Read in September, 2009

But really more like 4.5 stars...we really need half stars on here. Anyway, the sixth installment of the Pink Carnation series does not disappoint and I think it might even get more new readers, seeing as it is set in India and does not rely overly heavily on past events. I also really enjoy Penelope as a heroine and with her starting out the book already married to a man she doesn't love we are in a far different position that previous novels. Instead of an innocent happy virginal character, we have someone a little flirty and a little bitter and very much taken. Of course there are spies and intrigues, but it's the witty banter and interaction between Penelope and Alex Reid (the "hero") that make this book great. Plus India, very exciting and exotic compared to England, Ireland or France. Only problem is...now that I've read it I want another and this one isn't even technically out till January!!!

Also I'm now giving away this book on my blog:http://strange-and-random-happenstanc...
