Waiting on Wednesday

Red Riding Hood

Waiting Until...
January 25, 2011

The body of a young girl is discovered in a field of wheat. Her flesh mutilated by telltale claw marks. The Wolf has broken the peace.

When Valerie learns that her sister has been killed by the legendary creature, she finds herself at the center of a dark mystery, one that has plagued her village for generations. It is revealed that the werewolf lives among them, and everyone in the village immediately becomes a suspect. Could her secret love Peter be behind the attacks on her town? Is it her betrothed, Henry? Or someone even closer to her?

As the men in the village hunt for the beast, Valerie turns to her grandmother for help. She gives Valerie a handmade red riding cloak, and guides her through the web of lies and deception that has held her town together for so long. Will Valerie discover the werewolf's identity before the town is ripped apart?

This is a dangerous new vision of a classic fairy tale, the happy ending could be hard to find.

So, this is the tie-in for the movie that's coming out. The movie has me intrigued, and I'm hoping it lives up to the hype. Curiosity has me wanting to read the book as well. Hopefully, it too will live up to the hype. ;)

I saw this at Chapters/Indigo the other day but sadly didn't go take a closer look! I didn't realize I was actually seeing it in stores early because I haven't looked too much into this book yet... this is probably my first time actually reading the plot description, lol. The movie trailer looks pretty cool though. :)

I sooo want to read this book, too. And see the movie. Love the cover...especially the axe in her hand. Okay is that morbid and weird or what?

OMG! I pre-ordered this book right after I saw the preview for the movie. I hope it is good!
