Editorial Reviews

[This] sparkling series continues to elevate the Regency romance genre. Kirkus Reviews
“The latest in the Pink Carnation series is a delightfully eerie Halloween book that combines all of the suspense of the spy series with the era’s fascination with the supernatural. Willig’s writing is witty and smart, and her addictive series sparkles with lively dialogue, intelligent characters, and great plotting, which is why readers keep coming back for more. Willig represents the Regency romantic mystery at its best.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
Jane Austen for the modern girl. New York Times Bestselling Author Christina Dodd
Full of history…plenty of romance. New York Daily News
“Kate Reading’s performance of this eleventh Pink Carnation installment showcases her clever use of accents, inflections, and perfectly timed wit…Reading brings the historic tale to life with her staid accent and droll wit, reveling in the gothic atmosphere and growing romantic tension between Sally and Lucien. She also brings energy and charm to the modern-day romance of doctoral student Eloisa and her British lover, Colin, whose narrative weaves through the historic plot. Listeners will delight in Reading’s fully realized characters and immersive narration.” AudioFile
“The penultimate entry in Willig’s popular Pink Carnation series focuses on Sally Fitzhugh, younger sister of the lovably bumbling Turnip, and Lucien, the dashing Duke of Belliston, who has returned to England after a twelve-year absence only to find rumors swirling fast and furious about his time away…Once again, Willig doles out a completely delightful confection of romance and intrigue sure to please her many fans and leave them breathlessly anticipating the Pink Carnation’s final adventure.” Booklist
