Wishing for Wednesday: Lake Silence & Darkest Night



Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Tressa at 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. (Based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.)

As if I need to add more books to my existing TBR pile, but these are two coming out that I don't think I will be able to resist.


Darkest Night by Tara Thomas (352 pgs)
Release Date: February 27, 2018 by St. Martin's Press
In this first novel in the explosive, brand-new romantic suspense Sons of Broad series from Tara Thomas comes a novel of deadly secrets and hidden danger. In the sultry streets of Charleston, one family, ruled by its powerful, take-no-prisoners sons, has risen to the top. But a merciless killer is out to destroy them…and everyone they hold close… 
SHE THOUGHT SHE’D LOST HIM FOREVERTilly Brock has learned—the hard way—how to take care of herself. Once a pillar of Charleston society, her family lost everything in the wake of a shocking scandal. And then Tilly lost the only boy she ever loved.

BUT NOW THAT HE’S BACK IN HER LIFEKeaton Benedict is Charleston’s most notorious bachelor. But in spite of all his advantages—the money, the women,the family name—he longs for more: the heart of the young woman he still can’t forget.

THE DANGER HAS JUST BEGUN…When Keaton re-enters Tilly’s life, after all these years, she is torn between feelings of doubt and desire. Can they put the past behind them and learn to love again? Tilly is willing to try. But Keaton is afraid that a vengeful enemy is watching—and waiting to destroy them. Can the rekindled flame of their love defeat the deadliest rival and light their way forward in the darkest night? [Goodreads Summary]

Why I want to read it: I admit it was the Charleston setting that initially caught my attention first. I enjoy second chance romance from time to time and throw in a mystery/thriller type angle, and I am even more interested.

Lake Silence by Anne Bishop (416 pgs)
Release Date: March 6, 2018 by Ace

In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy, set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, Vicki DeVine and her lodger, the shapeshifter Aggie Crowe, stumble onto a dead body . . . and find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets.

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shapeshifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget . . .

After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki’s have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what’s out there watching you.

Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe–one of the shapeshifting Others–discovers a dead body, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the man’s death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, things get dangerous–and it’ll take everything they have to stay alive. [Goodreads Summary]

Why I want to read this: Lake Silence is probably at the top of my most anticipated books coming out this year. The Others series is a favorite of mine, and I am eager to read this one.

Do either of these sound like something you would like to read too?

  1. I am a HUGE fan of Anne Bishop and will be tearing through Lake Silence as soon as it arrives on my doorstep (I always preorder her new books so I get them the day they are released!).

  6. I think both of them sound good. The Charleston setting of the first is great - I've read some fun books set there, but it's been a while. And though I've never read anything by Anne Bishop, I know you lover her books. Read on, Wendy!

  7. I like the sound of Lake Silence, though it does seem very creepy... While I enjoy second chance romances, Darkest Night didn't appeal so much. I hope you enjoy both these reads, Wendy:)

  8. I have a review scheduled for Lake Silence. I liked it because it continues "The Others" series, although in a new setting with some new characters! I may miss some of the earlier characters, but I'm delighted to keep in touch with Bishop's world of the Others. :)

    1. Jenclair - I am eager to read it. I still have the fifth book to read, I know it wasn't a strong finale from all I've heard, but hopefully I will enjoy it just the same. I just love the world Bishop has created in the series.

    1. Maria - Thank you! Mouse and my husband and I had a nice Valentine's Day. It's a family affair for us, since Mouse is more interested in the holiday than either my husband or I.

      I really love the Others series and am anxious to see where Bishop takes her readers next.

    1. Aimee - Lake Silence is listed as the 6th book in the series, but it really is more of a spin-off from what I have heard. Different part of the same world and different characters. I am anxious to read it!
