Laura Grey joins the forces of the Pink Carnation because she feels that as spinster/governess she may be able to gather the information from households that others can't infiltrate. She also meets an old friend of her parents,Antoine Daubier, who was a friend of her employer, André Jaouen.
Her mission gets changed and Laura helps to aid the escape of the Jaouen family as well as Antoine Daubler and the story of their adventures and the developing romance carries this book throughout.
The current time romance is proceeding as well and the reader finally meets other members of Colin's family.
One of my favorites in the series.
