Waiting on Wednesday, #42


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.


Here's my selection for this week...


Uncharted by Tracey Garvis-Graves
Expected Publication: July 2, 2013
Publisher: Penguin
Tracey Garvis Graves - and Anna and T.J. - return in this companion novella to the New York Times bestseller On the Island

When twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all.


Calia Reed wasn't part of Owen's plans. The beautiful British girl - on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James - made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn't know anything about the life he left behind.


But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago.


And when Owen shows up at Anna and T.J.'s door with an incredible story to tell, everyone involved will learn just how much their lives are intertwined.

At the risk of melting some snowflakes here at WinterHaven, I just had to spotlight Unchartered for this week's WoW. I love.love.loved Tracey Garvis-Graves first novel "On the Island," and if this book is anything like her first, I know I'll be locking myself in my room with this story. I can't wait for this second book by an author that left an impact on me almost a year ago. Also, to hear we get a glimpse of Covet in this book... I'm even more excited!! I can't wait to get my hands on this book!!

Sooo, what book are you waiting on? Be sure to link me up!
