Publication date is January 8th, 2013

The city of Ludlow is gripped by the hottest July on record. The asphalt is melting, the birds are dying, petty crime is on the rise, and someone in Hannah Wagnor’s peaceful suburban community is killing girls.

For Hannah, the summer is a complicated one. Her best friend Lillian died six months ago, and Hannah just wants her life to go back to normal. But how can things be normal when Lillian’s ghost is haunting her bedroom, pushing her to investigate the mysterious string of murders? Hannah’s just trying to understand why her friend self-destructed, and where she fits now that Lillian isn’t there to save her a place among the social elite. And she must stop thinking about Finny Boone, the big, enigmatic delinquent whose main hobbies seem to include petty larceny and surprising acts of kindness.

With the entire city in a panic, Hannah soon finds herself drawn into a world of ghost girls and horrifying secrets. She realizes that only by confronting the Valentine Killer will she be able move on with her life—and it’s up to her to put together the pieces before he strikes again.

It seems to be more of a mystery, but I've been led astray by marketing on a book before.  So here's hoping!


  1. I'm not real big into mysteries but I've seen this one showcased before on other blogs, so it appears to be good.

    1. Here's hoping its super. I've read a couple reviews on the contrary, but I'm still going to read it myself... probably the day it comes out.

  2. Ooo Paper Valentine! Great pick, it is already on my wishlist/TBR piles. Thanks for sharing! ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. :)
