Maid of Secrets by Jenifer McGown
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Pub date: May 7th 2013
Seventeen-year-old Meg Fellowes is a wry, resourceful thief forced to join an elite group of female spies in Queen Elizabeth’s Court. There she must solve a murder, save the Crown, and resist the one thing that will become her greatest freedom–and her deadliest peril.
For Meg and her fellow spies are not alone in their pursuit of the murderer who stalks Windsor Castle.
A young, mysterious Spanish courtier, Count Rafe de Martine, appears at every turn in the dark and scandal-filled corridors of the Queen’s summer palace. And though secrets and danger are Meg’s stock-in-trade, she’s never bargained on falling in love…
Why i'm waiting:
This is exactly my kin of book. I've always, for some reason, loved where there are secrets around the Queen and this is exactly it. Further more, it's set in the Elizabethan era. Double yeah!
