Hello, Pink III, The Deception of the Emerald Ring!
Who: Letty Alsworthy and Geoffrey Pinchingdale-Snipe
Where: England and Ireland
When: Summer, 1803
What: Rebellion is brewing in Ireland, but Geoff is on the case—along with his accidental bride.
Historical Cameos: Robert Emmett
Fun fact: Emerald Ring was the result of my TAing a class on the Second British Empire back in my third year of grad school, while I was working on Pink I. When we got to Emmett’s attempted insurrection, I couldn’t help thinking it would be the perfect backdrop for a book about Geoff. If I ever got to write a book about Geoff….
My favorite scene? One word: chickens. You know what I mean.
(For a wonderful representation of my favorite scene, constructed out of sugary treats, check out the Pink Carnation Peep Diorama gallery.)

p.s. All these snazzy cards you’ve been seeing at the bottom of these posts are courtesy of Sharlene, who made them by picking her favorite snippet from each book. I have my own favorite bits, but I love seeing which moments/lines leap out at other people….
