"Waiting On" Wednesday: Seating Arrangements

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Seating Arrangements
By Maggie Shipstead
Publication Date: June 12

From Amazon:

Winn Van Meter has a Harvard education, membership in all the right clubs, a pedigreed wife, and a tastefully understated summer home on a pristine New England island where the wedding of his eldest daughter, Daphne, is about to take place. The weather is idyllic and so, it would seem, is the gathering. But, the bride is seven months pregnant; the maid of honor, Daphne's younger sister, has just had her heart broken by the son of her father's oldest rival; Aunt Celeste, herself on her fifth marriage, watches with a jaundiced eye as the groom's exceedingly well-dressed brothers stealthily make their way through the bridal party. And the irresistible siren call of Daphne's best friend, the bombshell bridesmaid Agatha, will drive the bride's father finally to combust, taking the family down with him in a raucous explosion of misplaced attention and thwarted desire, not to mention  confetti and wedding cake.


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

New England -- I just love that setting! I've always wanted to go around that area, but I guess it's alright to settle on reading about it now. ;) LOL this book sounds so complicated, and topping it off with confetti and cake only makes it that much better!

Love your WOW pick for this week, Jill! Thank you so much again for hosting this, and I hope you have a belated Valentine's Day! :) <3
