Waiting on Wednesday: Bitter Pill by Stacey Kade
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
Bitter Pill by Stacey Kade
Release Date: October 28, 2013
This is Stacey Kade's first book for adults. Many of you may be familiar with her Ghost and the Goth series and The Rules, which is the first book in her Project Paper Doll series. I've read the first two Ghost and the Goth books as well as The Rules and loved them all. I've already bought a copy of the last Ghost and the Goth book and I will be adding this book to my collection as soon as it is released.
You really can't go wrong with one of Stacey's books.
The truth is a bitter pill...
Rennie Harlow is having a bad year. She had a handsome husband, a good job, and a renovated condo in Chicago. Now, thanks to one "exotically beautiful" paralegal, she’s divorced, faking her way through a writing career, and living above her hypochondriac mother's garage back in Morrisville, the small town she couldn't leave fast enough at eighteen. On top of all of that, she just found Doc Hallacy, the local pharmacist, dead behind his counter. And the worst part is, he's the third body she’s stumbled across this year.
Jake Bristol has lived in Morrisville his whole life. A former bad boy turned sheriff, he doesn’t believe it’s just Rennie’s luck or timing that’s the problem. He thinks she’s too nosy for her own good. The last thing he needs is her messing around with his murder investigation so that she can freelance for the Morrisville Gazette. But as they both delve deeper into Doc's death, they find that things don't add up. This isn't a robbery gone wrong or the work of a desperate junkie. Someone has a secret they're killing to keep. The only question is—who's next?
