Waiting on Wednesday - Feb. 3, 2010

This weekly event is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we get to share which upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

You may have noticed in previous posts, I'm a proud Canadian/Torontonian. When I find (fiction) books that have local content, it's a major boon for me. This brings me to my choice for this week's Waiting on Wednesday.

I picked up Stuck in Downward Dog by Chantel Simmons last year. Being a fan of Yoga (but not a regular participant :-p), the title intrigued me. Not to be confused with a Yoga instruction manual, it's a story about a woman struggling with a break-up and her future, done with humour. I had read it before I began blogging, so I don't have a review to offer up but I found it was a cute, enjoyable book. I'm very happy to see Chantel Simmons has her sophomore effort, Love Struck, due to be released this month and it's my choice for Waiting on Wednesday.

From the Publisher:

In the vein of her popular debut novel, Stuck in Downward Dog, author Chantel Simmons brings us a funny, heartfelt story about losing the perfect life-and finding a real one. When twenty-eight-year-old image consultant Poppy Ross discovers her beloved husband Parker is having an affair, she is dumbfounded. Before she has a chance to confront him, however, he is struck by lightning. When he regains consciousness, he has lost his short-term memory-including that of the affair. Given this unlikely chance to erase history, Poppy decides to remake herself in the mistress''s image, so that Parker might never be tempted to stray again. Her quest to become the perfect woman has disastrous and hilarious results, however, and just might turn out to be the worst thing possible for her marriage.
