It’s that time of the week when we sister up with Traveling Sisters, Christina and Kim and talk about books we can’t wait to read. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme that is hosted by Wishful Endings. Christina Recipe and a Read is on a mini-hiatus right now while she deals with families’ health.
The book I am talking about that Norma, Lindsay and I can’t wait for is Fallen Mountains by Kimi Cunningham Grant. Our advanced copies didn’t have the cover yet because we just couldn’t wait for it, so I have added the cover from Goodreads for you all to see.
“An intense and engaging portrait of characters driven by—and bound by—the secrets of their pasts . . . an absorbing mystery as well as a gracefully layered story of death and loss in a small town.” —Allen Eskens, USA Today bestselling author of The Life We Bury and The Shadows We Hide
When Transom Shultz goes missing shortly after returning to his sleepy hometown of Fallen Mountains, Pennsylvania, his secrets are not the only ones that threaten to emerge. Red, the sheriff, is haunted by the possibility that a crime Transom was involved in seventeen years earlier—a crime Red secretly helped cover up—may somehow be linked to his disappearance. Possum, the victim of that crime, wants revenge. Laney will do anything to keep Transom quiet about the careless mistake they made that could jeopardize her budding relationship. And Chase, once a close friend, reels from Transom’s betrayal of buying his family’s farm under false pretenses and ruthlessly logging it and leasing the mineral rights to Marcellus shale frackers. As the search for Transom Shultz heats up and the inhabitants’ dark and tangled histories unfold, each one must decide whether to live under the brutal weight of the past or try to move beyond it.
This one is a read now on NetGalley and Kim has downloaded it to join on in with us. If anyone is interested in reading this one with us let us know and we will start a group read for it.
