This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Veteran governess Laura Grey joins the Selwick Spy School expecting to find elaborate disguises and thrilling adventures in service to the spy known as the Pink Carnation. She hardly expects her first assignment to be serving as governess for the children of André Jaouen, right-hand man to Bonaparte's minister of police.
At first the job is as lively as Latin, but Laura begins to notice Jaouen's increasingly strange behavior. As Laura edges closer to her employer, she is surprised to learn that she has much in common with him. And Jaouen finds he's hired more than he's bargained for...
Having read all of the Pink Carnation series, this is the best out of the last 3 or 4. It seems more in keeping with the spy world created in the first few books, with a smart and resourceful heroine at it's core.
This series continues to be great!
I really enjoyed this latest installment in the series. The change of scenery to France was a nice switch, as was bringing the Pink Carnation back into the forefront of the action. The hero and heroine of the book had some nice backstory that gave the characters history and meaning in how they behaved and interacted. I think my only complaint was that the end seemed to come too quickly and everything got tied up too soon. And a little more Eloise and Colin would have been nice.
