In this irresistible Regency Christmas caper, Arabella Dempsey accepts a position at a quiet girls' school in Bath, but she hardly imagines coming face to face with French aristocrats and international spies. Guest appearances by Dempsey's best friend Jane Austen and characters from previous installments of the Pink Carnation series round out the laugh-out-loud holiday-themed romance of intrigue.

Seventh in the Pink Carnation books.

One of the more enjoyable entries in the Pink Carnation series, a regular character by the name of "Turnip" finds and claims the love of his life. Involving Christmas puddings, a girls boarding school and a hunt for spies this is a light romantic adventure.

This is a very silly series, and this is possibly the most absurd installment yet, and yet I really enjoyed it. It takes Turnip, a bumbling character used primarily for comic relief in previous installments, and turns into a credible romantic lead without actually changing his character, which is a tricky feat to pull off. Turnip is still ridiculous and not the brightest bulb on your string of lights, but by the end of the book you totally believe that the heroine is in love with him. As a bonus, this one doesn't have the unnecessary modern day frame story, which was a nice break, as I find it pointless and irritating.

I've been enjoying the Pink Carnation series for a few years now. This is a cute Christmas story, featuring the affable Turnip Fitzhugh.

This story is a TREAT. And you get to know Turnip Fitzhugh like you've never. And like him, a lot! I will be re-reading this one for sure - that's how much I enjoyed it.

This light-hearted and fun novel will appeal to readers of the " Pink Carnation" series. It features Turnip Fitzhugh (usually a secondary comic character) in a feature role and schoolteacher Arabella Dempsey as his love interest. Several characters from past novels make appearances and we even get some up dates on their lives. (A baby--Really!!!) Turnip seems to be more simple good natured than-well----simple. Even Jane Austen appears as Arabella"s childhood friend. No updates on Eloise and Colin---that plotline is not even included. We do meet alot of "little sisters" - likely future heroines.
