From England to India

Series: Pink Carnation #6
Going into this book I was really excited that it takes place in India. I can't think of another book I've read about India, and I was really looking forward to being transported. Except while it was clear that the story was in India, I didn't quite feel like I was there myself.
I'm not sure why, because all the details where there that should have made it happen. I think it's more that it's hard for me to picture India, so I couldn't quite get a clear picture. Even so, the parts of India I got to experience I really did enjoy.
I was much happier with the modern day story line this time. It still wasn't my favorite of the series, but I at least didn't cringe through the modern day chapters.
Similar to the last book, the Pink Carnation doesn't appear, which makes me wonder when she'll be back. There was still a mystery which I did enjoy, more than a lot of the others. Of course there was a love story too, even knowing that this books heroine starts off married. I wasn't quite sure how that would work, but when it happened it wasn't too much of a surprise.
Once again, upon finishing a book in this series I'm really excited for the next. This one is finally about Turnip” Fitzhugh which will be interesting, although what I'm most excited about is that it's a Christmas book.
