Can't Wait Wednesdays: Summer Sons by Lee Mandelo


Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and gives us a chance to highlight books we are patiently waiting to fill up our TBRs with.

I love spooky season, not all the pumpkin spice items they now have that stock the grocery shelves, but the creepy books I can snuggle up with wearing a comfy sweater. Who am I kidding...it is still too warm here to wear a sweater in October.

Despite the sweltering 100 degrees weather here on the Oklahoma prairie, I am thinking about all the creepy and thrilling books I can stack my TBR list with, and Summer Sons is really close to the top of my list!


SUMMER SONS BY LEE MANDELO

Hardcover384 pages
Expected publication: September 28th, 2021 by Tordotcom

Andrew and Eddie did everything together, best friends bonded more deeply than brothers until Eddie left Andrew behind to start his graduate program at Vanderbilt. Six months later, only days before Andrew was to join him in Nashville, Eddie dies of an apparent suicide. He leaves Andrew a horrible inheritance: a roommate he doesn’t know, friends he never asked for, and a gruesome phantom with bleeding wrists that mutters of revenge.

As Andrew searches for the truth of Eddie’s death, he uncovers the lies and secrets left behind by the person he trusted most, discovering a family history soaked in blood and death. Whirling between the backstabbing academic world where Eddie spent his days and the circle of hot boys, fast cars, and hard drugs that ruled Eddie’s nights, the walls Andrew has built against the world begin to crumble, letting in the phantom that hungers for him.
