Waiting on Wednesday--Greenglass House, by Kate Milford

Kate Milford caught my interest with The Boneshaker, and utterly captivated me with The Broken Lands (my review), and very thoughtfully, has written a new book that sounds like it will appeal to me even more--Greenglass House, coming ages from now in August of 2014, which is a long way away, but still worth thinking about!

The publisher's description: 

"A rambling old inn, a strange map, an attic packed with treasures, squabbling guests, theft, friendship, and an unusual haunting mark this smart middle grade mystery in the tradition of the Mysterious Benedict Society books and Blue Balliet's Chasing Vermeer series.
It's wintertime at Greenglass House. The creaky smuggler's inn is always quiet during this season, and twelve-year-old Milo, the innkeepers' adopted son, plans to spend his holidays relaxing. But on the first icy night of vacation, out of nowhere, the guest bell rings. Then rings again. And again. Soon Milo's home is bursting with odd, secretive guests, each one bearing a strange story that is somehow connected to the rambling old house. As objects go missing and tempers flare, Milo and Meddy, the cook's daughter, must decipher clues and untangle the web of deepening mysteries to discover the truth about Greenglass House-and themselves."
I cannot wait to see what Kate Milford does with one of my favorite fictional things, the attic packed with treasures....

  1. I'm eagerly waiting for this one too. I will read anything Milford writes, but this has so many things I love in it I would read it no matter what. It is nice to know these things are in the hands of someone I know can write so well.

  2. I hope they don't change that cover; it's gorgeous. Who wouldn't want to know what's happening in that house?

  3. Oh my, that's all very appealing! I hope the cover art stays the same, too.

  4. I hadn't heard about this one before and it sounds great! Thanks for the suggestion. Please check out my WoW!   And take a look at our giveaway of Hostage Three by Nick Lake.

  5. I agree on the cover--I don't see how it could be much more appealing!

  6. An eccentric house (castle, hotel, dwelling of any sort) is always worth a look!
