Can’t Wait Wednesday #19: Hummingbird Heart (Haunted Hearts Legacy #2) by A.G. Howard

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight
and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on
Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.  My pick this week is a sequel once again. This time however, it is a sequel that takes place 19 years after the first book.  However, I love this author, and will read just about anything she writes.  I’ve not read anything of hers that I didn’t love yet.  You can read my review of the first book in the series here:  The Architect of SongHere’s the blurb of this sequel from Goodreads:

Shortly after escaping a circus tragedy, young Italian orphan, Willow Antoniette, seeks refuge at The Manor of Diversions—a holiday resort in England born of a ghost story. For eleven years, she’s raised alongside the children of the resort’s owners: Julian, his twin brother, Nick, and their younger sister Emilia. Now that Willow is of marriable age, she’s determined to escape finishing school along with everyone’s efforts to make her a proper lady. The only man she wants to spend her life with is Julian, after all. Yet how can she tell him, when he thinks of her as nothing but a friend? 

As a machinist and engineer, Julian Thornton prefers a governable life. He can’t allow his ever-deepening attraction for Willow to distract from his amusement park plans to lure a younger, wealthier clientele to their family’s resort. In hopes to escape Willow and find investors, Julian sets off on a transatlantic ocean liner headed for the St. Louis World’s Fair, unaware Willow has secretly stowed away on the same ship. 

A tiny, mute orphan named Newton and a pair of haunted Italian shoes bring Willow and Julian face to face on deck. Forced to work together to solve the mystery of Newton and his vindictive, ghostly companion, Julian and Willow can no longer fight their untapped passions. However, time to admit their true feelings is running out, for the ghost and her murderer have enlisted them as unsuspecting pawns in a karmic game of cat-and-mouse that could cost all of them their lives.

So, have you read this author?  Or started this series? What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

      I finished the Splintered series, except for the one book that came after, I have it, own it, but need to read it. I'm intrigued by the amount of time that has passed before this and to see where it goes next. Thanks for stopping by!

      Oh, that will be nice to read them right in a row, although with the time difference between the two, it might be that big of a deal. Thanks for visiting!

    The thought of htem on a ship solving this creepy mystery is actually kind of claustrophobic! Still, a compelling read from the sounds of it!

    • Lisa Mandina

      I've never been on a ship for more than an hour or two, so I can't even imagine something like this. But the author will totally build the world for me, she's great at that. Thanks for visiting!
