Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Gosh it’s been ages since I’ve participated in a Waiting on Wednesday – I miss posting about the books I’m excited about. My pick this week is for a book I’m over the top excited about by a fantastic author who I not only respect but consider a friend as do many bloggers. It’s called Looking For Me by Beth Hoffman and it releases on May 28/13. Beth is the best-selling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt which was a book I loved as so many of us did (my review) and she returns with another southern novel that is sure to captivate audiences once again. I love this cover – it’s beautiful!
Here’s a bit about it from Beth’s website…
“My little brother was so wonderstruck by the world around him that never once did I hear him cry. He’d sit in that old buggy with his eyes wide and his ears pricked sharp as a deer’s. It seemed to me that nature spoke to him more plainly than any human voice … as if the wind moving through the trees and the subtle change in a blackbird’s song told him the truth of things.”
Each time Teddi Overman leaves her antiques shop in Charleston, South Carolina and visits the Kentucky farm of her youth, she’s drawn to the mysterious beauty of Red River Gorge where her brother Josh went missing. Though his absence remains unimaginable, Teddi builds a life as unexpected and quirky as the customers who frequent her shop. As she comes to terms with the events that shattered her family and finds love in the most surprising way, Teddi must decide what to let go of and what to keep.
In Looking for Me, bestselling author Beth Hoffman brings forth an evocative, multilayered story that moves between the charms of Charleston and Kentucky’s woodlands while exposing the fragile wounds and strengths of a woman who comes to understand the words once written in a simple note and the remarkable boy who penned them.

In the meantime if you haven’t read Saving CeeCee Honeycutt you really should because it is a beautiful book that you won’t soon forget. How about the rest of you? What are you anxiously waiting for?
