Waiting on Wednesday - I'll Keep You Safe



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.

The book I've selected this week is from a favorite author, Peter May.  Even though the title hints at a romantic concept, it's not a very Valentine-ish book.  Sorry!  The story takes place partly in my favorite Peter May setting, the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.  Our mystery group will be reading Peter May books for our May meeting.  Yes, I know - I didn't even think about that when I planned it.  Ha!  This book will definitely be one I'll complete by then.  I'm waiting on:




Publication Date:  March 6th

Friends since childhood, and lovers and business partners as adults, Naimh and Ruairidh are owners of a small Hebridean company, Ranish Tweed, that weaves its own very special version of Harris Tweed. It is a very small company but their fabrics have become internationally sought after as a niche brand in the world of fashion and haute couture.

As they prepare for an important showing at the Première Vision fabric fair, held in Paris every year, they fight in their hotel room--Niamh suspects Ruairdh of having an affair with a Russian fashion designer they work with but he insists this is a lie and storms off. Moments later, Niamh watches in horror as the car containing her partner and fashion designer explodes in a ball of flame.

With Niamh a prime suspect in the murder, the Parisian police hound her even after she returns to Harris to bury the pitiful remains of her lover and business partner. Amid the grief and struggles that follow, she begins to suspect that things are not what they seem; and when there is an attempt on her life, she becomes convinced that what seemed like a terrorist attack on her lover might be something more personal by far...

    1. Peter May is a great crime novel author. If you ever read those, his are quite suspenseful.

  5. This book IS about a marriage, but it's definitely not Valentine-sy. LOL.

    I didn't end up liking this one as much as I have other of May's books. I think it's because a lot of it takes place away from the Hebrides and has to do with outsiders. I'm like a Hebridean -- no outlanders!! It's still an intriguing thriller, though.

    1. No outlanders. Check. I'm not a big fan of reading about Paris, but I'll try it since we also spend time in Scotland.

  20. This does sound intriguing! Paris and fabrics and mystery---not sure where you could go wrong there! :D

  21. You don't often see books partially set in the Outer Hebrides. I'm never keen on Paris settings with the Da Vinci Code being the exception!

    1. There you go, that's a good example!

  22. Oh this sounds good! It's a British mystery in Paris. How could I resist that?

  23. Ohh great pick. What a creepy cover, I absolutely love the black and white background and bold muster yellow color on the title of the book. Thank you so much for stopping by my WOW pick.

    1. Yes, all the covers on his books set in Scotland have a black and white photo cover. I think they are quite striking.

  24. This sounds very sad, as well as very intriguing, at the same time. The cover IS a bit creepy. It looks more like the cover of a horror novel. I might pick it up, although this is not my usual type of read. It does sound like it will have lots of plot twists, and those are always exciting! Thanks for featuring this book!! <3 <3

    Thanks as well for commenting on my "Can't Wait Wednesday" post!! <3 <3 :) :) So sorry for the late comment back.... :(

    1. Peter May writes great crime novels. However, they are not for everyone. Yes, I can see how the cover looks a bit like a horror cover. All his books set in the Outer Hebrides have b/w covers that are rather stark. :-)
