Waiting on Wednesday - All the Beautiful Lies



I'm posting a 'soon to be released' book on Wednesdays.  These will always be books that I am particularly looking forward to.  I'll be linking up to 'Can't-Wait Wednesday' hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and plan to take part in this each week.

This week's book is highly anticipated by me.  The author has written previous books that I have enjoyed very much - Her Every Fear and The Kind Worth Killing.  Both of them were written with themes from Hitchcock films.  I'm not sure if this one has that same vibe, but I'll be glad to see.  I'm waiting on:




Publication Date:  April 3rd

Harry Ackerson has always considered his stepmother Alice to be sexy and beautiful, in an "otherworldly" way. She has always been kind and attentive, if a little aloof in the last few years.

Days before his college graduation, Alice calls with shocking news. His father is dead and the police think it’s suicide. Devastated, Harry returns to his father’s home in Maine. There, he and Alice will help each other pick up of the pieces of their lives and uncover what happened to his father.

Shortly after he arrives, Harry meets a mysterious young woman named Grace McGowan. Though she claims to be new to the area, Harry begins to suspect that Grace may not be a complete stranger to his family. But she isn’t the only attractive woman taking an interest in Harry. The sensual Alice is also growing closer, coming on to him in an enticing, clearly sexual way.

Mesmerized by these two women, Harry finds himself falling deeper under their spell. Yet the closer he gets to them, the more isolated he feels, disoriented by a growing fear that both women are hiding dangerous—even deadly—secrets . . . and that neither one is telling the truth.

  18. I deleted my previous comment because it suddenly dawned on me that I've read Her Every Fear and plan to read The Kind Worth Killing. I had asked (in my deleted comment) if this was part of a series. Glad to know it's a stand-alone. Off to add it to my list. Thanks!

    1. I think there was a police character that overlapped, but that's all. Not a true series.
