Pink Carnation series, so this book kicked that desire to read book two into overdrive! I liked how the author wove Jane Austen into the story. It was entirely plausible and it fit perfectly. The Yuletide adventure was sheer fun and I didn't like that I had to say goodbye to the characters when this book ended!! I got this book from Dutton Publishing. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction and a well-written book that engages the reader from the very first page!!! If you haven't read any of the books from the Pink Carnation series, not to fear, this can be a stand-alone read without any problems. Especially because the author fills you in on the characters with a little guide in the back. This doesn't have to be read during the holidays either....it's pure fun during Christmas or not!!!!
I rated it 4/5
