Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
My pick for this week is Kate Brian's upcoming Shadowlands . . .
Rory Miller had one chance to fight back and she took it. Rory survived… and the serial killer who attacked her escaped. Now that the infamous Steven Nell is on the loose, Rory must enter the witness protection with her father and sister, Darcy, leaving their friends and family without so much as a goodbye.Obviously a ton of my wanting it comes from that synopsis and that cover - really that cover (it's sort of an ethereal 'The Birds' - which almost makes no sense, but only almost).
Starting over in a new town with only each other is unimaginable for Rory and Darcy. They were inseparable as children, but now they can barely stand each other. As the sisters settle in to Juniper Landing, a picturesque vacation island, it seems like their new home may be just the fresh start they need. They fall in with a group of beautiful, carefree teens and spend their days surfing, partying on the beach, and hiking into endless sunsets. But just as they’re starting to feel safe again, one of their new friends goes missing. Is it a coincidence? Or is the nightmare beginning all over again?(
But also, please tell me you know the song 'Shadowlands'
