Read ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ç Lauren Willig Free download ↠ The Betrayal of the Blood Lily ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB A New York Times extended list bestseller in hardcover the sensational sixth book in the national bestselling Pink Carnation series Whisked away to nineteenth century India Penelope Deveraux plunges into the court intrig. SPOILER ALERT I ve really liked Willig s previous books however guiltily and wanted to like this one too but I dislike being put in the position of rooting for a character to commit adultery however unhappy the circumstances of her marriage Others might not struggle with that but it ultimately left me with a sadder feeling about the book than her other novels I also felt like this was one of her weaker stories narratively The spy aspect of the plot seems far contrived with this book than the others although the Indian setting and depiction of 19th century British life there mostly made up for it While I don t doubt that there was some historical veracity to some of the schemes she describes I found them poorly explained hard to follow and generally less urgent or persuasively dire than the nefarities and schemes to be foiled in her previous books Finally not to pile on but this book s dialogue isn t as witty as her previous books In some ways I wonder if her inspiration for the series is petering out a bit Having read all six Pink novels I think the one set in Ireland 3 is still my favorite

Read ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ç Lauren Willig Free download ↠ The Betrayal of the Blood Lily ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Tain Alex Reid With danger looming from local warlords treacherous court officials and French spies Alex and Penelope may be all that stand in the way of a plot designed to rock the very foundations of the British Empire. This book reminds me why I like Willig s writing so much The Pink Carnation universe has gotten rather large by this point but her characters all seem so very different In some series the author s leads can fall into a particular type where Willig s all speak in uniue voicesIn this installment Penelope Staines has been essentially forced into marriage an unhappy one as it turns out and banished to India with her husband where he has a diplomatic assignment of sorts in Hyderabad Captain Alex Reid is an officer s son and after growing up in India has followed in his father s footsteps He s very down to earth and sensible and has little patience for his current job of escorting ignorant aristocrats to HyderabadGiven the rules of society at the time the growing attraction between Penelope and Alex is very problematic and the fact that most readers know what will have to happen for these two to ever get together does cast something of a pall over the story And yet this storyline really lets readers understand Penelope than in previous books She has always been high spirited and has often gotten herself into scrapes or made a subject of gossip However in this book the author explores her motivations and this made me like her much The characters really make this book and I did enjoy learning about some areas of history with which I wasn t very familiar This is not an India is exotic and there are exotic sexytimes to be had here kind of romantic novel The author devotes uite a bit of time to making sure readers understand that India is a country with a large number of different languages and traditions and while there aren t any big infodumps there are plenty of references to the historical period including some of the problematic elements such as the racist treatment of Indian and Anglo Indian people

After the fifth Pink Carnation book I kind of felt like I needed a little break from the Pink Carnation series And by little break I mean like five yearsthats how long it s been since I read one of the Pink Carnation booksI love the series as a whole but the last book in the series that I read just left me a little wanting in the uniueness categorySo I abandoned it in favor of other books though I always knew that someday I would come back to it because lets face it I am in love with this series but I needed little time to step away from it and come back to it in order to love itGranted five years seems excessive but it happened eventuallyI picked up The English Wife also by Lauren Willig though it is not connected to the Pink Carnation books I easily fell in love with her writing and story in The English Wife So much so that I was reminded why I love the Pink Carnation bookssuperb story telling So I picked up The Betrayal of the Blood Lily and went to townAs I ve mentioned before in my other reviews of the series Willig has a kind of formula that she uses in her Pink Carnation seriesstrong aristocratic lady meets stubborn dashing bachelor in tights and they blunder through espionage 101 and ultimately end up having a HEA While it s formulaic it doesn t ring false for Willig because she always comes up with memorable and uniue charactersI never liked Penelope in the other books She was kind of the resident skank She was reckless and impulsive and I just wasn t really into her however I was interested to see how her romance was going to play out in this book Could Willig convince me that she was able to find true love based on what I had seen of her in the other booksThe short answer is yesI loved how Willig took the classic romance troupe and kind of made an anti romance of sorts When we meet Penelope she is married to Freddy whose she was forced into a marriage with back in the fifth book I believeFreddy is positively useless and a complete jack ass In the fifth book Charlotte had said that maybe the marriage and removal to India would be the making of their marriage so I thought that this book would be about them coming together but it was far from that I literally couldn t stand Freddy by the end of the first chapter He was irritating useless and puffed up well above his station I felt so bad for Penelope but at the same time I wasn t completely sorry for herThen we have Captain Alex Reid Straight laced and noble A man who can hardly stand the sight of Freddy It became rather apparent that Penelope had designs on Alex but as a noble officer he was inclined to pass on that situation However against his better judgement he finds himself being won over by PenelopeI agree with Collin s great aunt s opinion of Penelope s storyit s the most tragic Penelope is so impulsive and self destructive at times that is boarders on disastrous I loved how that played out in the developing romance between Alex and Penelope It made for a completely different approach to romance than in some of the other Pink Carnation books In this book Penelope is very married and Alex is almost too noble when it comes to respecting women Slowly I was just as won over as Alex and I appreciated the uniue trope in this book I didn t find the adultery aspect distasteful at all though others might not agreeThe only thing that I thought distracted from this novel was the Indian history All the other Pink Carnation books are set in England The last book s hero was from India but it was still set in England so the landscape and politics were familiar In this book that is not the case I had a hard time following or appreciating the politics in India and basically the entire setting didn t do a whole lot for me It should have been this exotic and uniue land but I felt like the setting was under utilized I was interested in the romance than anything else and as far as I can tell it was only set here to set up future books and characters In my opinion this could have been set in England as well but I guess if Willig wanted to give readers a break from the Western politics then India seemed like the next logical settingOver all this was a good book and I was reading well into the night Even if I didn t think it was as good as some of the others in the series I still enjoyed it enough to start the next book immediately after closing the cover on this oneSee my full review here
