"Waiting On" Wednesday: Never Tell a Lie


This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Never Tell a Lie
By Hallie Ephron
Publication Date: January 6

A young couple are about to have their first child. A woman from their past shows up at their yard sale. She goes inside their house, and she never comes out. Relentlessly fast-paced and disturbingly creepy, Hallie's new standalone is a page-turning thrill ride about how well we know the people we love, and how far we are willing to go to protect the secrets of our past.

I'm not a huge fan of thrillers, but ever since I read the description for this one, I've been intrigued. Just the phrase "...and she never comes out" sucks me in...

Has anyone read her 1001 Books for Every Mood?

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Be forewarned most books I read are by and about African Americans...but I do read other books from the NYTimes best-sellers list. ;)

Whenever I see a blurb with a description like that, or one that promises secrets revealed or the like, I'm hooked senseless :-)

That description has intrigued me as well.
