Mailbox Monday is kindly hosted each week by Marcia at the Printed Page. Anyone can play along. Just leave a link to your MM at Marcia's blog and visit listed links to see what others received in the mail. It's always fun to see what books are making the rounds of mailboxes around the world. Caveat: reading MM can cause your TBR/wish list to grow exponentially. I think I could cover the great wall of China with my list! Here's what's new:
It had to be you was sent to me by Stacybuckeye. Thanks Stacy, this one looks like a lot of fun. From the back cover:
"The Windy City isn't quite ready for Phoebe Somerville-the trendy outrageous and curvacious New York knowckout who has just inherited the Chicago Stars football team. And Phoebe is definitely not prepared for the Stars' head coach Dan Calebro-an Alabama born former gridiron legend and blond barbarian.
Suddenly there's more than just a championship at stake. Because passion's the name of this game- and two stubborn people are playing for keeps! Sounds like somebody's going to butt heads !
Blue Heaven was sent to me just for taking a survey at Minotaur Press. This looks like a book my hubby might read. From the back cover:
"A twelve year old girl and her younger brother are on the run in the Idaho woods, pursued by four men they have just watched commit murder- four men who know exactly who William and Annie are. And where there mother lives.
" Chaos is coming to the lovely, seemingly tranquil town of Three Pines, just over the Canadian border. It begins to show its face one morning when a murdered man is found lying on the old pine floor of the beloved bistro and antiques store run by Olivier and his partner, Gabri. No one has ever seen the man before- or admits to having seen him-until a mysterious cabin, filled with priceless treasures, is uncovered deep in the woods. clearly the hermit must have lived there and died thee, and someone has been bringing him fresh groceries- in exchange for what? And just how did Olivier make such a spectacular success of his antiques business?
Chief Inspector Gamache and his team are called in, and much as they personally like the man who has hosted so many wonderful meals, they must ask the uncomfortable questions. Meanwhile, the cabin yields up extraordinary pieces of evidence-from signed first editions of Charlotte's Web and Jane Eyre to a spider web with the word "WOE" woven in it- that will send Gamache to the remote Queen Charlotte Islands in search of the hermit's secrets, then back to Three Pines to confront the brutal truth."
I hope everyone has a good week and happy reading!
