Waiting On Wednesday

The Scent of Rain and Lightning by Nancy Pickard

As a child, Nellie Burton dreamt of a terrible tornado just one week before a giant twister struck their tiny Kansas town of Rose. Perhaps that's why now, twenty-two years later, Nellie's friend Laurie Napier turns to her when she has a disturbing dream of murder. When this unsettling vision also comes horribly true, the town that prides itself in being one of the safest places on earth is scared and shaken. Adding to the drama is the disappearance of Belle Lindstrom, Nellie and Laurie's dear friend. Long-buried truths erupt like the gas fires suddenly and mysteriously igniting in the countryside around Rose. Amid unbridled greed and murderous conspiracies, three best friends must revisit the past, drawing ever nearer to a present day killer hiding in plain sight. Haunting and powerful, this is Nancy Pickard's finest achievement to date: a gripping novel of family secrets, crime and redemption.
