"Waiting On" Wednesday: Wife-In-Law

"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:

Wife-In-Law

By Haywood Smith
Publication Date: September 13

From Amazon:

Neighbors Betsy Callison and Kat Ellis were oil and water when they met 35 years ago. Betsy was a prim, neat freak, Republican wife, and Kat was a wild, irreverent, hippie Democrat. But they soon discover common ground that creates a bond that lasts for decades. Until Betsy's husband leaves her for his secretary, then comes sniffing back around two years later and convinces newly widowed Kat to marry him! Not that Betsy wants him back, but it’s hard to move on when the newlyweds are flaunting their love right across the street. But there’s trouble brewing in Paradise, and no one knows philandering Greg better than his ex-wife Betsy. Can Betsy get involved in her best friend's marriage--even if it means helping her wife-in-law figure out the same man she shared a bed with for 30 years?

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

I love how the cover artwork fits the summary so well! I can totally see how Betsy would be wavering over 'she loves me, she loves me not' thoughts about her friend.

I posted "Murder by Mocha" in my first Waiting on Wednesday post! Have you read anything by Cleo Coyle?

Sasha Switz said...

Well this sounds interesting! I bet it will have lots of relationship drama. But really, who marrys their best friend's ex-husband? That's just rude.
