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 characters...but 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

Book 4 in the Wallflower series finds Daisy Bowman, the only wallflower yet unwed, being faced with an ultimatum: Find a suitable husband by the end of May, or be forced to wed a man of her father’s choosing. Who is that man? Matthew Swift, Thomas Bowman’s protégé and the last person on the planet that Daisy would ever consider marrying.

Matthew Swift learns about the marriage ultimatum from Daisy herself. While he has secretly adored her for years, there are skeletons in his closet that would th
Oh my freaking god - this book is so amazing. This was the second time around, and if anything I loved it more!. I 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!

She was the most provoking, beguiling woman he had ever met. Thunderstorms and rainbows wrapped together in a convenient pocket-size

'Father, wouldn't it be wonderful if hummingbirds had tea parties and we were small enough to be invited?'


A 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
This was a really adorable read for the final wallflower Daisy!

I really adored Daisy throughout the series and was really looking forward to her book, Daisy is such a dreamer and perhaps like many readers can relate to her more then the other wallflowers. When she forced to find a husband or get married to her father’s chosen man for her, she tries her best to find a husband and quick! What she doesn’t realize is her father’s chosen man would be the handsome and caring Matthew Swift, who I ju

I can safely say that I loved all of the Wallflowers, and I loved all of their men. But I do think I loved Matthew Swift most of all. He is such a down to earth person, not really caring about others opinions of him. He just does what he wants, and what he wants is usually wonderfully endearing. His interaction with Annabelle's baby made me melt. He and Daisy's "bloodthirsty lawn bowling" game made me laugh out loud. And his enduring love for Daisy was beautiful.

Second read March 24, 2013.. yup read it in a day... that good!!

This is the fourth book, and perhaps my favorite in the Wallflower series. In the previous three books we are introduced to Daisy Bowman. The daughter of an American industrialist and entrepreneur. Thomas Bowman has brought his two daughters to England with the sole purpose of them marrying a Peer. His motives for this is so that his business connections will be better when he expands his Soap Empire t

I have been reading Lisa Kleypas’ “Wallflowers” series for a long time and now, I have finally read the fourth book in the “Wallflowers” series, “Scandal in Spring!” This time, the fans are introduced to Daisy Bowman, the last of the Wallflowers, who seems to have a love/hate relationship with ruthless yet gentle Matthew Swift! “Scandal in Spring” is one romance novel that is so full of drama, exciting and pure sizzling romance that will have every romance fan boiling with pure pleasure!

If it weren't for Lillian, I might like this book a bit more. There was simply too much of her and her infallibility. I think Daisy deserved a more pronounced role in her own story. Somehow other characters got in the way.

The good thing is I loved both Daisy and Matthew. I loved how they act together and apart. Neither is boring or overbearing like some characters tend to become in their own stories. Matthew's secret and problem are serious enough, but you are not beaten over your head with it.

“The Lesson,” by Dita Joseph

(This is a review of the audiobook.) Ms. Landor is one of my favorite Historical Romance readers because she always gets the atmosphere right for the era. That, and her pacing is perfect. Here she convincingly depicts the outraged Daisy Bowman, who is appalled that her father wants her to marry his protégé. Ms. Landor adds dimension and emotion to Ms. Kleypas’ characters and I even cried over one conversation between Daisy and her sister, Lillian; some

SCANDAL IN SPRING is the fourth book in Lisa Kleypas's excellent Wallflowers series and is the captivating story of Daisy Bowman who finds love where she least expects it.

Daisy's lack of success in the marriage mart forces an ultimatum from her father, Thomas Bowman. If she doesn't find a suitable husband within the next two months, she will marry her father's choice, Matthew Swift. This is Daisy's worst nightmare because she remembers Mr Swift as being an exact carbon copy of her father - cold,

Miss Annabelle Payton, Miss Lillian Bowman, Miss Evangeline Jenner and Miss Daisy Bowman used to be regular sights at the peripheral of a ballroom. This was before they formed an unlikely friendship each vowing to help the others out to find a husband by means fair and foul. Daisy Bowman is the last of the wallflowers to be wed and now her father has issued her with the ultimatum of finding a husband in the next few months...or he will pick someone for her.

Can I give this a million stars??!!!!

I don't know if I'm capable of saying anything that could come close to the worthiness of this book. It's LK. Enough said.

Honestly though, I LOVED THIS. I am battling over whether this, or 'Devil in Winter' is the best of the series. I keep coming up empty. THEY'RE BOTH AMAZING. BEAUTIFUL. MEMORABLE.
I love Daisy. She was the sweet, yet intelligent sister to Lilliane and the youngest of the wallflowers. She was magical and possessed a very
Finally the story of Daisy!! She is my favorite wallflower because she is a bookworm and a romantic!

It’s true that this book hadn’t so much drama or passion like the previous ones but it was a great read for different reasons. It’s more frisky and like Daisy more unpredictable!

Daisy is a woman who doesn’t fit neither in English high society or the American. She’s romantic and prefers books from humans. She has a very close relationship with her sister and she waits for her prince charming. She t

Sigh! Love this series.

I was in a book slump and I knew I could count on LK to get me out. I really enjoyed this last book of the series. It was nice, funny and sweet. My favorites of the series still are Again the Magic and It Happened One Autumn. I have the biggest crush on Marcus. He’s my favorite man of the series. Despite loving Matthew’s character I still loved and swooned everything Marcus did and said on this one.

