Book gloat...

...as in my perigrinations around Town this morning I seem to have found a proof copy of Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer's The Grand Tour (Being a Revelation of Matters of High Confidentiality and Greatest Importance, Including Extracts from the Intimate Diary of a Noblewoman and the Sworn Testimony of a Lady of Quality), the long awaited sequel to Sorcery and Cecilia.

As the publisher's site puts it:

Kate and Cecy and their new husbands, Thomas and James, are off on a Grand Tour. Their plans? To leisurely travel about the Continent, take in a few antiquities, and--of course--purchase fabulous Parisian wardrobes.

But once they arrive in France, mysterious things start to happen. Cecy receives a package containing a lost coronation treasure, Thomas's valet is assaulted, and Kate loses a glove. Soon it becomes clear that they have stumbled upon a dastardly, magical plot to take over Europe.

Now the four newlyweds must embark on a daring chase to thwart the evil conspiracy. And there's no telling the trouble they'll get into along the way. For when you mix Kate and Cecy and magic, you never know what's going to happen next!

Rar! I think I shall enjoy this one (before I loan it to tamaranth)...

But I shall finish reading about vampire queens with prada shoe fetishes first...
