Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday is my favorite day of the week because I get to share books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

Synopsis From Goodreads:

With the intrigue of Pretty Little Liars and plenty of romance, bestselling author Sarah Strohmeyer weaves a story of secrets and lies—set in a funeral parlor.

Growing up in a house of female morticians, Lily Graves knows all about buried secrets. She knows that perfect senior-class president Erin Donohue isn’t what she seems. She knows why Erin’s ex-boyfriend, hot football player Matt Houser, broke up with her. And she also knows that, even though she says she and Matt are just friends, there is something brewing between them — something Erin definitely did not like.

But secrets, even ones that are long buried, have a way of returning to haunt their keeper.

So when Erin is found dead the day after attacking Lily in a jealous rage, Lily's and Matt’s safe little lives, and the lives of everyone in their town of Potsdam, begin to unravel. And their relationship — which grew from innocent after-school tutoring sessions to late-night clandestine rendezvous — makes them both suspects.

As her world crumbles around her, Lily must figure out the difference between truth and deception, genuine love and a web of lies. And she must do it quickly, before the killer claims another victim.

Doesn't this sound awesome and different? A funeral parlor, female morticians, and the last name Graves. What a combination! I haven't read anything by this author before, but I am looking forward to reading this one.

What are you waiting on this week? Be sure to leave me a link to your WoW post.

  12. I hadn't heard of this book before! That's an interesting concept - so much death, as you pointed out! This isn't a book I would typically read, but I might check it out! I hope you enjoy it when you read it. Perhaps check Edelweiss - Harper just uploaded a tonnnn of books recently :D

  14. This sounds great! Definitely different from Sarah Strohmeyers other novels that tend to stick to being cute contemporaries! I just got it on Edelweiss, so we'll see!
