Small towns are nothing if not friendly. Friendship, Wisconsin (Population: 688) is no different. Around here, everyone wears a smile. And no one ever locks their doors. Until, that is, high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is found murdered. Strung up like a scarecrow in the middle of a cornfield.

Unfortunately, Friendship’s police are more adept at looking for lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth’s best friend, Kippy Bushman, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth’s secret diary (Which Ruth’s mother had asked her to read in order to redact any, you know, sex parts), sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship — where no one is a suspect — anyone could be the killer.

Marketed as a young adult version of the Coen brothers’ iconic crime dramedy Fargo, Kathleen Hale’s quirky contemporary thriller, No One Else Can Have You, sounds like the sort of book I would greatly enjoy. With one of the most adorable covers I’ve seen in recent memory and an inventive premise that immediately makes you sit up and take notice, No One Else Can Have You promises to be one of the most unique books I read next year. Is it 2014 yet?

    Holy shoot, this book sounds so creepy and good! When this cover was revealed, I was instantly attracted by the yarn-textured photograph/illustration! And then that dead moose. :O This one sounds like a book that I will like! I’m so excited for 2014, great pick, Jen!

    I absolutely adore this cover. Even though the book isn’t one I’d normally gravitate towards, I think the cover – and all the early buzz I’ve been hearing about it – will definitely make me pick it up sooner or later. Great pick, Jen!

    That cover is ridiculously chilling. At first glance you think you’re looking at a ridiculous Rachel Berry sweater. Then you notice that the moose is noosed. It takes on a whole new meaning. I definitely want to read this book. I’ve got the title and release date marked!

    I followed you cause your blog is ridiculously amazing and I love your title. See you around!

    Here’s my WoW should you feel like checking me out at my book blog Vicariously!

  11. Okay, this is going on my TBR wishlist. I love a good suspense mystery, and that being compared in any part to that great movie Fargo makes it downright awesome. Cute cover too.

    I saw this book on someone’s list last week, and it has to be one of the best covers ever. Especially if you live in Canada, like me, where I had more than my share of sweaters like that as a kid! Thanks for sharing.

  16. This sounds really fascinating! It vaguely reminds me of Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone in the sense that it takes place in a small town and a girl’s been murdered. I think I’m definitely going to have to check this one out.

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!
