“Waiting on” Wednesday is an event created and hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. That’s putting it nicely! This is going to be a book I’m drooling over, waiting for it to be released.
Author: Stephanie Lawton
Publication date: June 7th
Summary (by Goodreads):
Julianne counts the days until she can pack her bags and leave her old-money, tradition-bound Southern town where appearance is everything and secrecy is a way of life. A piano virtuoso, she dreams of attending a prestigious music school in Boston. Failure is not an option, so she enlists the help of New England Conservatory graduate Isaac Laroche to help her.
She can’t understand why he suddenly gave up Boston’s music scene to return to the South. He doesn’t know her life depends on escaping it. Julianne must face down madness from without, just as it threatens from within. Isaac must resist an inappropriate attraction, but an indiscretion at a Mardi Gras ball—the pinnacle event for Mobile’s elite—forces their present wants and needs to collide with sins of the past.
Why I can’t wait:
I think I’m just so excited about a girl who wants to be a piano virtuoso! I’ll I’ve been reading about lately are books about the death of the world or supernatural beings. After being a music major myself at a little college, I feel like I could bond with Julianne! Plus the cover doesn’t hurt! 🙂
What book are you counting down the days for?
