‘Waiting On’ Wednesday: ‘Half Moon Bay’ by Helene Young

Hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

‘Waiting On’ Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where by bloggers and readers post their most anticpated new releases. This week, I have chosen one of my all time favourite Australian authors Helene Young and her next release: Half Moon Bay.

Half Moon Bay by Helene Young

Expected released date: May 22nd

Published by Penguin Australia

Goodreads Synopsis

Ellie Wilding has been running from her past, but when the residents of Half Moon Bay call for help she knows it’s finally time to return home. As an international photojournalist, she’s used to violence in war zones, but she’s shocked when it erupts in the sleepy hamlet on the north coast of New South Wales, threatening all she holds dear.

Battle-weary Nicholas Lawson walked away from his military career leaving unfinished business. In a coastal backwater, that decision returns to haunt him. He remembers all too vividly his last lethal assignment in Afghanistan when Ellie’s sister, Nina, was shot and killed. Ellie’s been in his dreams ever since, even if she doesn’t remember him…

As a storm rages and floodwaters rise, Ellie struggles to save her community. But who can she trust? Nick Lawson, the dangerously attractive stranger with secrets, or an old friend who’s never let her down?

A compelling story of danger and desire by the award-winning author of Burning Lies.

I first heard about Helene Young in 2012 when her thrid book Burning Lies was released. Since then I have read all three of her romantic suspense novels – Wings of Fear, Shattered Sky and Burning Lies – and can not get enough of this amazing author’s writing. I first met Helene at my local library when she toured for the release of Burning Lies and as part of the 2012 National Year of Reading program.

If you like a bit of romance and a whole lot of action – suspense action, not necessarily romantic action, though that’s there as well – than Helene Young is an author I highly recommend you should read. Her writing is fresh and inspiring and there really is something in her books to cater for every book lovers need.

Half Moon Bay is Helene’s first stand alone book (for now at least) and I simply can not wait to see what she has in store for her readers.
