Customer Reviews

The sensual love scenes are well written as in other stories.
Beverly Romance Books
Matthew was such a great hero - you could actually see how much he cared for Daisy and loved her the way she was.

Even though you know what's going to happen in the end, the book is a great read.

As I finished the wonderful conclusion in Kleypas's wallflowers series, I found myself wondering, where will she go from here? I can honestly say that she has penned one of the dearest series of books ever to come across these well-read romantic eyes. The detail of Daisy's story was a masterfully done wrap-up to a heartwarming group of reads.

Daisy Bowman is a fresh breeze amongst the rougher backdrop that is her family. Her innocent ways have done her no favors though, as she's looked on with much affection by her sister Lillian and friends, just not with much sense. When her father demands she choose a husband, or else marry a man she detests, not even her fellow wallflowers can save her. Not one to back down from a challenge, Daisy is rather dismayed when the very man her father wishes her to marry, Matthew Swift, appears on the scene. He's much changed from the man she remembers and she's not sure how to deal with the attractive businessman. Chance finds them often together in the following days and Matthew turns out to be far more than the money hungry employee of her father than she first thought. As all-consuming passion buds between them, a tragic secret from Matthew's past threatens their hopes.

What has carried throughout this entire series to date, the strong characters, still reins supreme as the most enticing factor in the last installment. Daisy has appeared before as the witty youngest amongst the wallflowers, a fierce supporter of them and their heart's desires. To see their fervent support of her this time solidified my admiriation for their friendship. Daisy is brought forth in her own story as a sweet innocent, a woman bursting with the hope of love and someone to share it with.

Scandal in Spring, the final installment of Kleypas's wallflower series, (Secrets of a Summer Night, It Happened One Autumn, and Devil in Winter) tells the story of Daisy Bowman's search for love. The youngest of the four friends who once dubbed themselves the "wallflowers", Daisy is a wealthy American heiress who desperately needs to find an English husband before her father marries her off to his protegee Mathew Swift. Daisy remembers Mr. Swift as a cold, ambitious "bag of bones" with the same temperament as her domineering father, but when Mr. Swift arrives in England, Daisy is shocked to discover that he has grown into a handsome and thoughtful man. Through a series of touching encounters, Daisy realizes that the last man she ever wanted to marry is the one man she can't live without.

Unfortunately Mr. Swift is keeping a secret that he knows will destroy whatever tenderness Daisy might come to have for him. Though he has adored Ms. Bowman from afar for years, he cannot let himself act on his feelings for fear of dragging his love into the darkness that threatens to track him down. But the more time he spends with the whimsical and charming Daisy the more he comes to realize that love is worth the risk of discovery.

Kleypas does a wonderful job of giving the last "wallflower" her own special love story. Daisy's romantic nature and Matthew's practicality compliment each other nicely. Daisy manages to keep an open mind about Matthew and he never disappoints her, even when his "secret" is revealed.

As in all romance novels their needs to be SOME reason that the hero and heroine can't fall madly in love with each other in the first 10 pages. Daisy's prejudice against Mr. Swift based on her father's approval of him was a very legitimate reason.

...of Wallflower novels. My favorite of the series is Secrets of a Summer Night; I don't think any of the others quite measures up to it, but they're all extremely enjoyable in their own ways. I am sorry to see this series end. Kleypas is probably my favorite romance author at this point; I always look forward to a new book from her. Hey, are any of you other fans thinking what I've been thinking...how about a book about the Gypsy Cam Rohan, who was enticingly introduced in Devil in Winter and never heard from again?? I thought he was a lot more interesting than the hero of this new book, and I was kind of hoping Kleypas would find a way to bring him and Daisy together. One can only hope....but back to the subject at hand; this is a book that is well worth your while, and I hope those who have not yet read Kleypas' wonderful books will check out the whole series.

I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if it had not been for the foreshadowing in "Devil in Winter." That book hinted at a relationship between Daisy and Cam Rohan - a much more colorful hero with a gyspy background. I was expecting an exciting tale with a dark hero - instead it ended up as another (relatively) boring houseparty. That being said, Kleypas' writing is excellent and her heroes are well written, so it wasn't a complete waste. Still, I would prefer Kleypas to revisit the society she introduced us to in "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Lady Sophia's Lover".

Like most reviewers of this latest and last installment of the Wallflowers Quartet, I liked delving into Daisy's mind and heart. I also liked the presence of the other characters, who liven up an otherwise dragging plot. The plot is one of the reasons this novel isn't topnotch. The so-called scandal is deferred too long, so long that by the time it gets revealed to complicate the main romance, Kleypas rushes through it and summarizes instead of dramatizes that titled complication--I was confused by that label and disappointed in the plotting. It doesn't feel like a scandal but a mere interruption in the outcome. The other main problem is Matthew. He is intriguing but not in a great way. I couldn't quite get a handle on him throughout, and felt he was eclipsed by the constant dynamic presence of Marcus, and even by our brief reminder of sexy, roguish Sebastian, who thankfully is not totally redeemed. More of Matthew's inner life would give us a glimpse of him.

I would rate the Wallflowers series in the following order of excellence: 1) It Happened one Autumn (best wit and sparks between two strong romantic leads, esp. Marcus); The Devil in Winter (refreshing pairing of the shy wallflower with a hardened unstereotypical rake--we really see Sebastian begrudgingly and imperfectly overcome his selfish, jaded attitude); 3) Scandal in Spring (great heroine and secondary characters, see flaws above); 4) Secrets of a Summer Night (heroine is too grasping and shallow, hero is too brutish--butcher's son, ugh... The best thing about this novel is our introduction to Lillian and Marcus. I loved the rounders scene!) Overall, a great series! Read it from beg. to end.
