I can’t wait for – The Liar’s Child by Carla Buckley (Can’t-Wait Wednesday)

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we are excited about that we have yet to read.

I came across this meme recently and thought it sounded like a lot of fun. There are so many books that I can’t wait to read…

My choice for this week is:

The Liar’s Child by Carla Buckley

Expected publication: March 12th, 2019 by Ballantine Books


Goodreads Description:

In this intense and intimate family portrait that moves at a thriller’s pace, a troubled woman faces a gripping moral dilemma after rescuing two abandoned children from a hurricane.

 On the outskirts of North Carolina’s Outer Banks sits The Paradise, an apartment complex where renters never stay long enough to call the place “home”–and neighbors are seldom neighborly. It’s ideal for Sara Lennox, who moved there to escape a complicated past–and even her name–and rebuild a new life for herself under the radar. But Sara cannot help but notice the family next door, especially twelve-year-old Cassie and five-year-old Boon. She hears rumors and whispers of a recent tragedy slowly tearing them apart.

 When a raging storm threatens then slams the coastal community, Sara makes a quick, bold decision: Rescue Cassie and Boon from the storm and their broken home–without telling a soul. But this seemingly noble act is not without consequences. Some lethal.

 Carla Buckley crafts a richly rewarding psychological portrait, combining a heart-wrenching family drama with high-stakes suspense, as the lives of three characters intertwine in an unforgettable story of fury, fate–and redemption.


My Thoughts:

 I’ve enjoyed many of this author’s previous novels.  After reading the description for “The Liar’s Child”, I immediately added it to my list of upcoming books to read.

I hope it is as good as it sounds!

 I can’t wait!

  1. Definitely sounds good. North Carolina is one of my favorite settings (thanks Nicholas Sparks!) and the plot doesn’t remind me of anything I’ve read before. Hungry for books that seem like a variation on the same old theme, know what I mean?
