s devotion to her , and I particularly loved the amount of page time Westcliff got in the story, and how he turned out to be such a friend to Daisy and Matthew He may be my favorite hero in the whole series.So fans of this series, if you ve been holding out on reading this one because you ve heard it wasn t that great, just remember a not so great book by Lisa Kleypas is better than a lot of books out there I loved this one, and I m so sorry that I only have oneto read in this memorable series Now on to A Wallflower Christmas 4 1 2 stars Librarian S Note Alternate Cover For This ISBN Can Be Found HereAfter Spending Three London Seasons
