Waiting on Wednesday (16): Ripple

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Ripple
Author: Mandy Hubbard
Release Date: July 21st 2011
Why? I really liked You Wish, Mandy's second novel. I have yet to read her debut, Prada and Prejudice, but I have a copy in possession. :) The cover is amazing. I love novels with mermaids/sirens and the sea in it. Plus, it sounds so dark and mysterious--completely different to her first two books.

Synopsis (Goodreads):

Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn’t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love—again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.

Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgment, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldn’t. But when she’s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.

In Ripple, Mandy Hubbard spins a sea-ravaged tale of melancholy beauty, and the choices one girl makes between land and waves, love and freedom, her future—and her heart.
