Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This weeks' pick:

The Stuff That Never Happened by Maddie Dawson
Due out August 3, 2010
What if you were married to a wonderful husband for twenty-eight years but in love with another man? What if you were in love with them both? Annabelle McKay knows she shouldn’t have any complaints. She’s been in a stable marriage that’s lasted almost three decades and has provided her with two wonderful children, thousands of family dinners around a sturdy oak table, and a husband so devoted that he schedules lovemaking into his calendar every Wednesday morning. Other wives envy the fact that Grant is not the type of man who would ever cheat on her or leave her for a younger woman. The trouble is Annabelle isn’t sure she wants to be married to Grant anymore. The trouble is she’s still in love with someone else. In the early tumultuous years of her marriage, Annabelle carried on a clandestine affair with the one person whose betrayal would hurt her husband the most. When it ended, she and Grant found their way back together and made a pact that they would never speak of that time again. But now years later, with her children grown and gone, and an ominous distance opening between them, she can’t help but remember those glorious, passionate days and wonder if she chose the right man. Then, when called to New York City to help care for her pregnant daughter, Annabelle bumps into her old lover. Offered a second chance at an unforgettable love, she must decide between the man who possesses her heart and the husband who has stood squarely by her side. A journey into the what-ifs that haunt us all, The Stuff That Never Happened is an intricate, heartfelt examination of modern marriage that brims with truths about the nature of romantic love.

I am not sure how I feel about this one. On the one hand, it sounds good and intriguing, but on the other, I hate cheating spouse stories where it feels like the author is pulling the strings instead of letting them go where they may. If you review it, I'll be interested to know what you think! My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.
