The Friday 56 (55) A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE

Synopsis from Goodreads...

Rescued from the gallows in 1850s London, young orphan (and thief) Mary Quinn is surprised to be offered a singular education, instruction in fine manners — and an unusual vocation. Miss Scrimshaw’s Academy for Girls is a cover for an all-female investigative unit called The Agency, and at seventeen, Mary is about to put her training to the test. Assuming the guise of a lady’s companion, she must infiltrate a rich merchant’s home in hopes of tracing his missing cargo ships. But the household is full of dangerous deceptions, and there is no one to trust — or is there? Packed with action and suspense, banter and romance, and evoking the gritty backstreets of Victorian London, this breezy mystery debuts a daring young detective who lives by her wits while uncovering secrets — including those of her own past...

A Spy in the House (The Agency, #1)
"Miss Closet must have paused to repin that hair. It was scraped back severely now, when a few minutes ago it had been tumbling down her shoulders."--A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee

Comments: I've just started my reread of this one. I read A Spy in the House a long time ago, and don't remember what happens in the book. So, I'm really excited to read it again. What are you reading this week?

  2. This book has been on my TBR mountain for quite a while. It sounds like I'd enjoy it but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. I am spotlighting Winter by Marissa Meyer this week. Happy reading!
