Waiting on Wednesday (30)

Waiting on" Wednesday is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases. 

Releases January 19, 2015

FROM GOODREADS: From the award-winning author of The Lake of Dead Languages comes a chilling new psychological thriller about a professor accused of killing her favorite student in a hit-and-run accident.

Nan Lewis—a creative writing professor at a state university in upstate New York—is driving home from a faculty holiday party after finding out she’s been denied tenure. On her way, she hits a deer, but when she gets out of her car to look for it, the deer is nowhere to be found. Eager to get home and out of the oncoming snowstorm, Nan is forced to leave her car at the bottom of her snowy driveway to wait out the longest night of the year—and the lowest point of her life…

The next morning, Nan is woken up by a police officer at her door with terrible news—one of her students, Leia Dawson, was killed in a hit-and-run on River Road the night before. And because of the damage to her car, Nan is a suspect. In the days following the accident, Nan finds herself shunned by the same community that rallied around her when her own daughter was killed in an eerily similar accident six years prior. When Nan begins finding disturbing tokens that recall the death of Nan’s own daughter, Nan suspects that the two accidents are connected.

As she begins to dig further, she discovers that everyone around her, including Leia, is hiding secrets. But can she uncover them, clear her name, and figure out who really killed Leia before her reputation is destroyed for good?

WHY I'M WAITING:  I love books with a snowy, winter setting, especially those in the thriller/horror genres.  I haven't read anything by this author but can't wait to change that when this one is released. 

What are you waiting for this week?

  9. Ooh, this sounds intriguing :) I'm not sure if River Road is my type of read but I hope you enjoy it when it releases, Barb!

  10. Oh, Barb....first of all, so sorry for the late comment back.....

    Anyway, I don't normally read this type of book, but this particular one sounds REALLY intriguing! I do like plots in which an innocent person is unfairly targeted, and then they fight to get justice and clear their name! (Maybe this is because I've been bullied a lot in my life....)

    Well, at least in fiction, justice is sometimes done, and I believe that will happen in this novel! GREAT choice!! I'm adding it to my Goodreads TBR!!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on my own WOW!! : )
