"Waiting On" Wednesday: A Stranger Like You

"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:

A Stranger Like You
By Elizabeth Brundage
Publication Date: August 5

From Amazon:

Hedda Chase is a top-flight executive producer at Gladiator Films, fast-tracked in the business since she graduated from Yale. An aggressive businesswoman, she recently pulled the plug on a film project initiated by one of her predecessors. The screenwriter on the project was Hugh Waters, a wannabe with a dead-end marriage and a day job at an insurance company. This script was his ticket out--until Hedda tampered with his plans, claiming his violence was over the top, his premise not credible, and his ending implausible. Hugh decides to prove otherwise by staging his script's ending and casting Hedda Chase as the victim. He flies to Los Angeles and finds Hedda, kidnaps her, and locks her in the trunk of her vintage BMW in the parking lot at LAX. He leaves the keys in the ignition, the parking ticket on the dash, and lets "destiny" take its course.

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

I read one of Brundage's other books (The Doctor's Wife or something like that) and it was better than I had thought when I picked it up. Much darker that I had anticipated.

This is my first time participating in this meme but I've enjoyed seeing it on other blogs ... even though it just adds to an already huge wish list pile.

I intended to post you a bit of observation so as to thank you so much as before regarding the magnificent pointers you’ve provided here. It’s strangely open-handed with you to offer freely exactly what a few people would have distributed as an e book in order to make some dough for themselves, primarily considering the fact that you might well have tried it in case you decided. Those smart ideas in addition acted like a easy way to fully grasp that other people have the identical eagerness just like my personal own to grasp more in terms of this problem. I think there are lots of more pleasurable times ahead for individuals who looked over your website.

would like to show my appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this type of situation. After looking through the the net and seeing methods which were not pleasant, I figured my life was over. Living minus the answers to the problems you’ve sorted out by way of your entire short article is a crucial case, and those that might have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn’t come across your web site. Your actual capability and kindness in maneuvering all the pieces was vital. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this high quality and results-oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to refer your site to anyone who requires counselling about this issue.

My wife and i ended up being so fortunate that Jordan managed to deal with his inquiry out of the precious recommendations he was given out of the blog. It’s not at all simplistic just to find yourself giving away tactics which often a number of people have been trying to sell. And we realize we’ve got the writer to be grateful to because of that. All of the explanations you made, the easy website menu, the friendships your site help engender – it’s got most fabulous, and it’s really aiding our son in addition to the family understand the topic is enjoyable, and that’s really pressing. Thank you for the whole lot!

I simply needed to appreciate you again. I’m not certain the things that I would have taken care of in the absence of the points contributed by you on my problem. It seemed to be the daunting problem for me, however , looking at a new specialized form you handled it took me to weep over fulfillment. I am grateful for this help and in addition trust you are aware of a powerful job you happen to be accomplishing training most people through the use of a site.
