is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

My Waiting On Wednesday this time is the German edition of A Beautiful Corpse. The second book in Christi Daugherty´s Harper McClain series. I am absolutely thrilled that the German publisher uses the original cover for it. And I hope they will continue doing so.

I started reading Christi Daugherty books when she was writing her Night School YA books and had a great time with them. When the author turned to write adult books, I was eager to get to know them as well. And the first Harper McClain thriller was a pure reading pleasure for me. So why should this one be any different?

Harper McClain series #2

For a woman being killed by someone who claims to love her is the most ordinary murder of all.
With its antebellum houses and ancient oak trees draped in a veil of Spanish moss, Savannah´s graceful downtown is famous around the world. When a woman is killed in the heart of that affluent district, the shock is felt throughout the city. But for crime reporter Harper McClain, this story is personal. The corpse has a familiar face. Only twenty-four-years old, Naomi Scott was just getting started. A law student, tending bar to make ends meet, she wanted to change the world. Instead, her life ended in the dead of night at the hands of an unseen gunman. There are no witnesses to the crime. The police have three suspects: Scott´s boyfriend, who has a criminal past he claims he´s put behind him, her boss, who stalked another young bartender two years ago, and the district attorney´s son, who Naomi dated until their relationship ended in acrimony. All three men claim to love her. Could one of them be her killer?
With the whole city demanding answers, Harper unravels a tangled story of obsession and jealousy. But the pressures on her go beyond murder. The newspaper is facing more layoffs. Her boss fears both their jobs are on the line. And Harper begins to realize that someone is watching her every move. Some familiar and very dangerous.
Someone who told her to run before it´s too late …

    1. I am curious how it will be. The first one was pretty good, so this one is hopefully good too or even better.

  2. I have another book by this author I need to read. I think this one sounds really good though.

    1. I became a fan of her when I read her Night School series. That one now is different, but the first one of the new series was a wonderful read.

  3. Oooh! This book sounds interesting! Great pick!

    Here’s my WoW!

  4. I love a Savannah setting. I haven't read this author, but I do enjoy these types of books. I will have to give her a try. I really like the cover. I'm glad the German publisher kept the original too in this case. Have a great day!

    1. The first book The Echo Killing was a great read, so this one hopefully will be one too. Thanks for stopping by.
