"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I or us, readers are eagerly anticipating. Here's my pick this week ...
Title: YOU WERE MINE (Rosemary Beach #9)
Publisher: Atria Books
Publication Date: December 2, 2014
From #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a brand-new Rosemary Beach novel about Tripp Newark and his hidden romantic past with Bethy Lowry.
In the eyes of the wealthy playboys who frequent Kerrington Country Club in Rosemary Beach, Tripp Newark is a hero. Under pressure from his parents to become a lawyer and lead a conservative, upper-class life, Tripp disappeared from town five years ago to travel the world, forfeiting the opportunity to inherit millions. Yet few know what he was really running from...
Bethy Lowry was unraveling long before her boyfriend drowned in a riptide trying to save her after she'd had one too many drinks--again. A trailer park kid working as a cart girl among the wealthy patrons of Kerrington Country Club, Bethy has always been impressionable. But five years ago, before she earned her reputation as a hard-drinking, easy girl, she had spent a single summer with Tripp Newark that changed her life forever...
Aha! Way before it was announced that there's going to be a story focusing on the characters of Tripp and Bethy, I can already feel it in my heart and have been really begging for Abbi Glines to write one. Hmmm. Here's what I actually said in one of my reviews for Glines' book [Simple Perfection] last year:
"2. What happened to Jace will open another great storyline! WHAT THE FREAK! I NEED A TRIPP AND BETHY STORY! SJDASNS THERE'S SO MUCH TO EXPLORE WITH THEIR CHARACTERS! THEIR PAST SNDSDS! ABBI, PLEASE!!!"
I KNEW IT! I TOTALLY KNEW IT!!!
AND NOW HERE WE ARE! We're just waiting for the release of this baby! Oh the things that I do just to win an ARC of this book. But still no luck. Phew.
Anyways, I'm really excited to read their story already because the characters are just so interesting! Tripp and Bethy are actually connected with each other because of a past that pretty much the entire "Rosemary Beach" crew doesn't know of. Not such a good past at that. I don't know how these guys will react when they unravel this link between these two. Sounds fun ... uh nope. Then, add up the whole Jace situation that they've got going on. Oh boy, I know that this one will be one helluva emotional read. *prepares lots of tissues for this baby*
