Waiting on Wednesday #23


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

My pick this week is:

Title: Lies Beneath
Series:  Lies Beneath, Book1
Author: Anne Greenwood Brown
Release date: June 12th, 2012

Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans, killing them to absorb their energy. But this summer the underwater clan targets Jason Hancock out of pure revenge. They blame Hancock for their mother's death and have been waiting a long time for him to return to his family's homestead on the lake. Hancock has a fear of water, so to lure him in, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter, Lily. Easy enough—especially as Calder has lots of practice using his irresistibly good looks and charm on unsuspecting girls. Only this time Calder screws everything up: he falls for Lily—just as Lily starts to suspect that there's more to the monsters-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined. And just as his sisters are losing patience with him.

Why I want to read it:
I know that many of you have already read it, but I haven't gotten around to that yet, thus this post. I got it from Netgalley, so basically I just need to sit down and read it. Besides, the story sounds good even though I'm not in the sea monster lover club.

So how about you? What are you waiting on this week?
