Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween, everyone. Do you do the dress up/trick or treating thing with your family? My work always has a costume contest and some people are so creative with their ideas. I’m looking forward to seeing them today.
This week, I’m sharing a January 2019 release from a debut author I’m looking forward to reading. I’ve heard (from a couple other authors endorsing the book) that this is a great one!
From debut author Abigail Wilson comes a mysterious Regency tale of secrets and spies, love and treachery.
Orphaned Sybil Delafield jumps at the opportunity for a position at the mysterious Croft Towers. She believes she was hired to act as companion to a dying woman, but a highway robbery and a hostile welcome from the Chalcroft family cause her to wonder if she was actually hired to help someone spy for France.
An unsolved murder adds intrigue to this already secretive family, and Sybil recognizes Mrs. Chalcroft’s handsome grandson as one of the infamous highwaymen who robbed her. Sybil must determine if this man’s charming smile and earnest eyes speak the truth or if he is simply using her like others in the house. Everyone seems to have something to hide, and Sybil must decide who to trust while also coming to terms with the truth about her own past.

Doesn’t it sound like a wonderful read?

I definitely haven’t heard about this book yet. I really like the cover. I probably would try this book. I really enjoy Regency books. I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since High School during Homecoming week. I think it’s neat people dress up at your work. Are you dressing up?
