.Waiting On Wednesday #17

Hosted By Jill @Breaking The Spine

My wow this week features a YA, Historical book. Historical's are usually not a favorite genre of mine, but I do love a good story with a kick a** chick in it. She's a thief, turned spy, and it looks like there is a love story is sprinkled in there.  

Maid of Secrets
Expected publication: May 7th 2013 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Seventeen-year-old Meg Fellowes is a wry, resourceful thief forced to join an elite group of female spies in Queen Elizabeth’s Court. There she must solve a murder, save the Crown, and resist the one thing that will become her greatest freedom–and her deadliest peril.

For Meg and her fellow spies are not alone in their pursuit of the murderer who stalks Windsor Castle.

A young, mysterious Spanish courtier, Count Rafe de Martine, appears at every turn in the dark and scandal-filled corridors of the Queen’s summer palace. And though secrets and danger are Meg’s stock-in-trade, she’s never bargained on falling in love.


  1. I'm not generally one for YA fiction, this one intrigues me - that look on her face tells a story all its own.

    Here's my WOW

  2. Not a fan of the cover for this one, but I like how the blurb makes it sound like there is a lot of mystery and twists. I love me some twists! Great pick!
