Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly even hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming book releases that we are anticipating.My pick for the week:
Return to Paradise
by Simone Elkeles
Set to release in November 2010
Maggie and Caleb just went through the worst year of their lives. Hit by a car and starting life over with a limp, Maggie never thought she would forgive Caleb. But she did-and fell in love. What they shared was real. But Caleb wanted to be free from the past-and a terrible secret: he wasn't the one who hit Maggie. So he left Paradise-and Maggie-forever.
When Maggie and Caleb run into each other in a different town, they can't deny their true feelings. Will Maggie let Caleb get away again? Or will Caleb face the truth and return to Paradise
Leaving Paradise is the first novel in this series, and it's actually the only Simone Elkeles book I've yet to read. There's a reason for that. A friend of mine read the book and was very disappointed by the ending. I put off reading it because I like Simone Elkeles' books and I didn't want to be disappointed, and when I heard there would be a sequel, I decided to wait even longer. I plan to wait to read Leaving Paradise when Return to Paradise comes out, so that I can read them back to back!
So that's my pick of the week. What's yours?
