Can't Wait Wednesday (196)


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.



FROM GOODREADS:  Jude Lomax scrapes a living playing the trumpet on the neon streets of Baton Noir. Then she is invited to play at the funeral of the infamous cajou queen, Ivory Monette. Passing through the cemetery gates, Jude finds herself possessed by the murdered queen’s spirit. And Ivory won’t rest until she’s found the person responsible for her death.

If Jude wants to be rid of the vengeful spirit, she must take a journey deep into the dangerous underbelly of the city, from the swampy depths of the Black Bayou to the velvet opulence of the vampires’ secret jazz clubs. But as Jude untangles Ivory’s web of secrets, she is confronted with a few dark truths from her own past… 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  So first, let's just ignore the fact that there are snakes on this cover and focus on the fact that's it's my favorite color - Prince approved purple.  Now on to the content.  I love the fact that this takes place in Louisiana and seems to have a heavy voodoo undercurrent.  I'll have to get it on Kindle so I won't have to look at the cover much but it's definitely one I want to pick up.

WHAT BOOK CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR THIS WEEK???

  1. Oh yes please *WANTS* I lvoe that it looks like a neon sign in a club against a snake of all things. The Price approved purple works so well -- and then the blurb throws in a spirit posession. This is going to be such a wild ride, Barb!

  3. I haven't heard of this book, Barb. I had to laugh when you said you'd get it on Kindle so you don't have to look at the cover. Now if the cover had spiders on it I probably wouldn't even get it on Kindle...lol. Snakes don't bother me too much--especially since I live in Iowa! Enjoy the book!

    1. See spiders don't bother me. So Iowa has a lot of snakes? I guess I didn't realize that. Guess I can't go to Iowa.

    1. I wish I didn't. I took my Gpa to the country two years ago to visit old family graves on Memorial Day and there was a black snake lying there just waiting for me to walk across him. I actually managed not to scream or panic - it was a miracle.
