Waiting on Wednesday: Tiny Little Thing

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Tiny Little Thing by Beatriz Williams
Pub. Date: June 23, 2015


Goodreads says, "In the summer of 1966, Christina Hardcastle—“Tiny” to her illustrious family—stands on the brink of a breathtaking future. Of the three Schuyler sisters, she’s the one raised to marry a man destined for leadership, and with her elegance and impeccable style, she presents a perfect camera-ready image in the dawning age of television politics. Together she and her husband, Frank, make the ultimate power couple: intelligent, rich, and impossibly attractive. It seems nothing can stop Frank from rising to national office, and he’s got his sights set on a senate seat in November. But as the season gets underway at the family estate on Cape Cod, three unwelcome visitors appear in Tiny’s perfect life: her volatile sister Pepper, an envelope containing incriminating photograph, and the intimidating figure of Frank’s cousin Vietnam-war hero Caspian, who knows more about Tiny’s rich inner life than anyone else. As she struggles to maintain the glossy façade on which the Hardcastle family’s ambitions are built, Tiny begins to suspect that Frank is hiding a reckless entanglement of his own…one that may unravel both her own ordered life and her husband’s promising career."
Guys, I loved her other novel, A Hundred Summers, so very much. It's one of my all-time favorite beach reads. This book also sounds intriguing. I mean would you look at this gorgeous cover?! I love the setting of Cape Cod; plus, the main character's name is Christina. Gotta love that! What do you guys think?

  1. Oh, yes! I remember A Hundred Summers was on my summer wish list last year, but I never got around to picking up a copy. I must get around to it. This one sounds interesting too!

  2. I still haven't read A Hundred Summers though I did read The Secret Life of Violet Grant which features some of the same characters and the Schuyler family but I can't remember if Pepper or Christina were mentioned. This sounds like it could be good.

  8. The first thought that came to mind was the Kennedys. And because of that thought, I will gladly give this book a read. The intrigue of this book pulls me in. Definitely on the TBR pile.
