WoW [16]

Waiting on Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW feature is:
The Longings of Wayward Girls by Karen Brown
Expected Publication: July 2, 2013
Publisher: Washington Square Press

Summary via Goodreads...
The dark side of a seemingly perfect Connecticut suburb comes to light when one woman’s long-buried secrets refuse to stay in the past, in this engrossing debut novel of psychological suspense. It’s an idyllic New England summer, and Sadie is a precocious only child on the edge of adolescence. It seems like July and August will pass lazily by, just as they have every year before. But one day, Sadie and her best friend play a seemingly harmless prank on a neighborhood girl. Soon after, that same little girl disappears from a backyard barbecue—and she is never seen again.
Twenty years pass, and Sadie is still living in the same, quiet suburb. She’s married to a good man, has two beautiful children, and seems to have put her past behind her. But when a boy from her old neighborhood returns to town, the nightmares of that summer begin to resurface, and its unsolved mysteries finally become clear.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT...
... I love a good suspense thriller. This sounds like a great summer read with a twist. Nothing like a great mystery to keep me glued.
So what are you all waiting on? Please share.

  9. Nice pick, I have not heard of it. Adding to my TBR list. I just finished The Ruining by Anna Collomore, it is a psychological thriller. If you haven't checked it out then it's definitely worth it!

  15. For some reason it reminds me of desperate housewives with the suburban setting, and buried secrets. I'll keep my eye open for this one.
