Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

The book I’m eagerly anticipating this week is Monarch Beach, by Anita Hughes, to be released on June 19, 2012.  It is a story of unexpected (accidental) events that change the course of a life.

When Amanda Blick, a young mother and kindhearted San Francisco heiress, finds her gorgeous French chef husband wrapped around his sous-chef, she knows she must flee her life in order to rebuild it. The opportunity falls into her lap when her (very lovable) mother suggests Amanda and her young son, Max, spend the summer with her at the St. Regis Resort in Laguna Beach. With the waves right outside her windows and nothing more to worry about than finding the next relaxing thing to do, Amanda should be having the time of her life—and escaping the drama. But instead, she finds herself faced with a kind, older divorcee who showers her with attention… and she discovers that the road to healing is never simple. This is the sometimes funny, sometimes bitter, but always moving story about the mistakes and discoveries a woman makes when her perfect world is turned upside down.


I love these kinds of stories.  Tales of heartache that can turn into joy again, once healing takes place.  Sometimes a new direction can be even better than the one you had before.

What are you eagerly anticipating?  What book is rocking your world?


  1. I don’t usually read this kind of books, but now that you’ve brought it to my attention, I think it’d be interesting 🙂
