"Waiting on" Wednesday: The Friday Society

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

by Adrienne Kress
Release Date: December 6, 2012
Goodreads Description:
An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns–and the heroines who use them all

Set in turn of the century London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder–and the crimes they believe may be connected to it–without calling too much attention to themselves.

Set in the past but with a modern irreverent flare, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike–well, relatively ladylike–heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.
Why am I eagerly waiting on this?  I've developed a fascination for Steampunk and I'm a huge murder mystery fan.  Plus, I love books set in turn of the century London!  So, this book encompasses all sorts of fascinating pieces that I enjoy and I can't wait to read it to see how well the author fits all of those pieces together.  And, I think the cover totally rocks!
What are you eagerly waiting on?
