It is wednesday and time to participate in Jill's meme at Breaking the Spine ~"Waiting on Wednesday" where we talk about the books that are to be released that we can't wait to read. I get so many good idea's to add to my wishlist when I visit the other bloggers.
This week I found out this book was due out yesterday but since I had it picked already to discuss I figured it would be o.k. After all, I am still waiting for it to come in. One of my favorite authors Richard Paul Evans has a new one and it sounds
Popular Evans offers up another magical novel, this one set in the 1980s, in time for the holidays. Beth Cardall’s life seems charmed, until she finds out that her perfect husband Marc has been unfaithful to her, and that their beautiful daughter Charlotte is sick with a mysterious illness that baffles every doctor. Then Marc’s unexpected and swift death from pancreatic cancer leaves Beth in financial straights. So she’s in no mood for romance when she meets an enigmatic, handsome stranger on Christmas day, but the man, who tells her his name is Matthew, is both persistent and charming in his pursuit of her. He tells her he’s a widower still grieving over the loss of his beloved wife, whose identity will shock Beth––and readers––to the core. The unexpected twist propels the novel forward, making the book impossible to put down. Though the ending ties everything up a bit too neatly, Evans’ many fans will enjoy this inventive, heartwarming tale. --Kristine Huntley
