Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Alone in the Wild by Kelley Armstrong

Suspenseful & exciting mystery series set in northern Canada wilderness

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books set to publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

Alone in the Wild

by Kelley Armstrong

Series: Rockton #5

Published by Minotaur Books

Publishing date: Feb 4, 2020

368 pages

Genre: Mystery, Police Procedural

Goodreads synopsis: Every season in Rockton seems to bring a new challenge. At least that’s what Detective Casey Duncan has felt since she decided to call this place home. Between all the secretive residents, the sometimes-hostile settlers outside, and the surrounding wilderness, there’s always something to worry about.

While on a much needed camping vacation with her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, Casey hears a baby crying in the woods. The sound leads them to a tragic scene: a woman buried under the snow, murdered, a baby still alive in her arms.

A town that doesn’t let anyone in under the age of eighteen, Rockton must take care of its youngest resident yet while solving another murder and finding out where the baby came from – and whether she’s better off where she is.


The mysteries, setting and characters are all great in this series. It’s one of my favorite series and I’m so looking forward to February when I hope to read this book.

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I can’t believe I’ve never started this series. I love this author and have read most of her other stuff. I need to remedy that before I get further behind. She seems to be a writing machine!


  2. I read the first two in this series – and I must get to the others because I just love her writing. Thank you for reminding me of these books:)).


    1. I have to admit I kept expecting a werewolf to jump out from behind a tree in the first book I read…lol. I do like this series very much!
