Waiting on Wednesday: Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey10:00
This week's pick is:
Author: Cindy Anstey
Published April 11th 2017 by Swoon Reads
Miss Lydia Whitfield, heiress to the family fortune, has her future entirely planned out. She will run the family estate until she marries the man of her late father's choosing, and then she will spend the rest of her days as a devoted wife. Confident in those arrangements, Lydia has tasked her young law clerk, Mr. Robert Newton, to begin drawing up the marriage contracts. Everything is going according to plan.
Until Lydia—and Robert along with her—is kidnapped. Someone is after her fortune and won't hesitate to destroy her reputation to get it. With Robert's help, Lydia strives to keep her family's good name intact and expose whoever is behind the devious plot. But as their investigation delves deeper and their affections for each other grow, Lydia starts to wonder whether her carefully planned future is in fact what she truly wants…
Why I'm waiting:
- Anstey's debut was wonderful, and was just the ticket for me. Here's hoping Duels and Deception is just as good, if not better.
- I was approved for an ARC of this, so I'm going to get to it as soon as work lets up a bit :)
