Waiting on Wednesday- "Delia's Shadow" by Jaime Lee Moyer

Waiting on Wednesday is a blog meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming books.

This week's WoW selection is:

Delia's Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer
Publisher: Tor Books
Date: September 17, 2013
Pages: 336

It is the dawn of a new century in San Francisco and Delia Martin is a wealthy young woman whose life appears ideal. But a dark secret colors her life, for Delia’s most loyal companions are ghosts, as she has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with an ability to peer across to the other side.

Since the great quake rocked her city in 1906, Delia has been haunted by an avalanche of the dead clamoring for her help. Delia flees to the other side of the continent, hoping to gain some peace. After several years in New York, Delia believes she is free…until one determined specter appears and she realizes that she must return to the City by the Bay in order to put this tortured soul to rest.

It will not be easy, as the ghost is only one of the many victims of a serial killer who was never caught. A killer who after thirty years is killing again.

And who is now aware of Delia’s existence.

I love a good ghost story! And one with a serial killer? Even better.

A ghost story with a serial killer twist sounds interesting!

Rather Be Reading YA

I haven't read many ghost stories, but I do like books set just after San Francisco's earthquake.
