Waiting On Wednesday [@elsiechapman @abramskids]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:



ALONG THE INDIGO by Elsie Chapman
The town of Glory is famous for two things: businesses that front for seedy, if not illegal, enterprises and the suicides that happen along the Indigo River. Marsden is desperate to escape the “bed-and-breakfast” where her mother works as a prostitute—and where her own fate has been decided—and she wants to give her little sister a better life. But escape means money, which leads Mars to skimming the bodies that show up along the Indigo River. It’s there that she runs into Jude, who has secrets of his own and whose brother’s suicide may be linked to Mars’s own sordid family history. As they grow closer, the two unearth secrets that could allow them to move forward . . . or chain them to the Indigo forever.

Why?

Elsie Chapman is one of those authors who I checked and checked for any new release from. I really enjoyed both Dualed and Divided and have been eager to see what there would b to read from her next.

I'm not quite sure what to make of the town of Glory - it sounds a bit like the Old West mixed with something dystopian mixed with a contemporary town. I loved the setting and atmosphere of Divided, that it was a recognizable environment but had an almost noir feeling at times. I am excited to read Along the Indigo, to see how the town operates, find out who Mars and Jude are and see how their story goes.



That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
