Can't Wait Wednesday (38)

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.

The Lonely Dead by April Henry

Release date: January 29th, 2019
Amazon / Book Depository / Indiebound

Summary (from goodreads): A killer is on the loose, and only one girl has the power to find him. But in this genre-bending YA thriller, she must first manage to avoid becoming a target herself.

For Adele, the dead aren’t really dead. She can see them and even talk to them. But she’s spent years denying her gift. When she encounters her ex best friend Tori in a shallow grave in the woods and realizes that Tori is actually dead -- that gift turns into a curse. Without an alibi, Adele becomes the prime suspect in Tori’s murder. She must work with Tori’s ghost to find the real killer. But what if the killer finds Adele first?

Master mystery-write April Henry adds a chilling paranormal twist to this incredibly suspenseful young adult novel.

The part where I talk: April Henry can be a bit hit or miss for me, but I think suspense is something she's strong at, and I think her voice and writing style would lend itself well to this kind of book. Plus, I'm always a fan of this kind of thriller/paranormal crossover type thing.

How about you tell me some of your favourite mashed-up genre books this week?
