From the award-winning author of The Spring Bride comes the conclusion to the quartet about four sisters, four weddings, and a bride for every season...
Fiercely independent Daisy Chance has a dream and it doesn't involve marriage or babies (or being under any man's thumb). Raised in poverty, she has a passion and a talent for making beautiful clothes. Daisy aims to become the finest dressmaker in London.
Dashing Irishman Patrick Flynn is wealthy and ambitious, and has entered society to find an aristocratic bride. Instead, he finds himself growing increasingly attracted to the headstrong, clever and outspoken Daisy. She's wrong in every way, except the way she sets his heart racing.
However, when Flynn proposes marriage, Daisy refuses. She won't give up her hard-won independence. Besides, she doesn't want to join the fine ladies of society, she wants to dress them. She might, however, consider becoming Flynn's secret mistress. . .
But Flynn wants a wife, not a mistress, and when Flynn sets his heart on something, nothing can stand in his way. .
This was such a cute read! It definitely made me all giggly and put a smile on face.
The last of the 4 Chance “sisters”, Daisy never intended to get married. Instead she wanted to be the top dressmaker of London. Flynn, our charmingly roguish buccaneer of a hero, wants to marry a aristocratic lady to help his standing. But gosh-darn they made the more adorablest couple.
“Something botherin’ you, sweetheart? I thought you liked flowers?”
“Don’t call me that!” I’m not your sweetheart!”
“Something botherin’ you, my little hedgehog?”
I love that Daisy and Flynn have a super wonderful friendship. You really get to see why they get along so well and there’s such cute banter. Romance wasn’t really in the picture for neither of them. But damn did I love it when Flynn had his moment of clarity and realized the perfect girl for him was there all along.
A friend who was also a lover?
He was a blind great eedjit.
Daisy was pretty determined to not marry, so it definitely took a lot of convincing. I did like that Daisy want to be independent and make something for herself, but I also felt bad for Flynn who kept feeling like he was second to her dress shop. But you gotta love a hero who doesn’t give up and just keeps chipping away.
“I might have lost the first round, but I’m not yet ready to throw in the towel.” He gave her a swift smile. “I’ll be back. I don’t give up that easy, Daisy-girl.”
Did I mention how much I adore Flynn?
“Thought you left already.”
He prowled towards her. “Forgot something.”
“What?” She looked around, but could see nothing left behind.
“This.” He took two long steps and hauled her into his arms.
Overall, this was a fun and sweet read. Who doesn’t love a sassy and passionate heroine and a swoony hero that’s determine to charm? This is the last book in the series, though you don’t need to read the previous one, we do get to see the other sisters and their guys, which is always fun. I will always love Freddie Hyphen-Hyphen, as Flynn likes to call him.
