Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well!



I came across this and of course I was drawn to the story line and the setting. It will be an emotional read for sure, but also sounds like it will be an inspirational one as well.

What are you waiting on this week?



The Husband Hour
By: Jamie Brenner
Expected Publication: April 24th 2018
Published: Little, Brown and Company
Genre: Adult, Chick-Lit, Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 368
Format: Harcover

When a young widow’s reclusive life in a charming beach town is interrupted by a surprise visitor, she is forced to reckon with dark secrets about her family, her late husband, and the past she tried to leave behind.

Lauren Adelman and her high school sweetheart, Rory Kincaid, are a golden couple. They marry just out of college as Rory, a star hockey player, earns a spot in the NHL. Their future could not look brighter when Rory shocks everyone-Lauren most of all-by enlisting in the U.S. Army. When Rory dies in combat, Lauren is left devastated, alone, and under unbearable public scrutiny.

Seeking peace and solitude, Lauren retreats to her family’s old beach house on the Jersey Shore. But this summer she’s forced to share the house with her overbearing mother and competitive sister. Worse, a stranger making a documentary about Rory tracks her down and persuades her to give him just an hour of her time.

One hour with filmmaker Matt Brio turns into a summer of revelations, surprises, and upheaval. As the days grow shorter and her grief changes shape, Lauren begins to understand the past-and to welcome the future.

    This sounds heartbreaking and uplifting all at once — and I hope it manages a balance of the two well. Sometimes, romance can to overshadow everything else, much to my frustration, especially when there’s such goodness to be explored, as there is here.

    Whoa! That synopsis has me hooked! It does sound like it will leave me in pieces, but it sounds like maybe the MC goes through the grieving process towards self discovery. I will have to check this one out, for sure! πŸ™‚

    Hope this is a good one! I always like a story where secrets come to light, but it sounds like this one might be so much more than that too.

  4. Lauren

    This one sounds fantastic! I love books that take place at the beach, and the emotional aspect seems like it’ll be good too. Hope you love it!
