Waiting on Wednesday: Rosebush

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Sorry I've been gone. Hope you didn't miss me too much! I'm still working too much & not getting enough time to read, but I'm making due. Hope life is treating everyone well!

This week I am so stoked for the December 14th arrival of Rosebush by Michele Jaffe! It looks so mysterious & intriguing, but with a bit of a twist.

Instead of celebrating Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey Shore, Jane is in the hospital surrounded by teddy bears, trying to piece together what happened last night. One minute she was at a party, wearing fairy wings and cuddling with her boyfriend. The next, she was lying near-dead in a rosebush after a hit-and-run.

Everyone believes it was an accident, despite the phone threats Jane swears were real. But the truth is a thorny thing. As Jane's boyfriend, friends, and admirers come to visit, more memories surface not just from the party, but from deeper in her past . . . including the night her best friend Bonnie died.

With nearly everyone in her life a suspect now, Jane must unravel the mystery before her killer attacks again. Along the way, she's forced to examine the consequences of her life choices in this compulsively readable thriller.

From Goodreads

While this story sounds a bit jumbled & in depth, I am hoping that it lives up to the last line promise of a "compulsively readable thriller." It has serious potential to succeed if it is executed in an organized manner. While this is not her first novel, I believe this is a first-of-it's-kind of novel for the author. Let's hope she soars! What are you waiting on this week?
