Mackenzie Lee: Ladys Guide

Cavaliersreise, Mackenzie Lees amüsanter, queerer Roman hat mich letztes Jahr ziemlich begeistert.

Freche Geschichte, freche Figuren – wunderbar unterhaltsam.

Deshalb bin ich jetzt schon auf das Sequel gespannt: In The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy steht Montys Schwester Felicity im Mittelpunkt.

Die Verlagsbeschreibung klingt wie folgt: 

A year after an accidentally whirlwind grand tour with her brother Monty, Felicity Montague has returned to England with two goals in mind—avoid the marriage proposal of a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science.

But then a window of opportunity opens—a doctor she idolizes is marrying an old friend of hers in Germany. Felicity believes if she could meet this man he could change her future, but she has no money of her own to make the trip. Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity’s way, so long as she’s allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid.

In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl’s true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.

Der Königskinder Verlag hat inzwischen ja leider die Pforten geschlossen. Hoffentlich erscheint der Roman dennoch bald auf Deutsch.
