Teaser (from the 10% mark of the eARC):
Would I have done something different if I had know it would only last for less than a year? Or that a different location might well provide a different outcome? I can't answer that. Grief is a never-ending series of what-ifs.Southern Gothic by Dale Wiley. I received this eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Here is the description from Amazon:
Aspiring author Meredith Harper owns the hottest bookstore in Savannah.
Michael Black is her favorite writer—long thought dead—until he mysteriously approaches Meredith with a new manuscript, and a most unusual offer. Meredith can keep the manuscript to herself, or publish it under her own name.
Her decision results in a bestseller, but the novel contains a coded secret; one that will put her on trial for murder and in hiding from “the blood stalker,” proving too late that making a deal with the devil comes at a heavy price.
