Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week is Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday.
Here is the Goodreads synopsis -
Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he's pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren't enough, now he's depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool. But as much as Hartley wouldn't mind seeing him squirm, she knows he's innocent, and she's the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school's resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer's next victim.
When I read this synopsis I can't help but think of the movie Heathers in terms of that dark humour it has. It think this book will have that same dark humour. I enjoy a good murder mystery and this one sounds like it has plenty of suspects to keep me guessing. The cover is also pretty eye catching. I love the girl's eyes.
Expected release date - October 11th 2011.
