Waiting on Wednesay ....WoW!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine in an effort to share with other smashing bloggers what titles are out there to be released.  My picks this week are:

Dead Rules
Randy Russel
Release Date: July 1st, 2011

Sometimes falling in love means you have to kill somebody. (from

It's really that one line that really does all the talking for me.  I mean, how twisted is that?  I suppose that much of the time love and death go hand in hand, but still.  It's funny to me in a dark sense.  It sounds smashing.

The Mysterious Lady Law
Robert Appleton
Release Date:  January 31st, 2011
In a time of grand airships and steam-powered cars, the death of a penniless young maid will hardly make the front page. But part-time airship waitress and music hall dancer Julia Bairstow is shattered by her sister's murder. When Lady Law, the most notorious private detective in Britain, offers to investigate the case pro bono, Julia jumps at the chance-even against the advice of Constable Al Grant, who takes her protection surprisingly to heart.

Lady Law puts Scotland Yard to shame. She's apprehended Jack the Ripper and solved countless other cold-case crimes. No one knows how she does it, but it's brought her fortune, renown and even a title. But is she really what she claims to be-a genius at deducting? Or is Al right and she is not be trusted?

Julia is determined to find out the truth, even if it means turning sleuth herself-and turning the tables on Lady Law...(from

Now, being that this book is Steampunk and takes place in wonderful Britian, I couldn't pass it up.  It seems as though Robert Appleton has given us a Steampunk Mystery and I'm always in for a good investigation.  I do not deny that a little mystery goes a long way. 

What is your pick for this WoW?  Cheers!


  1. Good choices =D

    I just requested The Mysterious Lady Law on netgalley, crossing my fingers that they approve me!!!

  4. How to Knit a Heart Back Home
    By Rachael Herron
    Publication date: March 1, 2011

    Lucy Harrison sells books by day and volunteers with the Cypress Hollow fire department by night. Her life is just the way she likes it—full, even-keeled, and smooth—until bad-boy ex-cop Owen Bancroft comes back to town. Lucy has always been fearless, never scared about diving in to help others. When it comes to risking her heart, however, she realizes she's absolutely terrified.

    In a small town like Cypress Hollow, everyone knows your business—and there is nowhere to hide. Then Lucy and Owen are thrown together by the discovery of the lost work of local legend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Now Owen, adrift and struggling to redefine himself as a civilian without a badge, will have to learn how to open himself up to life's new possibilities . . . while Lucy decides just how much of herself she's willing to gamble on love.

  5. Dead Rules has such a pretty cover.
