Gramps always said that when the crickets were quiet, something bad was coming. And the crickets have been as silent as the dead. It started with the murdered deer in the playground, a purple foxglove in its mouth. But in the dying boondock town of Emerald Cove, life goes on.

I work at Gramps’s diner, and the cakes—the entitled rich kids who vacation here—make our lives hell. My best friend, Alex Pace, is the one person who gets me, and I’m starting to have more-than-friend feelings for him—feelings I don’t want to have. But he’s changing. He’s almost like a stranger now, keeping secrets and picking fights with the cakes.

Then one of the cakes disappears.

When she turns up murdered, a foxglove in her mouth, a rumor goes around that Alex was the last person seen with her—and everyone but me believes it. Well, everyone except my worst enemy, Jenika Shaw. When Alex goes missing, it’s up to us to prove his innocence and uncover the true killer. But the truth will shatter everything I’ve ever known about myself—and Alex.

Why I’m Waiting

The Foxglove Killings seems like a really great thriller. I like how the protagonist’s love interest is the prime murder suspect, instead of them teaming up to solve the murders and falling in love in the process. The fact that there’s a socio-economic divide between the main characters and the rich kids that come to vacation in Emerald Cove should make things tense between the protagonist and the victim’s friends while she and her frenemy work to clear Alex’s name. Lastly, I can’t wait to discover the protagonist’s name as it’s not n the synopsis. LOL!
