Scandal in Spring was a touching and sweet read. I loved Daisy and Matthew. Matthew had a funny dry sense of humor that was very charming. Daisy was a romantic and a dreamer. They made a cute couple. I thought Matthew was so sweet the way he loved Daisy. I loved the bowls war they had. I laughed so hard. I have to say I really don't like Daisy and Lillian's parents. Just sayin' they are cold-hearted assholes. This book was a little slower for me then some of the othe ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more
Updated review after second reread 3/27/13
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 hig ...more
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 ...more
'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.
Lisa Kleypas has a talent for writing charming characters and witty dialogue. It is nice too the way she brings back the characters from previous books so we can see how their lives have progressed.
Altogether light, entertaining and very enjoyable!
El principio me ha encantado, entre otras cosas, por la lucha interior que sostenía consigo mismo Swift por mantenerse alejado de Daisy. El final en cambio, me ha parecido lentísimo, y ha hecho que mi valoración baje.
Y ya terminada la serie de las Wallflowers (me gusta mucho más que floreros), resumo mis impresiones:
-La mejor pareja: Anabelle y Simon
-El hilo conductor en todos los libros: Marcus Westcliff.
“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 ...more

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 ...more
Daisy deserved a husband who was honest and whole, not one who had built his life on lies.
But that didn’t stop Matthew from wanting her. He had always wanted Daisy, with an intensity that seemed to radiate from the pores of his skin.
♥ What an excellent book for the final wallflower!! ♥
She hated it that she felt so alive with him. She hated the way her senses drank in his presence like dry earth absorbing rain. She hated his handsome face and virile body, and the mouth that was more tempting...more

I'm slowly working my way through the Wallflowers series, and I have to say, this is Lisa Kleypas at her most charming. Nothing can surpass my love for The Gamblers duology, of course, but Wallflowers comes pretty darn close. It's about three sisters, and their friend, all of whom are considered wallflowers and bluestockings, and completely undesirable as wives...

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 ...more
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.
This is the last full length book in t ...more
this has got to be one of the coolest gif's I've found. WTF is going on here?
So, the Victorian asshats didn't think much of women, huh? Well, I say to them:

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 ...more
Daisy is the last lady to be married. I really enjoyed Daisy’s book because I love her sister and her brother in law so much. Daisy is what I would say is quirky and a little silly. She is forced to marry Matthew Swift because her dad wants to give the company to Mr. Swift when he dies.
I LOVE the fact Daisy is forced into marriage. Every ...more
“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; ...more
Llegamos a la última de mis queridas wallflowers, a las más pequeñas soñadora, amorosa, intrépida y divertida Daisy.
Su libro me gustó mucho, excepto por el final que fue muy apresurado, todos los problemas y dificultades se resuelven en las últimas diez páginas y el secreto, pues no es la gran cosa espera algo más, pero de ahí en fuera fue un libro muy tierno, Matthew me gustó, no al nivel de mi Sebastián, pero si tiene esa parte romántica y dulce, que estuviera enamorado de D ...more
Really, after reading Evie and Sebastian's story, everything else in this series sort of pales in comparison. It's just too cute. Almost like it doesn't belong in the series at all. But I liked Daisy and Matthew, so it was at least enjoyable.
If only Evie and Sebastian had been in it more...

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, ...more
