Waiting on Wednesday - Little Black Dress by Susan McBride

"Waiting On Wednesday"(WOW) is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases eagerly anticipated. This is my third week joining the 100 plus book bloggers who participate in the weekly meme and I am very excited to be a part of it. I hope to hear from you and your own WOW so that I can add some more books to my TBR shelf.

          Are you ready for the next LBD??? What girl isn’t familiar with the phrase “little black dress” or maybe she’s wearing one right this second? That’s why Susan McBride’s second novel makes such a great release with its title of the same name. A great title with an equally stunning cover, Little Black Dress is sure to have a spot on all the shelves of chick lit ready for its August release. I don’t know about you but I can hardly handle the anticipation. Maybe I’ll treat myself to shop for a new LBD while I wait….

Little Black Dress by Susan McBride

Since leaving her hometown of Blue Hills, Antonia Ashton has worked hard for twenty-five years, building a thriving career and a solid relationship with a good guy. Then Greg-the-Accountant gives her the key to his apartment instead of a ring, and the forty-something Toni realizes her life has gone off-track. But she's completely derailed when her mother, Evie, suffers a massive stroke. While their relationship has never been warm and fuzzy, Toni always thought she'd have time to make it right. Now she's running back to Blue Hills to her mother and to the past she'd left behind.

Once home, Toni finds more than an ailing Evie to tend to. The old Victorian on the vineyard where she'd grown up isn't only filled with clutter; it's chockfull of secrets and lies. As Evie heals, Toni tries to put her mother's house in order and, in the process, uncovers truths long-hidden involving Evie and her sister Anna, who'd vanished fifty years ago on the eve of her wedding. Unveiling the sisters' tangled lives not only sheds light on the past, but on Toni's own mistakes. And she learns the most unexpected things, about love and magic and a little black dress with the power to break hearts and mend them.

Susan McBride is also the author of The Cougar Club. Visit her web site for more info at

  1. Oh, this sounds very interesting.
    I've read this author's YA books and really liked them so I'm going to add this to my list.

    Thanks for sharing
