Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
And the book I am waiting for is…
Sundial by Catriona Ward
A twisty psychological horror novel from the author of The Last House on Needless Street, perfect for fans of The Push and Girl A.
All Rob has ever wanted was a normal life.
Nothing like her childhood, growing up in the lonely, wild Mojave Desert on her family’s property, Sundial. Surrounded by strange dogs, coyotes, and research assistants.
Rob almost got her wish. A husband, two daughters, the white picket fence, margaritas with the neighbors. But when a frightening accident in her home reveals a disturbing secret in her oldest daughter’s bedroom, Rob knows her luck has run out. What’s buried out at Sundial could never stay a secret forever, and Rob must risk one last trip out there to protect her future.
