Waiting on Wednesday: The Girl Is Murder

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight books we can't wait for.

Okay, technically this book came out yesterday, but I'm counting it as my Waiting on Wednesday, because I've been waiting for SO LONG (aka since March) for it to come out. I haven't gotten it yet, so I'm still waiting . . .

The Girl is Murder
by Kathryn Miller Haines
352 pages, Roaring Brook Press

From Amazon:
It's the Fall of 1942 and Iris's world is rapidly changing. Her Pop is back from the war with a missing leg, limiting his ability to do the physically grueling part of his detective work. Iris is dying to help, especially when she discovers that one of Pop's cases involves a boy at her school. Now, instead of sitting at home watching Deanna Durbin movies, Iris is sneaking out of the house, double crossing her friends, and dancing at the Savoy till all hours of the night. There's certainly never a dull moment in the private eye business.

I was basically borderline obsessed with Nancy Drew growing up. I'm pretty sure I've read most, if not all, of the original books. So since this book has got a Nancy Drew vibe going on, you can count me in! Also, um, I LOVE THE COVER!

  5. Yes! Another mystery! I am pratically a Nancy Drew geek so this will satisfy my Nancy Drew appetite! I am so excited ! THANK YOU for stopping by WoW and following me! I'm following you too! :)

  6. I haven't heard of this book before but I always love a good mystery so will have to look into it.

  7. I'm a fan of the Nancy Drew vibe myself- have you read the Maisie Dobbs books? SO Good. This one sounds like one I would like as well :)
