Waiting on Wednesday (175)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

Love, Lies and Spies
By Cindy Anstey
Release date: April 19, 2016

In Love, Lies and Spies, Cindy Anstey's hilarious homage to Jane Austen, a lady with a penchant for trouble finds a handsome spy much more than merely tolerable.

Juliana Telford is not your average nineteenth-century young lady. She's much more interested in researching ladybugs than marriage, fashionable dresses, or dances. So when her father sends her to London for a season, she's determined not to form any attachments. Instead, she plans to secretly publish her research.

Spencer Northam is not the average young gentleman of leisure he appears. He is actually a spy for the War Office, and is more focused on acing his first mission than meeting eligible ladies. Fortunately, Juliana feels the same, and they agree to pretend to fall for each other. Spencer can finally focus, until he is tasked with observing Juliana's traveling companions . . . and Juliana herself.

I think this sounds like a book I'd love and not just because the blurb mentions Jane Austen. I'm not sure if it is set during the Regency or later but I have a feeling it will be a fun story either way!


  1. I agree! I love the sound of this one and I think the setting does sound very Austen-esque. Great pick!

  2. Sounds intriguing! I think I would like Juliana's personality. Great choice.

    Here's my WoW post.

  3. You sold me with the mention of Jane Austen. Love, Lies and Spies is on my wish list.

  4. I'm also really curious about this one. I really like the Regency period.

  5. Such a great pick, I also can't wait for this one (this was my WoW a few months ago!)

  6. I am intrigued and tempted! Thanks for sharing and enjoy. Here's mine: “THE GIRL IN THE RED COAT”

  7. This looks like a good one, and I like the cover. Very different- I like all the keys, and it took me a moment to realize that someone is chasing the carriage- I didn't even see that at first. The plot kinda reminds me of School for Unusual Girls, in that there is a spy falling for a lady who does unladylike things :) although that one might be more YA- ish than this one. Sounds like a good read!

  8. I love that cover! Think I saw the egalley somewhere recently. Great pick!
    Check out my WOW

  9. I think I would like this one also!! Thanks!
