Review: A Wallflower Christmas
Author: Lisa Kleypas
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Plot: Rafe Bowman is supposed to marry Natalie, the daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford. Unfortunately, his good looks cannot bare the fact, that he is a rude American with a shocking reputation, who has to learn the rules of the London society. But then, four former wall flowers start their matchmaking and it turns out to be, that the bride-to-be won't be what Rafe expected.
I think... Ah, what a lovely read! I haven't read the other books in the series, which didn't bother me at all. I had no problems with the number of characters or the relationships to each other, cause it was well explained and in most cases obviously. Although, someone told me, I might have enjoyed it much more, when I would have read all books before.
I nevertheless enjoyed this book a lot. Lisa Kleypas has a great style of writing, a witty tone and the characters are amazing. Plus, this is a very christmassy story, which is exactly what I have been looking for for the challenge. A great historical read, although I am not a big fan of historicals. Happy Reading!
