Waiting on Wednesday: What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick

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:

What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick

Expected Release Date: April 22, 2014

Gwen Castle’s Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her Nantucket-esque island this summer. He’s a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and housecleaners who keep the island’s summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she’ll never escape her past—or the island—Gwen’s dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true—about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself—with what really is.

This book has been on my radar FOREVER, but I wanted to both wait for a final-ish cover and closer to the book’s release date to feature it in a Waiting on Wednesday post.  I loved Huntley Fitzpatrick’s debut, and so of course I’d be waiting for her next release.  If you want a steamy contemporary romance with some meat to it, My Life Next Door is your answer.  This one looks to be in a similar vein, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be a ton of fun.

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I am excited for this one too! My Life Next Door was so sweet. A nice girly romance is always a welcome relief from all the Sci-Fi and horror that is flooding the teen market (I totally love all of that!). Great pick! ~Megan

  2. Great pick! This might be totally shallow but I so want to read this book based on that cover alone! 🙂 It’s so gorgeous! And it’s getting great reviews so far too! Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. I don’t think that’s shallow at all–I know that the saying is “don’t judge a book by its cover,” but with so many titles published every week, how else are you supposed to choose?
