Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week is Cross Currents by John Shors to be released on September 6/11. I have been a fan of John’s writing for quite a while now. He has such an exquisite way of writing that just picks you up and takes you right into the worlds of his novels. His newest novel sounds really good; just take a look at the description of it from Fantastic Fiction…
Thailand’s pristine Ko Phi Phi island attracts tourists from around the world. There, struggling to make ends meet, small-resort owners Lek and Sarai are happy to give an American named Patch room and board in exchange for his help. But when Patch’s brother, Ryan, arrives, accompanied by his girlfriend, Brooke, Lek learns that Patch is running from the law, and his presence puts Lek’s family at risk. Meanwhile, Brooke begins to doubt her love for Ryan while her feelings for Patch blossom.
In a landscape where nature’s bounty seems endless, these two families are swept up in an approaching cataclysm that will require all their strength of heart and soul to survive…
I think it sounds fantastic, don’t you? I’ll be reviewing this one for sure in the next few months so keep an eye out. How about you? Are you anxiously waiting for anything new and exciting? Leave me a comment or a link to your post. Have a great day everyone!

Great cover, and the setting will certainly make it an interesting story. I'll watch for your review of this one and check my library for it.
I am sure that John Shors is an author I will love, although I STILL haven't read him yet.
