A Pink Carnation Christmas

The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig
: October 28, 2010 by Dutton
Series: Pink Carnation #7
I really love this series, and once again this one is no exception! In some ways it feels a bit early to be reading Christmas books, although it is after Halloween and that's when holiday season is seems to be starting now. Even so, it isn't too over the top Christmas-y, but more that the holiday provides a backdrop to the story.

This book actually takes place at the same time of The Temptation of the Night Jasmine, which was an interesting take. You also get to check in with the couples from the last 5 books which was a pleasant surprise as well. Plus speaking of cameos, the famous historical character this time was Jane Austen, which I wasn't expecting, but so perfect.

This book is actually a tad bit different from the others in the series as there wasn't a modern day counterpart. In some ways I missed it, but I think part of that's only because I'm used to it being included. Especially since I don't feel like the book was lacking for not having it.

This is actually the fourth book of the series I've read this year and probably my favorite. I'm not sure if I'll have the chance to read anymore in 2015, but when I do I know it's one I'll have a lot of fun with once again!

  1. I read this in September or October but it didn't feel too Christmasy. I too missed the present-day story.
