Waiting on Wednesday (6)

I sat and thought about which book I was simply dying to arrive in the store and there was no choice this week - Swoon by Nina Malkin. A colleague of mine wrote and told me that she'd just read it and it was simply amazing. So I went and looked it up.

Here's what it's about (from the cover):

Torn from her native New York City and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon, Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly dies in a fall from an old tree, and her spirit intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge. And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of Sin. She's intensely drawn to him—but not at all crazy about the havoc he's wreaking. Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy an even more potent—and irresistible—adversary, before the whole town succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him.

Look at that cover. Fabulous. And that line: Sin is coming...prepare to swoon.
Don't you just want this book RIGHT NOW? And from the first paragraph:
"...by the time I laid eyes on Sinclair Youngblood Powers - in the flesh, that is - I was already in love with him. Nothing could change that. Not even the fact that he was dead."

And even though you can see that I would be pacing around the room waiting and waiting and waiting I've actually been given an arc (oh thank you), started it this morning, and am putting almost everything aside to finish. Yes, it's that compulsive, that good, and most certainly worth the wait until its May publication date.
