It Happened One Autumn: A Review

It Happened One Autumn (Wallflowers, #2)It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I tried this book once before and I couldn't get into it. After reading 'Secrets of a Summer' I found Lillian and Westcliff to be so dynamically hilarious I had to take another look and I'm not sorry I did. I could relate a lot to Lillian. She is one of the few historical female leads I have been able to really get behind due to her unconquerable spirit and sharp wit.

Lillian is the next Wallflower in line and it doesn't start well. From playing Rounders with some service boys to arguing openly with Lord Westcliff, it doesn't appear that anyone else Marcus Westcliff himself would ever propose to her. Thankfully that doesn't get Miss Lillian Bowman down.

Despite Westcliff's apparent charm, his male egotistical 'I'm the Lord and Master' attitude got under my skin. I was tickled pink that Lillian didn't back down or let him get away with it without a thorough tongue lashing. I cheered her on with several 'You go girl!'s. My husband must have thought I was nuts.

All in all I loved this story. Kleypas, once again, shines with colorful characters, humorous scenes, and lovely steamy scenes that I can't seem to get enough of. I am kind of happy that she didn't kill St. Vincent since I adore him in 'Devil in Winter'.
