Waiting on Wednesday; Peaches for Father Francis; Joanne Harris

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating! Want to participate? Post your own WOW entry on your blog, and leave your link at Breaking the Spine. My pick is:

Viking - October 2, 2012

I was disappointed when my request for an eGalley of this one wasn't approved. I love Joanne Harris and thought this sounded good.  What do you think about the sound of this one?

The bestselling author of Chocolat and The Girl with No Shadow returns to Lansquenet in this enchanting new novel — When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she has no choice but to follow the wind that blows her back to Lansquenet, the beautiful French village in which eight years ago she opened a chocolate shop and first learned the meaning of home.

But returning to one?s past can be a dangerous pursuit. Vianne, with her daughters, Anouk and Rosette, finds Lansquenet changed in unexpected ways: women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea?and there, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church, a minaret. Most surprising of all, her old nemesis, Father Francis Reynaud, desperately needs her help.

Can Vianne work her magic once again?

  5. I was hoping for an ARC of this one too, but no luck. LOVED Chocolat so can't wait for this one. Have you read the others about the same characters?

  6. I loved the other 2 books too so I'm hoping to read this soon. Maybe I can pick up a Dutch ARC if I'm lucky. Out in September, here, I think.

  11. I saw the description and really wanted it, until I realised that I actually haven't read the two books before it. I will get to it in due course.

  12. I have both of her Choclat' books and have yet to read them but I loved the movie and found both at a library book sale!! You weren't approved??? Are they nuts? I try not to go there anymore and look at books. I have so many to read that it depresses me at times!!!
