Waiting on Wednesday: One Moment

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Goodreads:

This was supposed to be the best summer of Maggie’s life. Now it’s the one she’d do anything to forget.

Maggie Reynolds remembers hanging out at the gorge with her closest friends after a blowout party the night before. She remembers climbing the trail hand in hand with her perfect boyfriend, Joey. She remembers that last kiss, soft, lingering, and meant to reassure her. So why can’t she remember what happened in the moment before they were supposed to dive? Why was she left cowering at the top of the cliff, while Joey floated in the water below – dead?

As Maggie’s memories return in snatches, nothing seems to make sense. Why was Joey acting so strangely at the party? Where did he go after taking her home? And if Joey was keeping these secrets, what else was he hiding?

The latest novel from the author of The Tension of Opposites, One Moment is a mysterious, searing look at how an instant can change everything you believe about the world around you.


One Moment by Kristina McBride will be released by EgmontUSA on June 26, 2012.

This sophomore novel follows McBride’s The Tension of Opposites, which I loved. I’m looking forward to seeing how her newest work compares. The synopsis is somewhat reminiscent of Twenty Boy Summer, a book that absolutely crushed me, but One Moment appears to have a be packed with even more suspense.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • Oh this one sounds good! I like contemporary pieces that have a bit of mystery thrown in. Keeps you guessing how things will turn out if it’s done well.
