THE DECEPTION OF THE EMERALD RING
Genre: Mainstream, Chick lit
As in Willig's previous novels, modern-day Eloise Kelly and Colin Selwick continue their investigations of great mysteries and British intelligence agents of the past. They've already uncovered the identity of the Pink Carnation and the Black Tulip; now it's time to unmask the leader of the Emerald Ring. Willig brilliantly engages the reader in the relationships of her characters, past and present, blending fascinating history with adventure and romance. Her books delight, impart knowledge and captivate.
Researching the history of some famous spies, Colin and Eloise lift their noses from their work long enough to realize that something's going on between them. That's nothing compared to the historical events they uncover. As the tension between France and England rise and Napoleon offers support to a band of Irish insurgents, the notorious Black Tulip spy arrives in Ireland, where the Pink Carnation, Britain's deadly spy, is attempting to stop the uprising.
