I Can't Wait for... Deadly Curious by Cindy Anstey (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday) #CWW #WOW

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. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

This cover is just awesome! It feels like a mix of Austen and Sherlock and I love it when a cover seems to fit the story so well. I loved Anstey's previous books that were full of humor and whit. Her last book (The Hummingbird Dagger) I didn't love as much as most of that humor was missing, but I still enjoyed it and plan on enjoying this one just as much if not more. Plus, I love a good mystery, especially one set historically in England. It's my pick this week...

A twisty tale reminiscent of Jane Austen―with a dash of murder―Cindy Anstey's Deadly Curious is perfect for fans of Kerri Maniscalco and Agatha Christie.

Some secrets are better left buried...

1834. Sophia Thompson wants nothing more than to be one of the famed Bow Street Runners, London's most elite corps of detectives. Never mind that a woman has never before joined their ranks―and certainly never mind that her reclusive family has forbidden her from pursuing such an unladylike goal.

She gets the chance to prove her capabilities when an urgent letter arrives from her frantic cousin Daphne, begging Sophia to come look into the suspicious death of Daphne's brother.

As Sophia begins to unravel the tangled threads of the case―with the help of a charming young policeman―she soon realizes that the murderer may be even closer to her family than she ever suspected.
