Can't Wait / Waiting on Wednesday | Seventh Edition

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Hello, readers and followers! Happy Wednesday - and welcome. As we do every Tuesday with Top Ten Tuesday (only now the popular meme is going on hiatus *sad face*), this day, we're joining the "Waiting On" fun with Can't Wait Wednesday. 

Today Finding Wonderland is joining my Bookstagram (check out our July challenge!) partner in crime, Tressa of Wishful Endings with Can't Wait Wednesday. 

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)

For today's meme, we turn the spotlight on a novel that releases, really not too far into the future. 

Nicole Deese's upcoming contemporary romance, A New Shade of Summer. As a fan of Nicole's, The Promise of Rayne and A Summer Remade (part of the Just One Summer novella collection), I'm eager to read this novel. Bonus, Nicole is a talented voice in the fiction business, and you all know, she writes my favorite genre (contemporary!), so that makes me all the more excited! 

(Plus, can we appreciate this adorable cover - and who else thinks the hero looks like Colin Egglesfield??)

Publisher: Waterfall 
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Adult Fiction)
Publication Date: September 2017

As an artist, Callie Quinn relies on inspiration to guide her wandering soul. This summer she accepts a short-term muralist job in her sister’s charming town to spend some much-needed time with her family. After meeting her nephew’s friend, Brandon, she’s eager to draw out his untapped artistic talents—however, it’s the boy’s straitlaced single father who could use a little color in his life.

Davis Carter may be the town’s favorite animal whisperer, but his experience is limited when it comes to understanding his preteen’s rebellious behavior. Desperate for a breakthrough, he follows the lead of a free spirit who claims to know the way into his son’s closed-off world. Soon, Davis isn’t the only one caught up in the hope of a new beginning.

Just as Callie considers trading her unattached existence for a life rich with promise and permanence, an unexpected visit from the past threatens to send her packing once again. Davis and Callie must learn to surrender their fears so they can find a love that will outlast the summer.  - Goodreads
