Can't Wait Wednesday - The Huntress



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 Tressa's blog at Wishful Endings and plan to take part in this each week.

I'm going to resume participating in this meme after my break at the end of 2018.  I had thought that with a fresh focus away from 'new and shiny' books, my interest might wane, but I still have some books that I'd like to highlight.  I have gone ahead and switched over to Tressa's name of 'Can't Wait Wednesday' for the new year.

Our mystery group read and discussed Kate Quinn's The Alice Network last week.  I really enjoyed reading that story, set in World War I and also just after World War II.  I thought that the author did a good job with the dual timeline.  Her next book will soon be published.  This week, I can't wait for:


 

Publication Date:  February 26th

In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted…

Bold and fearless, Nina Markova always dreamed of flying. When the Nazis attack the Soviet Union, she risks everything to join the legendary Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on the invading Germans. When she is stranded behind enemy lines, Nina becomes the prey of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, and only Nina’s bravery and cunning will keep her alive.

Transformed by the horrors he witnessed from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials, British war correspondent Ian Graham has become a Nazi hunter. Yet one target eludes him: a vicious predator known as the Huntress. To find her, the fierce, disciplined investigator joins forces with the only witness to escape the Huntress alive: the brazen, cocksure Nina. But a shared secret could derail their mission unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.

Growing up in post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is determined to become a photographer. When her long-widowed father unexpectedly comes homes with a new fiancée, Jordan is thrilled. But there is something disconcerting about the soft-spoken German widow. Certain that danger is lurking, Jordan begins to delve into her new stepmother’s past—only to discover that there are mysteries buried deep in her family . . . secrets that may threaten all Jordan holds dear.

In this immersive, heart-wrenching story, Kate Quinn illuminates the consequences of war on individual lives, and the price we pay to seek justice and truth.

  2. Sounds like she's a very good author. I'm not into this time in history but I saw some of her older titles about Italy and Egypt which I'd like to check out further. Thanks for a good review.

  3. I've been hearing LOTS about this one. If you enjoy historical fiction, I bet you'll love it. Did you enjoy Hunting Party? I'm super curious about that one as well.

    1. I think I will like it, Barb. Ah - The Hunting Party - yes, I did like it. Had a real 'locked room' vibe and, of course, a 'Christie' feel. I guessed the solution pretty early on, but I'm fairly savvy about that. LOL

  10. I am interested in this one and was reading about it just recently. It was not available on NG, so I may have to wait until the library gets a copy.
