'Waiting on Wednesday' is a weekly post I'm going to try to keep up with here - well, weekly. Today I'm highlighting a new book by Carol Goodman that comes out early next month. I've read at least three books by this author and enjoy how she brings certain themes to life. I'm waiting on:
Publication Date: March 3rd
And then one more morning she gets a text at 2:50 AM: it’s Rudy, asking for help. When Tess picks him up she finds him drenched and shivering, with a dark stain on his sweatshirt. Four hours later, Tess gets a phone call from the Haywood school headmistress: Lila Zeller, Rudy’s girlfriend, has been found dead on the beach, not far from where Tess found Rudy just hours before.
As the investigation into Lila’s death escalates, Tess finds her family attacked on all sides. What first seemed like a tragic accidental death is turning into something far more sinister, and not only is Tess’s son a suspect but her husband is a person of interest too. But Lila’s death isn’t the first blemish on Haywood’s record, and the more Tess learns about Haywood’s fabled history, the more she realizes that not all skeletons will stay safely locked in the closet.
Have you read any of Carol Goodman's books? They are often set at schools or in the spooky forest or both. I'd love to see her at an event and don't you know it - she's going to be at Malice Domestic 2020 in early May and I'm not attending that conference this year. Sigh. Ah well. Perhaps at another time.
