Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Thank goodness for a writer that listens. I was pleasantly surprise i must admit I was beginning to believe this book was like all the rest man chase woman love hate relationship and than they come together finally than the end. It had become so frustrating to listen to the drama the couples had to go through and than no information hardly ever when they are finally together just a few loving making spots but Lisa pull it off trying not to give the story away but for me I enjoy the way she put it together there was a few frustrating parts but well blended. A good listen.
Your mileage may vary
If you have read anything else by Lisa Kleypas, such as the Hathaway family books (such as Seduce Me At Sunrise) you will be charmed by the Wallflowers! I don't read a lot of historicals, but these are gems. Good narration also.
Say something about yourself!
Not your traditional regency romance! Loved the twists and the ending! Can't wait to read/hear the next one in the series.
I read so many good reviews on this series I thought it would be a good purchase. While it was not the worst it was by far not what I expected. I will not be ordering any more from the series.
Lisa Kleypas is a wonderful story teller, she cuts to the chase and creates characters you want to get to know.
Listen to book two. I'm starting book 3 today. Check out her Hathaway series; it brought me to the Wallflowers. Love them all.
She made me not want to stop listening. I've stayed up all night listening to her read.
I always feel emotions when I listen to a Lisa Kleypas story; Ms Landor brings it to life.
I think it was well worth it.
I couldn't wait to purchase the 2nd book as the first one was so "wow". It is the first time that i listened to the 2nd book of a series directly after the first one - i usually take a break and listen to a different author. Ros Landor is an EXCELLENT narator, the story is realistic and gripping and it really sucks you into the lives of the characters. I am however very disappointed that the other books aren't recorded yet - i cannot WAIT to hear how the other wallflowers find their matches! I highly recommend both the first and the second book!
Riveting charachers! Very funny at times.
Annabelle Peyton and her independent spirit.
Lisa Klepas characters come alive!
I really enjoy every thing I've listened to by Lisa Kleypas. I love this series and enjoyed the non-traditional Victorian misses finding love with non-traditional men of the time.
The performance was spot on and let me immerse in the book for true enjoyment.
mainly read romances and books for a book club that take me all over the map.
Listened to this one for the fourth or fifth time this weekend and still enjoyed it. The story starts to flesh out some of how society is changing as the industrial revolution is underway contrasting entrepreneurs with traditional aristocracy. Annabelle and Simon are wonderfully memorable characters. The supporting cast sets up the Wallflowers Series very nicely. If you enjoy the idea of getting lost in a world filled with ballrooms, beautifully gowned women and an alpha male staking his claim this should be on your download list.
While this wasn't epic, it was a really cute read. I laughed often through out the book. I loved the story of the 4 girls, and their friendship. Simon was a great character as well - but lost a small bit of appeal at the end. He seemed to simmer down at the end of the story, and.. well, - I kinda liked him untamed, lol.
I would recommend the book - I liked it and am headed off for the next book in the series.
