Can't-Wait Wednesday

 
Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa at Wishful Endings which spotlights and discusses forthcoming books that bloggers are looking forward to reading. Generally it's about books that haven't been released yet. This meme is based on Waiting on Wednesday, formerly hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  
 
There are so many exciting new books on the horizon, so without further adieu, this week's Can't Wait For book is . . .
 
The Death of Mrs. Westaway  
Publisher:  Gallery/Scout Press
Publication Date:  May 29, 2018

From Goodreads:  From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, and The Lying Game comes Ruth Ware’s highly anticipated fourth novel.

On a day that begins like any other, Hal receives a mysterious letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. She realizes very quickly that the letter was sent to the wrong person—but also that the cold-reading skills she’s honed as a tarot card reader might help her claim the money.

Soon, Hal finds herself at the funeral of the deceased…where it dawns on her that there is something very, very wrong about this strange situation and the inheritance at the center of it.

Full of spellbinding menace and told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, this is an unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.
 
 
My thoughts:  I was totally consumed by the author's first two novels, In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10.  Ware is a captivating storyteller, and my plan is to read The Lying Game before this latest novel is published and then dive into the new release.
