Lauren Willig’s Pink Carnation novels have been hailed as "sheer fun" and "charming". Now she takes listeners on an adventure filled with hidden treasure and a devilishly handsome English colonel....
Colonel William Reid has returned home from India to retire near his children, who are safely stowed at an academy in Bath. Upon his return to the Isles, however, he finds that one of his daughters has vanished, along with one of her classmates.
Because she served as second-in-command to the Pink Carnation, one of England’s most intrepid spies, it would be impossible for Gwendolyn Meadows to give up the intrigue of Paris for a quiet life in the English countryside - especially when she’s just overheard news of an alliance forming between Napoleon and an Ottoman Sultan. But, when the Pink Carnation’s little sister goes missing from her English boarding school, Gwen reluctantly returns home to investigate the girl’s disappearance.
Thrown together by circumstance, Gwen and William must cooperate to track down the young ladies before others with nefarious intent get their hands on them. But Gwen’s partnership with quick-tongued, roguish William may prove to be even more of an adventure for her than finding the lost girls….

Miss Gwen is THE BOMB!
Entertaining, Clever, Original
Excellent narration. Her accents and character differentiation are fantastic. She is one of the best.
Miss Gwen without a doubt. I like how she always tells it like it is!
I was so sad when the book ended. I can't decide if I want to listen to this book again or start from the first book in the series and work my way through them all again. I thought Ms. Willig wrote a wonderful love story for Miss Gwen.
I didn't think that Eloise's story was as strong as it was in some of the previous books, but I was so happy with Gwen's story that I didn't mind the weakness or real lack of a strong storyline for Eloise.
If you've not listened to or read the other books in the series then Miss Gwen's attitude and seemingly harsh manner may not be understood. Beneath her gruff exterior lies a soft-hearted woman.
Lauren's got her groove back!
