Hi, there! Welcome to my first bookish news of the day, a cover reveal hosted by YA Bound Book Tours! Our star? Rose Petal Graves, from Olivia Wildenstein!
Rose Petal Graves
by Olivia Wildenstein
Release Date: July 15th, 2016
I thought losing my mother would be the greatest shock of my life, but the greatest shock came after her death.
Founded two centuries ago by an aloof and powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly, so I rushed home.
Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.
As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, Cruz Vega, the new medical examiner, arrived. I should have felt relieved, but how could I? He was unnervingly handsome, glowed like a human firefly, and knew absolutely nothing about examining dead bodies.
But, he did know what killed my mother…or rather who.
A BLAST, RIGHT?! I love books with missing corpses. That probably got out wrong. Anyway, I still don’t have pre-order links, but I’ll update you guys on this matter asap. I mean, I need this book ❤ All I know is that it will be available in both ebook and paperback formats because we also get to see the paperback cover!
And bellow, you can read a bit about the author, Olivia 😀
Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.
When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).
Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
That’s it, thanks for reading! And thanks to YA Bound Book Tours for introducing me to this new baby 😀
