Waiting on Wednesday (78) BITTER SPIRITS by Jenn Bennett

Waiting on Wednesday copy

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is a fun way to share the books you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. I’m so late getting this post up today! But I’ve found a book that I’m dying to read, that’s the first in a new series, and is coming out fairly soon! Here’s what I’m waiting on:


Bitter Spirits (Roaring Twenties #1) by Jenn Bennett. Release date: January 7 2014 (Berkley). I’ve never read anything by Jenn Bennett before, but the fact that a) this is the first in a series and b) it takes place in the 20s and is about ghosts makes me excited to read it. Here’s what it’s about:

First in a new romance series: It’s the roaring twenties, and San Francisco is a hotbed of illegal boozing, raw lust, and black magic. The fog-covered Bay Area can be an intoxicating scene, particularly when you specialize in spirits…

Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown’s illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act.

Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who’s more comfortable with guns than ghosts—unfortunately for him, he’s the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida’s supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her…

On the hunt for the curseworker responsible for the hex, Aida and Winter become drunk on passion. And the closer they become, the more they realize they have ghosts of their own to exorcise…


Sounds great, yes? What are you waiting on this week?
