Waiting on Wednesday: Manor of Secrets

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Manor of Secrets by Katherine Longshore
Pub. Date: January 28, 2014



Goodreads says, "Lady Charlotte Edmonds: Beautiful, wealthy and sheltered, Charlotte feels suffocated by the strictures of upper-crust society. She longs to see the world beyond The Manor, to seek out high adventure—and most of all, romance. Janie Seward: Fiery, hardworking, and clever, Janie knows she can be more than just a kitchen maid. But she isn’t sure she possesses the courage—or the means—to break free and follow her passions. Both Charlotte and Janie are ready for change. As their paths overlap in the gilded hallways and dark corridors of The Manor, rules are broken and secrets are revealed. Secrets that will alter the course of their lives…forever."
Ok, so I know the adult fiction market is saturated with many a Downton Abbey read-alike; however, this is YA and this is Katherine Longshore.  I adored Longshore's Gilt and Tarnish, so if anyone can pull off a Downton Abbey inspired YA read, it's her. What do you guys think?
