Can't Wait Wednesday (17)

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa of Wishful Endings. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was created by Jill Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm interested in:

The House in Poplar Wood by K. E. Ormsbee

Release date: August 28th, 2019
Amazon / Book Depository / Indiebound

Summary (from goodreads): For as long as the Vickery twins can remember, they’ve only ever been able to leave the house together once a year, on Halloween. The rest of the year, Lee and his mother serve Memory, while Felix and his father assist Death. This is the Agreement.

But one Halloween, Gretchen Whipple smashes her way into their lives. Her bargain is simple: If the twins help her solve the murder of local girl Essie Hasting, she’ll help them break the Agreement. The more the three investigate, however, the more they realize that something’s gone terribly wrong in their town. Death is on the loose, and if history repeats itself, Essie’s might not be the last murder in Poplar Wood.

Why I'm excited: I freaking love Halloween, I liked Tash Hearts Tolstoy, I like mysteries, and I love middle grade. This also sounds really weird, and I also like weird. Overall, just seems like my kind of vibe.

What book are you excited about this week?

Peace and cookies,
