Waiting On Wednesday #49 – Friction by Sandra Brown

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
is a weekly event originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

For whatever reason Jill is not blogging since August 2016 but her meme is still going on. Hope everything is ok and she will be back soon! Until then, I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday!

Since many years I am a huge Sandra Brown fan. From some of her books, I own the original US edition as well as the German edition.

This here I heard so many great things about that I actually can barely wait to get my hands on.

Friction or as the German title will be Tödliche Sehnsucht by Sandra Brown will be published on January 9, 2018, by Blanvalet as a hardcover.


Crawford Hunt wants his daughter back. Following the death of his wife four years ago, Crawford, a Texas Ranger, fell into a downward spiral that left him relegated to deskwork and with his five-year-old daughter Georgia in the custody of her grandparents. But Crawford has cleaned up his act, met all the court imposed requirements, and now the fate of his family lies with Judge Holly Spencer.
Holly, ambitious and confident, temporarily occupies the bench of her recently deceased mentor. With an election upcoming, she must prove herself worthy of making judgeship permanent. Every decision is high-stakes. Despite Crawford´s obvious love for his child and his commitment to being an ideal parent, Holly is wary of his checkered past. Her opinion of him is radically changed when a masked gunman barges into the courtroom during the custody hearing. Crawford reacts instinctually, saving Holly from a bullet. But his heroism soon takes on the taint of recklessness. The could over him grows even darker after he uncovers a horrifying truth about the courtroom gunman and realizes that the unknown person behind the shooting remains at large … and a threat. Catching the real culprit becomes a personal fight for Crawford. But pursuing the killer in his customary diehard fashion will jeopardize his chances of gaining custody of his daughter, and further compromise Judge Holly Spencer, who needs protection not only from an assassin but from Crawford himself and the forbidden attraction between them.

Happy reading & waiting on

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.


  1. Thrillers scare me for the simple fact that the last few I read were pretty hyped and I didn't enjoy them that much. However, they always sound great and this one is no exception.

    1. Yes, some thrillers are totally hyped and can´t stand up to it at all. But for me, Sandra Brown is always a great read *smile* Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I haven't read any Sandra Brown books yet, but this sounds interesting! Great picks!

    Here’s my WoW!
