Waiting on Wednesday #10: Maid of Secrets
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!
This week, I'm waiting on:
Maid of Secrets by Jennifer McGowan.
Expected Publication: May 7, 2013.
Publisher: Simon & Schuster BYR
Seventeen-year-old Meg Fellowes is a wry, resourceful thief forced to join an elite group of female spies in Queen Elizabeth’s Court. There she must solve a murder, save the Crown, and resist the one thing that will become her greatest freedom–and her deadliest peril.
For Meg and her fellow spies are not alone in their pursuit of the murderer who stalks Windsor Castle.
A young, mysterious Spanish courtier, Count Rafe de Martine, appears at every turn in the dark and scandal-filled corridors of the Queen’s summer palace. And though secrets and danger are Meg’s stock-in-trade, she’s never bargained on falling in love…
Why I'm Excited: Back to my Historical Fiction love on this one. Plus it looks like there will be some action and some love along with the history, so I'm looking forward to this debut! I've also been following Corsets, Cutlasses & Candlesticks where Jennifer occasionally blogs along with other YA & MG Historical Fiction authors and it definitely seems like she has done her research and has some great ideas!
What are you waiting on this week?
