What Am I Waiting On?
Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross
Expected publication: June 11th 2013 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers
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.
Why Am I Waiting On It?
I saw this book spotlighted on a blog the other week as one to watch out for and when I looked it up it sounded just fabulous. I love the cover and the sound of this historical fiction looks fabulous and very sophisticated.
