"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Other Half


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


The Other Half
By Sarah Rayner

Publication Date: March 25

From Amazon:

Chloe, bright, hip and single, is a feature writer with ambitions to launch a magazine of her own. When she meets James, her potential new boss, she knows she shouldn't mix business with pleasure, but finds it impossible to resist.
 
Maggie appears to have it all.  She's beautiful, a talented writer, and has a gorgeous husband. But something's not quite right: his job as a magazine publisher is keeping him in the city until late most evenings, and some nights he doesn't come home at all...
 
Told in the alternating voices of the mistress and the wife, this story of an affair is a sharp, seductive take on modern love.
 
Who, if anyone, comes out unscathed?


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

From the blurb I don't think this is one I would enjoy, but I do like the cover.

Not my cup of tea (it would probably depress me to be honest) but I can see why one'd be interested. The cover is pretty. :)

I haven't heard of this one before but I really love the sound of it. I'm not usually one for cheating stories but this one definitely has me intrigued. I have One Moment, One Morning, another book by the same author, on my TBR. Thanks for sharing!

That's very interesting that the story is told from those two perspectives. Talk about an emotional ride.
