Waiting on Wednesday #17

 

Is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases were eagerly anticipating.  The book I'm most excited about this week is...
 
Shadowlands

Shadowlands by Kate Brian
Publication date: January 8th 2013
Publisher: Hyperion

 

Rory Miller had one chance to fight back and she took it. Rory survived… and the serial killer who attacked her escaped. Now that the infamous Steven Nell is on the loose, Rory must enter the witness protection with her father and sister, Darcy, leaving their friends and family without so much as a goodbye.

Starting over in a new town with only each other is unimaginable for Rory and Darcy. They were inseparable as children, but now they can barely stand each other. As the sisters settle in to Juniper Landing, a picturesque vacation island, it seems like their new home may be just the fresh start they need. They fall in with a group of beautiful, carefree teens and spend their days surfing, partying on the beach, and hiking into endless sunsets. But just as they’re starting to feel safe again, one of their new friends goes missing. Is it a coincidence? Or is the nightmare beginning all over again?

I LOVE mysteries and this one sounds brilliant!  The main character Rory already seems like a girl I can get behind and root for. She must be strong to fight off a serial killer and escape.  Add to that, there's complicated relationship between Rory and her sister. I really want to know what's behind that drama.  I don't really see anything mentioned about a romance, but a girl can hope.  Plus, I just love that cover, gorgeous!!  I'm dying to get my hands on this. 

So what are you currently lusting after?  We'd love to know.  Link us up and we'll check it out.

  13. Such a pretty cover! The birds, the background, the bold text - all so appealing and thankfully unique (these days, so many are alike).

    Sounds creepy but I like a bit of suspense and intrigue so I'm looking forward to checking this one out.

    No romance? Aw! Maybe if we hope together? ;D

  14. Shadow Lands definitely sounds interesting, although the group of "beautiful teenagers" is slightly suspect. ;)

  21. I'm really excited for this one too Rachel! It sounds creepy and twisty and knowing me I'll probably flip to the back page first to see how it ends because I can't deal otherwise. I know. I fail at suspense.
