Third in the Pink Carnation series.

Another enjoyable installment in the Pink Carnation series, focusing on the best friend of the heroes from the first two books. My primary complaint about this series continues to be the modern frame story - it breaks up the Regency-era action jarringly, and the characters aren't nearly as engaging. I'm totally willing to forgive this, though, since the historical storyline (which makes up the vast majority of the book) is so funny and witty and totally charming.

Letty Alsworthy is trying to prevent the elopement of her sister and the ensuing scandal that would follow, when she somehow ends up in her nightgown, in a carriage with Lord Pinchingdale, the man her fiance was supposed to elope with, thereby creating a bigger scandal. This forces them into a loveless marriage that creates even more scandal. And when Pinchingdale takes off to Ireland the day after the ceremony, Letty knows she has to follow him to avoid being the center of even more gossip. What she doesn't realize is that she is entering into the intrigues of the Pink Carnation, something for which she is ill prepared. Can she navigate through this new, confusing world of her own making?

The third book of the Pink Carnation is nowhere near as good as the first one, but it is still a fun read for fans of the series. The inevitable love scene is sweet, passionate and fulfilling. So very regency romance. A good read.

Lauren Willig's sense of humour adds a light touch to this third instalment in her entertaining series of enchanting historical spy novels. Looking forward to book number four.
