Scandal in Spring
Quirky and fun-loving American heiress Daisy Bowman is the last unmarried Wallflower. Her exasperated father has informed her that if she can’t find a husband by the end of her third London season, she will be forced to marry a man she hates—the ruthless en...more
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 o ...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
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 ...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
I've been going through a massive reading/reviewing slump lately. I think this book was a massive victim of that slump. I hoped a Wallflower book would pull me out of it, but alas it didn't. There's nothing wrong with this book, I just failed to connect to it. My fault and not the author's.
This book is about the youngest wallflower Daisy, whose father declares a match for her when she doesn't procure an English husband. Unfortunately, Daisy hates the American businessman her father ch ...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! ...more
“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 so ...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 temp...more
“Most lives are not distinguished by great achievements. They are measured by an infinite number of small ones. Each time you do a kindness for someone or bring a smile to his face, it gives your life meani...more
"A versatile flower, the daisy," Matthew commented, breaking the silence.
"Lovely in its freshness and simplicity. I've always thought it went well in any kind of arrangement."
Another wonderful story by Lisa Kleypas. And a sweet ending to the Wallflower series. I was really happy that she included the other characters in the book. And Daisy finally got her happy-ever-after ending. I felt that this one was a little bit more predictable than the first three novels. But I loved t ...more
But the amazing Lisa Kleypas ended the series with a bang!!! Daisy's story became my favorite, even more the one of Lillian and Marcus with their ...more
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
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

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...
Daisy Bowman is the last Wallflower, and really feeling that "forever alone ...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 i ...more
Really like the heroine, Daisy. I like any h who knows what she wants and goes after it. Despite her initial prejudices towards Matthew, she gets over it relatively soon and then she sticks to her guns and is truly devoted and loyal. She uses everything she's got to get what she wants (what they both want), making her a "modern" heroine vs. the ones from Jane Austen who are prob more time period app ...more
I have totally loved the Wallflowers series!
These lovable (except for Lilian) wallflowers banded together to find husbands and unexpectedly they found love!
What a breath of fresh air Daisy was in this one. I have enjoyed her character throughout the series but she really shined in this one. Maybe it was because it is HER story! LOL I loved her bubbly personality and all her imperfections as she would say.
Daisy feared she wouldn’t find a husband like the other Wallflowers had. She wasn’t sure there was a man out there that understood her and could love her for who she was. Boy oh boy was she surprised when upon seeing a man from her past caused the ...more
“To friendship," Lillian said, her voice suddenly husky.
And their four glasses clicked in one perfect moment.”
A perfect end to a fabulous series.
Book 4: London 1844
An American whose father has made his fortune manufacturing soap. Her mother brought her and her sister (Lillian) to England to marry peers. Lillian has already found her true love (Book 2) and Daisy is the last of the Wallflowers who has yet to marry. She l ...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:
The last of the Wallflowers finds her true love in this book. ...more
