Waiting on Wednesday: Stars Over Clear Lake

Waiting on Wednesday was a weekly meme once hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Although Jill no longer hosts this meme, I am continuing to post information about a soon to be released title each Wednesday that I can't wait to read.

This week's pick:  Stars Over Clear Lake by Loretta Ellsworth
Due out: May 2, 2017

Mesmerizing and romantic, Stars Over Clear Lake transports readers to the Surf Ballroom, where musical acts became legends in the 1940s and which holds the key to one woman’s deepest secret.

Lorraine Kindred’s most cherished memories are of the Surf Ballroom, the place where youth lost themselves to the brassy sounds and magnetic energy of the big band swing, where boys spent their last nights before shipping off to war―and where Lorraine herself was swept away by a star-crossed romance.
Returning to the ballroom for the first time in decades, Lorraine enters a dazzling world she thought long vanished. But as the sparkling past comes to life, so does the fateful encounter that forced her to choose between her heart and her duty all those years ago―and Lorraine must face the secret she’s buried ever since. Along the way, she’ll rediscover herself, her passion, and her capacity for resilience.
Set during the 1940s and the present and inspired by a real-life ballroom, Loretta Ellsworth’s Stars Over Clear Lake is a moving story of forbidden love, lost love, everlasting love―and self love.

Awwww that cover is so swoony! It reminds me of that one movie with Angelina Jolie (Changeling? Maybe?). I haven't read many books set in the 1900s, though I love historical fiction "older" than that (1800s and before). :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

Have a fabulous week. =)
