Can’t Wait Wednesday : Untamed Shore by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Untamed Shore by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – because OMG!  Give. Me. The. Book.  RRRrrrrrr.  I need this book *faints*

UntamedShore.jpgRenowned author Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s first thriller, UNTAMED SHORE, is a coming-of-age story set in Mexico which quickly turns dark when a young woman meets three enigmatic tourists.

Baja California, 1979. Viridiana spends her days watching the dead sharks piled beside the seashore, as the fishermen pull their nets. There is nothing else to do, nothing else to watch, under the harsh sun. She’s bored. Terribly bored. Yet her head is filled with dreams of Hollywood films, of romance, of a future beyond the drab town where her only option is to marry and have children.

Three wealthy American tourists arrive for the summer, and Viridiana is magnetized. She immediately becomes entwined in the glamorous foreigners’ lives. They offer excitement, and perhaps an escape from the promise of a humdrum future.

When one of them dies, Viridiana lies to protect her friends. Soon enough, someone’s asking questions, and Viridiana has some of her own about the identity of her new acquaintances. Sharks may be dangerous, but there are worse predators nearby, ready to devour a naïve young woman who is quickly being tangled in a web of deceit.

Silvia Moreno-Garcia is one of the most exciting voices in fiction, and with her first crime novel, UNTAMED SHORE, she crafts a blazing novel of suspense with an eerie seaside setting and a literary edge that proves her a master of the genre.

Expected publication : February 2020

    I’m pretty excited about this one too! The author’s proven to be very versatile, so I’m curious to see how she’ll tackle crime fiction.

      I know and it’s so strange that she’s almost following in our change in book trends because we all seem to be enjoying crime and thrillers such a lot at the moment.

    Yesss!! Can’t wait. And it sounds completely different from everything else she’s written😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think that’s the only thing you can really anticipate with this author – well, great books obvs – but always so very different.

    This one sounds different – but then, to be fair – she’s ALWAYS different!

    I am very curious about this one but when it comes to this author, I need to quit expecting another Certain Dark Things.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve liked all her books but Certain Dark Things was exceptional.

      Yes – I suggest Certain Dark Things – that will fill out one of your vampire bingo stamps.
