Waiting on Wednesday #104: Beauty, Beast, and Belladonna by Maia Chance

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

This week I am waiting on the cozy Beauty, Beast and Belladonna by Maia Chance. It's the third book in her Fairy Tale Fatal Series. 

Variety hall actress Ophelia Flax knows how to win over an audience. That’s why she’s accepted the marriage proposal of the brutish Comte de Griffe to nettle her occasional investigative partner—and romantic sparring partner—the pompous if dashing Professor Penrose. 

But with his boorish table manners, wild mane of hair, and habit of prowling away the wee hours, the comte has shredded Ophelia’s last nerve. She intends to disengage from her feral fiancé at his winter hunting party—until Penrose, his lovely new fiancée, and a stagecoach of stranded travelers arrive at the comte’s sprawling château. Soon she can’t tell the boars from the bores.

When one of the guests is found clawed and bloody in the orangerie, Ophelia is determined to solve the murder before everyone starts believing the local version of Beauty and the Beast. But until the snows melt, she can’t trust her eyes—or her heart—since even the most civilized people hold beastly secrets.

Honestly, I haven't read any of the series yet, but I am hoping to remedy that before this one comes out in February 2016. I like that the mysteries are loosely based on Fairy Tales. They sound like they are right up my alley.

What book are you waiting on this week? Please leave the title or a link in the comments so we can check it out. Happy Reading!
