Book Review: Scandal In Spring

I love Lisa Kleypas. She's a fantastic writer and I always enjoy her books. If I had to name her best skill it would have to be that she is masterful at writing heros that are pretty much the embodiment of feminine fantasy. Tall, dark, handsome, strong... you get the point.

She does it again in "Scandal In Spring," the last installment in her Wallflowers series. That series has been very good and a personal favorite of mine. The hero, Matthew Swift, is a typical Kleypas hero, the kind of man any woman would want. And the heroine, Daisy, is equally as pleasant.

The book flowed well and the interactions between the characters was enjoyable to read, but there wasn't much of a zing to the story. The end, which in romance novels is always where some mystery/secret/criminal plot climaxes, felt a little sloppily put together and rushed. It just didn't seem to be a worthy end to what was a pleasant story. I would recommend the book, though, but only after the other three Wallflower books were read, because the rest of them were better in my opinion.
