is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy. There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

The author is new to me, that is for sure. I can´t say how much of this novel will be fiction, but one thing I can say: I want to read it. I was shocked when the Queen announced earlier this year that her beloved husband had died. To have the chance now, to take a closer look behind the scenes, and to read their love story is hopefully a wonderful way to get the full picture.

But for once, Elizabeth is determined to stand up to all odds and follow her heart ...

  3. Oh yes! This does sound good. And I love that cover. Thank you for sharing!

  4. This sounds really good. I was so sad to hear Prince Philip passed away earlier this year. They looked like they were so in love.

    1. I hope it will be a good one. But I guess, with that love story in the background, it must be good.
