This is Our Story 

Author: Ashley Elston

Synopsis from Goodreads:

No one knows what happened that morning at River Point. Five boys went hunting. Four came back. The boys won’t say who fired the shot that killed their friend; the evidence shows it could have been any one of them.

Kate Marino’s senior year internship at the District Attorney’s Office isn’t exactly glamorous—more like an excuse to leave school early that looks good on college applications. Then the DA hands her boss, Mr. Stone, the biggest case her small town of Belle Terre has ever seen. The River Point Boys are all anyone can talk about. Despite their damning toxicology reports the morning of the accident, the DA wants the boys’ case swept under the rug. He owes his political office to their powerful families.

Kate won’t let that happen. Digging up secrets without revealing her own is a dangerous line to walk; Kate has her own reasons for seeking justice for Grant. As she and Stone investigate—the ageing prosecutor relying on Kate to see and hear what he cannot—she realizes that nothing about the case—or the boys—is what it seems. Grant wasn’t who she thought he was, and neither is Stone’s prime suspect. As Kate gets dangerously close to the truth, it becomes clear that the early morning accident might not have been an accident at all—and if Kate doesn’t uncover the true killer, more than one life could be on the line…including her own.

Why I'm excited:
It's weird to me how many people are using antlers for a scary factor (True Detective, Hannibal, etc). I like it, don't get me wrong, it's just a weird trend. This sounds so good. I love a good mystery, and this one sound kind of like a YA Grisham, and I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for this one.

What are you waiting for on this Wednesday? Link me up!

  1. Omg I'm behind you on that antler theory. Although, I do love me some Hannibal! You've got me intrigued with this one :D

  2. This sounds really good, and the shadows on that cover give me the chills for some reason.

  3. Oh, this sounds good. I hope you get to read, and enjoy, it soon. Thanks for sharing, and happy Wednesday. :)
    Here's my WoW

  4. This sounds great - and I'm totally with you on the antlers thing. Our local pub was just refurbished and they've stuck glass and metal antlers and abstract deer heads everywhere. Wrong, just wrong.

  5. This sounds amazing! I love the idea of five boys going in, only four coming out and the others keeping it a secret. Spooky, chilling and amazing.

    My WoW post.

  6. I haven't heard of this one before.
    Here is my pick if you want to check it out: https://bookdustmagic.wordpress.com/2016/01/20/waiting-on-wendesday-2-summer-nights-at-the-moonlight-hotel-by-jane-costello/

  7. This isn't normally the sort of book I would go for, but it sounds really good! Thanks for putting it on my radar!

  8. You are so right about the antler trend. This is the first time I have actually read the blurb, even though I have seen the cover here and there, so I am glad you shared it. It sounds pretty good!


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