This was Daisy and Matthew’s book. Daisy is the last single wallflower. A
Daisy Bowman is the last unmarried wallflower and her father is so disappointed with her that he decides to take matters into his own hands and marry her to someone of his choosing. That man happens to be Matthew Swift, an employee of his, who unfortunately Daisy finds completely unbearable. However, when Swift comes to England it turns out he's not still the unattractive, cold man Daisy remembered. The years that have passed were more than kind to him, turning him into a handsome, confident and ...more

Ok I guess there are no words to describe how I feel about this series. I've been writing the reviews for the books in this series for the past 4 days and must recommend them to all romance fans.

But I will say something about this book. I know it is not how everyone felt, but I have to say that this was my favorite in the series. I absolutely adore Daisy! She was amazing. And I won't even begin to talk about Matthew because I won't be able to stop. I'm not in the mood for a review, all I want to
Not the best,but still very good.
I loved the epilogue.It was amazing.

It's good to know there is a 5th book.

Reviewed for THC Reviews
Until now, the Wallflower series has been pretty good but not 100% satisfying for me like it has been for so many other readers. Based on the ratings I've seen at various book-related sites and the fact that I rarely see it mentioned as a fan favorite, it would seem that Scandal in Spring is possibly the least favorite book for most readers of the series. As such, I wasn't sure what to expect going into it, but now that I've finished it, I'm going to go against the grain

The Last Melon!!

No wait, wrong story.

I meant to say: The Last Wallflower! NOOOOO! It’s so hard to say goodbye…

This is Daisy’s book, the dreamer/romantic/bookish wallflower. She has been husband-hunting for 3 years but as we all know men can be idiots and the girl is still single – and as so, her father sends for his most dedicated employee, Mr Matthew Swift, and tells Daisy she’ll have to marry the guy. Daisy can’t stand the idea, because she loads Mr Swift, who she thinks is the very image of
Unfortunately I didn't think this was as good as the first three Wallflower books. It's more of a 3.5 stars though.

It was predictable and a bit boring. I wanted things to hurry along at times. Matthew doesn't really stand out as a strong hero like the other heroes in the previous stories and Daisy was too different from the other books where she appeared more whimsical. The steamy scenes were missing something too. Daisy's sister Lillian is a pain in this story, bossy, stuck up in a way and just
Why, oh,why did I discover this author.... and I mean that in a good way. My Kindle has given me the opportunity to read books that have been long published and this is a good and bad thing - good thing is that once I start a series like The Wallflowers I don't have to wait for ages for the next book to be released. Bad thing - it is costing me a fortune. Just finished book 4 and I loved it - read some bad reviews and thought I would not like but but ignore them and read all the books. Have actu ...more
The fourth and final installment to Lisa Klepas wildly popular Wallflower series, I thought nothing could top Evie's story (Devil in Winter). Okay, okay, I'm thinking DIW is STILL my favorite- but Scandal in Spring comes a very close second.

In SIS we get Daisy's story. Younger sister to Lillian Bowman (It Happened One Autumn), Daisy is the dreamy imaginative one of the self-proclaimed Wallflower girls. A typical head the clouds type a gal, you just know it's gonna take a special man to win her h
How lovely to spend some more time with my favourite wallflowers. I didn’t realise how much I had missed them.

In the absence of a designated holiday read, Scandal in Spring was a lovely feel-good book to read at Christmas time, and was just perfect for my 100th read of the year (yay me!).

I have heard tell that Scandal in Spring was the weakest book in the series, and I’m happy to say that I didn’t find that at all. While it couldn’t quite match the fun of It Happened One Autumn (and also because

I loved this story, I think all that much more because it was slightly different to the other Wallflower books in the series.

In all previous book we met the next match before their book was released. Even in the first novel we met Mr. Hunt in the very beginning before the season started and coincidently met Lord Westcliffe in the same novel. In Lillian and Lord Westcliffe's novel we met Sebastian but no where in Evie and Sebastian's book did we hear of Matthew Swift.

This is the fourth book in the Wallflowers series by Lisa Kleypas. The Wallflowers are the first novels that I have read by this author, but they won't be the last!

I think Matthew is probably my favorite hero of the four books, although Simon is close second...or maybe Westcliff...but then there's St. Vincent... Oh, who am I kidding? I LOVE all the men in this series.

I really have a thing for the unrequited love-from-afar story, and Matthew's love for Daisy is so real that it leaps off the pag
4.5 stars, maybe even 5. I read this some years ago (and several times since) but Susanne's review prompted a poem.

Daisy Bowman, Lillian's sister, the last of the Wallflowers. Short, but not shy of wit or courage. She can have a sharp tongue, but her heart is true.

Matthew, the bold American she loves (at first unwillingly, because Father selected him.) Extremely sexy, he is. And noble, trying to resist the delightfully rude and deliciously pugnacious Daisy, because his past has him in a chokeh
Scandal in Spring is the last book in the Wallflowers series, entailing Daisy Bowman's romance with Matthew Swift. It was just as lovely as the rest of the series and it was wonderful seeing the other three wallflowers lives after marriage. I'm so bummed that the series is over, as this series has grown to be one of my romance favorites. This book was a lovely end to an equally lovely series.
