Mischief of the Mistletoe: A Pink Carnation Christmas
Mischief of the Mistletoe: A Pink Carnation Christmas | Lauren Willig
17 posts | 28 read | 12 to read
Despite her dear friend Jane Austen's warning against teaching, Arabella Dempsey accepts a position at a girls' school in Bath, just before Christmas. She hardly imagines coming face-to-face with French aristocrats and international spies.Reginald "Turnip" Fitzhugh-often mistaken for the elusive spy known as the Pink Carnation-has blundered into danger before. When Turnip and Arabella find their Christmas pudding yielding a cryptic message, they are launched on a Yuletide adventure. Will they find poinsettias-or peril?

A lovely old fashioned #romantsy in the tradition of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Jane Austen makes an appearance as the heroine ‘s BFF. The hero is called Turnip and reminds me of Bertie Wooster and Mr Bingley . Fun holiday reading . My friend‘s Instant Pot has it‘s own seat on the ferry.

Christy2318 I liked this one. Turnip is rather amusing. 2y
Dragon Thanks @Christy2318 , I haven‘t read any others in the series, but I get the feeling Turnip is a supporting character in a few of them. He made me smile 😀🐉 2y
Christy2318 It‘s a good series. Like many a series the middle books are the best. There is one book before Mischief of the Mistletoe where Turnip has a larger supporting role. His sister is a heroine in a later book. 2y
Dragon I was lucky to find this one at a library booksale, now I‘ll be looking for the others at the next sale 👍🐉 2y

This was a wonderful holiday romance! A hero nicknamed Turnip, the heroine's best friend is Jane Austen, Christmas puddings, and spies! I really must go back and read the entire Pink Carnation series. #romantsy #pinkcarnation

This was a fun Christmas read. I mean who doesn't love #romance, #spies and Christmas pudding? #pinkcarnation #laurenwillig #historicalfiction #christmas #read

SaraRosett I read it a few years ago. I always enjoy #Laurenwillig books. Does anyone else think the cover painting looks like Princess Diana...? 3y
tracy_anne8 Now that you mention it, it does look like her! I enjoy this series alot too and just finished the book after this one. 3y

Anyone else read more than 1 book at a time? started this one in September but couldn't get into the mindset. Now with Christmas around the corner, I'm ready to give it another go. #pinkcarnation #christmas #laurenwillig #doggie #historicalfiction #currentlyreading

Super fun historical fiction featuring Lord Turnip Fitzhugh (who was NOT nicknamed for his mental acuity). 😉

moranadatter Turnip's a sweetheart. 3y
raelaschoenherr I love this one! I knew him from the series and didn't think I'd enjoy a full book about him. I was happy to be proven very wrong! Time for a re-read this Christmas! 3y

I'm a day late, but I didn't think of it until today. Turnip Fitzhugh is the most perfect #dumbandbeautiful candidate! He started out as just a silly side character, but then Willing gave him a mystery and a romance and it was one of the sweetest and funniest stories in this series! His heroine's bittersweet, passed-over character type reminds me of Anne Elliot a little, which also helped :) I'm due for a re-read this Christmas! #octphotochallenge

What do you mean it's not Christmas? All of the Pink Carnation books are sweet but this one is sugary sweet with icing just what I'm in the mood for 😊

annahenke I didn't wait for Christmas to read this either! 3y
