Waiting on Wednesday (#3): Beastly Bones

'Waiting on' Wednesday is a weekly feature/meme created by Breaking the Spine. This is basically  for the books that we've been anticipating.

Expected publication date: September 22nd 2015
Synopsis (from Goodreads)
I’ve found very little about private detective R. F. Jackaby to be standard in the time I’ve known him. Working as his assistant tends to call for a somewhat flexible relationship with reality.

In 1892, New Fiddleham, New England, things are never quite what they seem, especially when Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer R. F. Jackaby are called upon to investigate the supernatural.

First, a vicious species of shape-shifters disguise themselves as a litter of kittens, and a day later, their owner is found murdered with a single mysterious puncture wound. Then in nearby Gad’s Valley, now home to the exiled New Fiddleham police detective Charlie Cane, dinosaur bones from a recent dig mysteriously go missing, and an unidentifiable beast starts attacking animals and people, leaving their mangled bodies behind. Charlie calls on Abigail for help, and soon Abigail and Jackaby are on the hunt for a thief, a monster, and a murderer.

The first book in this series (trilogy?) received a mixed reviews and I haven't really expected to like this book, but I immensely enjoyed this book! Also that cover, along with the first one, is gorgeous!


  1. This has an interesting concept. I really like the cover a lot.

  2. I have an arc of this to read before it releases. Trouble is, I need to read the first one, which at least I own, first. Doing an 8 week COYER challenge so hopefully I will be able to fit Jackaby in somewhere.

  3. I need to read the first one still. Great pick!
    Check out my WOW

  4. I need to read the first one ASAP. :) This one's cover is pretty. :)

  5. Haven't read Jackaby yet, but I am definitely intrigued by the blurb! Hope you enjoy this one and Happy Reading. Thanks for stopping by earlier!
