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…
The Resting Place by Camilla Sten
From the blurb:
The brilliantly chilling follow-up to this winter’s buzziest debut thriller, The Lost Village.
A spine-chilling, propulsive psychological suspense from international sensation Camilla Sten.
The medical term is prosopagnosia. The average person calls it face blindness—the inability to recognize a familiar person’s face, even the faces of those closest to you.
When Eleanor walked in on the scene of her capriciously cruel grandmother, Vivianne’s, murder, she came face to face with the killer—a maddening expression that means nothing to someone like her. With each passing day, her anxiety mounts. The dark feelings of having brushed by a killer, yet not know who could do this—or if they’d be back—overtakes both her dreams and her waking moments, thwarting her perception of reality.
Then a lawyer calls. Vivianne has left her a house—a looming estate tucked away in the Swedish woods. The place her grandfather died, suddenly. A place that has housed a dark past for over fifty years.
Eleanor. Her steadfast boyfriend, Sebastian. Her reckless aunt, Veronika. The lawyer. All will go to this house of secrets, looking for answers. But as they get closer to bringing the truth to light, they’ll wish they had never come to disturb what rests there.
A heart-thumping, relentless thriller that will shake you to your core, The Resting Place is an unforgettable novel of horror and suspense.
Expected Publication Date:March 29, 2022
Publisher: Minotaur Books
Genre: Fiction / Thrillers / Suspense

I have this as well! Can’t wait to read!
Interestingly enough, my literary agent has prosopagnosia and opened up about it publicly a while back. I shared the link with him as he might enjoy it. Thanks for sharing. Let me know if you want a new YA to read (freebie, of course.) Hope you are well!
What an awesome cover. I just finished Rock, Paper, Scissors today and one of the MCs has prosopagnosia. Interesting.
