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.
I love Lisa Unger's books, especially the ones set in upstate New York in The Hollows. I'm not sure this one, a standalone, is set in that location, but the autumn red leaves on the cover make me wonder. This week, I'm waiting on:
by Lisa Unger
Publication Date: April 25th
Claudia Bishop’s perfect life fell apart when the aftermath of a brutal assault left her with a crumbling marriage, a newborn daughter, and a constant sense of anxiety about the world around her. Now, looking for a fresh start with a home restoration project and growing blog, Claudia takes on a crumbling old house—one that unbeknownst to her has an ugly history and may hide long buried secrets.
For Zoey Drake the defining moment of her childhood was the horrific home invasion murder of her parents. Years later, she has embraced the rage that fuels her. Training in the martial arts has made her strong and ready to face the demons from the past—and within.
Strangers to each other, and walking very different paths in the wake of trauma, these two women are on a collision course—because Zoey’s past nightmare and Claudia’s dreams for her future take place in the very same house. As Zoey seeks justice, and Claudia seeks peace, both will confront the monsters at the door that are the most frightening of all.
