The Mischief of the Mistletoe (2010)
language
English
4.02 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This one is just laugh out loud funny. It is more fittingly placed at the same time as Night Jasmine as the events are centered around the Christmas house party at Girdlings. However, this one is told from the point of view of two minor characters in that book - Arabella Dempsey ...

review 1: I discovered earlier this summer that I had not yet read the 10th book in Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series, which surprisingly had been published last summer. When I realized that the main character in this book was Ms. Gwen, the Pink Carnation's second-in-command, I raced t...
The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla (2014)
language
English

review 1: This book takes places mostly in 1806 with a few brief jumps to 2004 and the Eloise storyline. Back in 1806 the main character, Sally, is downright spunky and her growing relationship with Lucien, the Duke of Belliston includes mystery and is funny and charming. There was almos...
The Orchid Affair (2011)

English

review 1: This is #8 in the Pink Carnation series. I had heard of the series and was able to pick up a used copy and was glad I did. Historical fiction and romance are my favorite genres and this story encompasses both. Laura Grey poses as a governess in France after attending the Selwi...
The Ashford Affair (2013)
language
English

review 1: While I did enjoy this and I do not regret reading it, I got really tired of Clemmie's SHOCK AND HORROR at everything involving her family. It got very overwrought and tiring, especially when there really wasn't anything too shocking and horrifying. If some of her family member...
The Temptation of the Night Jasmine (2009)
language
English

review 1: Genre: Regency RomanceI liked the conceit of this novel, that the overly innocent and romantic (and rather neglected) Lady Charlotte Landsdowne formed a tendre for the unexpected Robert, Duke of Dovedale as a child when he was very kind to her during the uproar of her father's de...

review 1: Fan favourite and very bad poet, Augustus Whittlesby gets his own chance at romance in this ninth installment of the alternate history series. He is matched with the American widow Emma Morris Delagardie. Friends with Napoleon's stepdaughter, Emma has access to the highest eche...
Ashford Park (2013)

review 1: I loved the mystery in this book, which spanned several time periods and generations. In 1999, Clementine Evans learns that she has a long-lost relative named Bea. The woman was her Granny Addie's cousin, and apparently Clemmie looks a lot like her. But why has nobody ever mentio...
Away in a Manger: A Very Turnip Wedding Night (2000)
language
English

review 1: 3.5 starsCute short scene set at the end of The Mischief of the Mistletoe as a result of plea for readers for a love scene for Turnip. I've never read any of Willig's work before but this story was pretty cute. The cover was designed by a member of the Bitchery (Smart Bitches Tr...

review 1: After falling in love with Amy Balcourt (in the Secret History of the Pink Carnation), Lord Richard Selwick was forced to give up his identity as the Purple Gentian and settle for life as a headmaster of a school for spies. Amy, wracked with guilt for her part in his unmasking a...
The Betrayal of the Blood Lily (2010)
language

review 1: This book's adventure was a particularly good yarn. More adventure, more moving parts (it read better the second time when I had a firmer grasp of who was doing what for whom). Overall a great read, but it did come at the cost of the main characters. Alex is woefully underdevelop...
That Summer (2014)
language
English

review 1: This was my first Willig book as a stand-alone. I have loved her Pink Carnation series and was interested to see how the stand alone would do. I like that she framed the story in the same way she does her other books with the two different plots in the different time periods. ...
Ivy & Intrigue: A Very Selwick Christmas (2011)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Some novellas are just baby novels, and some are outsized short stories. Unfortunately this was one of the latter, and so my expectations were a mismatch for what this actually was -- a short, mostly-fluffy story which had a lot less actual plot or emotional torque than the summa...
Two L (2000)
language
English
3.15 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I didn't like this and I'm kind of sorry I paid for it. I know it's supposed to be a retelling of Measure for Measure, but never having read that I felt no special love or impetus to keep reading. My biggest issue was the way the people kept talking in law school rhetoric. Maybe ...
