The secret history of the Pink Carnation ~ Lauren Willig

Secret History of the Pink Carnation

This was a fun book to read and had the added advantage of making me want to learn more about the Napoleonic era, a time that's never really intrigued me too much before. I love historical novels because there is always something new to learn while still getting to read a wonderful story. I appreciated the historical notes at the back of the book too, showing what was true and what was invented. Always very helpful, lest we walk away with false notions. And of course, who doesn't love a good spy story? I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. The only downfall is there are some racy scenes, something I was not expecting. Romance? Yes. Detailed description? No. Oh well, I guess one can't have everything.
