Can’t Wait Wednesday: The Lies We Told by Camilla Way

It’s that time of the week when we sister up with Traveling Sisters, Christina and Kim and talk about a book we can’t wait to read. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme that is hosted by  Wishful Ending.

Today Kim over at It’s All About The Thrill and I are so excited to talk about The Lies We Told by Camilla Way. Christina over at Recipe and a Read will be joining in with another book we can’t wait to read.

Norma got this one from book of the month and all it took was an I want to read this one….I was all over it and now it’s an upcoming Traveling Friends group read.  Now how does Norma get book of the month well she really does have a book fairy who magically makes these books appear for her just out of the kindness of her heart.  You know who you are and we love you!!

On to more about this book.  We haven’t read Watching Edie but have heard some really good things about it.  I am thinking we will need to put it on our TBR list in the new year.  A few friends have mentioned they really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read The Lies We Told.  It should be a great group read.  As always if anyone wants to join in with us, you can find The Travelings Friends group on Goodreads.

About the book

The highly acclaimed author of Watching Edie returns with a new novel of dark psychological suspense that explores how those closest to us have the most to hide…

When Clara’s boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he’s left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he’s been kidnapped. Then Luke’s older sister, Emily, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears.

Emily wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened–even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke’s mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.

Can’t Wait Wednesday: Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty #travelingfriendsread #BookBloggers

It’s that time of week when we sister up with Traveling Sisters Christina and Kim and talk about a book we can’t wait to read. Can’t Wait Wednesday is a meme that is hosted by  Wishful Ending.

However, Kim over at It’s All About The Thrill  is unwell today and we might need to catch up with her later. Christina over at Recipe and a Read will be joining in with another book we can’t wait to read.

In the Traveling Freinds group, we can’t wait to read Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty.  Through my book travels, I have seen some mixed reviews for this and I am really curious to see how this read will go.  Some of our most interesting discussions often have had some mixed feeling towards a book.  I think this just might end up being one of them.  With Liane Moriarty being one of our favorite authors how could we not read this one?

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

Could ten days at a health resort really change you forever? In Liane Moriarty’s latest page-turner, nine perfect strangers are about to find out…

Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.

Frances Welty, the formerly best-selling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart, and an exquisitely painful paper cut. She’s immediately intrigued by her fellow guests. Most of them don’t look to be in need of a health resort at all. But the person that intrigues her most is the strange and charismatic owner/director of Tranquillum House. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer – or should she run while she still can?

It’s not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question.

Combining all of the hallmarks that have made her writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Liane Moriarty’s Nine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton @about_thethrill #travelingfriendsread #BookBloggers

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and that we have yet to read.  It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today we are sistering up with Kim @It’s All About the Thrill to share in our excitement for another upcoming group read for a book by Sharon J. Bolton that we can’t wait to read.  Our group read for The Craftsman is underway and it’s a hit with all of us so far.  Now we are so excited to get started on Daisy in Chains.  Daisy in Chains has been on our radar to read for Norma and I since we read and loved Dead Woman Walking.  We both bought the book and it’s been spending some time on our much-loved shelve of books waiting for the perfect time to read it.  Soon that perfect time is coming and I feel there will be some cheering going on in the coulee when we start reading this one.

Daisy in Chains by Sharon J. Bolton

From Goodreads

Famous killers have fan clubs.

Hamish Wolfe is no different. Locked up for the rest of his life for the abduction and murder of three young women, he gets countless adoring letters every day. He’s handsome, charismatic and very persuasive. His admirers are convinced he’s innocent, and that he’s the man of their dreams.

Who would join such a club?

Maggie Rose is different. Reclusive and enigmatic; a successful lawyer and bestselling true-crime writer, she only takes on cases that she can win.

Hamish wants her as his lawyer, he wants her to change his fate. She thinks she’s immune to the charms of a man like this. But maybe not this time . . .
