Waiting on Wednesday # 19

 
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. it origins from Breaking The Spine and we're glad to be able to use it .

I apologize for missing last week. I figured with all the new cover reveals I
did, it was enough for one week. So, what am I looking forward to this week?


Description:
Be your own hero.
An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns--and the heroines who use them all
Set in Edwardian London, "The Friday Society" follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.
It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder--and the crimes they believe may be connected to it--without calling "too" much attention to themselves.
Told with Adrienne Kress's sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike--well, relatively ladylike--heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

This is yet another steampunk novel set in merry old England.
 I love the premise of this story, and am trying my
hardest to gain a copy of this book before it comes out!
