is a weekly event that was 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. There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

About four years ago I read Christina Stein´s thriller Wonderland and found it so-so. I have no clue why I placed a request for this new book that has gotten rescheduled when Corona hit. Like so many other books, too. I can´t even say that the cover caught my eyes or something like that. No. In fact, I read the summary after I had received the publishers’ email and thought, okay, why not give this author a second chance and see how things go from there? Could be a thriller I like. And if not, well …

Searching Lucy
Author Christina Stein
Publishing Date March 24, 2021
Publisher Fischer Sauerländer
Format Paperback

It´s been weeks since Amber´s twin sister Lucy disappeared. Just because. On a full moon night. On Halloween. Exactly a month after Amber´s father. No suspects, no ransom note, not a single lead. Amber knows the chances that they are still alive decrease every day. Anyone around you could be the culprit. And she will find him – even if she has to go into every single basement to look for them. 

And what are you waiting for? Let me know your thoughts about this one or leave me the link to your WoW and I check it out.
