Kirkus Proclaims NIGHT JASMINE "a Winner"!

More happy, happy news! That extra happy isn’t just for extra happiness, but because this week brought not one, but two more rave reviews for Night Jasmine, one from Library Journal, which gave glowing notices to “[a]nother well-written chapter” in the Pink series and the other from Kirkus, which decreed that “[s]mart characters of both genders, fast-paced plotting and a dash of self-conscious humor make this installment a winner”. Huzzah!

Kirkus further made my day with this comment: “Willig, a Harvard-educated historian, mixes pitch-perfect period details with lighthearted romance for a fresh take on the genre”. I knew I went to grad school for a reason.

Add in last week’s Publishers Weekly review, and you have what my editor has happily proclaimed “a trifecta of wonderful reviews”.

Good things clearly come in threes.
