Waiting on Wednesday: Winter Longing by Tricia Mills

This week's pre-publication, can't-wait-to-read pick is:

Winter Longing

by Tricia Mills (August 2010 Razorbill)

A plane crash in Alaska takes
Winter’s first love away forever . . .

When Winter’s boyfriend is killed in a plane crash in
the Alaskan wilderness, she’s robbed of the future
she’d only just allowed herself to believe might be
hers. Winter and Spencer had been destined for one
another. And after his death, Spencer’s presence
continues to haunt her.

But when her next-door neighbor becomes an
unlikely friend, Winter begins to accept all that
she can’t change. Can she open herself to a new
future . . . and a possible new love?

(I love the cover of this book and romantic premise! I first discovered it on The Story Siren's "Books to Pine For" Post. Thanks Kristi!)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
