I m glad to see Willig getting back to a espionage heavy plot I thought the political intrigue here was one of her best she notes at the end that it is based on real events and characters and I think that approach worked well for her

Igating a suspected Royalist plot to unseat Bonaparte and Laura's mission is to report any suspicious findings At first the job is as lively as Latin textbooks and knitting but Laura begins to notice strange behavior from Jaouen secret meetings and odd comings and goings As Laura edges herself closer to her employer she makes a shocking discovery and is surprised to learn that she has far in. This was much MUCH better than the last couple of Carnation books I don t even think I really remember those I must have blocked them out Jane actually shows up and the focus is back on FranceEngland which makes much sense since I doubt the Secret Carnation controlled espionage on every continentAnyway this one was a bit mature in terms of character both Laura and Andre are in their 30s and I felt that it was also less frivolous than previous installments The romance bloomed slowly and the spy elements made sense although I m still not convinced of Andre s motives My only disappointment is the modern section which just seems to drag without purpose I would like it better if that story just framed the other the interruptions began to get tedious Still it was a welcome relief to have the Carnation series back into fighting shape
