Welcome back to Crimson Rose Book Club. As we focused on Mary last week, it only seems fair to turn our attention to Vaughn. And, boy oh boy, is there a lot to talk about.
To start us off:
Having met Vaughn in the previous books, did entering his point of view in Crimson Rose change your prior opinion of him?
Who do you think developed more over the course of the book, Vaughn or Mary?
Where do you see them in five years?
Over the course of writing the first three Pink books, I played around with the idea of setting Vaughn up with various other characters, including Penelope, Jane, and Charlotte (it’s as though my books were his own personal season of The Bachelor: 18th Century Edition). Vaughn himself contemplated setting his cap at Henrietta. Could you see Vaughn with any of them? Why or why not?
What did you think of Vaughn’s relationship with his first wife? How is she different from/similar to Mary? Could they ever have had a chance?
