Waiting on Wednesday - Glamour In Glass

Every week I expect to not bump into a new-to-me book I just gotta have when it comes out. And week after week I do... bump!  Oh, how happy am I to bump into this mixture of Jane Austen in a Magical World!!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Glamour in Glass
by Marie Robinette Kowal
Glamour in Glass  Mary Robinette Kowal stunned readers with her charming first novelShades of Milk and Honey, a loving tribute to the works of Jane Austen in a world where magic is an everyday occurrence. This magic comes in the form of glamour, which allows talented users to form practically any illusion they can imagine. Shades went on to earn great acclaim and become a finalist for the prestigous Nebula Award, leaving readers eagerly awaiting its sequel, Glamour in Glass, which continues following the lives of beloved main characters Jane and Vincent, with a much deeper vein of drama and intrigue.
In the tumultuous months after Napoleon abdicates his throne, Jane and Vincent go to France for their honeymoon. While there, the deposed emperor escapes his exile in Elba, throwing the continent into turmoil. With no easy way back to England, they struggle to escape, but when Vincent is captured as a British spy, Jane realizes that their honeymoon has been a ruse to give them a reason to be in Europe. He has been using a new technique to capture glamour folds in glass in order to send vital information back to England, where the court has great interest in the political unrest in the region. 
Left with no outward salvation, Jane is left to overcome her own delicate circumstances and use her glamour to rescue her husband from prison…and hopefully prevent her newly built marriage from getting stranded on the shoals of another country's war.

Looks like a really fun book... a sequel to Shades of Milk and Honey Shades of Milk and Honey in which Jane rescues her sister and falls in love herself. Has anyone read this? What did you think?  The sequel looks so great with Jane now rescuing her husband... Muahahahaha!!
