Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wish comes a poignant love story about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s possible to leave the past behind.
Colby Mills once felt destined for a musical career, until tragedy grounded his aspirations. Now the head of a small family farm in North Carolina, he spontaneously takes a gig playing at a bar in St. Pete Beach, Florida, seeking a rare break from his duties at home.
But when he meets Morgan Lee, his world is turned upside-down, making him wonder if the responsibilities he has shouldered need dictate his life forever. The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.
While they are falling headlong in love, Beverly is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. Fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, she is trying to piece together a life for them in a small town far off the beaten track. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true.
In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.
Why I Can’t Wait!
It’s been a while since I’ve read a book by Nicholas Sparks, but I’ve enjoyed every book of his that I’ve read.
What book or books are you anxiously waiting for? Comment below!
I also haven’t read a Nicholas Sparks in ages, but I do normally enjoy his books. This one does sound like worth the wait.
Hope you get to read it soon!
So many people love Nicholas Sparks. 😊
Yes, we do 🙂
I must admit, I have never read a Nicholas Sparks book. Don’t think I’d enjoy one, but I hope you enjoy this one.
Thank you, Mark! His books aren’t for everyone!
Hope you enjoy it. I haven’t read his books but watched a few of the movies based on his books.
I haven’t read many of his books, but the ones I have read were good.
It has been yearrrrsss since I’ve read him. I think this sounds good. I read one of his first ones after his divorce and hated it. I can’t remember what it’s called but I remember what it looks like… I think it was called See Me, maybe? I hope this is great though!! I might give it a go.
That is interesting! I hope this is a good one!
I didn’t know Nicholas Sparks had a new book coming out. I wonder if it will become a film someday?
It probably will become a film!
You remind me that I need to dip my toe into a Nicholas Sparks’ book at some point. The set up for this one sounds like it will be a good heartwarmer.
He writes such emotional books.
Great choice, Wendy. I am also waiting for this one. I love Nicholas Sparks.
He’s so good. I hope we both enjoy this one.
It’s exciting when an author you like has a new book out!
Have a great week!

This sounds lovely, hope you enjoy 😊
Thank you, Jenny!
Good review and the book sounds good too.
Thank you, Linda.
I do love a good Nicholas Sparks book and it’s been a while for me too (not really into reading about tragedy right now). I hope that you enjoy it Wendy. I look forward to reading your review.
Thank you, Jodie! I hope it’s a good one.
I didn’t even know he was still writing – that sounds like a good story though so I’m going to be adding it to my goodreads
He just keeps pumping out books!
I love his books (the ones I have read so far)! I have so much catching up to do, but eventually I’ll read them all. This sound like another good one. 🙂
Thank you! I hope it’s a good one!
It’s been a long time since I’ve read anything by Sparks, too, but this one sounds very good!
I hope so! Thanks, Tanya!
I like the cover. I hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it!!
Thank you, Cindy!
Gosh, it’s been a while since I read one of his too. I hope you love it.
Thank you! I hope it’s a good one.
I hope you enjoy this one. My daughter used to read a lot of Nicholas Sparks books.
Thank you, Kristi
Great choice Wendy. I’m so excited for this one too. I think we better have a box of tissues close by 💕💕
I think you’re right, Susan! Mine will be close by for sure!
Sounds a good one!
Thank you, Cathy!
