Framed once again by the research and relationship trials of graduate student Eloise Kelly, the Night Jasmine opens after Eloise and her new-beau Colin have been together for three months. A week-long romantic getaway to Colin's home in Surrey, not to mention his library's inexhaustible cache of historical archives, leads Eloise to a new discovery in her study of the aristocratic spy, the Pink Carnation - a plot involving french spies (naturally), betrayal of a king, and the infamous Hellfire Club.
Enter Lady Charlotte Lansdowne and Robert, the Duke of Dovedale, the real stars of this Carnation installment. Robert, newly home from a decade long stint in India, is on the trail of his mentor's murderer, but is unprepared for both the attraction he feels for the bookish Charlotte (a very, very distant cousin) and the real forces at work in his friend's death.
Like the other Pink Carnation books, the mystery here is well plotted out and the excitement high enough to keep the pages flying well into the night. The true strength lies within the romance of Robert & Charlotte, however. Both characters show very strong growth over the course of the book: Charlotte must deal with her realization that real life is not quite how it is in books (which can be a good a thing), and Robert has to grapple with not only his dubious past, but that of his father.Read more ›
Wonderful story. One of the best of the series. The audio version was not my favourite.
Although Ms. Willig took some liberties with the storyline in Night Jasmine, even as a history buff I did not feel that these liberties were out of line. I would rate this novel three out of five stars, because even though it didn't draw me in as much as the first three did, I was still interested enough to enjoy reading it. I will definitely keep reading the series and simply hope that in the future, her characters revert back to being as well portrayed as they were in Pink Carnation, Black Tulip, and Emerald Ring.
