Waiting on Wednesday: The Garden Intrigue

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It's a great chance to whine about how much you long to get your hands on a particular book. :)

Book cover of The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig (The Pink Carnation Spy series)

Last week, Lauren Willig released the cover of her next book in the Pink Carnation series.  The Garden Intrigue won't be published until February 2012 (*sigh of frustration*) but doesn't the cover look gorgeous? I can't wait for this one! Here's the plot description:
As Napoleon pursues his plans for the invasion of England, English operative Augustus Whittlesby gets wind of a top secret device, to be demonstrated over the course of a house party at Malmaison. The catch? The only way in is to join forces with that annoying American socialite, Emma Morris Delagardie, who has been commissioned to write a masque for the weekend’s entertainment. Even so, it should leave plenty of alone time with Augustus’ colleague (and goddess), Jane Wooliston, who has been tapped to play the heroine. Or so Augustus tells himself. In this complicated masque within a masque, nothing seems to go quite as scripted… especially Emma.
Other books by Lauren Willig: The Orchid Affair (Pink Carnation #8)
*Updated: Here's a link to my review of The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig.

  1. Oh my gosh, I can't wait! I hadn't seen the cover yet!

  2. This one looks good. I love the cover! Thanks for sharing! Here's my WOW:
    Happy reading!

  3. Carrie - I know! And, sadly, we have MONTHS to wait...

  4. I can't wait either - as soon as I saw the cover on Lauren's blog I fell in love with the colors. Enough so that I'm mostly getting over losing the old art covers.


Thank you for your comments!
