Tis the season to get Pink! Lauren Willig’s beloved Pink Carnation series gets into the holiday spirit with this irresistible Regency Christmas caper.

Arabella Dempsey’s dear friend Jane Austen warned her against teaching. But Miss Climpson’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies seems the perfect place for Arabella to claim her independence while keeping an eye on her younger sisters nearby. Just before Christmas, she accepts a position at the quiet girls’ school in Bath, expecting to face nothing more exciting than conducting the annual Christmas recital. 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. But when he blunders into Miss Arabella Dempsey, it never occurs to him that she might be trouble. When Turnip and Arabella stumble upon a beautifully wrapped Christmas pudding with a cryptic message written in French—“Meet me at Farley Castle”—the unlikely vehicle for intrigue launches the pair on a Yuletide adventure that ranges from the Austens’ modest drawing room to the awe-inspiring estate of the Dukes of Dovedale, where the Dowager Duchess is hosting the most anticipated event of the year: an elaborate twelve-day Christmas celebration. Will they find poinsettias or peril, dancing or danger? Is it possible that the fate of the British Empire rests in Arabella and Turnip’s hands, in the form of a festive Christmas pudding?

    " My friend, knowing that I love books, picked this up for me for my birthday. I had never heard of the series nor the author, but I later found to my delight that it was written in a Jane Austen style, and I LOVE Jane Austen. Recently, I've been getting into Pride and Prejudice, and I adore that book, and I was pleased to find little mentions of Pride and Prejudice in Mischief of the Mistletoe such as Bingley and Darcy. And even the little Elizabeth statement. Mischief of the Mistletoe is a great book, and I am definitely going to look into the other books of the series :) "

    " I thought this was better than the last couple of Carnation books EXCEPT that I missed Eloise. "
