Adult Review: Garden Intrigue

*the 8th books in Pink Carnation series*

Augustus Whittlesby has spent years as an undercover spy posing as a horrific poet. Now he must gain access to a private party thrown by Napoleon - where he's been told that there will be a test of a secret weapon.

Augustus's only way into the party is through Jane's friend Emma Morris Delagardie. She's creating a play and he's just the person to help her.

As they work on the play, he allows his mask to slip. He lets Emma see glimpses of the man instead of the poet.  He begins to see her as a woman and not a socialite.

Could this mission make him yearn for a normal life with Emma?

My Thoughts: I adore this series. I love the overlapping characters. I love the blend of the Napoleonic world with modern day England. I love the espionage world. It's simply a magical series. The Garden Intrigue shares the story of horrific poet Augustus Whittlesby - who is a nod to the Scarlet Pimpernel. I liked Augustus and his horrific poetry - but I loved seeing him through Emma's eyes as she discovers it's just a cover. I loved the walks in the garden. I enjoyed conversations about the secret weapon.  A charming, entertaining, and romantic addition to the series.

Cover Thoughts: LOVE it!
