Waiting on Wednesday: The Secrets of Lily Graves

The Secrets of Lily Graves
Author: Sarah Strohmeyer
Publisher: Blazer + Bray
Expected Publication: May 13, 2014

With the intrigue of Pretty Little Liars and plenty of romance, bestselling author Sarah Strohmeyer weaves a story of secrets and lies—set in a funeral parlor.
Growing up in a house of female morticians, Lily Graves knows all about buried secrets. She knows that perfect senior-class president Erin Donohue isn’t what she seems. She knows why Erin’s ex-boyfriend, hot football player Matt Houser, broke up with her. And she also knows that, even though she says she and Matt are just friends, there is something brewing between them—something Erin definitely did not like.
But secrets, even ones that are long buried, have a way of returning to haunt their keeper.
So when Erin is found dead the day after attacking Lily in a jealous rage, Lily's and Matt’s safe little lives, and the lives of everyone in their town of Potsdam, begin to unravel. And their relationship—which grew from innocent after-school tutoring sessions to late-night clandestine rendezvous—makes them both suspects.
As her world crumbles around her, Lily must figure out the difference between truth and deception, genuine love and a web of lies. And she must do it quickly, before the killer claims another victim.
My Thoughts: I have never read Pretty Little Liars but I love the TV show, so the comparison caught my attention. I am really looking forward to reading this because it sounds like it's got just the right amount of mystery and romance, also I'm kind of in love with that cover!


  1. The synopsis of this one actually makes me think of older Alice Hoffman books, with the contemp feel but the little bit of eeriness and the eccentric family. Sounds like something I would love!

  2. I am very excited for this one too. Great pick

  3. I saw this on the epic reads cover reveals and I wanted it before I knew anything about it. I love the new cover designs for all of Sarah's books.
