Waiting on Wednesday - The Garden of Perpetual Slumber

- a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine 
that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



My pick this week is the first in Amanda Steven's new series, The Garden of Perpetual Slumber (Lucy November #1)The cover is beautiful (found at Deviantart, so I'm not sure if this is the final version) and the synopsis has me wanting to read this immediately. You can find more information about the series at amandastevens.com



Lucy November is an aspiring B-movie director in Austin, Texas. Until she catches her big break, she’ll have to keep her day job as corpse cosmetician and funeral videographer. It’s not so bad. The dress code is relaxed. It’s somewhat creative. She even has a talent for it. But Lucy also has a darker gift. A gift she’d prefer to shake off. At least until she finds herself a good set of earplugs. These corpses can talk! And because she’s their last stop before the afterlife, they’re giving her an earful.
When a sassy actress with a missing toe turns up on her table, Lucy is drawn back into a childhood kidnapping that’s haunted her for years. She wants to help the police. Especially the cute one. But even Lucy finds Detective Romero a little strange. There’s a reason she can’t stop thinking about him. He’s conducting his investigation...inside her head.

The cover drew my attention, and the description sounds great. I'll have to add this to my to-read list.

Amaaaaazing cover! And the description sounds unlike anything I've read. From the tone of it I hope it comes with a snarky sense of humor. Definitely goes on my TBR! Thanks for pointing it out :)
