Alright my peeps! As I’m sure you’re tired of hearing about my leaving my current job for another this will be my last mention of it (probably)! I finally told my staff yesterday after hiring my replacement on Friday. It’s definitely bitter sweet but it was certainly one of the hardest things I’ve done in a while. I’m very sad to be leaving a team where I am valued and needed for an unknown venture. It’s been incredibly stressful so reading and blogging has had to take a back seat. However, I’ll have a new (special) recipe and review for you on Friday and another on Sunday! Friday, I’ll be bringing you Where The Crawdads Sings by Delia Owens and Sunday I’ll be bringing you Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan.
However, TODAY IS WEDNESDAY! Which means me and the ladies over at Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee and I are bringing you another installment of Can’t Wait Wednesday. Can’t wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
This week I’m really excited about an upcoming Traveling Sister’s read The Craftsman by Sarah J. Bolton. I’m definitely in the mood for some creepy reads because it’s October – so, why not? This one is definitely dealing out the creepy feels in spades. From just the synopsis I’ve got shivers and I can tell that once I pick this one up I wont be able to put it down! There’s some great questions posed as well so I’m even more excited to read it with a fun group of ladies so we can discuss the mysteries that are sure to be in this one!
For a long time I was not a big fan of dual timelines but they’re very prevalent in thrillers and mysteries and I’ve come to love them. This one presents a unique blend of a bit of historical fiction along with the dual timelines along with what is sure to be some great police procedural drama. There’s nothing quite as fun as curling up for a good scary read when it’s dreary outside and we’ve been getting non-stop rain here in Dallas for weeks so this is perfect for this weather!
Catching him will make her career – and change her forever.
On the hottest day of the year, Assistant Commissioner Florence Lovelady attends the funeral of Larry Glassbrook, the convicted murderer she arrested thirty years earlier. A master carpenter and funeral director, Larry imprisoned his victims, alive, in the caskets he made himself. Clay effigies found entombed with their bodies suggested a motive beyond the worst human depravity.
13-year- old Patsy Wood has been missing for two days, the third teenager to disappear in as many months. New to the Lancashire police force and struggling to fit in, WPC Lovelady is sent to investigate an unlikely report from school children claiming to have heard a voice calling for help. A voice from deep within a recent grave.
As she tries to lay her ghosts to rest, Florence is drawn back to the Glassbrooks’ old house, in the shadow of Pendle Hill, where she once lodged with the family. She is chilled by the discovery of another effigy – one bearing a remarkable resemblance to herself. Is the killer still at large? Is Florence once again in terrible danger? Or, this time, could the fate in store be worse than even her darkest imaginings?
