Waiting on Wednesday [6]: As She Left It by Catriona McPherson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming books we are looking forward to being released!

This week pick is:


by Catriona McPherson
Expected Pub. Date: June 8th, 2013

Premise   
When she was twelve years old, Opal Jones escaped her mother's endless drinking. Now, returning to their small Leeds cottage after her mum's death, Opal feels like she's gone back in time. Nosey Mrs. Pickess is still polishing her windows to a sparkle. Fishbo, Opal's ancient music teacher, still plays trumpet with his band. And much to Opal's delight, her favorite neighbor, Margaret Reid, still keeps an eye on things from the walk in front of her house.

But a tragedy has struck Mote Street. Margaret's grandson, Craig, disappeared some ten years ago, and every day he's not found, shame and sorrow settle deeper into the neighborhood's forgotten corners. As the door she closed on her own dark past begins to open, Opal uncovers more secrets than she can bear about the people who were once her friends.






Why am I waiting? 

Actually, I just noticed that I got approved to access this title on NetGalley, so I'm just waiting for a moment of peace so I can get to this book (collage won't leave me alone, I swear!). The premise is really interesting, the cover is pretty intriguing and it's a genre I haven't read that much in the last couple of years, so I'm definitely looking forward to give it a try.
