Waiting on Wednesday: These Shallow Graves

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly
Pub. Date: October 27, 2015

Goodreads says, "Set in gilded age New York, These Shallow Graves follows the story of Josephine Montfort, an American aristocrat. Jo lives a life of old-money ease. Not much is expected of her other than to look good and marry well. But when her father dies due to an accidental gunshot, the gilding on Jo’s world starts to tarnish. With the help of a handsome and brash reporter, and a young medical student who moonlights in the city morgue, Jo uncovers the truth behind her father’s death and learns that if you’re going to bury the past, you’d better bury it deep."
First of all, it's Jennifer Donnelly. I absolutely adored her historical novels (A Northern Light and Revolution), so this is a must read for me. Plus, the Gilded Age in New York? YES! What do you guys think? Are you loving the cover as much as me?

  4. SO VERY EXCITED FOR THIS CHRISTINA!!! I'm mildly concerned that there will be a love triangle given the synopsis mentions two guys, but I'm hoping that doesn't turn out to be the case. Doesn't stop me from wanting to read this though, CAN'T WAIT! And yes, I absolutely adore that cover:)
