Waiting on Wednesday Twenty-First Edition

Hello, readers and followers! Happy (almost) Wednesday. Welcome.

It’s again been a while since Finding Wonderland joined this fun meme. But a new week and a new Wednesday brings with it yet more bookish talk. Not that any of minds this, right?

Today’s feature is all about the books we’re “Waiting On” with Can’t Wait Wednesday. A meme Finding Wonderland occasionally takes part in.

Organized by the lovely Tressa of Wishful Endings, here’s another edition of Can’t Wait Wednesday.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released as well. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)

Today we feature a novel that is a long way off. But what can I say? When the cover reveals begin to show up for 2019 releases (how weird is this to type?), the excitement is real. Even for those that are very nearly a year away.

The feature is Dani Pettrey’s The Killing Tide. Some of you probably know how much I adore Dani’s novels, and the idea of this one is no different. I cannot wait to discover these new characters and a new setting from the talented pen of Pettrey.

Author: Dani Pettrey | Publisher: Bethany House
Genre: Fiction; Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: August 2019

When one Coast Guard officer is found dead and another goes missing, CGIS special agent Finn Walker faces his most dangerous and volatile crime yet. His only clues are what little evidence remains aboard the dead officer’s adrift cutter, and the direction the clues point will test him and the guard to their limits.

Complicating matters further is the arrival of investigative reporter Harper Grace. An unrelenting journalist who was nearly killed as the result of her last expose, Harper has been sent to Wilmington on the hunch of her boss that the Coast Guard is stonewalling the truth about the officers. An interview with the dead victim’s wife convinces her there’s a story worth uncovering, even if it means risking her life again.

Thrown together by the heinous crime, Finn and Harper can’t ignore the sparks or judgments flying between them, but will they be able to see past their preconceptions long enough to track down an elusive killer before they become his next mark? – Goodreads

Doesn’t this one sound fabulous? Needless to say I’m very excited to meet Harper and most anxious to discover a noble hero in Finn!

    I like it when mysteries take place on the water. Sounds like a fun mystery/ thriller!

  • Marsha Spohn October 24, 2018 at 7:31 am

    I don’t know this series or author — That is what I love about weekly memes, I get to discover new things.

    This really sounds like something I would read and enjoy, but I need to start at the beginning and a 2019 release date gives me some time. So, I’ll be checking out this author and see how far back I need to get caught up on. Thanks for a new find!

    I live Dani’s new cover and am looking forward to this series!

  • Barb (boxermommyreads) October 24, 2018 at 9:46 am

    I love the name Finn and this does sound good but you are right – that’s a long way off!

  • Dani October 24, 2018 at 5:02 pm

    Awww. Thanks SO much, Rissi. You’re such an awesome encourager for me.

  • Tressa @ Wishful Endings October 24, 2018 at 5:31 pm

    Such a great choice! I love the title and cover for this one. Kind of gives me chills…

    • Rissi JC October 30, 2018 at 11:00 pm

      Right?! Same for me – but in a good mystery-vibe kind of way. :)

  • Heather Pedersen October 25, 2018 at 9:08 am

    Ah, this looks good! I have yet to read one of her books that I did not like. I l really love her character development, and the occasional sneaky plot twists. ;)

  • Yomna @ Srishti and Yomna October 26, 2018 at 12:08 pm

    Wow this book sounds so good! Mystery with a bit of romance!! I can’t wait to check it out, great post!

  • Katiria Rodriguez October 30, 2018 at 9:07 pm

    Great pick this is the first time I heard about this book and it really looks and sounds absolutely fantastic, I hope you do enjoy it when you get the chance to read it. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.

    • Rissi JC October 30, 2018 at 11:11 pm

      Doesn’t it? I love the colors and the stark white, which is a “fresh” look, but yet the cover still looks a bit “creepy.” (An appropriate feeling for a mystery I’d say.) Thank you for the visit, Katiria. :)
