Waiting on Wednesday (5)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

 I've only read the one book by Rachel Ward (the first Numbers book) and it destroyed me.  I read it just after a close family member died and it made me confront the grief that I was feeling but that I was trying to deny.  In short, the book destroyed me.  I haven't yet read the rest of the books in the series, but I have them on my shelves waiting for the perfect time to dip back into them.

And Rachel Ward's latest, The Drowning, sounds incredible.  I'm really looking forward to reading it.  It is being published by Chicken House on the 2nd of May.

The Drowning by Rachel Ward

What happens if you've done something terrible? But you can't remember what. And you don't know how to put it right ...

When Carl opens his eyes on the banks of a lake, his brother is being zipped into a body bag. What happened in the water? He can't remember And when he glimpses a beautiful girl he thinks he recognises, she runs away.Suddenly he knows he must find her - because together they must face the truth before it drowns them.

  1. That must be terrifying, waking up to see your sibling zipped into a bodybag! But the cover looks gorgeous! I hope you felt better after having confronted your grief!

    1. Thanks Juli, I did :)

      And yes! What a terrifying premise for a story. I can't wait to see what happens.

  2. I've seen the cover to this, but didn't link it with Rachel Ward of Numbers! I loved that trilogy. Will definately be checking this out, thank you :)

    1. I'm not sure the two came together in my mind immediately either! :)

  3. I heard a small extract of this at an event Rachel did with Chicken House and so I'm really looking forward to reading it because it sounds amazing. I loved Numbers and this one sounds even better. Great choice! :)

  4. Sounds like a thrilling read.

  5. I have this book on my TBR pile! It is one of my next reads, actually. It looks amazing and I love Chicken House which is a bonus. I have yet to read the Numbers trilogy but they look fantastic. I hope you manage to read and enjoy it soon :)

  6. I can't wait for this either! I've never read a Rachel Ward book, I have Numbers though in my TBR pile - hopefully I'll read them both soon! :)

  7. Great pick! I've never heard of this one before. That cover is very cool.
