Description


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
