No One Else Can Have You
by Kathleen Hale
Publication Date: January 7, 2014

Small towns are nothing if not friendly. Friendship, Wisconsin (population: 688) is no different. Around here, everyone wears a smile. And no one ever locks their doors. Until, that is, high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is found murdered. Strung up like a scarecrow in the middle of a cornfield.

Unfortunately, Friendship’s police are more adept at looking for lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth’s best friend, Kippy Bushman, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth’s secret diary (which Ruth’s mother had asked her to read in order to redact any, you know, sex parts), sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship—where no one is a suspect—anyone could be the killer.

Strung up like a scarecrow? That’s horrible. I have to read it! I heard a couple good things about this book, so I’m pretty excited to read it. And I love that cover. It might be a book I buy JUST for the cover.

  1. I’m really looking forward to this one, too. I was lucky to get a copy of it from Edelweiss about a month or so ago. Now I just need to make time to read it…

    My WoW.
