Waiting on Wednesday: Suspicion by Alexandra Monir

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

Suspicion by Alexandra Monir

Expected Release Date: December 9, 2014

Mysterious. Magnificent. Creepy. Welcome to Rockford Manor.

“There’s something hidden in the Maze.” Seventeen-year-old Imogen has never forgotten the last words her father said to her seven years ago, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family’s English country manor.

Haunted by her parents’ deaths, Imogen moves to New York City with her new guardians. But when a letter arrives with the news of her cousin’s untimely death, revealing that Imogen is now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily accepts her role as duchess.

All is not as it seems at Rockford, and Imogen quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind the mansion’s aristocratic exterior, hinting that the spate of deaths in her family were no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself–and Sebastian, the childhood friend she has secretly loved for years. Just what has Imogen walked into?

I’ve seen this one described as Rebecca with a twist, and since we just read Rebecca in my book club (and it was generally well received), this seems like a good pick for me while the other book is still fresh in my mind.  The cover is gorgeous, the description is pitch-perfect for a slightly creepy feeling, and the book has, I think, a great deal of promise. I can’t wait to read this one.

What are you waiting on this week?
