"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Odds
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Publication Date: January 19
Valentine's weekend, Art and Marion Fowler flee their Cleveland suburb for Niagara Falls, desperate to recoup their losses. Jobless, with their home approaching foreclosure and their marriage on the brink of collapse, Art and Marion liquidate their savings account and book a bridal suite at the Falls' ritziest casino for a second honeymoon. While they sightsee like tourists during the day, at night they risk it all at the roulette wheel to fix their finances...and save their marriage. A tender yet honest exploration of faith, forgiveness and last chances, The Odds is a reminder that love, like life, is always a gamble.
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

That book totally sounds like a winner!
Hm, haven't heard of this one. Sounds interesting. :)
Sounds like there's a lot going on here.
I don't think I'd be as brave or as crazy as the protagonists in gambling my future away. But it sounds like a crazy good book. :)
Haven't heard of this one before but nice choice!
This sounds like a great one for this day and age. Enjoy!
I'm always impressed by your choice of books... Way back in college, I could've chosen the same... It reminds me of those simple and peaceful moments of my life... :P (weird, right?) =)
This does not sound like a book I would enjoy, but maybe when I get older :) Great pick, though!
YAY, Niagara Falls! I beamed when I saw that in the summary because I'm a proud Canadian and I live near the falls. They're so pretty!
This book sounds like such a sweet read! Life IS like a gamble sometimes, and love definitely is. I really hope you like it when it comes out because it sounds crazy good, Jill! Like always. :)
Here's my WOW!
Couldn't help but laugh at "the Falls' ritziest casino" - having been there, I can honestly say it's nicer than most of the government run casinos in Ontario, but nothing like Vegas. :)
Intereting as I've never heard of this. Awesome choice.
I've already got this one on my list. Nice choice!
That sound like a move that will lead to disaster but this is fiction. Wonder how it works out.reciept
This one sounds good! Love the cover, too!
That should be a good one! I've never read O'Nan's work, but have heard wonderful things about it.
This one sounds good! Great pick!
Sounds like a great book to read esp during these tough economic times.
The Odds sounds wonderful! Thanks for sharing....
I've never heard about that book before, but it sounds awesome! I'll definitely put it on my to read list ;)
I saw this one this week or last on Shelf Awareness or somewhere and it caught my eye too. Thanks for reminding me about it.
Sounds like a very heartfelt read!
Oooo That sounds cool! and different. I bet it's good. Niagra Falls and Casinos to save a marriage. Interesting.
Oh, that book sounds as if it can't end happily, but I hope it does! Nice pick.
This sounds really good. I love stories where people rally to fight for what they want... which is kind of how this sounds. I'm not sure gambling is the way to go but I like the idea of couple pulling together, when their relationship is fragile...

This book sounds amazing! I haven't heard about it before. You have some interesting reads here :)
That looks like a great book!
Your pick this week sounds really interesting. And I love that is takes place in Niagara Falls!
Sounds interesting! Great choice!
I do like the sound of that book ... I'm intrigued!
Sounds like a different kind of storyline...I love Niagra Falls!
Have fun reading!
I read this one last month and really enjoyed it. It was my first O'Nan, but it certainly won't be my last. Enjoy it!
Never heard of this one, but it sounds like it could be fairly interesting.
I've yet to hear of this one, but I'm already stoked! So adding this to my 'waiting-for' shelf!

The Odds sounds different to the stuff I normally read, but definitely sounds good! :)

That sounds like a great read!
Reading Lark's WOW
Jill, I am a big O'Nan fan so am looking forward to this as well. Sorry i did not get to participate today. We just got our internet back today after Saturday's storm, so I am thrilled I can visit your blog again.
Haven't heard of this one before. Sounds awesome though.
I've been WoW everywhere, so decided to participate, as I'm obsessing about a book this week! Ugh!
The book sounds amazing... but kind of heartbreaking.
that book sounds really interesting!
Thanks for the welcome, Jill. Your choice is appropriate for these trying economic times.

A great WoW! it sounds interesting.
