"Waiting On" Wednesday: Bittersweet


"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:


Bittersweet
By Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

Publication Date: May 13

From Amazon:

On scholarship at a prestigious East Coast college, ordinary Mabel Dagmar is surprised to befriend her roommate, the beautiful, wild, blue-blooded Genevra Winslow. Ev invites Mabel to spend the summer at Bittersweet, her cottage on the Vermont estate where her family has been holding court for more than a century; it’s the kind of place where children twirl sparklers across the lawn during cocktail hour. Mabel falls in love with midnight skinny-dipping, the wet dog smell that lingers near the yachts, and the moneyed laughter that carries across the still lake while fireworks burst overhead. Before she knows it, she has everything she’s ever wanted:  friendship, a boyfriend, access to wealth, and, most of all, for the first time in her life, the sense that she belongs.
But as Mabel becomes an insider, a terrible discovery leads to shocking violence and reveals what the Winslows may have done to keep their power intact - and what they might do to anyone who threatens them. Mabel must choose: either expose the ugliness surrounding her and face expulsion from paradise, or keep the family’s dark secrets and make Ev's world her own.

Camille Flores said...

That's an intriguing story. I'm scared for the main character both for her safety and what it would mean for her to decide on what she really wants to do in that kind of situation. Thanks for sharing Jill :)

Wow, the synopsis started out so cute and fluffy and turned very dark, very quickly! Adding this to my wishlist now :)

I saw the cover of this one yesterday and it caught my eye. But I didn't read the synopsis until now! Sounds suspenseful!
Today my WoW is Summer House With Swimming Pool.
