It has been a glorious week for The Temptation of the Night Jasmine all around. With only one week left to go until the Official Release Day (January 22nd!), the happy reviews have been pouring in.
Romantic Times named Night Jasmine a Top Pick, enthusing, “Witty, smart, carefully detailed and highly entertaining, Willig’s latest is an inventive, addictive novel.” Huzzah!
Meanwhile, over at All About Romance, the marvelous LinnieGayl writes that she “enjoyed [Night Jasmine] a great deal”, and gives a special thumbs up to the strong friendship between Charlotte and Henrietta. I’m sure Henrietta would approve.
Finally, in my personal favorite, the sort of review to warm the deepest cockles of a writer’s heart, Debora of The Romance Readers Connection writes, “The characters, romance, history, action and adventure, and most of all the wonderful writing, makes THE TEMPTATION OF THE NIGHT JASMINE a superior and definite page-turning reading experience. After a long reading slump, THE TEMPTATION OF THE NIGHT JASMINE brought back the magic of reading”.
Many, many thanks to all! There will be more Night Jasmine excitement in the days to come. In fact, I feel like I should do something fun here on the website to celebrate its official birthday next Thursday. Any ideas?
Lest Crimson Rose feel left out, it was not without its own partisans in this week’s review round-up. Stacey of WW Ladies Book Club Blurbs opines, “Willig’s series remains brilliantly fresh after four novels. Both Mary and Vaughn’s story and its frame of Eloise’s budding relationship (with both Colin and her dissertation) kept me turning pages. All four characters walk off the page and the suspense (in either contemporary or historical times) is an automatic pageturner.”
Yay! I love when my characters walk off the page– just so long as it’s not Vaughn walking into my living room.
