Waiting on Wednesday – Week 72

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight on upcoming books which I'm DYING to get my hands on :)

This week's WoW is:
The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook

From the author of Unraveling Isobel and The Education of Hailey Kendrick, a smart, romantic novel about a teenage con artist who might be in over her head. Sadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.

But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or she’ll be stuck in this town forever.

With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn't prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose....

I can't wait for this one! I've heard a TON of amazing things about Cook's books...which I unfortunately have not read :( But anyway, this one sounds so good!!! Kind of reminds me of Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott. Heard some good things about this one (or rather the sneak peek into this one), and it should be an interesting read.

What are you waiting on?


  1. I've heard great things about this authors books, but I haven't read anything by her either. Thanks for sharing this one, I'm definitely adding it to my TBR.

    My WoW

  2. I love the sound of this one-a cute flirty contemp with some darker undertones! I also enjoyed Scott's book and hopefully this will have its own unique stuff to set it apart.

  3. This one looks fabulous! Great pick! I can't wait to read.
    Stop by MY WOW?
