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 bagsed 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 soooo want to read this. It sounds like it will be such an engrossing read. I wonder what it all will mean for Jessica and her two sons and how the tragedy will affect them.

What is your pick this week??

The acclaimed author of Little Broken Things returns with another “race-to-the-finish family drama” (People) about a single mother who becomes embroiled in a mystery that threatens to tear apart what’s left of her family.

Jessica Chamberlain, newly separated and living with her two sons in a small Iowa town, can’t believe that a tragedy in another state could have anything to do with her. But when her phone rings one quiet morning, her world is shattered. As she tries to pick up the pieces and make sense of what went wrong, Jess begins to realize that a tragic death is just the beginning. Soon she is caught in a web of lies and half-truths—and she’s horrified to learn that everything leads back to her seven-year-old adopted son, Gabriel.

Years ago, Gabe’s birth mother requested a closed adoption and Jessica was more than happy to comply. But when her house is broken into and she discovers a clue that suggests her estranged husband was in close contact with Gabe’s biological mother, she vows to uncover the truth at any cost. A harrowing story of tenacious love and heartbreaking betrayal, You Were Always Mine is about the wars we wage to keep the ones we love close, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Jodi Picoult.

    Ooh this does sound good, and after reading the blurb that title (and the cover frankly) both look rather chilling!

  2. verushka

    Whew, this sounds Brilliant! It kind of made my hair stand on end when I read it all came back to Gabriel, her son

  3. Suzie

    I had the privilege of sitting in a session that Nicole Baart co-taught a couple years ago. This one sounds fantastic.

  4. Angela

    That was a twist, with the adopted son! Sounds so good! And I enjoy both Liane Moriarty and Jodi Picoult.

  5. Laura

    It sounds like an interesting book. Kind of creepy about it going back to her son. Hope you enjoy it!

  6. The Candid Cover

    I haven’t read any of this author’s books before, but I am really interested in them. This sounds like a good one. Thanks for sharing it! 🙂

  7. Sam@WLABB

    Well, that sounds like a twisted and tangled web of lies. Seriously, they had me when they named dropped Liane Moriarty.

  8. Maria Behar

    AMAZING pick, Jenea!! You know, I don’t usually read this kind of thing, but this one sounds absolutely riveting!! I don’t have kids, whether mine or adopted, but I can imagine how a mother would feel if there were any chance her child — whether adopted or biological — might be taken away from her. And this is what appears to be the case here. Maybe I’m reading between the lines, but I think I’m on the right track.

    I also love that cover!! 🙂 🙂

    Thanks for featuring this book! I think we’ll both enjoy it!

    Thanks as well for commenting on my CWW post!! HUGS!! <3 <3 🙂 🙂
