This was my introduction to The Pink Carnation series. I fell in love with Turnip & his dopey, well-meaning ways. Miss Dempsy's practicality is a nice balance to him, & he helps her to have some fun. I'm no historian, so I can't vouch for the accuracy of every detail of the book, but if you're looking to find yourself lost in a Christmas mystery and meeting a few new friends, this is a good book for that. It was a delightful escape into another time & place.
It would greatly depend on the friend. A friend that liked a steamier sort of story, I would. A friend that likes a more PG to PG-13 sort of romance that hints at something a little more, not a chance. I don't care how much I liked the characters.
I liked the characters, but I think I would have preferred a bit more dialogue. At times, it seemed there was as much sex as storyline.
Probably not, but on a lazy weekend I might watch it on TV if it were to air.
This wasn't my cup of tea. I prefer a bit more story line/dialogue to my book. That being said, I did like the characters a lot. I find myself wanting to know more about the rest of the Sullivan clan. Maybe when I'm in the mood for a steamy romance, I'll check out another one of Bella's books.
What's not to love? In less than 30 min, I loved Jane. She's funny, sarcastic, irreverent & wouldn't be afraid to point out my spelling mistakes or misuse of words. Besides, she loves Jane Austen. Not even half way trough this first book, I was downloading the next two. I'm usually not a fan of vampire books, but the humor & characters in this story are wonderful.
Amanda Ronconi was a good fit for Jane. Her timing is great & has a nice dry voice for the sarcastic moments which are every few seconds.
Lots & lots of laughing throughout the book.
I recommend them to anyone who enjoys a quick whit, bad puns, redneck jokes & has a dark sense of humor.
This isn't my favorite book in the series, but it is a nice story about two lovable characters & their attempts at finding love. There is a little sword-play, some silly insults, lots of jabs at wardrobe choices, and of course some time travel. If you enjoy that sort of romance, then this book is for you. As with any of Kurland's other books, I love the story. I already feel I know the characters from previous books and I'm happy to hear their individual tales. I suppose there isn't much I don't like about this series of books, other than there aren't enough available through audible.
It looks as if Robin might actually be getting used to the idea of paranormal oddities. He has some fun with his visitors this time around.
Yes, I would & have before as well. I would just make sure it's almost entirely a cast of British characters. In this book, she didn't distinguish the Americans from the Brits. It was difficult to listen to Peaches, Tess & even Zachary speaking with distinctive English accents. It got on my nerves a bit, but it's still an excellent book.
As with most Kurland's books, this is again PG to PG-13. If you're looking for lots of bedroom action, you might want to keep looking.
Absolutely! I think this is my favorite Virgin River book so far. There are just so many things to enjoy about it.
Rosie. She is such a gem in this story.
So many to choose from. It would definately involve Shawn. It's a toss up between the scene he meets Franci in the grocery store and the first day he spends with Rosie. I don't want to give details & spoil the fun for anyone. I found myself laughing out loud in both of those.
Yes, lots of laughter,but it is still well rounded, like most of Carr's books.
