Waiting on Wednesday: 8/14/13

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

No One Else Can Have You

     Small towns are nothing if not friendly. Friendship, Wisconsin (population: 688) is no different. Around here, everyone wears a smile. And no one ever locks their doors. Until, that is, high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is found murdered. Strung up like a scarecrow in the middle of a cornfield.
     Unfortunately, Friendship’s police are more adept at looking for lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth’s best friend, Kippy Bushman, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth’s secret diary (which Ruth’s mother had asked her to read in order to redact any, you know, sex parts), sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship—where no one is a suspect—anyone could be the killer.

Expected Publication: January 7, 2014

Why I'm waiting: Recently I've wanted nothing more than a super great thriller. And this part of the blurb: " Until, that is, high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is found murdered. Strung up like a scarecrow in the middle of a cornfield." instantly caught my eye. And the fact that the person mainly looking for the killer is the best friend blows me away! Like super sleuth Nancy Drew! And also, I want to know the story behind the cover. Why does it look like an old school Christmas sweater and why does it have an animal who's been hung on it? So many questions!
