Wilde Lake by Laura Lippman, February 14, 2017, William Morrow, a modern day twist of To Kill a Mockingbird. 

Book beginning:
When my brother was eighteen, he broke his arm in an accident that ended in another young man's death. I wish I could tell you that we mourned the boy who died, but we did not. He was the one with murder in his heart and, sure enough, death found him that night. Funny how that works. 

It happened at the lake. Wilde Lake....

Page 56:
Summer, usually our dullest season, flew after we met Noel. 

I plan to read the book late summer, when this takes place! By the way, it's on Stephen King's list of books to read this summer! See his list of new book recommendations.

  1. This looks great. And Stephen King has great lists, so it can't be bad. I'm reading Midwinter by Fiona Melrose.

  4. That book opening sounds very intriguing.

    It makes me want to know more about the book. Though it is only a few sentences, I like the way the situation is presented in such an odd way,

  9. For a minute I thought Lippman had a new book out...but your Wilde Lake just has a different cover from mine. Loved it! I definitely hope she publishes another one soon.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “AFTER ANNA”

    1. I know how confusing that can be to have books have different covers!

  10. Wow. I was not expecting the end of your book beginning - not mourning a kid who died, who also had murder in his heart. I'm intrigued.
