Waiting on Wednesday: Grim Shadows by Jenn Bennett

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I was lucky enough to get an arc of Jenn Bennett's first Roaring Twenties book, Bitter Spirits (which came out January 7th) and I fell in love with it. The Roaring Twenties series is set in Prohibition-era San Francisco and the setting, paranormal elements, sly humor, and wonderful characters in Bitter Sprits made me more than eager to read the next book, Grim Shadows. Even if I wasn't already a fan of the series, Grim Shadows sounds just plain cool.

Author Interview Alert: Check back with Wit and Sin on Thursday, January 9th. I was lucky enough to interview Roaring Twenties author Jenn Bennett and the Q&A will up then :)

Book Description (from Goodreads):

It’s the Roaring Twenties in foggy San Francisco. Prohibition is on, inhibitions are low, and dark magic is rolling into town…

Archaeologist Lowe Magnusson is packing something everyone wants. The djed amulet, a priceless Egyptian artifact, will fetch Lowe a hefty paycheck from one of San Francisco’s wealthiest. But when the handsome Swede runs into his patron’s uptight daughter, what he once considered easy money becomes maddeningly complicated…

Cursed with deadly spirits as her constant companions, curator Hadley Bacall must keep calm to hold her dangerous specters at bay and prevent them from lashing out at anything—or anyone. Trouble is, Lowe is driving her crazy, but her father needs the artifact he’s transporting. While Hadley can feel the amulet’s power, she can’t fathom the destruction—or the desire—it’s about to stir up.
