waiting on wednesday



The sparks are flying around here today.  Not only is it time for Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.  But the book for which I’m eagerly waiting is:  drum roll, please!  Waiting for Wednesday, by Nicci French.  It’s Book # 3 in the Frieda Klein series, and the book will be released on April 3, 2014.



I found the image on Goodreads.

Amazon Blurb:  The thrilling third novel starring London psychotherapist-turned-detective Frieda Klein—from internationally bestselling author Nicci French

Nicci French’s Blue Monday and Tuesday’s Gone introduced the brilliant yet reclusive psychotherapist Frieda Klein to widespread critical acclaim, but Waiting for Wednesday promises to be her most haunting case yet.

Ruth Lennox, housewife and mother of three, is found dead in a pool of her own blood. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson can’t piece together a motive and calls in Frieda, hoping her talents will offer a new angle on the case.

When it emerges that the mother was hiding a scandalous secret, her family closes ranks. Frieda herself is distracted, still reeling from an attempt on her life, and struggling with her own rare feelings of vulnerability. Then a patient’s chance remark sends Frieda down a dangerous path that seems to lead to a serial killer who’s long escaped detection. Is Frieda getting closer to unraveling either case? Or is she just the victim of her own paranoid, fragile mind? Because, as Frieda knows, every step closer to a killer is one more step into a darkness from which there may be no return . . .

Flawlessly executed, Waiting for Wednesday is a penetrating, twisted novel of murder and neurosis with a jaw-dropping climax that will linger in readers’ minds long after they have turned the last page.



I am so excited to finally discover it on Amazon.  It is available in the UK, and I would have ordered there eventually if it didn’t come here.

What are you eagerly anticipating today?


  1. Ooh…thanks for finding a new series that sounds like one I’d enjoy. I’ll be on the lookout for it. On a similar note, I just snagged a copy of Thursdays in the Park by Hillary Boyd from Dublin…it won’t be available in the U.S. until November.


    1. That’s a great description of this series! Thanks for the compliment on the background…I consider it serendipitous that I discovered this at Pinterest just when I was trying to think of something “sparkly” for this blog. Glad you could stop by, Annie….and thanks for following here.


  2. It took me a moment to realize the book title was Waiting For Wednesday, lol. Sounds like a good thriller type read. Love the new background!!

    Thanks for stopping by My WoW and sharing yours!


    1. I know…I thought: what are the odds of that? Thanks for stopping by, Kristin, and I hope you do check out this series. And I’m glad you love the new background…I feel quite energized and sparkly when I come here…lol


    1. Yes, it’s kind of a Days of the Week theme: Blue Monday, Tuesday’s Gone, and now, Waiting for Wednesday.

      I picture a book for every day of the week.

      Thanks for stopping by, Lindy, and enjoy your read.


    1. Yes, you should probably start with the first one. This will be No. 3. Blue Monday, Tuesday’s Gone, and Waiting for Wednesday. Thanks for visiting, Rita, and enjoy your reading.


    1. Yes, I saw something about the “first” book on someone’s blog, so when I looked it up, I saw that it’s a really short one: 39 pages. And .99.

      Thanks for visiting, Sophie.
