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 ado, this week's Can't Wait For book is . . .
A Willing Murder 
Publisher:  Mira Books
Publication Date:  September 18, 2018
From Goodreads:   New York Times bestselling romance author Jude Deveraux makes her debut in the world of mystery with a story of old secrets, deadly grudges and an improbable group of friends who are determined to uncover the truth regardless of the consequences... 
Sara Medlar is a household name in romance, with millions of books sold. But lately, retirement has been boring her and she's found herself back in her hometown of Lachlan, Florida, remodeling the grand old mansion she'd admired as a child. It's much too big for her alone, but she'd die before letting anyone in town know that.Then Sara's niece Kate is offered a job in Lachlan--a start in what could be a very successful career in real estate. She accepts immediately, but with so little saved up, she'll have to approach her estranged yet incredibly famous aunt for a place to stay while she gets herself settled. But when she arrives at Sara's home, she finds she's not the only long-term houseguest. Jackson Wyatt already has his own room, and though it's impossible to deny his good looks and charm--he's clearly got her aunt wrapped around his finger--she's also never met anyone who irritates her quite like Jack does.However, when two skeletons are accidentally uncovered in the quiet town, this unlikely trio is suddenly thrust together by a common goal: to solve a mystery everyone else seems eager to keep under wraps. United by a sense of justice and the desire to right old wrongs, Sara, Kate and Jack will have to dig into Lachlan's murky past to unravel the small town's dark secrets and work to bring the awful truth to light.

My thoughts:  I'm curious to see how this popular romance writer applies her considerable talent to a new genre.  I'll be lining up to read this mystery in the fall.

  1. Deadly grudges and secrets! Yes, please!

  2. I saw this one recently too and read the blurb. I'm also curious at how this author will transition a bit. Good choice, Catherine!

  3. What a pretty cover! I haven't heard of this one

    Here's our WOW http://jennreneeread.blogspot.com/2018/04/waiting-on-wednesday-ash-princess-by.html

  4. This sounds really good! Is her writing anything like Susan Elizabeth Phillips? She was mostly romance and then the past couple of books had some suspense. This sound more suspense with some possible romance, but good either way.

    Thanks for linking up!
