Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings   to spotlight upcoming releases we are excited about that we have yet to read.

The book I’m waiting on this week is…


Lauren Clark also writes under the name Laura McNeill, and she penned two of my favorite domestic suspense/thriller books in the last couple years, Center of Gravity and Sister Dear. Lauren was quiet for a year or two (probably writing, working full-time, and studying for a doctorate kept her a little busy!), but she burst back on the scene with a new book published in late summer, and I screamed when I found out about it. I’ll be reading this soon with some blogger friends. Anyone is welcome to join me. Did I mention how excited I am about this book?! Eek! p.s. Please don’t tell anyone, but I already snuck in two chapters.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Every day, I wake up certain of only three things:

I am responsible for my mother’s death.
My father has vanished.
Someone wants me dead.

I’m on the run. It’s me against the world.

I cannot let it break me.

When sixteen-year-old Olivia Jacobs and her celebrity chef father are brutally attacked after his French Quarter restaurant opening, the shell-shocked Olivia finds herself on the run on the streets of New Orleans.

Who wants her dead? And why?
