Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School, #1)

Goodreads Summary: It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea - and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish, all right - but it's a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's certainly trains young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also in the other kinds of finishing: the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries. Sophronia and her friends are going to have rousing first year at school.

First in a four book YA series set 25 years before the Parasol Protectorate but in the same universe.

I first learn about this book from visiting another blog WoW post and I can't wait for this release! 

Link me in the comments with your WoW post.


  1. This looks interesting! I can't wait to read it.
    Check out my WOW!

  2. OOh nice! I actually just read the ARC of this one last week and it was pretty good! So exciting to have a prequel YA series and then she has her "Prudence" books coming out too! Not sure where those are going to fall though, YA or adult. I assume adult since she has this YA one!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
