Waiting On Wednesday!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and its purpose is to spotlight those titles we can't wait for!

This is Agnes Wilkins’ debut season and already she’s attracting the attention of one of England’s most eligible and desirable men: Lord Showalter. He’s been quite forward about his intentions and Agnes finds this at once thrilling and terrifying. He is handsome and wealthy and has this quirky interest in helping England amass the world’s finest collection of Egyptian artifacts. It could be a good match—but everything Agnes knows about courtship and high society romance comes from A. Lady novels, and it seems to be a rule that men who are too good to be true are usually hiding something.

But, what Showalter is hiding is not crumbling finances or boarish behavior. He is deceiving the whole British Empire. He is spy working for Napoleon, his orders smuggled into London in Egyptian artifacts—like the one Agnes pockets while at a mummy unwrapping party at Showalter’s home. Her innocent interest in this trinket (and childish need to keep it) jump starts a chain of events that bring out dangerous characters, dangerous circumstances, and the biggest danger of all—true love.

I think this book sounds amazing! It sounds like a regency and if you know me at all you know I adore regency themed things! So excited!

What are you waiting on this week?

Great choice! As far as I'm concerned there aren't enough YA books set in the Regency time period, and you can't have too much of a good thing :D

This looks like a fun, historical read. Thanks for the great review! Right now I'm finishing a page turning epic by Michele Marie Tate called, Blood, Money, Power, which follows three generations of a family starting in 1920. What I love about this one is that you get to relive the folklore of Hearst castle, 1920’s wild and wicked ways and the dazzling lives of Hollywood’s legendary movie stars.
