Waiting on Wednesday--New Fiction

The Waiting on Wednesday concept is a weekly feature of the Breaking the Spine blog.  It's a great way to share information about a forthcoming title that is on my radar screen with other readers.

Today's anticipated book:

The Truth About Love & Lightning by Susan McBride
The Truth About Love and Lightning: A Novel

Publication Date:  February 12, 2013
Publisher:  William Morrow Paperbacks
Preorder now from online and bricks and mortar bookstores

Susan McBride, author of Little Black Dress and The Cougar Club, gives us her most unforgettable novel to date with this deliciously emotional story of family, forgiveness, love, and magic. 

As far as Gretchen Brink is concerned, the tornado that just ripped through her land has nothing on the storms of a different sort happening all around her. Her grown daughter, Abby, has returned home with news that she's pregnant, and no, she's not sure whether she's going to marry the father. A man with no memory has been dropped practically on her doorstep. And the not-so-little white lie she's been telling for years is about to catch up with her. 

Abby is sure that the mysterious man is her long-lost father, Sam, who has finally returned just when she needs him most. As Abby, Gretchen, and the Man Who Might Be Sam get closer, the lie Gretchen told all those years ago begins to haunt her. When her secrets come out, and Sam's past is finally revealed, will it tear down this fragile life they've built—or will the truth bring them all closer together? 

My thoughts:   Susan McBride's previous novels have entertained readers and earned her a following in the women's fiction genre.  Her stories are sprinkled with emotion, humor, and the occasional touch of magic.  This forthcoming book about family relationships promises to expand upon her trademark talent.

Enjoy life with books.
