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 . . .
 
Beyond the Pale: A World of Spies Mystery 
Publisher:  Midnight Ink
Publication Date:  May 8, 2018

From Goodreads:  For college professors Hollis and Finn Larsson, a simple undercover errand becomes a deadly jaunt across Ireland in this edge-of-your-seat suspense novel from bestselling author Clare O'Donohue.

It's an easy, twenty-minute job. At least, that's the pitch from Interpol to professors Hollis and Finn Larsson. Going undercover to procure a priceless rare book manuscript means an all-expenses paid trip abroad. A little danger thrown into the mix may even spice up their marriage.

Soon after landing in the Emerald Isle, they realize the job is anything but easy. Their contact is a no-show and they're left with fifty thousand euros, a death threat, and some serious questions. Ducking and dodging their way across Ireland, Hollis and Finn must hunt down the priceless manuscript and a missing agent while trying to stay one step ahead of a dangerous and unknown enemy.
 
 
My thoughts:  This book combines so many of the elements I enjoy in a novel:  it's the start of a new series (A World of Spies); it's set in Ireland; the main characters are college professors; and the promise of intrigue and mystery.  Not to mention that the wait isn't too long--I've already placed a hold at my branch library.

  2. Catherine great job in securing consecutive books this is how I try to read my series too, one after the other. I feel I'm more invested when I read this way.

  3. Midnight Ink puts out good books! I don't usually pay attention to the publisher, but for some reason I notice when it's one of their books. This does sound good, and I'm glad you don't have to wait long for it. :-)

    1. I agree--and I also like Crooked Lane publishing. Some of the smaller houses have great series.

    1. There's a rugged beauty to Northern Ireland. I saw it first hand last summer, and would love to visit again.
