[Waiting On Wednesday: Belle Epoque]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Belle Epoque"
Author: Elizabeth Ross
Release Date: June 11th, 2013


When Maude Pichon runs away from provincial Brittany to Paris, her romantic dreams vanish as quickly as her savings. Desperate for work, she answers an unusual ad. The Durandeau Agency provides its clients with a unique service—the beauty foil. Hire a plain friend and become instantly more attractive.

Monsieur Durandeau has made a fortune from wealthy socialites, and when the Countess Dubern needs a companion for her headstrong daughter, Isabelle, Maude is deemed the perfect foil.

But Isabelle has no idea her new "friend" is the hired help, and Maude's very existence among the aristocracy hinges on her keeping the truth a secret. Yet the more she learns about Isabelle, the more her loyalty is tested. And the longer her deception continues, the more she has to lose.

It's Paris, it's historical and it sounds like there is a lot of secrets that must be kept as well!  These are all things that I love.  I've been missing Paris and so this will be a nice little book.  And let's be honest, it doesn't sound like the secrets are going to be kept in the dark either.  Bring on all of it!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

This sounds great. I love reading historical fictions and I haven't read many books set in historic Paris. Looks good, great choice!
