“Waiting on” Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill at Breaking the Spine and highlights upcoming books we can’t wait to own. I’m new to the WOW meme but there’s so much out there I’m “waiting on” it seems perfect to me.
This week’s Coming Soon Title I swear has me bouncing up and down like an eight year old waiting for Disneyland to open. It’s Elegy for Eddie: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear.
(from Goodreads) In this latest entry in Jacqueline Winspear’s acclaimed, bestselling mystery series–“less whodunits than why-dunits, more P.D. James than Agatha Christie” (“USA Today”)–Maisie Dobbs takes on her most personal case yet, a twisting investigation into the brutal killing of a street peddler that will take her from the working-class neighborhoods of her childhood into London’s highest circles of power. Perfect for fans of “A Lesson in Secrets,” “The Mapping of Love and Death,” or other Maisie Dobbs mysteries–and an ideal place for new readers to enter the series–“Elegy for Eddie “is an incomparable work of intrigue and ingenuity, full of intimate descriptions and beautifully painted scenes from between the World Wars, from one of the most highly acclaimed masters of mystery, Jacqueline Winspear.
Yes, boys and girls, I’m happy to say Maisie is coming back. Thank goodness for Downton Abbey for keeping me fairly Maisie-withdrawl free. But I sure am glad to know she be here soon.
Elegy for Eddie: A Maisie Dobbs Novel goes on sale March 27th, 2012. (Just in time for my Birthday-wasn’t that sweet of her?)
