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

I'll just say I agree on everything the third time around. I cried and laughed just as much as the first two reads.

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

description

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
Robin (Bridge Four)
Daisy is the most fanciful of all the Wallflowers. She is forever with her head stuck in a book and thinking random thoughts.
“When 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 invited?”

Matthew on the other hand is dependable with two feet firmly on the ground and pockets full of solu
