"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Sweetheart Deal


"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:


The Sweetheart Deal
By Polly Dugan

Publication Date: May 19

From Amazon:

Leo has long joked that, in the event of his death, he wants his best friend Garrett, a lifelong bachelor, to marry his wife, Audrey. One drunken night, he goes so far as to make Garrett promise to do so. Then, 12 years later, Leo, a veteran firefighter, dies in a skiing accident. 

As Audrey navigates her new role as widow and single parent, Garrett quits his job in Boston and buys a one-way ticket out west. Before long, Audrey's feelings for Garrett become more than platonic, and Garrett finds himself falling for Audrey, her boys, and their life together in Portland. When Audrey finds out about the drunken pact from years ago, though, the harmless promise that brought Garrett into her world becomes the obstacle to his remaining in it.

This one sounds like a cute story...and a bit of a twist on the 'terminally ill wife seeking new spouse for her husband' theme I've seen before. Thanks for sharing!

Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Sounds like a heartwarming story.

Camille Flores said...

This one sounds like such a sweet story. I'm always apprehensive about this kind of set-up but I hope the author delivers well and you'll enjoy reading it. :)

Aizel Camille Macaldo said...

This sounds interesting and heart-breaking. :)

Okay, so... I don't really find this all that cute. There's something really sad about this premise. I don't think I could read it without feeling terribly for Leo.

Here's my post.

Cheers,

Can understand her doubting him a little once she finds out about the promise. Hope it has a happy ending!

Kay said...

Hmmm...I think I'd have to see how I fared in the first 50 pages or so. Sometimes books like this really click with me and sometimes not. It could be very sweet though.

This has lifetime movie potential written all over it. Sounds like it'd be a tear jerker for sure.

I'm not sure this is my thing, but it sounds interesting! I hope it's as good as you anticipate!

Lisa Mandina said...

In a way this reminds me of the movie with Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. Not my type of read, but I know people who would enjoy it!

Cristina Trujillo said...

Definitely sounds like something I would read! Can't wait for the release :)

This sounds like a great one to add to my TBR. A new twist on a widow finding new love.

Great WOW Pick. This one sounds like a beautiful bitter sweet story and I love the cover.
