“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE NOBLEMAN’S GUIDE TO SCANDAL AND SHIPWRECKS by Mackenzi Lee.  Okay, I know this one doesn’t come out for months and months, but I stumbled across it while shopping online this weekend and was just so excited since I had no idea that Lee was planning to continue one of my all-time favorite YA series.  I’m especially intrigued by this third book since it focuses on Adrian,the little brother of Monty and Felicity.  If it’s like the first two books, it’s sure to be filled with plenty of adventure and humor and I can’t wait!


Publication Date:  August 18, 2020

From Goodreads:

Return to the enchanting world of the Montague siblings in the finale to the New York Times bestselling and Stonewall Honor-winning series, featuring a teenage Adrian Montague as he desperately seeks the now adult Monty and Felicity—the older siblings he never knew he had.

The sole heir to his family’s fortune, Adrian Montague desperately wants to be free—from his father’s high expectations; the grief of losing his beloved mother; and the constant war being waged inside his mind. Adrian was diagnosed with hysteria at a young age and it’s always been kept a secret. But when he has a breakdown at his engagement party, the public learns Adrian’s worst fear: he might not be fit to run the Montague estate.

Thankfully, Adrian is given an opportunity to avoid the impending scandal: a trip to the Caribbean to claim the last of his mother’s possessions. But along the way, Adrian discovers another secret lurking in his family tree. He is actually the youngest of three children—his sister Felicity and brother “Monty” went missing over a decade ago. Now Adrian has the chance to find them and offer to pass the estate back to the rightful heirs.

Adrian expects to win his long-lost brother over with the promise of wealth and inheritance, while dreaming of a quiet life where Adrian doesn’t feel like a burden to anyone. But when Adrian finally tracks him down, Monty refuses to return home. The only thing he can convince Monty of is to accompany him across the ocean as an act of tribute to their mother, hoping that during the voyage he can persuade Monty into taking the weight of inheriting the estate off his shoulders.

When they reach their destination, Adrian and Monty find something hidden in their mother’s belongings—a clue pointing to a valuable artifact that could potentially save the Montague siblings from a curse that threatens their lives. But to retrieve it, they must chase an infamous myth through the wild sugar fields of Barbados to the haunting streets of New Orleans to mysterious uncharted islands off the edge of the map.

      I think it would be pretty easy to binge. I got through the first two books pretty quickly when I read them just because they were so funny.

    That sounds like the perfect mix of history and novel genre. Alone reading the summary is so interesting and the name Montague sounds very familiar to me. Although I am sure that this author or series is new to me. But the name Montague … was there a TV series or something that had this name in it? Well, that book goes on my wishlist. I need to find out more. Thank you for sharing and happy reading!

    How have I still not started this series, I really need to grab a copy of the first book because everyone, including your lovely self, absolutely raves about it! So exciting that she’s bringing out another installment, I recently seen she had a novella out but glad she’s continuing on. Great choice Suzanne, going to grab a copy of Amazon shortly.

    I head over heels loved the first book in this series, and the second one was quite good to me as well! I can’t wait to see where it goes with the third one. I have to admit, I forgot they had a third sibling 😛
