... this novel and it's story came in as a B+ to me. Still a good read/listen but it kinda pales in comparison to some of her other books. I had hoped to read all the Wallflower books but with #2 focusing on Lillian (Rosalyn Landor's American accent is hard on the ears, to be honest) I don't see myself reading a Wallflower novel beyond this one.Also, this book left a lot to be desired in terms of romantic magnatisim. They had character chemistry but it certainly didn't sweep me off my feet. It made me miss the passion of Alex & Lily (Then Came You) and Sara & Derrick (Dreaming Of You).
Great performance but her American accent sounds super obnoxious.
I wanted to feel more passion btwn the characters
yes over and over!!
Since this is part of a series I guess it would be the other books.
all of them
Very disappointed in this book. To much repeating previous dialogue/events between characters and the story dragged on-and-on. How many chapters did it take to tell us why "Mary" could not marry?
Say something about myself! I'm 66 with poor vision and HANDICAPPED,I save all my actual reading for my bible. My pleasure is at AUDIBLE!
with many short side trips that end up dead ends and some "stuff" one would not expect, this is a delightful and although a beautiful love story, it is a book with humor, friendship, backdoor planning and ....oh I don't want to say more because right at the moment you sit back, secure in the fact that you have the plot figured out ,WAM,..... not so and off it goes again...No profanity and oops there I go again..lots of surprises......READ THIS BOOK!!
The characters in this story are very well developed. I like the long-standing attraction between the two main characters and the way they truly came to understand and love one another. The action scenes are very well described and the plot is excellent.
If you like mid 19th Century romances, this won't disappoint. I thought it was very predictable. Girl of good background with noble blood meets a "Rhett Butler" type character of ignoble birth. It isn't bad it is just predictable. I prefer Lisa's more contemporary romances.
I love to read! With kids, that hobby is impossible...enter Audible...problem solved. Chores that I dread are now quiet time for this Mommy!!!
I love period romance, and Lisa Kleypass does not dissapoint in this novel! Narration is great, and the intro to these four characters make you want to delve deeper into their lives. I really love how Kleypass sets up the next book in the Epilogue of each novel! Worth a credit!!!
I love to read and have used it as a way to visit other countries and other worlds. Audible allows me to fit more books into my busy schedu
This is my favorite of the Wallflower's book. I like Simon Hunt and Annabelle because of their passion. It's clear to the reader how much they like one another before they realizew it themselves. Other reviewers have criticized Annabelle's mercenary tendencies however, Annabelle's plot to marry for convenience is not unusual given the times.
could not stop listening to this book but reader has an old sounding voice at times felt like i was listening to a forty year old reading about a young girl, good book love the wallflowers group!
