Publisher's Summary

In the final Pink Carnation novel from the New York Times best-selling author of The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla, Napoleon has occupied Lisbon, and Jane Wooliston, aka the Pink Carnation, teams up with a rogue agent to protect the escaped queen of Portugal.
Portugal, December 1807. Jack Reid, the British agent known as the Moonflower (formerly the French agent known as the Moonflower), has been stationed in Portugal and is awaiting his new contact. He does not expect to be paired with a woman - especially not the legendary Pink Carnation.
All of Portugal believes that the royal family departed for Brazil just before the French troops marched into Lisbon. Only the English government knows that mad 73-year-old Queen Maria was spirited away by a group of loyalists determined to rally a resistance. But as the French garrison scours the countryside, it's only a matter of time before she's found and taken.
It's up to Jane to find her first and ensure her safety. But she has no knowledge of Portugal or the language. Though she is loath to admit it, she needs the Moonflower. Operating alone has taught her to respect her own limitations. But she knows better than to show weakness around the Moonflower - an agent with a reputation for brilliance, a tendency toward insubordination, and a history of going rogue.

The Pink Carnation is not Totally Perfect

The Moonflower is not a totally imperfect.

Lauren Willig has allowed her readers to see beneath the serene mask and cold intelligence of England's dedicated spy, the Pink Carnation. It is also fun to see her forced to "take a road trip" on foot and by donkey with a fellow spy she doesn't trust. Reading about the two of them rubbing the edges off of their preconceptions, not to mention each other is fun.

It is a great way to tie up a series both in the eighteen hundreds and the present, but I still think the Moonflower's crossbow waving little sister deserves her own book.

great ending to series!

I hate to see the end of the Pink Series, but what a way to go. Jane and Jack ( the Moonflower) go on a huge adventure to rescue a mad queen, and in the process find out they are more similar than dissimilar. Old enemies show up to thwart them, and old friends to aid them which all makes for a fabulously great tale.
On the contemporary side, Colin and Eloise get involved in their own mystery/kidnapping on the eve of a very special day. Fans of the series will be pleased with how the author wraps up their story line. 5 stars indeed!
