Waiting on Wednesday

I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.


The Bluebeard fairy tale retold. . . .

When seventeen-year-old Sophia Petheram’s beloved father dies, she receives an unexpected letter. An invitation—on fine ivory paper, in bold black handwriting—from the mysterious Monsieur Bernard de Cressac, her godfather. With no money and fewer options, Sophie accepts, leaving her humble childhood home for the astonishingly lavish Wyndriven Abbey, in the heart of Mississippi.

Sophie has always longed for a comfortable life, and she finds herself both attracted to and shocked by the charm and easy manners of her overgenerous guardian. But as she begins to piece together the mystery of his past, it’s as if, thread by thread, a silken net is tightening around her. And as she gathers stories and catches whispers of his former wives—all with hair as red as her own—in the forgotten corners of the abbey, Sophie knows she’s trapped in the passion and danger of de Cressac’s intoxicating world.

Glowing strands of romance, mystery, and suspense are woven into this breathtaking debut—a thrilling retelling of the “Bluebeard” fairy tale.

  1. Ooh, I have this on my Nook waiting to be read. I started a little bit of it, but had another deadline to meet, so I had to shelve it for a little while longer.

    What was the other Bluebeard retelling you've read? Even if it was horrible I'm still interested - morbid curiosity and all that.

  2. Loving this cover, the artwork reminds me a lot of the Clockwork series from Cassandra Clare!

  8. Damn - nothing worse than getting your hopes up, then being slapped down with a decline on NetGalley. Hope it's worth the wait.

    My WOW this week has a touch of Indiana Jones and Michael Crichton to it!
