"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My selection for this week is:
Emerald by Karen Wallace
Publication Date: July 7th 2011
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's
Summary from Goodreads:
Emerald St. John is in trouble. She has been condemned to marry a man she hates. Her enemies are conspiring to have her pet bear Molly torn apart in the baiting pits, and the man she loves is far away on the high seas. And she has stumbled into a web of spies with a plot to poison Queen Elizabeth I. To save herself and the kingdom, she must beat the spies at their own game - which means transforming herself from a country girl into a Court lady. Can she do it in time? Set against a detailed and vivid recreation of a great Elizabethan manor house, EMERALD will bring to life a world where the most sophisticated rules of etiquette went hand in with brutality and superstition.
What I think:With my latest interest in Historical romance,I just couldn't pass the opportunity of mentioning Emerald by Karen Wallace.I love the cover and the summary promises a story full of twists and deadly plots.I just have to read this book!
