Waiting on Wednesday 09/04/19

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

The Other People by C.J. Tudor (January 28, 2020 by Ballantine Books)

I’ve become quite a fan of C.J. Tudor after The Chalk Man and The Hiding Place, so I was excited to hear she will be coming out with a third novel in early 2020.

“Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl’s face appear in the rear window. She mouths one word: ‘Daddy.’ It’s his five-year-old daughter, Izzy.

He never sees her again.

Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights travelling up and down the motorway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe that Izzy is dead.

Fran and her daughter, Alice, also put in a lot of miles on the motorway. Not searching. But running. Trying to keep one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them. Because Fran knows the truth. She knows what really happened to Gabe’s daughter.

Then, the car that Gabe saw driving away that night is found, in a lake, with a body inside and Gabe is forced to confront events, not just from the night his daughter disappeared, but from far deeper in his past.

His search leads him to a group called The Other People.

If you have lost a loved one, The Other People want to help. Because they know what loss is like. They know what pain is like. They know what death is like.

There’s just one problem . . . they want other people to know it too.”

  1. Even though I KNOW this author doesn’t work for me, I’m still tempted. I do love that cover. Her other two books fell short for me so I don’t see me picking this one up. However, I’m in the EXTREME minority with this opinion so I’m confident that you, and probably almost everyone else, will enjoy it 🙂

  2. OMG Mogsy this blurb is gripping and terrifying! As a mom I can’t imagine what that dad was going through!
