Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink by Stephanie Kate Strohm (Review)

Libby Kelting had always felt herself born out of time. No wonder the historical romance-reading, Jane Austen-adaptation-watching, all-around history nerd jumped at the chance to intern at Camden Harbor, Maine’s Oldest Living History Museum. But at Camden Harbor Libby’s just plain out of place, no matter how cute she looks in a corset. Her cat-loving coworker wants her dead, the too-smart-for-his-own-good local reporter keeps pushing her buttons, her gorgeous sailor may be more shipwreck than dreamboat — plus Camden Harbor’s haunted. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, Libby learns that boys, like ghosts, aren’t always what they seem.


Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink was a fun and lighthearted read. It's not a very realistic book. One of the most unrealistic things was when they put a high school age girl and boy who just graduated last spring in the same room, I don't believe that anyone would have done that without getting her parents permission.

There were many funny scenes that had me laughing out loud, so that was nice. And it was really nice getting little historical facts while keeping the story light.

Ashling had to be the most annoying character, but at the same time she was really key to the story - she added a lot of humor just by being the way she was.

There is some foul language used in the book, just letting you know so if that's something you try to avoid.

Overall, a fun book, but I would recommend borrowing if possible before purchasing. There's another book about these characters, Confederates Don't Wear Couture (Pilgrims #2), which I will probably end up reading sometime, just not sure when.

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***
