Publisher's Summary

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.

Could do with a good edit

It seemed to go on and on with Daisy dissecting the same arguments ad nausea until I thought Flynn would be better off to just move on. Also, reading about how horrid the toffs were to servants and those not in their social class, the street thugs, the selling of children and parents dropping them off at child brothels, Earls e. g. frittering away fortunes and selling their daughters is making me unhappy with England and especially the horror of living in a monarchist government and society. From the sea captains to the creepy priest who stole money from a poor child and spent it on booze and didn’t tell him his whole family was dead, to the hard hearts of nearly everyone in this series I found the books long and drawn out with little joy. Then after all they have had to endure and overcome they suddenly jump into page after page of sexual content. Making the characters behavior confusing for an otherwise PG book. The author should note that a little goes a long way and becomes ridiculous after a while. I couldn’t wait for this book to be over. I liked that the books had good plots and likable main characters with good scene set ups and the narrator was very good.

Not your regular Regency romance

Daisy is a fun, stubborn, lovable character. Flynn is everyone's dream man in secret. Lady Beatrice is the wise aunt we all wish we had.

Lovely

I enjoyed this 4th novel in the series. Daisy wasn’t my favorite character but it was still a well written novel with great narration. I’m hoping eventually to have a 5th novel involving Ashton, the 4th business partner.

Entertaining and lovely!

Loved the story! Altough I quite enjoyed the first of the series, this one was my favorite. Lady Beatrice is an amazing character and the narrator does her justice. By that reason alone it's well worth the listening. Very entertaining and feel good story!

Enjoyable end to a series

This was my favorite story of the seasons bride series by Anne Gracie. I enjoyed them all, but this was particularly satisfying because it wrapped up all the loose ends.
I had a hard time with Daisy’s harsh accent, but it smooths out as the story goes on. Don’t let that get in the way of enjoying the story.

Excellent Story

I truly enjoyed this book. It was funny, sad, happy, and as expected, full of love. I really liked the self discovery the two major characters went through. All in all, a delightful story, one that I know I will read again.

Absolutely lovely

Once again Anne Gracie and Alison Larkin deliver a lovely bit of entertainment. A bit too much sex for my old fashioned prudish taste but not so much that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy the story and it’s performance. You can’t help but love Flynn. Highly recommended.

Skip book three and proceed to this one!

What did you like most about The Summer Bride?

How everything was so nicely wrapped up.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The butler, he was just wonderful through the whole series.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This series should be rerecorded with a better narrator. She just does mispronounce too often and can not do male voices even if her life depended on it.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Never have any great answer to this question.

Any additional comments?

PIty about the narrator, but I enjoyed the series but would have wished to have skipped book three.
