Can't Wait Wednesday #4: Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about 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. My pick this week is a book by an author that I really enjoyed her debut novel Love, Lies and Spies.  I'm looking forward to a similar style book.  Here's the blurb from Goodreads:

Miss Lydia Whitfield, heiress to the family fortune, has her future entirely planned out. She will run the family estate until she marries the man of her late father's choosing, and then she will spend the rest of her days as a devoted wife. Confident in those arrangements, Lydia has tasked her young law clerk, Mr. Robert Newton, to begin drawing up the marriage contracts. Everything is going according to plan.

Until Lydia—and Robert along with her—is kidnapped. Someone is after her fortune and won't hesitate to destroy her reputation to get it. With Robert's help, Lydia strives to keep her family's good name intact and expose whoever is behind the devious plot. But as their investigation delves deeper and their affections for each other grow, Lydia starts to wonder whether her carefully planned future is in fact what she truly wants…




So, that's what I'm waiting for at the moment. Have you read this author's first book?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. Those doggies are so cute!

    Duels & Deception doesn't particularly sound like something I'd enjoy but I'm curious as to how you end up liking it. You might change my mind :)

    1. Aw! Thank you! I love my pups!

      Hmm, I can definitely see it not being everyone's cup of tea. I hope I will enjoy it as much as the last one though.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I still have her first book on my shelf waiting to be read. I love the look of both of these books and the Austen-like feel to them. Great pick!
