The Friday Society
Pub. Date: December 6th, 2012
Synopsis via Goodreads
An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns--and the heroines who use them all. Set in Edwardian London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.
It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder--and the crimes they believe may be connected to it--without calling too much attention to themselves.
Told with Adrienne Kress's sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike--well, relatively ladylike--heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.
Oh oh OH! This sounds sooo good! And I'm going to have to wait so long for it. *sniffs* Gowns, guys and guns? I mean come on! This books is gonna be so killer. ;) I sure hope it lives up to how amazing I think it is going to be. So what do you think? Had you heard of this one? Do you think this is one you'll be dying to read as well?
