November 30, 2008 The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig
Well, I don't think I'll have the last published book in the Pink Carnation series by tonight as I have just finished this one, but it was a valiant effort. AND by the time I finish Crimson Rose, I will have met last year's total books read with a month left to go.
On to this book. Another great trip into the Pink Carnation universe, both for narrator Eloise's potential romance with Colin and for two more nineteenth-century English society/league of spies dwellers. I was a little annoyed at the beginning of Letty and Geoff's "romance" because it seemed like the misunderstanding was being deliberately misunderstood, but perhaps, I am just looking at it like a 21st century woman instead of in its "historical" context.
Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable read and I'm desperate to get into the next book. I'm not sure how I'm going to wait until January once I finished that one!
