Waiting on Wednesday (1)
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.
For my first Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Emerald by Karen Wallace.
Release Date: July 7th 2011
Book Summary: "Emerald St. John is in trouble. She has been condemned to marry a man she hates. Her enemies are conspiring to have her pet bear Molly torn apart in the baiting pits, and the man she loves is far away on the high seas. And she has stumbled into a web of spies with a plot to poison Queen Elizabeth I. To save herself and the kingdom, she must beat the spies at their own game - which means transforming herself from a country girl into a Court lady. Can she do it in time? Set against a detailed and vivid recreation of a great Elizabethan manor house, EMERALD will bring to life a world where the most sophisticated rules of etiquette went hand in with brutality and superstition."
My Thoughts: Emerald sounds like a great adventure. And possibly a romance if her high seas love comes back. I know I shouldn't judge books by their covers, but honestly, I love this cover. Her green dress is to die for! I'd love to wear a dress like that for a Halloween/costume party. I've been on a big British and British history kick since the royal wedding, and a fictional plot to poison Queen Elizabeth sounds intriguing. I haven't seen any arc reviews on Goodreads for Emerald, so guess I'll have to wait until the book is released to know more. Tweet
