A Christmas love story isn't usually this heavy. And again Lillian and her issues ruined it almost completely. I liked Rafe Bowman a lot, but Hannah took her sweet time to show why I should like her.

Still, it would have been a lovely story if Lillian's insecurity regarding her husband hadn't reared its ugly head. There wasn't a single reason why that should be in a story like this. The moment that happened, even if it does not actually play any role whatsoever (to be fair), I lost my interest and just read through to get to the end.

The best part of the story is Rafe's letter.
If you are interested in snippets of Lillian, Daisy, Annabelle and Evie and their husbands, read this. Otherwise, you won't miss much if you skip it. ( )

Another enjoyable story involving relative of Wallflower women ... had me frequently reminiscing fun scenes from previous books

I ended up skimming most of this one after about page 30. I couldn't get into the storyline and Kleypas seemed to be extremely heavy handed with some of her foreshadowing. Plus, Hannah was annoying me to death with her self-righteous attitude in the beginning and then her martyr complex towards the end.

I also felt like a lot of the story between Hannah and Rafe was sacrificed in order for Kleypas to play catch-up with what some of the previous characters from the main books in the series have been doing since they hooked up with their respective partners. If you're a huge fan of this series, you'll probably enjoy this one. If you're not, I would skip it. ( )

While the actual quartet from the series is over this is a revisit to the now married Wallflowers and the brother of two of them. Rafe Bowman has made his fortune in the US, almost despite his father. Now he has been summoned to marry and the woman he is to marry is Natalie whose companion Hannah, her cousin, is proving to be a distraction.

It's fairly predictable, quite a quick read, and I found it quite enjoyable. The Christmas scenes made this book come alive. ( )

A wonderful revisting of all the Wallflowers and their husbands as well as a romance for a brother to boot. A wonderful holiday read. ( )

Book description
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.
