Waiting on Wednesday: The Princess Spy

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each week offers you the opportunity to spotlight an up-an-coming release you are excited about.

Waiting On:
Title: The Princess Spy
Author: Melanie Dickerson
Publisher: Zondervan
Publication Date: November 4th, 2014

Synopsis:
From GoodReads
Margaretha has always been a romantic, and hopes her newest suitor, Lord Claybrook, is destined to be her one true love. But then an injured man is brought to Hagenheim Castle, claiming to be an English lord who was attacked by Claybrook and left for dead. And only Margaretha---one of the few who speaks his language---understands the wild story. Margaretha finds herself unable to pass Colin's message along to her father, the duke, and convinces herself 'Lord Colin' is just an addled stranger. Then Colin retrieves an heirloom she lost in a well, and asks her to spy on Claybrook as repayment. Margaretha knows she could never be a spy---not only is she unable to keep anything secret, she's sure Colin is completely wrong about her potential betrothed. Though when Margaretha overhears Claybrook one day, she discovers her romantic notions may have been clouding her judgment about not only Colin but Claybrook as well. It is up to her to save her father and Hagenheim itself from Claybrook's wicked plot.
Why I'm Waiting:
I love fairy tale retellings! And Melanie Dickerson has done a wonderful job with these stories. She has morphed these well known stories into something new, but still recognizable. They are full of fun and adventure.

What are you waiting on this week?

I like fairy tale retellings, too. This sounds wonderful. I'm always pleased with Zondervan's fiction releases. This looks like another one to add to my TBR pile.
