New Release! The Wait by Joanne DeMaio ~ My Thoughts #TheWait

The Wait

The Wait by Joanne DeMaio
Women's Saga, 273 pages
Published May 9, 2022 by Joanne DeMaio

From New York Times bestselling author Joanne DeMaio comes The Wait, Book 15 of The Seaside Saga.

In the New England beach town of Stony Point, everyone is waiting for something. Or someone. They're waiting for an answer. Waiting for something to believe in. Waiting for the right time. Waiting for a friend. Some are waiting to come home. Others are waiting to make a move. Then there's that shabby coastal table at twilight awaiting a secret dinner guest.

My thoughts about The Wait ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"'Celia,' Shane says. She's sitting beside him on his pickup truck's open tailgate."

The Wait is another satisfying episode in the wonderful Seaside Saga series. I love this series so much and love all the characters who I now feel are my friends. I always enjoy catching up with all of them. Let me tell you, we have been through some serious ups and downs together. 

I look forward to each installment as I watch some relationships move forward, all while some appear to be stalled. That's real life though, right? And the ending of each book leaves me with enough thoughts and questions that I'm excited for the next book. 

I highly recommend the Seaside Saga series and The Wait was definitely worth the wait. 

I received a copy of The Wait from the author and this is my honest opinion.
