Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
The Other Family
Wendy Corsi Staub
William Morrow Paperbacks, February 2022
Mystery, Psychological Thriller
From the publisher—
The watcher sees who you are…and knows what you did.
It’s the perfect home for the perfect family: pretty Nora Howell, her handsome husband, their two teenage daughters, and lovable dog. As California transplants making a fresh start in Brooklyn, they expected to live in a shoebox, but the brownstone has a huge kitchen, lots of light, and a backyard. The catch: its previous residents were victims of a grisly triple homicide that remains unsolved.
Soon, peculiar things begin happening. The pug is nosing around like a bloodhound. Nora unearths a long-hidden rusty box in the flowerbed. Oldest daughter Stacey, obsessed with the family murdered in their house, pokes into the bloody past and becomes convinced that a stranger is watching the house. Watching them.
She’s right. But one of the Howells will recognize his face. Because one of them has a secret that will blindside the others with a truth that lies shockingly close to home—and to this one’s terrifying history.
Why am I waiting so eagerly? The synopsis here made me think of one of the shows on the true crime tv channels for no good reason since all that programming is fact-based. Maybe a Lifetime movie? Wherever this feeling is coming from, I guess I’m getting a visual vibe, certainly not a bad thing. I just know that I’m being pulled in by what appears to be a complex, intriguing story and I am so there 😁, aren’t you?
