Waiting on Wednesday - The Shimmering Road



This is a weekly event that highlights a book we can't wait to be published.  It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  I'm not sure that Jill is still blogging, but we'll link to her blog anyway.

One of my favorite books last year was a debut novel by Hester Young, The Gates of Evangeline.  I talked about it here.  This author has said that her book contract is a trilogy and the next book is coming out soon.  This week, I'm waiting on:




Publication Date:  February 14th

When soon-to-be mother Charlotte “Charlie” Cates begins to have recurring dreams about harm coming to her unborn daughter, she knows these are not the nightmares of an anxious mom-to-be. They are the result of her mysterious gift. But before she can decipher what these dreams might mean, Charlie learns that the mother who abandoned her when she was a toddler is the victim of a double murder in Arizona. The other victim—Jasmine, a half-sister Charlie never knew she had—has left behind a child, a little girl who speaks to Charlie in her dreams and was present on the night of the murders. Convinced that she must help her orphaned niece, Charlie travels to Tucson, Arizona, where she must confront her painful ties to her mother and delve into her sister’s shadowy past.

To untangle the web of secrets that will reveal the truth of her nightmares, Charlie can no longer avoid her family’s checkered history. Who is in the racy photos that turned up in Jasmine’s apartment? Where is her niece’s father, whom Jasmine was rumored to have been seeing again on the sly? Was her mother’s charity work in Mexico really as selfless as it seemed? And most important of all, what did her niece really witness on the night of the murders?

The search for answers leads Charlie across the Mexican border, from the resort town of Rocky Point to the border town of Nogales, and elucidates the meaning of her dreams in most unexpected ways. Ultimately, to protect her niece and her unborn child, Charlie must battle not just evil but the forces of nature, in one final terrifying encounter in the Tucson desert.

  2. This one sounds far too dark for me. A 'shimmering' road - it sounds terrifying!

  5. I haven't seen this and while I remember the name Hester Young I had forgotten about the book. I hope you enjoy the 2nd book as much as the first and I'll definitely have to look for Young's first book.

    1. I'm hoping so too. We shall see how it goes when I'm able to read it. I'm wondering where the location of the 3rd book will be. From Louisiana to Arizona to....?

  6. I'm suddenly reminded that I truly *meant* to read The Gates of Evangeline (heard so many great things!) last year and never did...uh, oh. I'd better get to it, huh? Thanks so much for sharing this and jogging my memory!

  7. I didn't love THE GATES OF EVANGELINE, but I am interested to see what happens next in the series. And the Tucson setting should be interesting.
