Review: “A Wallflower Christmas” by Lisa Kleyplas

Mar 11

A Wallflower Christmas coverTitle: A Wallflower Christmas

Author: Lisa Kleypas

Series: Book 5, Wallflower Series

Publisher: St Martin’s Press

Publication Date: October 2008

Synopsis: The Wallflowers are four young ladies in London who banded together in their wild and wickedly wonderful searches for true love.

Now happily married, they join together once again to help one of the world’s most notorious rogues realize that happiness might be right under the mistletoe.…

It’s Christmastime in London and Rafe Bowman has arrived from America for his arranged meeting with Natalie Blandford, the very proper and beautiful daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford.

His chiseled good looks and imposing physique are sure to impress the lady in waiting and, if it weren’t for his shocking American ways and wild reputation, her hand would already be guaranteed.

Before the courtship can begin, Rafe realizes he must learn the rules of London society. But when four former Wallflowers try their hand at matchmaking, no one knows what will happen. And winning a bride turns out to be more complicated than Rafe Bowman anticipated, especially for a man accustomed to getting anything he wants.

However, Christmas works in the most unexpected ways, changing a cynic to a romantic and inspiring passion in the most timid of hearts.

A Wallflower Christmas takes a trip to Victorian London, under the mistletoe, and on a journey of the heart. With her trademark charm, sensuality, and unforgettable characters, there’s no one like Lisa Kleypas to make you believe in the magic of Christmas.

 

CABRGOLDReview: What a wonderful, engaging, funny, romantic, passionate historical romance!! 😀

Can you tell I enjoyed this book? LOL

It’s been so long since I read an historical romance, particularly a really good one, that picking up Lisa Kleypas’ book was a risk for me. Happily, her style of writing immediately drew me into the fifth and final book in the Wallflower Series.

There’s a prologue that explains the bond between the four original wallflowers – Annabelle, Evie and the sisters from New York, Lillian and Darcy, while setting the stage for what’s to come when Lillian’s and Darcy’s “rake” of an older brother, Rafe, embarks on a mission to marry a proper English lady; Natalie Blandford, in order to get his inheritance.

I love, love, love the spark and repartee between Rafe and his true match, Hannah Appleton. 😀 You will find yourself laughing one minute, cheering the next then saying Oh My whenever the chemistry between these two gets a chance to be physically expressed.

Who said people in Victorian England didn’t know what passion was?

As the title indicates, A WALLFLOWER CHRISTMAS is set around the traditional family holiday but at a time in England when Christmas trees were a rarity, rather than a must-have part of the holidays. The story also takes place not too long after the publication of A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens.

Lisa Kleypas does an excellent job of revealing what many people of the time thought of having a decorated fir tree inside their home and how children and adults alike fell in love with what has become a classic from Mr Dickens.
