It was so hard to choose an upcoming book for this week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick, but today’s choice ultimately won out because of the fabulously creepy and beautiful cover, and because I am wholly intrigued by the premise. Unfortunately for us impatient types, this book will not debut until January 2013, but I have a feeling the wait may be worth it!

Rory Miller had one chance to fight back and she took it. Rory survived … and the serial killer who attacked her escaped. Now that the infamous Steven Nell is on the loose, Rory must enter the witness protection with her father and sister, Darcy, leaving their friends and family without so much as a goodbye.

Starting over in a new town with only each other is unimaginable for Rory and Darcy. They were inseparable as children, but now they can barely stand each other. As the sisters settle in to Juniper Landing, a picturesque vacation island, it seems like their new home may be just the fresh start they need. They fall in with a group of beautiful, carefree teens and spend their days surfing, partying on the beach, and hiking into endless sunsets. But just as they’re starting to feel safe again, one of their new friends goes missing. Is it a coincidence? Or is the nightmare beginning all over again?

So, whaddya think? Does Shadowlands sound like your type of read? Serial killers, witness protection, dueling siblings, and danger? Oh, be still, my heart!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
