I’m handing this post off to Erin, who is leading us through Pink II. Enjoy!
So I hope everyone is enjoying reading The Masque of the Black Tulip. I have been so excited to re-read Pink II that I am having a hard time keeping myself in check and not blasting thorough it. I will be doing my first recap of the book on Friday of the first 11 chapters. But today, I thought I would give you all a little treat; there is a different chapter 3 to Pink II that was cut from the manuscript before publication.
In chapter 2, we learn that a French spy has been sent to England to discover who the Pink Carnation is. In both the bonus chapter 3 and the actual chapter 3 in the book, we learn that the nefarious French spy is none other than The Black Tulip – dum dum dummm. The difference in the chapters is who is telling us. Here is the link to Lauren’s site so you can read the different chapter 3…
What did you think? Should it have remained or do you like the published version better?
