Waiting On Wednesday (66)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. WOW spotlights forthcoming titles that we absolutely can't wait to read.

Rosebush by Michele Jaffe

Summary:See Jane run. See Jane die.

Instead of celebrating Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey shore, Jane is in the hospital surrounded by teddy bears, trying to piece together what happened last night. One minute she was at a party, wearing fairy wings and cuddling with her boyfriend. The next, she was lying near-dead in a rosebush after a hit and run.

Everyone thinks it was an accident, despite the phone threats Jane swears were real. But the truth is a thorny thing. As Jane's boyfriend, friends, and admirers come to visit, more memories surface--not just from the party, but from deeper in her past...including the night her best friend Bonnie died.

With nearly everyone in her life a suspect now, Jane must unravel the mystery before her killer attacks again. Along the way, she is forced to examine the consequences of her life choices in this compulsively readable thriller. 

My Thoughts: I've been waiting on this one for a while now!

I almost preordered this one this week, but decided to wait, because sometimes Amazons preorders take FOREVER!

Heather said...

Wait, does this entire book take place from a hospital bed?
That could be really interesting and force the novel into some true mystery deductive work.
This is a great pick and has me wondering!

Check mine out HERE!

RhiannonPaille said...

This is different, and interesting. The blurb reminds me a bit about The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting, of course, also reminds me about CSI. So will see when it comes out, looks like a good read!

Gabrielle Carolina said...
