"Waiting On" Wednesday: Looking for Me

 "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:


Looking for Me
By Beth Hoffman
Publication Date: May 28

From Amazon:

Teddi Overman found her life’s passion for furniture in a broken-down chair left on the side of the road in rural Kentucky.  She learns to turn other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques, and opens her own graciously appointed shop in Charleston. Breathing new life into these discarded objects gives Teddi purpose, but has never alleviated the haunting uncertainty she’s felt in the years since her brother Josh’s mysterious disappearance. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi is drawn home to find him. It’s a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family—and to find herself at last.

Great pick! Love seeing other people's upcycled stuff - cool concept for a book!

Here’s my WoW!

Thanks for sharing!

That sounds good! I'm a upcycler (at least I think so) myself, but thankfully have no mysterious missing relatives. But what the two have in common sounds like it could be interesting. Hope you enjoy it!
