I somehow managed not to post this here when I originally wrote it in April 2017Being a fan of friends to lovers stories The Wallflower Duchess sounded as though it would be right up my alley a fairly simple story about two long time friends and neighbours starting to see each other in a new light and falling in love That is in essence exactly what it is but I was less than enthralled by the execution the writing is uite disjointed in places and the central characters are barely two dimensional Neither of them made much of an impression on me making it impossible for me to really get invested in their rather lukewarm romanceEver since he was old enough to understand Lord Lionel heir to the Duke of Edgeworth knew what it meant to be a duke He has been raised to be mindful of his responsibilities for those who depend on him to display impeccable manners and good breeding at all times in short to be perfect But after he became the duke he began to realise that perhaps his father s insistence on perfection had removed him too far from the people in his charge Unfortunately however an accident when he ventured to move among his tenants to see what their lives were like led to Edgeworth Edge to his intimates of which there are not many being so badly burned on his legs that at one point his life was in jeopardy Upon his recovery he discovers that the accident and another recent life threatening incident in which he was thrown from his horse has somewhat altered his perspective on life He knows that his father had always intended him to marry Miss Abigail Hightower the younger daughter of their life long neighbours but secretly had always preferred the elder daughter Lily with whom he had sometimes played when they were children Two brushes with death mean that Edge isn t going to put off asking for her hand any longer and he does so in full confidence of his being acceptedBut Lily isn t going to fall into his arms so readily First of all she had no idea that Edge had any interest in her given that she believed he was destined for her sister and second of all she doesn t want to be married to as high profile a figure as a duke Lily has her own reasons for wanting to blend into the background and live a uiet life not least of which is her belief that she is illegitimate and her parents disastrous marriage which often led to scenes of high drama and histrionics on the part of her highly strung mother has most definitely given her a distaste for the institution which she insists is not for herEdge is not particularly upset by her refusal and calmly goes about the business of changing her mind his first step being to prove that the man she calls father really IS her father and that her illegitimacy was a cruel taunt made by her mother when her parents were in the midst of a particularly vitriolic row Lily finds it difficult to believe the truth and is naturally hurt at the discovery that even her own father hadn t bothered to disabuse her of her belief that she was the daughter of the local blacksmith With this barrier to her acceptance of Edge removed Lily does start to soften her attitude towards him and to allow herself to acknowledge the truth which is that she is deeply attracted to him and always has been His gentle persuasion gradually erodes her resistance to his suit and she agrees to marry him even though she is still keeping one rather large and important secret from him Unfortunately the uncovering of one secret leads to the uncovering of others one of which is like a slap in the face for Edge who had never envisaged that the woman he has loved for so long could effect such a betrayalWhat should have been a fairly simple hero in pursuit story of two childhood friends realising they belong together is sadly marred by the fact that the book is overly busy Lily comes from a difficult family her parents were forever arguing and when her mother eventually left it was relief Lily felt rather than pain Believing herself to be outside the family because she thought she was not her father s child Lily assumed the role of guardian to her younger sister and tried to protect her from the emotional fallout and the gossip while she decided that becoming emotionally involved with anyone would only lead to misery And while Edge s early life was settled than Lily s he also had to adjust to the fact that his family wasn t as perfect as he had believed it to be and now has to face up to what he now regards as a serious mistake in the way he dealt with the effect of the revelations that split his family apart The biggest problem with the book however is that the two central characters are very poorly defined in spite of all their emotional baggage Lily is a mass of insecurities who just seems to want to hide away all the time and Edge while clearly the product of enormous privilege is fairly bland There is almost zero chemistry between them in fact the first sex scene of two and they re both little than a paragraph really happens pretty much out of the blue in the sense that there is no emotional build up to it at all and no discussion of possible conseuences or even why they are going to bed togetherI also didn t find the writing style to be especially engaging at the beginning of the book in particular it s choppy in the way the author jumps from scene to scene without really telling me what was happening so I felt rather adrift for the first few chapters Things are hinted at and alluded to but not in a way that enabled me to get a firm grasp on either events or characters The second half works better and for all that Edge s character is underdeveloped I discovered him to be uite sweet in an awkward kind of way while Lily s insistence on believing she was like her mother was patently ridiculous and got very annoying very uicklyLily and Edge both had the potential to be interesting and attractive but lacked depth and were instead pretty much one note characters I didn t really warm to The number of plot elements introduced made the book perhaps a little too busy and this together with the lack of romantic chemistry and weak characterisation made The Wallflower Duchess a bit of a disappointment overall
