“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
Phew, I’m powering through this week! I’m so glad today marks the halfway point through the week, even though I’m not even close to being halfway through putting away laundry. :p

A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRís calls to her body and soul.
She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future.

Why I’m Stoked: I really love books set in other countries- especially Ireland. It already seems like a pretty magical place! This books appears to blend mystery, magic and love really well. And now, its on my my ever-growing TBR!
