Impatiently Waiting! Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

Expected publish date:
January 28, 2014

Publisher's summary: In this sequel to the Gothic suspense sensation The Madman's Daughter, Juliet must confront what happened to her on the island and escape her haunting past.

Winter frost coats the outside of the Royal Botanical Gardens greenhouse where Juliet Moreau spends her days, but the steamy air inside reminds her of her father's island-and the secrets she left behind. Now back in London, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau's horrific legacy-though someone, or something, hasn't forgotten her.

As people close to her fall victim to a murderer whose macabre calling card is three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father's creations may have also escaped the island. She is determined to find the killer, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again.

As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a cure for her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer-Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.

With inspiration from Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this is a tantalizing mystery about the hidden natures of those we love and how far we'll go to save them from themselves.


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I LOVED THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER--and wow, that ending! I've got this one sitting on my Kindle, just waiting to be read. I hope it's at least as good as its predecessor!
