    This is a review of the audiobook Kate Reading narrates the audiobook perfectly I can t believe this one is even better than the first in the Pink Carnation series.It s not easy to pull off a time warp book, running two timelines in parallel, but Ms Willig does it with aplomb Not only that, but this novel is really two genres historical romantic suspense with a ton of humor , and a contemporary chick lit romance It is witty and clever and sophisticated So much so, I had to This is a review of the audiobook Kate Reading narrates the audiobook perfectly I can t believe this one is even better than the first in the Pink Carnation series.It s not easy to pull off a time warp book, running two timelines in parallel, but Ms Willig does it with aplomb Not only that, but this novel is really two genres historical romantic suspense with a ton of humor , and a contemporary chick lit romance It is witty and clever and sophisticated So much so, I had to get the paperback, so I could actually read the words after I had already just listened to them Such a delight Sure, some scenes have been done before ad infinitum however, these are written so well, they are like a breath of fresh air And there is always a twist Making the buddy read I was in everfun Can t wait until we read the next P.S I could totally picture Cary Grant in the hero, Miles Dorrington s, role He is an actor who could get away with this degree of humor and sophistication Alas, Miles is a blond Adonis and I wouldn t dye a hair on Cary s head

    OK, you ve heard of the Scarlet Pimpernel and all that mess in France, right Well, the Pink Carnation picks up where the Pimpernel stopped due to the discovery of his identity At the same time in the story, but taking place in the present there is a grad student finding decedents of the Pink Carnation with letters from and about that time in history.If the story plot sounds complicated, it really isn t While it jumps around, pulling you from character to character, making you wonder who mig OK, you ve heard of the Scarlet Pimpernel and all that mess in France, right Well, the Pink Carnation picks up where the Pimpernel stopped due to the discovery of his identity At the same time in the story, but taking place in the present there is a grad student finding decedents of the Pink Carnation with letters from and about that time in history.If the story plot sounds complicated, it really isn t While it jumps around, pulling you from character to character, making you wonder who might be a spy, the real story centers around this complicated relationship and emotional dance between Henrietta and Miles Although you realize there is a spy story going on, the tension mainly focuses on the misunderstandings and social pressures between the two love birds.As with the last story, there is a good deal of romance involved in the story, but isn t developed until the later part of the novel In this particular installment, there seemed to be less storytelling done from the present, which I actually missedstrangely enough I have been curious about Eloise, and can sense that she has developed feelings for the man who s family owns the journals she is reading Honestly, I did want a bitfrom the present, and grew to care a littleabout our grad student For some reason, now that she has uncovered the story behind The Pink Carnation, I wanted to knowabout what Eloise was going to do with her story, and hope to getin the novels that follow I just ADORE this series and I can hardly wait for the next installment This second book leaves you with a bit of a cliffhanger with Eloise, and dropped Henrietta and Miles a bit, even though you knew they were all right and happy There is a certain playfulness to these stories that just makes me smile and laugh, and I enjoy following along to see how the spies will catch their enemy, and how their female spy love interest will help them These really are fun stories to follow as they unfold, and while you could probably read them individually I strongly suggest reading them in order Having knowledge of the previous story really allows you to dive in deep

    In my eyes, this is a mystery through and through I think some readers would classify this as chic lit because much of the story is written from a female point of view I guess an argument could even be made for calling this a romance However, whatever genre you choose to put this book in, you need to read it As usual, I never did figure out who the French spy was until the author spoon fed me the name Willig tells a story so well that I had four different suspects right up to the end.The In my eyes, this is a mystery through and through I think some readers would classify this as chic lit because much of the story is written from a female point of view I guess an argument could even be made for calling this a romance However, whatever genre you choose to put this book in, you need to read it As usual, I never did figure out who the French spy was until the author spoon fed me the name Willig tells a story so well that I had four different suspects right up to the end.The Masque of the Black Tulip is part of a series of spy mysteries set during Napoleon Bonaparte s rule of France Willig uses historical events as a basis for her stories, but if you aren t a history buff, it can actually sound like something that could have happened The story weaves fact and fiction so well together that the reader will easily be caught up in the suspense of that time in history Additionally, Willig s writing talent is apparent when you consider that she is coming at these stories from a contemporary historian s perspective This is the second in the series and I can t wait to read the next book

    A rollicking yarn, well told Willig s writing is a cut above many HR authors, but for me this is only a two star read for two reasons 1 Lauren Willig adopts the same approach to each of the Pink Carnation books there are two stories the main historical one, and a modern one where Eloise researches the historical story and slowly develops a relationship with Colin a descendant of the historical characters This approach really doesn t do it for me every time I get caught up in the A rollicking yarn, well told Willig s writing is a cut above many HR authors, but for me this is only a two star read for two reasons 1 Lauren Willig adopts the same approach to each of the Pink Carnation books there are two stories the main historical one, and a modern one where Eloise researches the historical story and slowly develops a relationship with Colin a descendant of the historical characters This approach really doesn t do it for me every time I get caught up in the main story, I m yanked back to soppy Eloise and Colin, whose story progresses at a snail s pace.2 the historical characters therefore have a very short time to make a mark, convince the reader of their characters and trot briskly though a technicolour plot There are some later stories where Willig pulls this off The Seduction of the Crimson Rose is a particular favourite of mine but TMotBT is not one of them

    Another excellent book from the author of The Secret History of the Pink Carnation I loved being sucked back into the world of flower named spies The book had romance, mystery, plenty of wit, and even a high speed carriage chase I also enjoy the interludes with Eloise, the modern day historian, doing research into these fascinating characters but I wish she and Colin s thing would move juuuust a bit faster.


  8. Rebekah Rebekah says:

    Such a delight to read Miles, although not the brightest bulb in the box, was such a funny pleasant guy to read about He was basically worthless as a spy but made up for it in being nice Hen was also hardly helpful She is kind of like Marguerite from the OG Scarlet Pimpernel in that she tries to help, gets caught, needs help to be rescued I did greatly enjoy Miles and Hen They were darling together The scene when they were catching the Black Tulip was seriously funny though.

    It s always been Miles and Henrietta Everyone but them knew it What good shit I can t write reviews for these books because it s just me sitting there as the jenny slate scream.jpg Anyway Lots of fun Richard not being happy about their compromising position was deeply hysterical after what he and Amy did.
