Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
The calendar may say Wednesday but after being gone the past week, it feels like a Monday to me! But the good news is that I have a short week and then it will be the weekend with extra hours to read.
In May, the second book in Rachel McMillan’s Van Buren and DeLuca series comes out and I am so looking forward to this one. Boston, amateur detectives, a hero who suffers from anxiety, and (I hear) quite a kiss is included. I have enjoyed every one of McMillan’s books that I’ve read so I have no doubt this one will rank right up there with the others.
About the Book
Determined to make a life for herself, Regina “Reggie” Van Buren bid goodbye to fine china and the man her parents expected her to marry and escaped to Boston. What she never expected to discover was that an unknown talent for sleuthing would develop into a business partnership with the handsome, yet shy, Hamish DeLuca.
Their latest case arrives when Errol Parker, the leading base stealer in the Boston farm leagues, hires Hamish and Reggie to investigate what the Boston police shove off as a series of harmless pranks. Errol believes these are hate crimes linked to the outbreak of war in Europe, and he’s afraid for his life. Hamish and Reggie quickly find themselves in the midst of an escalating series of crimes that seem to link Boston to Hamish’s hometown of Toronto.
When an act of violence hits too close to home, Hamish is driven to a decision that may sever him from Reggie forever . . . even more than her engagement to wealthy architect Vaughan Vanderlaan.
Don’t you just love that cover? I have to say, the photo does not do it justice!
