"Waiting On" Wednesday: Finding Casey

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Finding Casey
By Jo-Ann Mapson
Publication Date: October 2

From Amazon:

Glory Vigil, newly married, unexpectedly pregnant at 41, is nesting in the home she and her husband, Joseph, have just moved to in Santa Fe, a house that unbeknownst to them is rumored to have a resident ghost. Their adopted daughter, Juniper, is home from college for Thanksgiving and in love for the very first time, quickly learning how a relationship changes everything. But Juniper has a tiny arrow lodged in her heart, a leftover shard from the day eight years earlier when her sister, Casey, disappeared—in a time before she’d ever met Glory and Joseph. When a fieldwork course takes Juniper to a pueblo only a few hours away, she finds herself right back in the past she thought she’d finally buried.

You always find the best books, many that I have not come across yet. This looks like a great read.

Rebecca said...

This sounds like it may be good. I'm interested to know if it goes into an actual ghost story.

Kelsey said...

Super interesting! It's a little unclear from the cover copy whose perspective the story is told from, but all characters sound interesting so maybe it will rotate around.

I sure hope the ghost in the house isn't Juniper's sister! That would be too sad.

Happy Wednesday!

Aleksandra Dee said...

Oh, so in the beginning of the summary I thought the book would be about the mother, then it turns out to be about Juniper. I think I could handle that! Thanks for the reveal!

I haven't heard of this book. But it seems interesting. I'm wary though, doesn't seem like my genre. Still a great pick :)

I think this is my favorite choice of yours so far! I love the southwest setting, the unconventional family dynamics and the mystery! I hope it ends up being a good read for you even with all the aspects it has going on.

Have a great rest of the week!!!

I love the sound of this story, but the cover does not do the synopsis justice(so boring).

Alyssa (Reader's Refuge) said...

This sounds like it'd be the best Lifetime movie EVER! Which also makes for good book drama. :) Nice pick!

That sounds like a pretty amazing book. Bring 40ish and pregnant sounds scary enough to me without any ghosts!
