A few years ago Jerrica Knight-Catania sent me a book that I must read. I was on the fence because at the time the only romances I read were historical and this one started off contemporary. But, I read it anyway because she insisted. The book was The Secret History of the Pink Carnation. It didn't take long before I could not put this book down and went searching for others in the series. I had never read anything like this with the story jumping from present to the Napoleonic Era and back again. Usually those jumps occurred a crucial part in the story that is both irritating (because I didn't want to wait until she went back to the past) and exciting (because the author had left me hanging in the present portion of the story). Plus, they have spies and France - two of my favorite things. Not all of the stories have a French setting, but the first one did and I was hooked.
This is one series that I find myself anxiously awaiting the next release and last night I downloaded The Garden Intrigue, which is book 9 in the series. I cannot wait to start listening to it on the way to work this morning and it will probably be the first book completed for the 2013 Audio Book Challenge.
Have you discovered a series that you absolutely love and anxiously await the next book?
