Waiting on Wednesday – Stone Cove Island

Waiting on Wednesday – Stone Cove Island

Hi all!

I saw this meme (or whatever the name was) at various other blogs and I was interested. I did some reading on it, and so, with happiness I can tell you all I am also doing this one on my blog! I am really new to this, so sorry if I don’t get it right immediately. I am very excited to do this, and you can expect Waiting on Wednesday every week starting now.

So first week. My most anticipated read that is coming up would be drum roll:

20819730The Stepford Wives meets Stephen King in this debut mystery: a sleepy New England beach town is wrecked by a hurricane that reveals an unthinkable 30-year-old secret.

When a catastrophic hurricane devastates Stone Cove Island, a serene New England resort community, everyone pulls together to rebuild. Seventeen-year-old Eliza Elliot volunteers to clean out the island’s iconic lighthouse and stumbles upon a secret in the wreckage: a handwritten, anonymous confession to a thirty-year-old crime.

Bess Linsky’s unsolved murder has long haunted the island, and the letter turns the town inside out. Everyone who knew Bess is suddenly a suspect. Soon Eliza finds herself in the throes of an investigation she never wanted or asked for. As Stone Cove Island fights to recover from disaster, Eliza plunges the locals back into a nightmare they believed was long buried.

So why do I really want to read this book? 

Well that is an easy one to answer. I love (isolate) island settings, especially when they bring murder, death and mystery with them. And this book has that all! I am really interested in seeing how the hurricane affected the town, and I am also really curious as to what happened 30 years ago. What happened that led to a murder, why didn’t anyone solve it? I can always use a nice mystery book, so I am eager to read this one.

Well that was it for my first Waiting on Wednesday post, hopefully people will like this one!
One last question: What is it you are waiting for on this Wednesday?
