Waiting On Wednesday/Shadow Hill by Anastasia Hopcus

Wednesday, April 14, 2010
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases. 


I love this meme because I always find great new titles to my attention. Last week alone I pre-order about 10 different books.  I am featuring one of those today.



ISBN:978160684083
Author:Hopcus, Anastasia 
Publisher:Egmontusa 
Subject:Mysteries, Espionage, & Detective Stories 
Publication Date:July 2010

After her sister Athena's tragic death, it's obvious that grief-stricken Persephone "Phe" Archer no longer belongs in Los Angeles. Hoping to make sense of her sister's sudden demise and the cryptic dreams following it, Phe abandons her bubbly LA life to attend an uptight East Coast preparatory school in Shadow Hills, MA -- a school which her sister mysteriously mentioned in her last diary entry before she died.
 
Once there, Phe quickly realizes that something is deeply amiss in her new town. Not only does Shadow Hills' history boast an unexplained epidemic that decimated hundreds of its citizens in the 1700s, but its modern townies also seem eerily psychic, with the bizarre ability to bend metal. Even Zach -- the gorgeous stranger Phe meets and immediately begins to lust after -- seems as if he is hiding something serious. Phe is determined to get to the bottom of it. The longer she stays there, the more she suspects that her sister's untimely death and her own destiny are intricately linked to those who reside in Shadow Hills.

This just sounds like a great mix of mystery and romance with the paranormal thrown in for added excitement.
