Waistcoats and Weaponry by Gail Carriger

"As much as she admired Felix's slouch and overconfident flirtations, how could she reconcile her politics with her dislike of his father's secret society."

I have been awaiting the latest novel from Ms Carriger with anticipation. As indispensable as the perfect cup of tea or fashionable mech-animal, it is time to return to Mademoiselle Geraldine's particular finishing school for instalment number 3.

Lord Felix reminds me of someone annoying. If only Sophronia could end up with Soap - but I have a feeling that won't eventuate, although who knows? Sometimes appearances can be deceiving and can you really get past being of a completely different opinion on all the things that matter to a potential mate?

This novel is full of fun, adventure, intrigue, high speed rail travel and the odd dirigible. Just one quibble for me, I want more Lord Akeldama... what can I say... i'm a fan!

5 out of 5 longing looks can have an intriguing impact.
