Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Welcome back to New Orleans.
Where the streets swirl with jazz and beauty.
Where the houses breathe with ghosts.

A year ago, Rebecca Brown escaped death in a New Orleans cemetery. Now she has returned to this haunting city. She is looking forward to seeing Anton Grey, the boy who may or may not have her heart.

But she also meets a ghost: a troubled boy who insists only she can help him. Soon Rebecca finds herself embroiled in another murder mystery from more than a century ago. But as she tries to right wrongs, she finds more questions than answers: Is she putting her friends, and herself, in danger? Can she trust this new ghost? And has she stumbled into something much bigger and more serious than she understands?

My thoughts:  I really enjoyed Ruined, so I'm excited to get back to these characters and the eerie New Orleans setting!


  1. I sadly haven't read this series yet but it sounds really good!

  2. I haven't heard of the book.

    My WoW - http://bookbloggermom.blogspot.com/2012/09/waiting-on-wednesday-10.html

  3. I remember the cover of the first book in the series (liking it a lot), but I never picked it up. Glad you enjoyed it and are looking forward to the sequel!

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW here.

  4. Interesting. I haven't read the first, and don't think I've heard of the series before, but the cover reminds me of "Broken" by A.E. Rought.
