Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE HUNTRESS by Kate Quinn


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE HUNTRESS by Kate Quinn.  Quinn’s The Alice Network was one of my favorite reads last year, so I was so excited to hear that she has another book coming out next year.  And this one just sounds incredible.  Nina, Ian, and Jordan all sound like characters that I’m going to fall in love with, and the idea that they’re hunting Nazis, especially the infamous “Huntress” has me on the edge of my seat waiting to get my hands on a copy of this book!


THE HUNTRESS by Kate Quinn

Publication Date:  February 26, 2019


From Goodreads

From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel, The Alice Network, comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America.

In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted…

Bold, reckless Nina Markova grows up on the icy edge of Soviet Russia, dreaming of flight and fearing nothing. When the tide of war sweeps over her homeland, she gambles everything to join the infamous Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on Hitler’s eastern front. But when she is downed behind enemy lines and thrown across the path of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, Nina must use all her wits to survive.

British war correspondent Ian Graham has witnessed the horrors of war from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials. He abandons journalism after the war to become a Nazi hunter, yet one target eludes him: the Huntress. Fierce, disciplined Ian must join forces with brazen, cocksure Nina, the only witness to escape the Huntress alive. But a shared secret could derail their mission, unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.

Seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride grows up in post WWII Boston, determined despite family opposition to become a photographer. At first delighted when her long-widowed father brings home a fiancée, Jordan grows increasingly disquieted by the soft-spoken German widow who seems to be hiding something. Armed only with her camera and her wits, Jordan delves into her new stepmother’s past and slowly realizes there are mysteries buried deep in her family. But Jordan’s search for the truth may threaten all she holds dear.

    Ooo… this one sounds really interesting, Suzanne! I love the idea that it is the romance between her father and a widow that sparks the investigation…

    Ooh this one sounds fascinating. I love books that take place around WWII; there are just so many topics you can focus on and different ways to tell a story in that time period. I hadn’t heard of this one, so thanks for sharing.
