Can’t Wait Wednesday : Mastermind: The Rising Tide by Sam Lloyd

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 : The Rising Tide by Sam Lloyd.  I loved The Memory Wood and can’t recommend it enough so I was absolutely the most excited person ever when I saw this one:

TheRisingTideThe new pulse-pounding thriller from the bestselling author of THE MEMORY WOOD: beautifully written, evocative and dramatic, you will read it with your heart in your mouth.



The news doesn’t strike cleanly, like a guillotine’s blade. Nothing so merciful. This news is a slovenly traveller, dragging its feet, gradually revealing its horrors. And it announces itself first with violence – the urgent hammering of fists on the front door.

Life can change in a heartbeat.

Lucy has everything she could wish for: a beautiful home high on the clifftops above the Devon coast, a devoted husband and two beloved children.

Then one morning, time stops. Their family yacht is recovered, abandoned far out at sea. Lucy’s husband is nowhere to be found and as the seconds tick by, she begins to wonder – what if he was the one who took the boat? And if so, where is he now?

As a once-in-a-generation storm frustrates the rescue operation, Lucy pieces together what happened onboard. And then she makes a fresh discovery. One that plunges her into a nightmare more shocking than any she could ever have imagined . . .

Expected Publication August 2021

No Wondrous Reads ‘word’ this week – mainly because I forgot to highlight any words this week.  Doh.

      The Memory Wood was also intense so I guess you could say my expectations are high for this one.
