"Waiting On" Wednesday: Birds of Paradise
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Birds of Paradise
Publication Date: September 6
In the tropical paradise that is Miami, Avis and Brian Muir are still haunted by the disappearance of their ineffably beautiful daughter, Felice, who ran away when she was thirteen. Now, after five years of modeling tattoos, skateboarding, clubbing, and sleeping in a squat house or on the beach, Felice is about to turn eighteen. Her family—Avis, an exquisitely talented pastry chef; Brian, a corporate real estate attorney; and her brother, Stanley, the proprietor of Freshly Grown, a trendy food market—will each be forced to confront their anguish, loss, and sense of betrayal. Meanwhile, Felice must reckon with the guilty secret that drove her away, and must face her fear of losing her family and her sense of self forever.
This multilayered novel about a family that comes apart at the seams—and finds its way together again—is totally involving and deeply satisfying, a glorious feast of a book.

Í don't ususally read mysteries, but it sounds like there's a lot happeing in this one. I'm already wondering what's going on. Nice pick.
This sounds like a really great character driven read.
That actually sounds like a pretty good book. I love mysteries, and as an aspiring baker and pastry chef, the character of Avis was a big pull for me!
That sounds interesting!
