"Waiting On" Wednesday: Out of Warranty
"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:
Out of Warranty
Publication Date: January 22
Beloved author Haywood Smith's Out of Warranty is a witty social satire that's right on topic for anyone who's ever had to deal with health insurance claims. Out of Warranty sends up the health insurance industry, the medical profession, and falling apart ten years before Medicare. To quote widowed Cassie Jones: "If you have anything weird wrong with you in this country, you'd better be Canadian."
When medical costs eat up all of Cassie's money, she decides she must remarry for health insurance, but her fix-ups and e-dates are unsuccessful, despite the grudging help of fellow patient Jack, a reclusive, one-legged curmudgeon on the same appointment schedule at her specialist's. When dating doesn't work out, Cassie comes up with a pragmatic but unconventional solution. As always with Haywood Smith's books, there are plenty of laughs and lots of heart.
