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 . . . 

Someone Knows 
Release Date:  April 9, 2019
Publisher:  Penguin Publishing Group

From  From the New York Times-bestselling author comes a pulse-pounding domestic thriller about a group of friends who have been bound for twenty years by a single secret--and will now be undone by it. Someone Knows is an emotional exploration of friendship and family, as well as a psychological exploration of guilt and memory.

Twenty years ago, in an upscale suburb of Philadelphia, four teenagers spent a summer as closest friends: drinking, sharing secrets, testing boundaries. When a new boy looked to join them, they decided to pull a prank on him, convincing him to play Russian roulette as an initiation into their group. They secretly planned to leave the gun unloaded--but what happened next would change each of them forever.

Now three of the four reunite for the first time since that horrible summer. The guilt--and the lingering question about who loaded the gun--drove them apart. But after one of the group apparently commits suicide with a gun, their old secrets come roaring back. One of them is going to figure out if the new suicide is what it seems, and if it connects to the events of that long-ago summer. Someone knows exactly what happened--but who? And how far will they go to keep their secrets buried?
My thoughts:  Lisa Scottoline is a master storyteller and I never miss a chance to read one of her standalone novels.

  1. It's hard to pass up a Lisa Scottoline book! This sounds like it will be another good one! I hope you enjoy it, Catherine. Have a great week!

  2. I hadn't heard yet about this new one by Lisa Scottoline. It sounds very good and, yes, it immediately goes on my list.

  3. This a a new-to-me author. I'll have to check out her books!

  4. I've heard so many good things about this author. I really should give her a try. Do you have a recommendation on one to start with?

  5. I'd try one of her recent stand-alones, One Perfect Lie. I read it a little while ago and it was a real page turner. If you want to get into one of her series, then I'd recommend Everywhere That Mary Went, which is the first book in the Rosato and Associates series.

  6. Wow, another one from one of my favorite authors is now on my list! April is so far away, though! Sigh.

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. I've heard such good things about Scottoline's suspense books and I really want to try one!
