"Waiting On" Wednesday: Cleaning Nabokov's House

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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

Cleaning Nabokov's House
By Leslie Daniels
Publication Date: March 1

From Library Journal:

Barb Barrett left her husband because they couldn’t agree on how to load the dishwasher. In the divorce, he got the kids, the house, and the car, and she got her freedom. But she finds that freedom without her children is not all it’s cracked up to be. To begin the process of getting them back, she buys a house once occupied by Vladimir Nabokov. While cleaning the house she finds a baseball/love story written on index cards. Could Nabokov have been the author? Could she turn this find into financial stability?

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

That sounds really interesting, especially since they did find Nabakov cards recently..didn't they?

Baseball/love story sounds strange!
