Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday event, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.
Every week, we gather around the blogosphere and search out the upcoming book releases, sharing our thoughts and blurbs. Today I am eagerly awaiting a book from an author recently added to my favorites list: Lisa Jewell. Her upcoming release, due out on June 7, 2016, is The Girls.
Synopsis: Imagine that you live on a picturesque communal garden square, an oasis in urban London where your children run free, in and out of other people’s houses. You’ve known your neighbors for years and you trust them. Implicitly. You think your children are safe. But are they really?
On a midsummer night, as a festive neighborhood party is taking place, preteen Pip discovers her thirteen-year-old sister Grace lying unconscious and bloody in a hidden corner of a lush rose garden. What really happened to her? And who is responsible?
Dark secrets, a devastating mystery, and the games both children and adults play all swirl together in this gripping novel, packed with utterly believable characters and page-turning suspense. Fans of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes will be captivated by The Girls, the next unforgettable novel by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jewell.
I hope to get an e-ARC of this one, which I have requested from NetGalley…because I don’t think I can wait until June. What do you think?
