I love the Wallflower series! LK and RL are a great team with everything I have read.
Although the narrator does do similar voice for the characters in the series for the men (and yes I did listen to them all), the book still had a good plot and the characters endear themselves to you.
Lisa Kleypas is a good author and she is CONSISTENT! I can not say how important that is! With all the formulaic romance novels you need to understand good characters and their interactions. Lisa Kleypas does this.
This is a love story between Daisy Bowman and her father's portage Matthew Swift. An American family who comes to London in hopes of marrying their daughters into the aristocracy. After waiting for three seasons, Daisy's father is tired of spending money and time in England waiting for his younger daughter to marry into nobility. His ultimatum to her is that she must marry by the end of the season or he will marry her off to Mathew Swift. Having disliked him growing up because of the similarities she had perceived between her father and Mathew, she sets off to find a husband, any husband, in order to avoid marriage to him. This is a cute story and actually has more humor in it than the rest of the books in the series thus far. A definite good listen.
I started listening to audio books at work and have fell in love, some of my favorate authors are Christine Feehan and Lisa Kleypas.
Yes written very well followed the series wonderfully love the narrator
Any of Lisa's books are wonderful just pick one the Hathaway Series was fabulous.
When the main character kicked the butts of her family
Lisa Kleypas is a must have if you love Historical Romance this author is a must have plus the narrator is always good
I'm not much of a romance fan, but I started listening to the Wallflower series based on a friend's recommendation. I have to admit that I throughly enjoyed this book, and the complete Wallflower series. The romance/love affair part of the story I thought was secondary to the friendship element. I love the relationship Lisa Kleypas created between the four "Wallflowers". It was very believable and realistic.
Yes, I think girl who has close female friends can relate to this.
Not really, except that I couldn't really connect with Daisy as a woman, she seemed too childlike. I'm not sure if that's the book or the voice but there was something missing.
Constant, well prepared, slightly annoying. I hated her American accent, I think it really detracted from the experience, and Lillian sounded like an old woman or a grumpy headmistress at an all boys boarding school. It made it really hard to sympathize with her and her opinions.
I think so. If only to see what they did with it.
I really recommend the third in the series, the devil in winter (a devil in winter?), not quite sure what the title was. It was my favorite.
"I wear a fez now, fez's are cool"
I loved the hero. Not enough time spent on the hero and heroine, their story felt empty.
I would because it finishes the story but with some concerns. The book has a great male lead that is squandered. Daisy was one of my favorite wallflower girls yet she is kind of given a side story in her romance.
More time with the main characters, far less time with Lillian.
While I loved Westcliff, his presence was way to overwhelming to the point he almost overshadowed Matt, the hero. Lillian is almost intolerable in this book. To the point I would fast forward through her sections even if characters I liked were present. I get Lillian is Daisy's sister but she is such a beast in this book her presence almost makes me want to give the book one star.
Luckily I was able to fast forward through her sections. Two of my favorite characters have all too brief cameos which adds to my dislike of Lillian, she is just so over powering and so poorly drawn.
Matt was a great character and he was almost ignored which is too bad because he was drawn very well. The times Daisy and he were together were funny and heartfelt, just so few and far between I felt the author short changed them.
The mystery was interesting.
I liked Lillian's story much better and that is too bad because I really don't like her character at all and find it frustrating that one of the best of the wallflowers gets this shrug worthy story.
I have seen other comments complain about Daisy not being with Cam from Devil, but honestly Matt is just as well drawn. So little time is spent on Daisy and Matt, and too much is spent on other characters.
Read it because it finishes the series and because Matt is worthy of Daisy, it's just too bad the story isn't.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I adored the Wallflowers! This is a well done end to the series. I highly recommend the series. This is not the best book of the series but certainly I loved it. Again Rosalyn you never fail me! Excellent voice, interaction, and performance.
