manga :: Lisa Kleypas - The Wallflowers Series (review)

I've perused my copies of Lisa Kleypas' Wallflowers series of mangas and thought I would give my thoughts on them and also share a few scans from each manga.  Overall, I'm very pleased with my copies, sure they are adaptions and changes had to be made and events left out - but I do appreciate that even though each book was drawn by a different artist, there was a real effort to maintain consistency of character design though all the books.
