Can't-Wait Wednesday: The One by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 #HanoverSquarePress

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

TITLE: The One
AUTHOR: John Marrs
PUBLISHER: Hanover Square
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 368 pages
GENRE: Thriller
ISBN: 9781335005106
How far would you go to find The One?

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner—the one you’re genetically made for.

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…

A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences.

This one sounds intriguing! Just because there's a scientific "match" based on DNA doesn't mean that the heart will follow suit!! There are also lots of variables in terms of what exactly you are trying to "match." For example, are you looking for the perfect mate to produce the most viable offspring? What if someone decides that they don't want children. Does that change their "perfect mate" match?? This one definitely piques my interest!
