Can’t Wait Wednesday – ALL THE DANGEROUS THINGS by Stacy Willingham


“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 since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll 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 ALL THE DANGEROUS THINGS by Stacy Willingham.  I read Willingham’s debut thriller A Flicker in the Dark a couple of months ago and just devoured it.  It was definitely a book that lived up to the hype, so I was thrilled to see she has a new thriller coming out in January.  It sounds like just as addicting a read as her debut did too!


Publication Date:  January 10, 2023 by Minotaur Books

From Goodreads:

Following up her instant New York Times bestseller, A Flicker in the Dark, Stacy Willingham delivers a totally gripping thriller about a desperate mother with a troubled past.

One year ago, Isabelle Drake’s life changed forever: her toddler son, Mason, was taken out of his crib in the middle of the night while she and her husband were asleep in the next room. With little evidence and few leads for the police to chase, the case quickly went cold. However, Isabelle cannot rest until Mason is returned to her—literally.

Except for the occasional catnap or small blackout where she loses track of time, she hasn’t slept in a year.

Isabelle’s entire existence now revolves around finding him, but she knows she can’t go on this way forever. In hopes of jarring loose a new witness or buried clue, she agrees to be interviewed by a true-crime podcaster—but his interest in Isabelle’s past makes her nervous. His incessant questioning paired with her severe insomnia has brought up uncomfortable memories from her own childhood, making Isabelle start to doubt her recollection of the night of Mason’s disappearance, as well as second-guess who she can trust… including herself. But she is determined to figure out the truth no matter where it leads.

    I haven’t had insomnia, butI had the worst time staying asleep about a 18 mths ago. It drove me nuts, and i was sure insomnia was around the corner. I remember being exhausted and some days just felt Ike was going nuts, so I feel for Isabelle. The premise of this speaks to me, and a true crime podcaster? Oh yes please!
