Waiting on Wednesday #110: Quiet Neighbors by Catriona McPherson

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

This week my Waiting on Wednesday pick is Quiet Neighbors by Catriona McPherson. It's due out April 6, 2016 from Midnight Ink.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

It’s the oldest bookshop in a town full of bookshops; rambling and disordered, full of treasures if you look hard. Jude found one of the treasures when she visited last summer, the high point of a miserable vacation. Now, in the depths of winter, when she has to run away, Lowell’s chaotic bookshop in that backwater of a town is the safe place she runs to.

Jude needs a bolt-hole; Lowell needs an assistant and, when an affordable rental is thrown in too, life begins to look up. The gravedigger’s cottage isn’t perfect for a woman alone, but at least she has quiet neighbors.

Quiet, but not silent. The long dead and the books they left behind both have tales to tell and the dusty rooms of the bookshop are not the haven they seem to be. Lowell’s past and Jude’s present are a dangerous cocktail of secrets and lies and someone is coming to light the taper that could destroy everything.

Why am I waiting on it? I like books about bookstores and people who inhabit them. And I like a good mystery. This sounds like it will fulfill both requirements.

What book are you waiting on this week? Please leave it or a link in the comments so we can check it out.
