Waiting on Wednesday: More Like Her by Liza Palmer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

More Like Her by Liza Palmer

Anticipated Release Date: April 17, 2012

Sometimes, the perfect dream turns out to be a perfect nightmare . . .

To Francis the height of female perfection is Emma Dunham. She’s beautiful, successful, and has the most thoughtful and handsome husband on the planet. Emma is everything that Francis, recently dumped with spectacular drama by her boyfriend, wants to be. Her fellow teachers-Lisa, a professional so career focused she doesn’t have time for a family, and Jill, whose unexpected pregnancy may hold devastating consequences for her marriage-think so too.

But what Francis, Lisa, and Jill don’t know is that Emma has a secret. Her home life is nothing like the suburban postcard it seems. And that perfect husband is about to become a killer. And the victim is none other than the perfect Emma.

In the aftermath, the trio of friends realizes they must come to terms with the secrets of their own lives. Yet how can they pick up the pieces and move forward when they know that everything they’ve counted on and believed in is nothing like what it seems?

It’s rare that I feature an adult fiction title in my WoW posts, but Liza Palmer is one of my favorite fiction writers, and there’s no way I’d miss out on featuring one of her books on my blog.  Granted, I’m not sure how I feel about the premise of this novel–most of Palmer’s other works have been stories featuring hard stuff lightened by humor and sharp wit.  This is definitely a different approach for her, but I’m excited to see what she’ll do with it.

What are you waiting on this week?
