Can't-Wait Wednesday: For Your Own Good

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!
 
Samantha Downing
Expected publication date: July 20, 2021
USA Today bestselling author Samantha Downing is back with her latest sneaky thriller set at a prestigious private school—complete with interfering parents, overeager students, and one teacher who just wants to teach them all a lesson…

Teddy Crutcher has won Teacher of the Year at the esteemed Belmont Academy, home to the best and brightest.

He says his wife couldn't be more proud—though no one has seen her in a while.

Teddy really can’t be bothered with the death of a school parent that’s looking more and more like murder or the student digging a little too deep into Teddy’s personal life. His main focus is on pushing these kids to their full academic potential.

All he wants is for his colleagues—and the endlessly meddlesome parents—to stay out of his way.

It's really too bad that sometimes excellence can come at such a high cost. - from Goodreads

Samantha Downing always has the best blurbs that will shock you and draw you in, and her stories don't disappoint either!

  7. I haven't tried one of Downing's books yet but the blurb for this one grabbed my attention as soon as I read it. I love it when books are set at private schools.
