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. .

So What Did I Think Of The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie?

The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie was a fun enjoyable read for me. I liked how independent and bold Daisy was and how she knew who she was. It was great to see her differ from society’s rules and station and went for her dreams no matter how hard it was. Lynn was a nice hero for the story even though at first he was blinded by what and who he truly wanted and it didn’t take him long to figured it out. 

 
I enjoyed Flynn and Daisy’s relationship. Their friendship was so smooth and easy and they had a lot in common. Flynn was a self made man with a thriving business and Daisy was just beginning her clothing business, they were ultimately very like minded people. It was really nice to see their friendship grow into something more and by accident too. When Flynn realized he wanted more from Daisy but masked his intentions towards her while pursuing her it really brought along the drama and excitement to the story. 
 
Now I liked why Daisy refused him even though she really did want him and how Flynn ultimately changed her mind. It was great to see the journey of their relationship it was also nice to see Daisy’s journey of  building her clothing business, all the rivals she had to go through especially given the times and her past it really added depth to the story.  Overall I really liked reading The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie.
