Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on AFTERMATH by Kelley Armstrong

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is AFTERMATH by Kelley Armstrong.   This book grabbed my attention right away, both because I read some stellar advance reviews for it and because its topic is so relevant and timely.

 

AFTERMATH by Kelley Armstrong

Publication Date:   May 22, 2018

 

 

From Goodreads:

Three years after losing her brother Luka in a school shooting, Skye Gilchrist is moving home. But there’s no sympathy for Skye and her family because Luka wasn’t a victim; he was a shooter.

Jesse Mandal knows all too well that the scars of the past don’t heal easily. The shooting cost Jesse his brother and his best friend–Skye.

Ripped apart by tragedy, Jesse and Skye can’t resist reopening the mysteries of their past. But old wounds hide darker secrets. And the closer Skye and Jesse get to the truth of what happened that day, the closer they get to a new killer.

    Whew. It is sad that books about school shootings are coming out more and more, but I understand why. Her non-urban fantasy books have not hit the mark for me, so I’ll watch for reviews before I decide whether I’m going to read this one.

    This looks good. I have mixed feelings about books about bombings and shootings. They have to be done right. This one looks like it will be intense with emotions.

    Ooo… Kelley Armstrong! Though with not a werewolf in sight… This one sounds really intriguing, Suzanne – I’m looking forward to seeing how you get on with it.

      Same here. I’ve actually not read one of her books before so I’m really hoping that I enjoy this one so that I can go back and read some of her others.

    Oh wow, a new killer? That part really hooked me. And this might sound weird, but I’ve always really liked school shooting books. I guess because it’s an important topic? I don’t know…

    Adding to my own wish list!

      That part hooked me too. I’m especially intrigued by this one since the author is presenting it from a perspective that I hadn’t really given much thought to before.

    I heard wonders about Kelley Armstrong and I cannot believe I haven’t read a book by her yet! I promised I would read one this year! I hope this one is as good as it sounds!

      I hope I enjoy this one too. I keep hearing great things about her books but this will be my first time reading one. If I like it, I definitely plan to visit some of her others.
