Waiting on Wednesday (30)
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly waiting to read.
The Spiritglass Charade by Colleen Gleason
Release Date: October 7, 2014
Publisher: Chronicle Books
Series: Stoker & Holmes #2
After the Affair of the Clockwork Scarab, Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes are eager to help Princess Alix with a new case. Seventeen-year-old Willa Aston is obsessed with spiritual mediums, convinced she is speaking with her mother from beyond the grave. What seems like a case of spiritualist fraud quickly devolves into something far more menacing: someone is trying to make Willa appear lunatic using an innocent-looking spiritglass to control her. The list of clues piles up: an unexpected murder, a gang of pickpockets, and the return of vampires to London. But are these events connected? As Uncle Sherlock would say, there are no coincidences. It will take all of Mina’s wit and Evaline’s muscle to keep London’s sinister underground at bay.
Why I’m Waiting
In case anyone doesn’t remember, I absolutely loved THE CLOCKWORK SCARAB by Colleen Gleason, loved it! It was so much fun to read with a bit of Egyptian mystery and was very Sherlock Holmes-esque. I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series.
What are you waiting for this week?
