"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Underside of Joy
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
By Seré Prince Halverson
Publication Date: January 17
To Ella Beene, happiness means living in the northern California river town of Elbow with her husband, Joe, and his two young children. Yet one summer day Joe breaks his own rule--never turn your back on the ocean--and a sleeper wave strikes him down, drowning not only the man but his many secrets.
For three years, Ella has been the only mother the kids have known and has believed that their biological mother, Paige, abandoned them. But when Paige shows up at the funeral, intent on reclaiming the children, Ella soon realizes there may be more to Paige and Joe's story.
The Underside of Joy is not a fairy-tale version of stepmotherhood pitting good Ella against evil Paige, but an exploration of the complex relationship of two mothers.

Based on the title and then the summary it sounds as if perhaps the MC has been raising her dead husbands children with another women. Could be interesting.
This one sounds good - and maybe a little suspenseful.
Eeek. I accidentally put the title of my post instead of my name/blog!! I'm sorry, my brain's kinda fried already from too much school work.
That book sounds so sweet and touching! I love that it contrasts step-mothers against fairy tales (because step-parents aren't evil at all!) and I just adore the cover! It's so simple and pretty! :)
