Diary of an Accidental Wallflower

Written by Jennifer McQuiston
Review by Troy Reed

Bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston offers the first book in her new Seduction Diaries series, Diary of an Accidental Wallflower, which is sure to delight readers of Regency romance. Miss Clare Westmore has her sights set on obtaining the next Duke of Harrington as her husband. She enters the Season full of promise, but her bright future takes a drastic turn when she sprains her ankle while feeding the ducks with her younger siblings. Clare is forced to sit in the wallflower line and watches in dismay as her so-called best friend sets her sights on the duke.

As Clare is sitting on the sidelines, she is approached by Dr. Daniel Merial, a handsome and intelligent man, who becomes her family’s doctor and helps Clare on her path to recovery. The attraction between them grows, and Dr. Merial is beloved by Clare’s younger siblings. As Clare and Daniel spend more time together, she realizes that her original thoughts regarding what love is and class distinction are not what they once were and that she needs to follow her heart to find her happiness.

McQuiston does an excellent job providing a storyline that is engaging and full of family secrets and has created main characters that are easy to love. I’m looking forward to the next in this new series.
