Waiting on Wednesday: The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer
Release Date: November 15, 2016

I know not everyone loved the Twilight series, but I did.  I tried reading The Host, but it was too Sci-fi for me and I called it quits before I was very far into the book.  I love mysteries, so this sounds like another Meyer book that will be perfect for me. 

The ChemistGoodreads Overview:

In this gripping page-turner, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.

She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Now, she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.

Resolving to meet the threat head on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life, but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's bestselling authors.


  1. I've seen a lot of excitement about this new Meyer book! It's been a long time since her last one. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

  2. I loved the Twilight series, and normally love sci-fi, but didn't love The Host. Not sure this one is my type, but since I love her writing, I'll probably give it a try. Thanks for stopping by my WOW earlier!
