The Not Exactly Scarlet Pimpernel
by C. P. Lesley
I really, really liked the book. I think any fan of The Scarlet Pimpernel wanted to exploit Baroness’s gaps and omissions in the classic novel. C.P. Lesley does exactly that and gives a fresh spin to the plot. Have no fear, the storyline is as fast-paced and full of excitement. The characters find themselves not only following the script, but also falling out of the main frame of the original plot to find their own adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed joining Marguerite and Percy on their fresh adventure!
