Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature of the Breaking the Spine blog.  It's a great way to share information about forthcoming books with other readers.

This week's anticipated book: 

Publisher: Plume
Publication Date: July 29, 2014

From Goodreads: A fearless and spirited pilot conquers Hollywood. Now can she survive movie stardom?

In 1945 Velva Jean Hart is a bona fide war heroine. After a newsreel film of her triumphant return to America, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer promises to make her a star. They give her a new life story and a brand-new name. As Kit Rogers, she navigates the movie sets, recording sessions, parties, staged romances, and occasional backstabbing that accompany her newfound fame. She also navigates real-life romance, finding herself caught between a charismatic young writer and a sexy and enigmatic musician from her past. But when one of her best friends dies mysteriously and the most powerful studio in the world launches a cover-up, Velva Jean goes in search of the truth risking her own life, as well as her heart, in the process.

Set during Hollywood s Golden Age and peopled with a cast of unforgettable characters, "American Blonde" will mesmerize readers of "The Chaperone "as well as fans of the Velva Jean series."

Actually, this is no longer anticipated as it just came in the mail 20 minutes ago.
