Friday Finds -- 7/17

Friday Finds is a meme hosted by mizb at Should Be Reading.My find this week is The Widow's Season by Laura Brodie. I read a review over at S. Krishna's Books and thought this would be a fantastic read.

Here is the Barnes and Noble synopsis:
Sarah McConnell's husband had been dead for three months when she saw him in the grocery store.What does a woman do when she's thirty-nine, childless, and completely alone for the first time in her life? Does it mean she's crazy to think she sees her late husband beside a display of pumpkins? Or is it just what people do, a natural response to grief that will fade in time? That's what Sarah McConnell's friends told her, that it was natural, would last a season, and then fade away.But what if there was another answer? What if he was really there? They never found the body, after all. What if he is still here somehow, and about to walk back into her life?

What did you find this week?

Seriously, that's just... WOW. What a great synopsis. I don't typically read books in the mystery genre, but that one totally snagged my attention.

Thanks for posting the find.

Oh...mysterious! It made me think if that Sandra Bullock movie (Premonition) which if you haven't seen, you should go rent. It was surprisingly good.
