Harvard Grad student Eloise is still living in London snd pining over Colin Selwick whose aunt allowed her access to Napoleonic era family archives. Eloise is still searching for information on female spies of that era. In her searches she came across Letty Alsworthy. Letty's sister was being courted by a viscount who worked for the British War Office. However, Letty got wind of her sister's elopement plans, and tries to stop them in order to save her family from societal disgrace. In the attempt to stop her sister, Letty is kidnapped, unwillingly married, and takes a boat to Ireland chasing after her run away new husband. In doing so, Letty finds herself smack in the middle of the planning of an Irish revolt, French spies, and the league of the Pink Carnation, the successful British spy.

This was an ok read once the action picked up. However, I can do without all the romantic angst. The author does a nice job in her descriptions of the Napoleonic era society though. ( )

First off, this book is way outside the zone of books that I normally read. I enjoyed the historical setting (1803 Ireland/London) and the characters. I really liked the development of the characters as well. The romance in this story was not off-putting or out of place and the characters always kept their heads when romantic moods struck them. They got understandably distracted a few times, but that was just realistic instead of having them completely ignore what had to be done instead.

This series is part The Scarlet Pimpernel and part romance novel. I wish it were MORE Scarlet Pimpernel and LESS romance novel, but what can you do?

Fun little women-spy romp around London and Ireland. ( )

After the fun, rollicking pace of the first two books in Willig's Pink Carnation series, this third installment had more of a muted build to the plot lines, the intrigue and the romance. The story did improve - especially with Willig bringing Jane and Gwen back as part of the main cast of characters for this latest espionage intrigue in Ireland. The forthright "call it like she sees it" Gwen is one of my favorite characters.... such a hoot and love how she brandishes her parasol and her tongue with barbed, non-nonsense acidity. Willig has a keen eye for drawing her historical heroines as intelligent, witty and feisty individuals capable of holding their own against unwanted advances from both society rakes and devious, deadly spies. I really like how each installment so far has involved a different "couple" to represent the historical espionage and romance part of the story, while the present day story consistently follows the "hopefully" budding romance between Eloise and Colin.

Another delightful adventure in 1800's Europe paired with a charming modern day chick-lit romance. ( )
