Waiting on Wednesday #100

 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released.
 
Visions (Cainsville, #2)
 
Summary:
 
As #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong’s new Cainsville series continues, Olivia’s power to read omens leads to the discovery of a gruesome crime with troubling connections to her new hometown.

Omens, the first installment in Kelley Armstrong’s exciting new series, introduced Olivia Taylor-Jones, daughter of notorious serial killers, and Gabriel Walsh, the self-serving, morally ambiguous lawyer who became her unlikely ally. Together, they chased down a devious killer and partially cleared her parents of their horrifying crimes.

Their success, however, is short-lived. While Olivia takes refuge in the old, secluded town of Cainsville, Gabriel’s past mistakes have come to light, creating a rift between the pair just when she needs his help the most.

Olivia finds a dead woman in her car, dressed to look like her, but the body vanishes before anyone else sees it. Olivia’s convinced it’s another omen, a sign of impending danger. But then she learns that a troubled young woman went missing just days ago—the same woman Olivia found dead in her car. Someone has gone to great lengths to kill and leave this young woman as a warning. But why? And what role has her new home played in this disturbing murder?

Olivia’s effort to uncover the truth places her in the crosshairs of old and powerful forces, forces that have their own agenda, and closely guarded secrets they don’t want revealed.

Why I'm Waiting:
 
I've been a big fan of Kelley Armstrong for over ten years and I loved the first book in the Cainsville series when I read it a few months ago and I like the mystery she created involving Olivia's past and I can't wait to read this one.
 
Scandalous Summer Nights (Honeycote, #3)
 
Summary:
 
HOW FAR WILL TEMPTATION TAKE HIM . . .
Lady Olivia Sherbourne isn't shy about speaking her mind, except when it comes to James Averill. For ten long years he has been her brother's best friend and her heart's only desire. But when Olivia hears James will soon set sail for an expedition to Egypt, she knows the time has come to make her move. It's now or never . . .

James has always found Olivia bewitchingly attractive, but what kind of gentleman takes up with his best friend's sister? Not that he's thinking particularly gentlemanly thoughts when she appears on his exploratory trip—three hundred miles from home!—and incites a tavern fight. No matter what the devil she's doing there, it's his duty to see her safely back to her family. But how safe will she be when every starlit night brings wicked temptation . . . ?

Why I'm Waiting:
 
This is the third book in Anne Barton's Honeycote series and I loved the novella that I read in the series a few month back so while I have to catch up on the rest of the series before this one comes out I'm still looking forward to it a lot.

  1. Both of these certainly look exciting! I've heard of Kelley Armstrong, of course, but not the Cainesville series. So I'm going to investigate further!

    As for Anne Barton, both the author and series are entirely new to me. so I really appreciate your featuring them! I always enjoy checking out new (to me) authors. Besides, that cover hints at sizzling romance!

    I love your picks!! Thanks for featuring them!! : )
