If you could sum up The Passion of the Purple Plumeria in three words, what would they be?
Entertaining, Clever, Original
What does Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Excellent narration. Her accents and character differentiation are fantastic. She is one of the best.
If you could take any character from The Passion of the Purple Plumeria out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Miss Gwen without a doubt. I like how she always tells it like it is!
Any additional comments?
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.

The previous book in the Pink Carnation series was kind of forgettable (I don't even remember which one it was), but since I have thoroughly enjoyed most of them, I was very excited to get The Passion of the Purple Plumeria. Am I glad I did! It's right back up there with her first books in humour, intrigue, and soppiness, so I had my fill of a terrific romance, lots of spy stuff, and plenty of laughter. I didn't want it to end--and it sounded as if this may be the end of the series, so I was a little sad at the end of the book...well, ok, a lot sad, but I was glad that it was so enjoyable.
The narration...for the first hour or so of the book I had issues with the narration--it seemed shrill and slow; and very enunciated (which can be annoying)--but by the next night I had grown used to it and by the end of the book I felt that Kate Reading did a wonderful job, all in all.
If you have EVER enjoyed Lauren Willig's books, don't miss out on this one! It was a rollicking good time! And so scandalous!
