Wallflower: The Old Maids' Club, Book 1 | [Catherine Gayle]

Wallflower: The Old Maids' Club, Book 1

The choice between adhering to a long-held pact and finally accepting love could prove Lady Tabitha Shelton's unhinging. She is plump, plain, pleasant... and thoroughly unappealing to any of the men of the ton - apart from fortune hunters. A self-appointed wallflower, she has every intention of remaining one. Tabitha made a vow of spinsterhood with her cousins when they were girls, and she refuses to go back on her word.

Publisher's Summary

The choice between adhering to a long-held pact and finally accepting love could prove Lady Tabitha Shelton's unhinging. She is plump, plain, pleasant... and thoroughly unappealing to any of the men of the ton - apart from fortune hunters. A self-appointed wallflower, she has every intention of remaining one. Tabitha made a vow of spinsterhood with her cousins when they were girls, and she refuses to go back on her word. So far, she's proven herself quite adept at warding off the blasted fortune hunters' pursuits.

Noah deLancie, Marquess of Devonport, would prefer to marry for love and companionship - he's a gentleman through and through - but circumstances have forced his hand: he needs money as badly as he needs a bride. When Noah's brother-in-law suggests pursuit of his sister, Tabitha, a woman with a dowry large enough to cause even Croesus to blush and who is tantalizingly good company to boot, Noah stumbles into the future he hopes to secure. He'll stop at nothing to convince Tabitha to marry him. Nothing, that is, except perhaps the barrel of a dueling pistol, held to his face by his ladylove.

    I love to sew and read. Now I can do both at the same time!

    "Who knows if it's a good book or not?"

    It was so hard to get past the narrator's dreadful speech pattern that I couldn't have told you for sure if it was a good book or not. The way she SPIT! OUT! WORDS! in a staccato rhythym made me glad I wasn't having a face to face conversation with her.

    Every so often, she forgot herself and her voice returned to a normal pattern.

    I gave up after a few chapters and finished the book on Kindle.

    The health department should be warned about this woman. I think I might have caught the flu.

    "The narrator is racing for the finish line!"

    Just started to listen to this one.
    Boy, Sherill Turner (narrator) is quite in a hurry! Does she thinks this is a RACE?
    Wonder if she as another book to read.
