Can't-Wait Wednesday: Wicked Like a Wildfire

Amber the Blonde Writer - Can't-Wait Wednesday

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme that focuses on the yet-to-be released books we're waiting for and is hosted by Wishful Endings. It's inspired by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm highlighting a family-oriented fantasy novel!

Goodreads summary:

Amber the Blonde Writer - Waiting on Wednesday - Wicked like a WildfireAll the women in Iris and Malina’s family have the unique magical ability or “gleam” to manipulate beauty. Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her kaleidoscope visions into glasswork, while Malina interprets moods as music. But their mother has strict rules to keep their gifts a secret, even in their secluded sea-side town. Iris and Malina are not allowed to share their magic with anyone, and above all, they are forbidden from falling in love. 

But when their mother is mysteriously attacked, the sisters will have to unearth the truth behind the quiet lives their mother has built for them. They will discover a wicked curse that haunts their family line—but will they find that the very magic that bonds them together is destined to tear them apart forever?

Wicked Like a Wildfire is the first in a two-book series. Readers will be rapt with anticipation for the sequel.

Why I'm Waiting:

I am a sucker for sibling stories. My brother and I have always been close, and that's a bond that's very rarely highlighted as something positive and definitely not center-stage even if it is. Frozen did it right with the sister love, and I hope this novel ends up on a more friendship/family-centered story line than a romantic one.
