Delaney McFarland has figured out what to do with the exorbitant dowry her father has placed upon her. All she needs is the right man to help her with it. Unfortunately, one man, a very wrong man, keeps popping up in her radar and she might just have to deal with it.
This was a great read, especially if you want to do something while escaping the summer heat (ie. hiding in your room because it’s too hot to do anything but lounge about) since it’s quite a sweet and charming book. Delaney and Griffin were wonderfully adorable together and their coming together was interesting and humorous.
Finding Miss McFarland is the third book of the Wallflower Weddings series, and while it definitely reads as a standalone, I think I would’ve liked this one better had I read the first two. Mostly because the novel starts off very quickly, I think I was 40 pages into the novel and I wondered whether I missed anything. Again, the book can definitely be read by itself, but now I want to know what the scandal is all about with her friends. So I’ll probably get on that at some point Continue Reading. Anyway, on to the review!
Delaney McFarland has a large dowry and it’s such a ridiculous amount that the ton has made a mockery out of her about it. It doesn’t help that her debut was quite remarkable. In fact, it was so remarkable that she has decided to not be seen with a particular gentleman at any events. I thought how she did it was quite clever — and it’s one of the things I liked a lot about Delaney. I liked how caring and genuine she was. Sure, she was stubborn, and I wanted to shake her at times but it’s not too bad. She didn’t have the happiest of upbringings, so her reluctance to marry was justified.
Griffin Croft, on the other hand, I loved. I enjoyed how charming he was and I loved reading his interactions with his sisters. In fact, I really liked reading about his sisters. I wonder if there’s a series/book for them? I enjoyed his reaction when he realized that Delaney was purposefully evading him and what he did about it. I also liked how he really didn’t dilly-dally with his feelings, as men in historical novels tend to do. He’s just ugh, he was great.
Overall, Finding Miss McFarland was pretty light and entertaining. I wish there was more info about what happened with her mom and dad (it was quite vague) and you know, I wish Delaney found out/realized that her friends would probably not leave her just because she can’t sew to save her life. I just wanted Delaney to be happy with herself and her personal relationships while being in love, because that’s always great right?

About the Author
I fell in love with fairy tales and the romance behind happily ever after at a very young age. Like a lot of you, I tweaked the fables bit by bit in my imagination until they suited me perfectly. By the time I was eleven, a teacher encouraged me to start writing.
Throughout the years that followed, my teachers remained my most fervent supporters, giving me the tools I needed to continue my journey as a writer.
My husband and I have two teenage boys, who are heroes in their own right. For now, we live in a small Midwestern town near Lake Michigan…until a time in the future when a new adventure calls us to other shores.
I am currently working on my next novel, but I always enjoy hearing from my readers. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
