Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Maid of Secrets 
by Jennifer McGowan
 
Orphan Meg Fellowes makes her living picking pockets—until she steals from the wrong nobleman. Instead of rotting in prison like she expected, she’s whisked away to the court of Queen Elizabeth and pressed into royal service, where she joins four other remarkable girls in the Maids of Honor, the Queen’s secret society of protectors.

Meg’s natural abilities as a spy prove useful in this time of unrest. The Spanish Court is visiting, and with them come devious plots and hidden political motives. As threats to the kingdom begin to mount, Meg can’t deny her growing attraction to one of the dashing Spanish courtiers. But it’s hard to trust her heart in a place where royal formalities and masked balls hide the truth: Not everyone is who they appear to be. With danger lurking around every corner, can she stay alive—and protect the crown?

This book literally has every element that I love. Historical fiction with romance and spys and wonderful things!

What are you waiting on?

I'm not a fan of historical romances although there has been a couple that I have loved and maybe this will be one of those. Thanks for sharing :)
