Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: A Most Dangerous Deception by Sarah Zettel
Genre: YA, Historical Fiction
Publisher: Harcourt
Release Date: November 5th 2013



Sixteen-year-old Peggy is a well-bred orphan who is coerced into posing as a lady in waiting at the palace of King George I. Life is grand, until Peggy starts to suspect that the girl she's impersonating might have been murdered. Unless Peggy can discover the truth, she might be doomed to the same terrible fate. But in a court of shadows and intrigue, anyone could be a spy—perhaps even the handsome young artist with whom Peggy is falling in love . . . History and mystery spark in this effervescent series debut.
Why am I waiting on this?
  • Normally I don't care much for historical fiction, but this one has me curious!
  • I like that the main characters name is Peggy
  • Overall just a great synopsis, hopefully the book meets my excitement!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?!

I'm not a big fan of historical fiction too, but I actually really like this cover. And yes, her name is cute :D Reminds me of Mad Men!

This book sounds amazing to me, being a fan of historical and YA books! I really like some of Sarah Zettel's books, so I can't wait to see what she has in store for us with A Most Dangerous Deception. :)

This sounds awesome and I want to read it, but I hate this cover for some reason.
