Publisher's Summary

After spending three London seasons searching for a husband, Daisy Bowman’s father has told her in no uncertain terms that she must find a husband. Now. And if Daisy can’t snare an appropriate suitor, she will marry the man he chooses - the ruthless and aloof Matthew Swift.

Daisy is horrified. A Bowman never admits defeat, and she decides to do whatever it takes to marry someone…anyone…other than Matthew. But she doesn’t count on Matthew’s unexpected charm…or the blazing sensuality that soon flares beyond both their control. And Daisy discovers that the man she has always hated just might turn out to be the man of her dreams.

But right at the moment of sweet surrender, a scandalous secret is uncovered…one that could destroy both Matthew and a love more passionate and irresistible than Daisy’s wildest fantasies.

Don't be shy! Listen to another Wallflowers romance.

    "perfect summer romance series"
    Where does Scandal in Spring rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    one of my favorites in this genre


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Lisa Kleypas' lyrical writing style that keeps very much in line with the period in which she writes. Her characters are interesting and the storyline is well developed.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Miss Landor's performances never fail to be spot on!


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, the stories are little over the top, but isn't that why we read romance novels? they are pure enjoyment.

    "Too many secrets unfold..."
    Any additional comments?

    Daisy is a charming innocent young lady who loves books and is unconcerned with marriage prospects until her dad forces the issue to her. Matthews character, which was not mentioned in the prior books, re-emerges In Daisy's life from their New York past. He is a tough businesman but the whole book is based on his secrets which unfold at once at the end of the book. That detracted quite a bit from the story as I kept expecting the big reveal instead of enjoying the journey.

    "Don't let the 3 stars fool you."
    Would you listen to Scandal in Spring again? Why?

    Yes! It was entertaining.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I only give this 3 stars because it is an average book. It's highly enjoyable and entertaining, but is not earth shattering.

    Story
    "Seemed to be written only to finish series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Scandal in Spring to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    In the beginning I got the impression this was written because the author had finish the series, not so much she felt passionate about Daisy's story. It seem so predicatable.
    The middle it did become passionate, like the previous books, no real suprises but a good storyline. Unfortunately the end seemed so rushed as if there she was ending her word limit.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to the 4 of the 5 books of the Wallflowers.

    It took a short while for me to get use to the period speak, and now it would be a contributing factor choosing a book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The did laugh and cry during different spots in the book, but I won't tell you where.

    "Super cute!"
    What made the experience of listening to Scandal in Spring the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "One of the better books in the series!"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Entertaining story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Would you recommend Scandal in Spring to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I think girl who has close female friends can relate to this.

    Story
    "Not the best fo the series"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.


    What three words best describe Rosalyn Landor’s performance?

    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.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I think so. If only to see what they did with it.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
