Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

“In ‘Keystone Kops’–style scenes set around the morgue, a muddy mountain, and the hardware store, bones and books disappear and reappear…[On Spine of Death] is a quirky story for those who enjoy funny cozies.”—Library Journal

Bestselling author Tess Harrow and her teenage daughter Gertrude have decided to make Winthrop their home. Their cabin is fixed up and now they’re turning to the family hardware store that Tess inherited from her late grandfather into the town’s first independent bookstore.

But when renovations unearth bones from a cold case and send them toppling—literally—onto Tess’s head, the work comes to a grinding halt. With the whole town convinced that her grandfather was a serial killer, Tess has to call in a fellow horror author for reinforcements. Together, they’ll come up with a perfect story to make all the clues fit…and solve a mystery more than thirty years in the making.

Why I Can’t Wait!

I enjoyed the first book in the series, Buried in a Good Book, So I’m really looking forward to this next book.

  1. This sounds like a good book and fun series, Wendy. I found the first one on Scribd, so will read it before this one that I was approved for. I hope you enjoy it as much as Buried in a Good Book.

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and was really looking forward to this one. This is the first time I’ve read the blurb though and now I’m doubly excited as this sounds like such a great mystery.

  3. I was just saying I want to read Buried in a Good Book! Didn’t know the 2nd book would be out soon. The only drawback is that I don’t think they have audio versions so it makes it harder to fit them in.

  4. There are so many that have already been published for years that I want to read, so I tend not to look ahead too much at ones that haven’t been published yet, but there are some I definitely want to read – #4 in The Fairy Garden Mysteries (A Flicker of Doubt) and #3 in the Grilled Cheese Mysteries (Cheddar Late Than Dead). Both will be published next year. I also want to finish the Hannah Swensen series. I’m only on #16 and #29 is due out next year. So I have some catching up to do while reading other ones that interest me too. 🙂

    • I’m waiting for the next Grilled Cheese mystery too. I only have 3 cozy mystery series going, as they can get complicated to keep up with

  5. First of all, I just love the colors on that cover. They are really striking! And second, it also sounds like a great story. I love that it’s set around a morgue. Just sounds like a cosy spooky season read!
