An introduction to The Pink Carnation series


On my 24th birthday, my mom gave me a book. I should specify – one I didn’t ask for. (The best kind of book gifts.) She had gone into the bookstore, told the clerk that I liked historical fiction, and was recommended The Secret History of the Pink Carnation.

I remember worrying that it would be too chick-litty for my tastes. I can admit that there is a right time for a bodice-ripping romance (preferably one set in the Scottish highlands) but I wasn’t sure if that was what I wanted at that moment. Luckily, there was only some bodice unlacing and plenty of history and espionage.
I would secretly love to be a spy so anything related to espionage works for me, especially when the protagonist is the spy.
I completely loved The Pink Carnation and have faithfully purchased each subsequent book in the series. The sixth book has arrived and The Betrayal of the Blood Lily will be purchased today!
Huzzah!
