Waiting on Wednesday 09/26/18
Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
To be honest I have not loved everything I’ve read by Cherie Priest, but when it comes to horror, she sure knows how to write a creepy and atmospheric novel. In fact, her book The Family Plot is one of my favorite haunted house stories, so while I know that not all her books will strike my fancy, I’m still excited to keep reading her work. The Toll sounds like one I’ll really like. Can you say creepy?
State Road 177 runs along the Suwannee River, between Fargo, Georgia, and the Okefenokee Swamp. Drive that route from east to west, and you’ll cross six bridges. Take it from west to east, and you might find seven.
But you’d better hope not.
Titus and Davina Bell leave their hotel in Fargo for a second honeymoon canoeing the Okefenokee Swamp. But shortly before they reach their destination, they draw up to a halt at the edge of a rickety bridge with old stone pilings, with room for only one car . . .
When, much later, a tow-truck arrives, the driver finds Titus lying in the middle of the road, but Davina is nowhere to be found.”
