It’s no secret that Magnolia’s editor-in-chief has a deep love for domestic thrillers and the Pacific Northwest. When she came across Melissa Woods’ pitch during October’s #PitDark event, she jumped at the chance of getting her hands on this story. With luscious writing and a captivating story, we couldn’t pass up the chance at adding Melissa, and her book, to the Magnolia family. Set in the quiet town of Pine Ridge, Washington, mysticism and magic add captivating layers to the mystery of a man’s murder. But as the story unravels, and the main character, Memphis, works hard to get to the truth of the murder, she discovers that she, and her baby, are both next on the killer’s list. Found during #PitDark, Melissa Woods’ The Weaver will be for fans of Big Little Lies and The Death of Mrs. Westaway.
