Can’t Wait Wednesday: 07 June 2017

Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.

The text message is just three words: I need you.

Isa drops everything, takes her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten. She spent the most significant days of her life at boarding school on the marshes there, days which still cast their shadow over her now.

Something terrible has been found on the beach. Something which will force Isa to confront her past, together with the three best friends she hasn’t seen for years, but has never forgotten. Theirs is no cosy reunion: Salten isn’t a safe place for them, after what they did.

At school the girls used to play the Lying Game. They competed to convince people of the most outrageous stories. But for some, did the boundary between fact and fantasy become too blurred?

And how much can you really trust your friends?

Why I Can’t Wait: 

I really enjoyed The Woman in Cabin 10 so can’t wait for Ruth Ware’s newest book. It sounds like it will be another fast-paced thriller that I can tear through in a couple of days! Perfect summer reading.

Release Date: 15/06/17

    I haven’t read anything by this author before. I might need to line up some thrillers for October to read. At least you don’t have to wait too long to read this one. Hope you have a great week!
