Can't Wait Wednesday: The Lady's Guide

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Guide, #2)
Felicity Montague is through with pretending she prefers society parties to books about bone setting—or that she’s not smarter than most people she knows, or that she cares about anything more than her dream of becoming a doctor.

A year after an accidentally whirlwind tour of Europe, which she spent evading highwaymen and pirates with her brother Monty, Felicity has returned to England with two goals in mind—avoid the marriage proposal of Callum Doyle, a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh; and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science.

But then a small window of hope opens. Doctor Alexander Platt, an eccentric physician that Felicity idolizes, is looking for research assistants, and Felicity is sure that someone as forward thinking as her hero would be willing to take her on. However, Platt is in Germany, preparing to wed Felicity’s estranged childhood friend Johanna. Not only is Felicity reluctant to opening old wounds, she also has no money to make the trip.

Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity’s way, so long as she’s allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid. In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl’s true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that will lead her from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.
Yes, please! I loved The Gentleman's Guide to Vice & Virtue so I am incredibly excited to jump back into that world!

What are YOU waiting on this week?


  1. For some reason I couldn't get into the first book which really depressed me since everyone loved it so much. *sigh* I may try again someday. This sequel does sound good and I'd like to check it out at some point too.

  2. I've not read the first either, but they do look intriguing!

    Here's mine for today:

    Luv Sass x

  3. I haven’t read the first book but I am thinking I need to, this sounds great!

  4. I need to start this series. This one sounds even better!

  5. Hope you enjoy this one, Brooke! Thanks bunches for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  6. YES YES! I can't wait until they announce the audiobook narrator too!
