Can't Wait Wednesday - The Hiding Place



I'm posting a 'soon to be released' book on Wednesdays.  These will always be books that I am particularly looking forward to.  I'll be linking up to Tressa's blog at Wishful Endings and plan to take part in this each week.

The book I'm featuring this week is the second by the author.  I read her debut book, The Chalk Man, last year and wrote about it here.  This week, I can't wait for:




Publication Date:  February 5th

Joe never wanted to come back to Arnhill. After the way things ended with his old gang--the betrayal, the suicide, the murder--and after what happened when his sister went missing, the last thing he wanted to do was return to his hometown. But Joe doesn't have a choice. Because judging by what was done to that poor Morton kid, what happened all those years ago to Joe's sister is happening again. And only Joe knows who is really at fault.

Lying his way into a teaching job at his former high school is the easy part. Facing off with former friends who are none too happy to have him back in town--while avoiding the enemies he's made in the years since--is tougher. But the hardest part of all will be returning to that abandoned mine where it all went wrong and his life changed forever, and finally confronting the shocking, horrifying truth about Arnhill, his sister, and himself. Because for Joe, the worst moment of his life wasn't the day his sister went missing.

It was the day she came back.

    1. I'm wondering if this one will have that whole '80's/Stephen King-ish vibe that the first one had. Guess we'll see.

  12. The Chalk Man sounds really familiar- I think I've seen some good reviews of that one. Positive buzz anyway. Coming back and having to face old secrets- sounds like a good one!

    1. Yes, THE CHALK MAN was kind of an homage to Stephen King and the '80's or that's how it seemed to me. I'll be curious whether this one feels the same.

  14. Sounds intriguing. I haven't read the first one. Is this the second in a series? Do you need to read The Chalk Man?

    1. No, Gayle, these are standalone books. You don't have to read THE CHALK MAN first.

  15. I have Chalk Man on my kindle and still haven't gotten around to it! This sounds like another good thriller though!
