Waiting on Wednesday #106

 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released.
 
 
House on Blackberry Hill (Jewell Cove, #1)
 
Summary:
 
When a young woman inherits a rundown mansion, the last thing she expects to find is the key to her heart…

Abby Foster is a fish out of water in the Maine coastal town of Jewell Cove. The crumbling Foster estate, left to her by a relative she never even knew, has everyone’s eyes on her—an eerie reminder of the long-buried family secrets that have haunted her…forever. Single, stunning, and sometimes too strong-willed for her own good, Abby’s plan is to sell the house and hightail it back to Nova Scotia. But another part of her is intrigued by the idea of starting over somewhere new—and finally learning the truth about her heritage.  

The House On Blackberry Hill

Enter Tom Arseneault. The best contractor in Jewell Cove, Tom is determined to restore the beauty and prestige of the Foster mansion—and maybe even work his charms on its beautiful new heir. The attraction between him and Abby is undeniable, and the more time Tom spends on the house the more he wants to be in it with her. But Abby’s not sure she can trust him—or anyone in Jewell Cove who seems to know more about her family history than she does. Home: Is it really where the heart is after all?

Why I'm Waiting:
 
I recently read a couple of Donna Alward's e-novellas and really enjoyed them, then I found out that she was releasing a new book in a brand new series at the end of April I looked it up and had to add it to the TBR list. I love small town romances with family secrets.
 
That Summer
 
Summary:
 
2009: When Julia Conley hears that she has inherited a house outside London from an unknown great-aunt, she assumes it’s a joke. She hasn't been back to England since the car crash that killed her mother when she was six, an event she remembers only in her nightmares. But when she arrives at Herne Hill to sort through the house—with the help of her cousin Natasha and sexy antiques dealer Nicholas—bits of memory start coming back. And then she discovers a pre-Raphaelite painting, hidden behind the false back of an old wardrobe, and a window onto the house's shrouded history begins to open...1849: Imogen Grantham has spent nearly a decade trapped in a loveless marriage to a much older man, Arthur. The one bright spot in her life is her step-daughter, Evie, a high-spirited sixteen year old who is the closest thing to a child Imogen hopes to have. But everything changes when three young painters come to see Arthur's collection of medieval artifacts, including Gavin Thorne, a quiet man with the unsettling ability to read Imogen better than anyone ever has. When Arthur hires Gavin to paint her portrait, none of them can guess what the hands of fate have set in motion.From modern-day England to the early days of the Preraphaelite movement, Lauren Willig's That Summer takes readers on an un-put-downable journey through a mysterious old house, a hidden love affair, and one woman’s search for the truth about her past—and herself.

Why I'm Waiting:
 
The cover is what caught my eye for this one. I'm a sucker for a book set in the English country side and I love books that take place in two different time periods about two different characters.
 
What are you waiting on this week?

  3. Whoa! If I steal "The House on Blueberry Hill" for my next WOW...will you hate me? I love that summary and I have the release date and info down on my "to buy" list. You have awesome taste. I've never heard of either of these books, but I'm lusting after them so bad. But I guess this is WHY we book blog and WHY WOW exists.

    Hi! I'm Rebecca, I'm a new follower and I hope to see you around. Here's my WOW if you'd like to check it out.

    Have an awesome day.
