All I Want For Christmas Is... (7)

This is a feature/meme where I choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto my wishlist – and I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get! I'll be posting my pick each Thursday, but you guys can link up and visit other people's posts all through the week.

This week's pick: Where the Truth Lies by Jessica Warman
From Goodreads:

"On the surface, Emily Meckler leads the perfect life. She has three best friends, two loving parents, and the ideal setup at the Connecticut prep school where her father is the headmaster. But Emily also suffers from devastating nightmares about fire and water, and nobody knows why. Then the enigmatic Del Sugar enters her life, and Emily is immediately swept away—but her passionate relationship with Del is just the first of many things that aren't quite what they seem in Emily's life. As the lies she's been told start to unravel, Emily must set out to discover the truth regarding her nightmare; on a journey that will lead her to question everything she thought she knew about love, family, and her own idyllic past.This companion novel to Warman's critically acclaimed Breathless proves that sometimes the biggest lies are told to the people you love the most."

This one sounds full of mystery and secrets! I haven't read Breathless but it sounds like Where the Truth Lies works as a stand-alone, and I'm intrigued by Emily discovering the truth about her past and her nightmares. Also, the cover = gorgeous, love the angles used and the color of her outfit.

And to add to the holiday spirit... here are some pics from my yard today. Is it ever snowing! (So unusual for Vancouver at this time of year!)
