    Description

    The Wallflowers

    Four young ladies at the side of the ballroom make a pact to help each other find husbands...no matter what it takes

    Proud and beautiful Annabelle Peyton could have her pick of suitors - if only she had a dowry. Her family is on the brink of disaster, and the only way Annabelle can save them is to marry a wealthy man. Unfortunately her most persistent admirer is the brash Simon Hunt, a handsome and ambitious entrepreneur who wants her as his mistress. 

    Annabelle is determined to resist Simon's wicked propositions, but she can't deny her attraction to the boldly seductive rogue, any more than he can resist the challenge she presents. As they try to outmaneuver each other, they find themselves surrendering to a love more powerful than they could have ever imagined. But fate may have other plans - and it will take all of Annabelle's courage to face a peril that could destroy everything she holds dear. 

    This edition of Secrets of a Summer Night contains an altered version of the content that appeared in the original 2004 edition.

    I couldn’t bear to listen any longer

    First of all, let me say that I LOVE the Wallflower series. I originally read (actually read) the books. I am a Lisa Kleypas fan and have read many books by her. I was looking for something to listen to while driving, and since it had been years since I read these, I downloaded this one to enjoy. I may have made it to the 4th chapter but couldn’t handle the narrator anymore. I’m a little spoiled by narrators like Jim Dale and Saskia Maaleveld whose character voices are wonderful. I am now going to have to pull my book down to finish the story because I won’t be listening to it.

    Abridged version

    I like the story and have read the book but am rather disappointed with this audiobook because it skips parts of the book all throughout the reading. It skipped the prologue, combined a couple scenes and edited several others. It’s an abridged version but doesn’t claim it in the description.

    Love the Wallflowers

    I truly enjoyed the alliance of the Wallflowers. It was great to see their bond form, develop, and succeed. The romance between Anabelle and Simon is believable. I do like when a historical romance novel takes us into the couples married life which this novel does. I find that what happens after the heroine and hero marry to be even more entertaining than their falling in love story, and seldom do we get that. Let’s face it, a marriage ceremony hardly makes a HEA. Here, we do get to see how the marriage evolves. I wish that the story of Mr. and Mrs. Hunt would continue, for they are a great couple; and, saying goodbye to them seems wrong. Nonetheless, this is a good start to the stories of the Wallflowers. I am happy for the time I spend with them.

    VERY disappointing!!!

    I purchased this title in Audible but now wanted to reread it. I was astonished when I was told that I had to re-purchase this title as Ms. Kleypas had “altered” it, and my original purchase had been removed from my library!! However, if there were any alterations, they were not evident and certainly not worth the price of a double purchase. I am so disappointed when money seems to be more important to an author’s publisher than honoring a fan’s previous purchases. (I’m doing Ms. Kleypas the favor of believing she had nothing to do with this.)

    So much potential...

    Loved the supporting characters.

    Book was off to a good start, but then took a steady, fast-paced nose dive.

    There is zero character development. I just did not care about the main characters at all.

    Love this story in its original form

    Love this book series and its characters. I didn’t like the revision as much as the original, but it’s still one of my favorite by Lisa Kleypas. I’m also a big fan of MJ Wells narrations.

    slow slow slow, boring and boring

    what a boring, slow, horrible book. I have listened to so many, this is bar far the worst. I pushed myself to keep going, wasted a credit, I gave up on chapter 19 . horrible dragged on, boring book I have listened to.

    Loved it!

    Simon’s character was just so perfect and Annabelle was just straight out annoying, not just if she had other qualities except being pretty. I’m not sure that the reason of being a wallflower was credible but all in all the story was good because Simon was so excellent - the declaration at the end was heart melting

    Enjoyable

    Loved this first book in the Wallflower series. Can't wait to listen to the rest in the series. Enjoyed the characters and looking forward to each of the girls finding their true love.

    Good But...,,

    I inadvertently read book 3 of the series first. It's hilarious & one of the best books I've ever read. There was a lot more telling & description in this book that bogged the story down. Specifically, the rounders scene. The scene was funny but it took too long. All we needed to know is how to play the game & few bits of them playing. But it went on so long I fast forwarded some of it.

    Kleypas is a skilled writer who wound everything up at the end. There were no loose ends. Again, the description at warehouse went long & I forwarded through it. The action part was perfect.

    I wasn't a fan of the reader. Unfortunately, that impacts the overall feel. Some parts the reader did well on. But the narrator potions (and there were a lot) didn't sit well with me. Voice seemed, drab & bored. Hate saying that cause no way can I do what she does.

    Overall, you really can't go too wrong with a Lisa Kleypas book. And the reader likely does well in other stories.

    Beautiful Start of a New Series

    I loved the friendship that sparked between those so different women most! It was quite obvious who Annabelle would be marrying in the end and at some point I was a bit confused when they had finally admitted to their mutual desire of each other and there were still two hours left. But that was quickly explained and I must admit much needed especially for the continuation of the series.
