Title: Curtsies and Conspiracies
Author Gail Carriager
Series: Finishing School #2
Genre: Teen Fiction
Release Date: November 5, 2013
The Overview: Does one need four fully grown foxgloves for decorating a dinner table for six guests? Or is it six foxgloves to kill four fully grown guests? Sophronia’s first year at Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality has certainly been rousing! For one thing, finishing school is training her to be a spy (won’t Mumsy be surprised?). Furthermore, Sophronia got mixed up in an intrigue over a stolen device and had a cheese pie thrown at her in a most horrid display of poor manners. Now, as she sneaks around the dirigible school, eavesdropping on the teachers’ quarters and making clandestine climbs to the ship’s boiler room, she learns that there may be more to a school trip to London than is apparent at first. A conspiracy is afoot–one with dire implications for both supernaturals and humans. Sophronia must rely on her training to discover who is behind the dangerous plot-and survive the London Season with a full dance card.
This Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine) was a hard one because I’ve already featured all of the books I am dying to read (Allegiant, Champion, and Fiery Hearts to name a few). So this week my pick is one that I’m convinced I will be excited for once I read the first book (based on customer feedback and helpful reviews by my fellow bloggers). I love books that take place in schools, and this one has sort of a steampunk edge to it that promises to be amazing.
What book are you waiting on?
Love the title! Sounds like an interesting book:)

I hope it’s as good as it sounds. :-)
I read the first book in the series, thinking it would be something like the Gallagher Girls series + some high society etiquette. There was potential, but it was a very slow book for me. I don’t plan on continuing with this series. I hope you enjoy it more than I did.

I really appreciate the feedback because I was expecting something like Gallagher girls. I guess there’s only one way to find out, ha ha. :-)
Great pick! I haven’t seen this one around yet but it sounds really good.
