Waiting on Wednesday




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


This week's book is a Lauren Willig title called The Betrayal of the Blood Lilly.



Lauren Willig's books are light historical novels with romance and a touch of intrigue thrown in. From the author's website:

Everyone warned Miss Penelope Deveraux that her unruly behavior would land her in disgrace someday. She never imagined she'd be whisked off to India to give the scandal of her hasty marriage time to die down. As Lady Frederick Staines, Penelope plunges into the treacherous waters of the court of the Nizam of Hyderabad, where no one is quite what they seem—even her own husband. In a strange country where elaborate court dress masks even more elaborate intrigues and a spy called the Marigold leaves cobras as his calling card, there is only one person Penelope can trust....

This book will be published by Dutton in January 2010.

This sounds really good and has a locale I don't read about much. I will have to add it to my tbr pile.
