Waiting on Wednesday 08/03/22

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!

Murder at Haven’s Rock by Kelley Armstrong (February 21, 2023 by Minotaur Books)

I am beside myself with excitement! The author’s Rockton series may have officially ended, but I was glad to learn we haven’t seen the last of the characters yet. Murder at Haven’s Rock is what appears to be the first book of a new spinoff series.

“New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong’s Rockton Novels had one of the most unique towns in crime fiction. Murder at Haven’s Rock is a spinoff, a fresh start… with a few new dangers that threaten everything before it even begins.

Haven’s Rock, Yukon. Population: 0

Deep in the Yukon wilderness, a town is being built. A place for people to disappear, a fresh start from a life on the run. Haven’s Rock isn’t the first town of this kind, something detective Casey Duncan and her husband, Sheriff Eric Dalton, know first hand. They met in the original town of Rockton. But greed and deception led the couple to financing a new refuge for those in need. This time around, they get to decide which applicants are approved for residency.

There’s only one rule in Haven’s Rock: stay out of the forest. When two of the town’s construction crew members break it and go missing, Casey and Eric are called in ahead of schedule to track them down. When a body is discovered, well hidden with evidence of foul play, Casey and Eric must find out what happened to the dead woman, and locate the still missing man. The woman stumbled upon something she wasn’t supposed to see, and the longer Casey and Eric don’t know what happened, the more danger everyone is in.”

  1. I’m going to echo what Tammy said – or more to the point, do you think that without having read the original series it’s possible to jump in at this point? With it being a spin off??

  2. I read the first of the Rockton series and thoroughly enjoyed it – I need to finish it! But it’s always a bonus to discover there is more to come with a much-loved series. Thank you for sharing, Mogsy:).
