Happy Wednesday everyone! It is time for a little Can't Wait Wednesday! This is where myself and my Traveling Sisters share with you an upcoming read we are really excited about. This is a meme hosted by Wishful Ending. Usually we have Christina from Recipe and a Read with us, but she will be taking a little time off. We are thinking of you Christina!  Please pop over and see what Brenda & Norma at Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee have to say about what they are looking forward to! As for me I can't wait for us to read this week........

The Au Pair by Emma Rous! This has been on my TBR list for quite some time and I am really excited to say we are finally reading it as a group. It is next up on my list. My reaction when the Traveling Sisters said it was going to be a read this month...see below.........

 Okay sisters, buckle up!!! I am ready for this one! Has anyone read this one yet? What are your thoughts? Publication date is right around the corner! January 8, 2019 will be here before you know it!

Goodreads Summary


 A grand estate, terrible secrets, and a young woman who bears witness to it all. If V. C. Andrews and Kate Morton had a literary love child, Emma Rous’ The Au Pair would be it.

Seraphine Mayes and her twin brother Danny were born in the middle of summer at their family’s estate on the Norfolk coast. Within hours of their birth, their mother threw herself from the cliffs, the au pair fled, and the village thrilled with whispers of dark cloaks, changelings, and the aloof couple who drew a young nanny into their inner circle.

Now an adult, Seraphine mourns the recent death of her father. While going through his belongings, she uncovers a family photograph that raises dangerous questions. It was taken on the day the twins were born, and in the photo, their mother, surrounded by her husband and her young son, is beautifully dressed, smiling serenely, and holding just one baby.

Who is the child and what really happened that day?

One person knows the truth, if only Seraphine can find her.
