Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by Breaking the Spine.

This week, my WoW is Ripple by Mandy Hubbard


For two years, I have not killed.
But tonight, I stand in the shadows behind a tree, watching as a boy skips rocks on the lake.
He shouldn't be here.

Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn't, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love--again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.

Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgement, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldn't. But when she's offered the chance of living a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.

In Ripple, Mandy Hubbard spins a sea-ravaged tale of melancholy beauty, and the choices one girl makes between land and waves, love and freedom, her future--and her heart.

I am SOOOO looking forward to this book. I absolutely LOVE sea/land romances!
