In this story, the
final book of The Wallflower Series, the beautiful, petite,
bluestocking and American soap heiress Daisy Bowman discovers that
while waiting for true love to happen she has waited a bit too long.
Her father gives her an ultimatum; marry someone in three months or she
will marry his business associate Matthew Swift. Matthew is Mr.
Bowman's choice, not only for marriage, but to inherit the family
business. Matthew is shocked at this discovery, as he has secretly
loved Daisy for years, but has a shocking secret in his past that he
must keep hidden and so does not want to marry. The story is sensual
and heartwarming as Daisy fights her attaction to Matthew and then
realizes she is slowing falling in love with him. All of the past
Wallflowers and their spouses are back and once again together at
Westcliff's country estate. The sparks begin as Daisy and Matthew
reunite at the Wishing Well and build to a flame on a rainy afternoon
in Matthew's bachelor quarters. The sensual love scenes are well
written as in other stories. The disappointment is that this story ends
so abruptly. So much is revealed at the end of the story and then it
rushes through a wedding and ends with a brief epilogue. Could fans
hope for more on the Wallflowers and their families? Even with the
abrupt ending, this book will not disappoint and is a joy to read. As
usual, I am waiting for the next Lisa Kleypas romance!
