Waiting on Wednesday (29)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Wednesday meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine Participants highlight an upcoming unpublished novel they're interested in.

Title: Betsy Wickwire's Dirty Secret
Author: Vicki Grant
Release Date: August 16, 2011
Publisher: Harper Trophy Canada

Summary
Betsy’s life is officially over: Dumped by her boyfriend, betrayed by her best friend . . . how is she ever going to show her face again?

Determined to avoid everyone and everything from her previous life, Betsy stumbles into an unusual café and an even more unusual girl. Dolores Morris—a mouthy, green-haired outsider Betsy can’t quite remember from school—talks her into starting a cleaning service. Before she knows it, Betsy is down on her knees, dressed like a dust bunny, scrubbing strangers’ toilets.

It’s a long way for the most popular girl in school to have fallen. But Betsy finds comfort in the wine bottles and prescriptions and other dirty secrets she finds hidden in her clients’ homes. She also finds love with a client’s son, friendship with Dolores and a liberated sense of herself. Her new life soon falls apart, though, when valuables begin to go missing from some of the homes she and Dolores have been cleaning. Betsy discovers the hard way that not all dirty secrets can just be swept under the rug
I found this one on someone's In My Mailbox post last week. Sounds very cute! And it's Canadian!

  4. I just read one of Vicki's other books (Not Suitable for Parental Viewing, or whatever it's called) and I enjoyed it, so I may have to look out for this one! I love reading Canadian authors when I can, though I must say I've been failing at it lately.
