Monday Mailbox

This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Moonglow Sisters by Lori Wilde came from William Morrow Paperbacks and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I'm a sucker for sister books so this one about estranged sisters who come back together for a wedding, where secrets will be exposed, is like catnip for me.

We Have Everything Before Us by Esther Yin-Ling Spodek came from Gibson House Press and LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

What could possibly go wrong at a neighborhood bbq? Apparently quite a lot if the blurb on this book gives any indication, and I can't wait to dig in an experience it!

When Books Went to War by Molly Guptill Manning came from me for myself.

I have long wanted this historical book about the books that helped soldiers in WWII with moments of boredom or nervous anticipation either before the fighting commenced or as they recovered in hospital because it promises to be fascinating.

A Simple Country Murder by Blythe Baker came from me for myself.

A woman widowed in the London Blitz moves to the countryside only to discover that it's not as peaceful and simple as she imagined when she ends up helping investigate the suspicious death of a relative. Sounds like quite the fun cozy mystery, I think.

What You Wish For by Katherine Center came from St. Martin's Press.

A teacher has to stand up to her former crush, now much transformed in personality, in order to keep the integrity of the school where she teaches in this book that promises to be a wonderful read.

Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor came from me for myself.

Time travel, history, characters described as disaster magnets, and madcap adventures--what else could you possibly want? I can't wait!!!

A Christmas Party by Georgette Heyer came from me for myself.

It's always the season for Georgette Heyer, right? A closed door mystery during a holiday house party with suspects who all loathe the now dead host, this should be good fun.

I Can't Complain by Elinor Lipman came from HMH.

I do love Elinor Lipman so I am looking forward to this collection of personal essays.

Saving Miss Oliver's by Stephen Davenport came from me for myself.

I enjoy books set in schools so I am pleased to have this one about a boarding school in danger of closing and the new headmaster hired to keep that from happening, if only he can get everyone else on board with him.

If you want to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

  1. I Can’t Complain is awesome! She mentions the WNBA! I have owned When Books Went to War for eons. I need to get around to that one!


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
