Sweet Conclusion to Wallflowers Series

A SCANDAL IN SPRING is the story of Daisy Bowman and Matthew Swift. Daisy is the youngest of the Wallflowers. Daisy’s father has tired of waiting for her to find a husband. He has given her an ultimatum – find a husband before the end of the season in two months or she will marry his protege Matthew Swift. Daisy is appalled, but soon changes her mind when Matthew travels to England and he is not at all as she remembers. The two begin to fall in love but a secret from Matthew’s past threatens to keep them apart.

This book is a satisfying conclusion to the Wallflowers series, but is my least favorite. The conflict between the characters is mostly external and while there is a big buildup to the revelation of the secret, the resolution is too quick and easy. That being said, the book is not a disappointment and it is a sweet ending to the series.

For fans of the series, it is a necessary read. For others, I recommend starting with one of the other books of the series.
