Ooh, today's Pre Pub book buzz pick is one that I am SUPER STOKED about. Yes, I have a twisted soul. Natalie Young's debut is already gaining traction in the UK and is due out here in the States on July 15. I came across it in an article from The Telegraph on the supposed "chick noir" trend. Not sure about the "title" but I definitely enjoy this dark trend in books of late and the article resulted in the addition of both Season to Taste and Before We Met to the must have list (You Should Have Known was already there and I've already read both Gone Girl and The Silent Wife.)
Anyway, here's a bit about Season to Taste by Natalie Young from Goodreads:
Lizzie Prain lives a quiet life in a cottage in Surrey. She likes to cook. She loves her dog. And she has been married to Jacob for far too long.
Jacob has not been seen for a few days. That's because Lizzie snapped last Monday and killed him. Over the course of the following month, with no other option at hand and no income, Lizzie will use her best skill--cooking--to dispose of Jacob. When she finds unexpected kinship with an isolated misfit, she will be tested: Will Lizzie confess or will her new friend be an unwitting accessory to her crime?
And you know what? For what might be the first time ever I actually much prefer the US cover over the UK. It makes me giggle!
