Waiting on Wednesday (#248): Suitors and Sabotage by Cindy Anstey

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I'm featuring:

Suitors and Sabotage by Cindy Anstey
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Publication Date: April 17, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads):

Suitors and Sabotage is an engaging (pun intended) story of love, art, and secrets in which there are nefarious goings-on (as well as a mischievous dog, called Jasper).

Shy Imogene Chively, artist extraordinaire, has caught the interest of a young gentleman of whom her father approves. However, all does not go smoothly… or as planned when Ernest Steeple visits her at the family estate with his brother, Benjamin, by his side.

Ben has been gifted with easy charm but, unfortunately, not a natural ability to draw; it’s a rather significant deficit for a first year architectural apprentice… one that he has hidden from his mentor thus far. Imogene readily agrees to tutor Ben and with the collusion of his brother and her best friend, Emily, they do so in secret.

However, many complications arise as Imogene realizes that her heart is leaning away from Ernest and toward Ben. The situation takes a turn for the worse when Emily declares her love for Benjamin and they are made the brunt of nasty hoaxes and perilous accidents. But who is perpetrating these incidents and why?

Like Love, Lies and Spies and Duels & Deception, Suitors and Sabotage is a comedy of manners—a Regency Romp. It’s a story of ruins and romance, friendship and fear, and trouble and terror. Yes, it is a comedy. I can’t wait for you to read it!

I can't wait to read this book! I'm actually cheating a little because I have an ARC already. :D But I've not read it yet, so this counts! I loved Anstey's previous books and I'm sure I will adore this new one.


  1. I haven't tried any of her books yet, but you piqued my curiosity with this one for sure! I think it might work well for me, and that cover is soooo pretty!! Fingers crossed you have a blast with the ARC :D
