Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on!
This week . . .
Series: Heirs of Watson Island #2
Age Group: Young Adult
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: October 27, 2015
Grieving the death of her godfather and haunted by her cousin Cassie’s betrayal, Barrie returns from a trip to San Francisco to find the Watson plantation besieged by reporters and ghost-hunters. Some are hoping to see the ancient spirit who sets the river on fire each night, while others are chasing rumors of a stolen shipment of Civil War gold that may be hidden at Colesworth Place. Chaos descends as Cassie hires a team of archeologists to excavate beneath the mansion ruins. But more is buried there than treasure.
A mysterious, magical man appears at Watson’s Landing, claiming the key to the Watson and Beaufort gifts and the Colesworth curse also lies beneath the mansion. With a mix of threats and promises, he engages Barrie and Cassie in a midnight visit, but the spell he conjurs has potentially deadly consequences.
While Barrie and dreamy Eight Beaufort struggle to make sense of the escalating danger and their growing feelings for each other, Barrie has to figure out not only whom to trust, but which gift is more reliable—Eight’s or her own. With millions of dollars and the fate of the founding families at stake, she must choose between what she feels deep in her heart and what will keep her loved ones safe.

Why I'm waiting on Persuasion this Wednesday: I just finished the first book in this series, Compulsion, and it was so good! I really loved the southern atmosphere, the romance, the creepy ghosts and mysteries throughout! I hoping this book delivers the way the first one did.
