Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that features future releases.
Jane and Vincent go to Long Parkmeade to spend time with Jane’s family, but quickly turn restless. The year is unseasonably cold. No one wants to be outside and Mr. Ellsworth is concerned by the harvest, since a bad one may imperil Melody’s dowry. And Melody has concerns of her own, given the inadequate selection of eligible bachelors. When Jane and Vincent receive a commission from a prominent family in London, they decide to take it, and take Melody with them. They hope the change of scenery will do her good and her marriage prospects—and mood—will be brighter in London.
Once there, talk is of nothing but the crop failures caused by the cold and increased unemployment of the coldmongers, which have provoked riots in several cities to the north. With each passing day, it’s more difficult to avoid getting embroiled in the intrigue, none of which really helps Melody’s chances for romance. It’s not long before Jane and Vincent realize that in addition to getting Melody to the church on time, they must take on one small task: solving a crisis of international proportions.
I first learned about the Glamourist Histories Series from Lee at She-Wolf Reads and I was hooked. The first two books, Shades of Milk and Honey (Review) and Glamour in Glass (Review) captivated me. I love the unique blend of magic and Regency romance. I really can’t wait for Without a Summer to come out and April seems too far off.
What are you waiting for? Let me know in the comments. Happy reading!
