Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading.
As they walked from the room, Jonathan suddenly didn't doubt she had unusual contacts who could watch houses and not be seen. He wouldn't have liked to get on the wrong side of her.

Expected publication: October 20th 2013 by Gallery Books
A young noblewoman flees to London and poses as a servant to evade a murderer in this richly detailed and “compelling” (Publishers Weekly) historical novel.
Frightened for her life after her father, a British spy, is murdered, Giselle Barrington flees with the secret document her father gave her for safekeeping. Needing to hide from those now chasing her, and knowing that no one would look for a wealthy young society lady in a kitchen, she takes a job as a cook for a nobleman, determined to use her anonymity to uncover the murderer. Life below stairs gives her a new perspective on the hard realities of servants’ lives, even though she’s a highly paid one. And when her employer is drawn not only into her investigations, but also to her, they find themselves faced with the power imbalance between servant and master.
So, yeah, another book by Michelle Diener this week. This one doesn't come out until october though, but I couldn't wait any longer with reading it because it connects to The Emperor's Conspiracy and I can tell you that I've already seen characters from that book in this one. So exciting + the book is amazing! :D
