I'm posting a 'soon to be released' book on Wednesdays. These will always be books that I am particularly looking forward to. I've edited this to link up to 'Can't-Wait Wednesday' hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. I'll plan to take part in that each week. Glad to have a place again to 'tie up'!
The book I've chosen for this week is the 10th book in one of my favorite series - Elly Griffiths' mysteries featuring Ruth Galloway. I am always delighted to know that there will be another visit with Ruth and Nelson, Cathbad and wee Kate, and all the other characters that have become like family to each other and to the readers. We'll travel to Italy for this story, and I'll see if I can wait for the US publication date. It comes out in the UK on February 8th - sigh! This week's book:
Publication Date: May 15th
It’s not every day that you’re summoned to the Italian countryside on business, so when archaeologist Angelo Morelli asks for Ruth Galloway’s help identifying bones found in the tiny hilltop town of Fontana Liri, she jumps at the chance to go, bringing her daughter along with her for a working vacation. Upon arriving, she begins to hear murmurs of Fontana Liri’s strong resistance movement during World War II and senses the townspeople are dancing around a deeply buried secret. But how could that be connected to the ancient remains she’s been studying?
Ruth is just beginning to get her footing in the dig when she’s thrown off-guard by the appearance of DCI Nelson. And when Ruth’s findings lead them to a modern-day murder, their holidays are both turned upside down, and they race to find out what darkness is lurking in this seemingly picturesque town.
