Sara doesn't realize that her Uncle Lowell is playing matchmaker for her until she arrives at his cabin in Washington for an unexpected visit and discovers that he's missing. A neighbor informs Sara that Lowell has "gone hunting," which Sara knows is a lie since her uncle avoids any kind of blood sport. When Sara turns to Adrian Saville, the man her uncle told Sara to contact if he ever disappears, Sara finds Adrian remarkably sanguine about the whole matter. Adrian then really shocks Sara by informing her that Lowell intends on "giving" Sara to him as a reward for finishing his first novel. Well, if Adrian thinks she is some literary prize for the taking, Sara has a completely different ending in mind for this new author. Originally published in 1985, The Waiting Game is graced with a cast of delightfully entertaining characters and Krentz's deliciously tart sense of humor. -- Booklist, Septmeber 15, 2011
