Waiting on Wednesday: Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released!

This week's upcoming book spotlight is:
Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw
Publication Date: July 25th, 2017

From Goodreads:

Strange Practice (Dr. Greta Helsing, #1)
"Meet Greta Helsing, fast-talking doctor to the undead. Keeping the supernatural community not-alive and well in London has been her family's specialty for generations.

Greta Helsing inherited the family's highly specialized, and highly peculiar, medical practice. In her consulting rooms, Dr. Helsing treats the undead for a host of ills - vocal strain in banshees, arthritis in barrow-wights, and entropy in mummies. Although barely making ends meet, this is just the quiet, supernatural-adjacent life Greta's been groomed for since childhood.

Until a sect of murderous monks emerges, killing human and undead Londoners alike. As terror takes hold of the city, Greta must use her unusual skills to stop the cult if she hopes to save her practice, and her life."

I'm not usually drawn to stories with 'find out who the killer who is' as the main plot unless it is in addition to some other interesting storylines. In this case,  being a doctor for the undead seems to fit that 'interesting storyline' bill pretty well, and I'm intrigued! I have no idea what to expect from this book, but the fact that it is such a weird storyline completely grabs me.

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?
