I wasn't sure how I felt about Turnip being the hero of his own story. Turns out, I absolutely adored him! He sort of bumbles and fumbles about, but he is so genuinely caring that one does not care. Arabella was a perfect match for him, overlooking his faults and accepting Turnip as is. In turn, Turnip overlooks status and class and loves Arabella for the spunky yet pragmatic woman she is.
Kate Reading is, as always, a fabulous narrator, easily transporting us to the time and place. We also get a visit from none other than Jane Austen herself, who is unassuming and witty. Eloise and Collin do not make an appearance in this story, due to the fact that it takes place between Crimson Rose and Night Jasmine. I missed them, but completely understand their absence. Mistletoe is a fantastic addition to the Pink Carnation series and a must read for any fan!
(My only complaint would be to the producers of the audiobook and not the book itself. A bit of the music from the beginning is inserted absolutely randomly throughout the book. I could almost understand if it happened only once or in between scene changes. But it happened at least half a dozen times and in completely bizarre places. One would think that a producer or editor would have noticed that.)

This Christmas offering from the lovely and gracious Lauren Willig, is fabulous fun. Funny, suspenseful and romantic - all wrapped up in one. The icing on the cake is that it is narrated by the marvelous Kate Reading. I could not have asked for a more delicious way to spend my holiday leisure hours.

I am so sorry the series has finished, but I'm so glad Turnip got his own story, he has been my favorite all through the series. I have read the pink carnation series over and over, I always include Turnip in my Christmas read.
Kate Reading is one of my favorite narrator's she brings the whole series alive for me. loved it!
