The daughter of a renown media mogul, Poppy Koslowski has her life turned upside down overnight when her father is indicted for a massive fraud that leads to the loss of her family’s fortune. In the wake of the scandal, Poppy moves to Paris at the behest of her aunt, the Countess Domel, who, unbeknownst to Poppy, intends to find a wealthy husband for her niece in order to ensure her future. Poppy, however, has her own dreams of finishing school and realizing her goal of becoming an award-winning journalist. When she meets Henri Olin, the passionate and seductive illegitimate son of one of France’s most powerful politicians, his political and social ideology introduces Poppy to a world very different from her own. Yet, Poppy ultimately learns that everything comes at a price, even love. After suffering a devastating loss, Poppy finds herself alone and virtually penniless, and is forced to make her way back to America to piece together the remnants of her life in New York City. There, she rediscovers her passion once again, only to be confronted with yet another life choice, one that will forever shape her destiny.
Throughout The Gilded Flower Trilogies and the Wildflowers Series, you’ve had a glimpse of Poppy’s many faces. Now, here’s your chance to see how her past influenced the person she’d become.

Review
Wild Poppy is the fourth book in the Wildflowers series. It is the first book I have read by Vivian Winslow. The story is good but I didn’t love it. There were parts where the point of view didn’t flow. What I mean by that is there were parts where it swap between points of view without warning and in the middle of a paragraph.
Other than that I really liked the story line. I didn’t like Poppy’s aunt because of her attitude towards marriage and life in general. However, I thought she added to the story and there were times where she surprised me. The setting is in the 1970s so that is something to keep in mind when reading this story. Overall, I enjoyed this book and will probably read at least one more book in this series.

About Vivian Winslow

Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job and her incurable wanderlust. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years.

New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of fashion, the arts and especially food. If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her eating at the newest restaurant in her beloved Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach.
