Waiting on Wednesday ~ Under the Willows

April 22, 2020 Misc. 4

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Now called Can’t Wait Wednesday hosted by Wishful Endings. It’s where we display a book that we can’t wait to read because it sounds so good. 🙂

After her husband is killed by a drunk driver, Kelly Harris and her son TJ move into a sprawling Victorian house in Ohio that her husband inherited from his grandmother. Dealing with her overwhelming grief is a struggle as she adjusts to life in a small town. And, just as she’s beginning to feel more comfortable, life takes another unexpected turn.

The Alexa unit in her son’s bedroom starts to cry, and a little girl’s voice comes out of it asking for help.

At first Kelly is unnerved by the presence of the voice. After ruling out all the other likely possibilities, she begins to put the pieces together, and suspects the girl is a ghost. Unwilling to be uprooted from another home, she decides to find out what the child wants. Maybe she can help.

Kelly isn’t the only one interested in the voice. Detective Rob Porter is investigating the disappearance of a child named Marilee. As the two cross paths, Porter is taken aback when Kelly’s ghost mentions Marilee’s name. In fact, the ghost says “Marilee’s with me.”

Whether that means the child is a ghost as well is a question Rob and Kelly hope to answer.

Found this one on Netgalley from Acorn Publishing and it comes out in May. I thought it sounded like a good eery mystery.

    This does sound really good and I love the fact that it’s in my neighboring state. However, is it horrible that I see Ohio and think “oh no, they have over 10,000 COVID-19 cases.” Hope you love this one. Did you request it?

      Wow, didn’t know they had so many cases! Yes, I requested so we shall see if I get it or not. 🙂

    Just reading the description gave me chills a bit… I think that’s probably a sign I’d wuss out lol. But it does sound good!
