Love, Lies and Spies

(2016)
A novel by

 
Full of humor, English Regency charm, and starring a whip-smart strong female heroine, this hilarious homage to Jane Austen will "have readers rooting for love and science" (Entertainment Weekly).

Juliana Telford isn't your ordinary nineteenth-century lady. She's more interested in publishing her research on ladybugs than in marriage or fashionable dresses. Spencer Northam isn't your ordinary nineteenth-century gentleman. He's a spy for the War Office on his first mission. But when Spencer's assignment involves keeping an eye on the lovely Julianna and her friends, their plans for a season without romance are unapologetically foiled.

Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey is a debut novel with the perfect mix of romance, action, and adventure, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

Praise for Love, Lies and Spies:

"It's Jane Austen meets Jane Foster in Anstey's debut novel, which serves up a delightful combination of Regency romance, scientific curiosity, and spy intrigue for a tale that will have readers rooting for love and science." - Entertainment Weekly

"A tongue-in-cheek nod to Regency romances, Anstey's lighthearted novel is perfect for readers looking for an Austen-inspired tale of intrigue and romance. The story gets an additional boost from Juliana's many humorous scrapes, which are unbefitting of a nineteenth-century lady. This would make a nice companion for Garth Nix's farcical Newt's Emerald." - Booklist

"Give to young teens in need of a fluffier Patrice Kindl's Keeping the Castle. . . . A cute premise and cover make this a solid purchase for budding historical romance readers." - School Library Journal

"I cannot tell you how much I love this book. Juliana, Spencer, Bobbington, ALL of them are just so utterly wonderful. This is BETTER than Georgette Heyer. YEP, I SAID IT." - Kelly Zekas, author of These Vicious Masks
