~Waiting On Wednesday and Cover Attraction~



Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

Cover Attraction is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. She says "I'm a very visual person and love beautiful or interesting cover art. It entices, and invites me to stop and take a peek, instead of walking right on by.

My pick for both this week is:

Ladies of the Lake by Haywood Smith
Release Date 9/1/09
From Amazon.com:

Sisters Dahlia, Iris, Violet, and Rose—all with grown children of their own—have a complicated relationship, so when their grand - mother’s will requires them to spend the whole summer—without friends or family—“camping in” at her run-down lodge on re mote Lake Clare in order to inherit the valuable land, old rivalries and new understanding emerge, with plenty of laughs along the way. Desperate to save her Buckhead home from foreclosure after being left in the lurch, recent divorcee Dahlia must complete the summer and sell her share immediately. Practical, even-tempered Violet will be no problem, but Iris has been Dahlia’s nemesis since she learned to say, “no” to her big sister. And super-sweet, quirky Garage Sale Queen Rose is so “green” she’d test the patience of a saint. As tempers flare and old secrets are revealed, four grown women discover that the past is never truly buried.

What are YOUR picks this week?

I love the cover! It would make me buy this book right away. The synopsis sounds good too, I like reading about strained and not so perfect family relations.

P.S.
Thank you Missy for leaving very kind and supportive words on my post. I am very relieved to know that there is a person out there who understands exactly how it feels because she goes through this too. Thank you.
