Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we’re looking forward to.
This week’s can’t-wait-to-read selection is:
Title: The Good Daughter
Author: Karin Slaughter
Release Date: August 8, 2017
Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…
Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville’s notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case that unleashes the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won’t stay buried forever…
Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.
Why I’m looking forward to it:
It’s a new book by Karin Slaughter!! Not only a new book, but the start to a new series!!! (Well, the first full start. There’s a novella to actually start the series, and you should probably read that first). But it’s a new Karin Slaughter!!! She’s always on my auto-buy. Not only my auto-buy list, but also my much shorter “auto-buy and take the day off to read immediately” list.
What about you? What are you looking forward to this week?
