Book News: The Waiting Game by Jessica Thompson

One book I am really excited about reading this year is the new book from author Jessica Thompson. The Waiting Game has possibly my favourite cover of 2015 so far, and the story sounds absolutely stunning too - I've read and loved everything Jessica has written to date so I know this one won't disappoint, and I can't wait to read it. It's out on 13th August 2015.

Available to pre-order now.

"‘The moon was speckled like a bird’s egg. It hung reliably in the blackness above Will Turnbull and Nessa Grier who sat side by side on a bench as the leaves fell around them, landing softly on the thick, wet grass. Their knees were just touching, hearts pounding hard.’

Nessa Bruce waits for her husband to come through the double doors. She’d waited for him to return home from Afghanistan for what felt like forever, and now the moment was finally here. But Jake isn’t… Jake Bruce hasn’t come home, and it looks like he never will.

Nessa’s life – and that of her daughter Poppy – is turned upside down in an instant. What has happened to the elusive man at the centre of their world? They hold onto the hope that he is still out there somewhere, alive… but as time passes by, Nessa is forced to look at her life, at the decisions she has made and the secrets she has kept. For maybe somewhere within it all lies the answer to the question she’s desperate to answer – where is the man she loves?"
