Mailbox Monday ~ November 28th

Mailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week.

Mailbox Monday is currently on tour, hosted by a different blog each month. The November host is Marcia, the founder of Mailbox Monday at the Mailbox Monday Blog.

For review from the publicist:

Wanna Get Lucky
by Deborah Coonts

A young woman plunges from a Las Vegas sightseeing helicopter, landing in the Pirate’s lagoon in front of the Treasure Island Hotel in the middle of the 8:30 Pirate Show. Almost everyone writes her off as another Vegas victim.

But Lucky O’Toole smells a rat. She’s head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, the newest, most opulent mega-casino and resort on the Strip, so she’s got a lot on her plate: the Adult Film industry’s annual awards banquet, a spouse-swapping convention, sex toy purveyors preying on the pocket-protector crowd attending ElectroniCon.

Lucky Stiff
by Deborah Coonts

Lucky O’Toole—Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip—thinks it’s just another night in Las Vegas. A tractor-trailer has spilled its load of a million honeybees, blocking not only the Strip but the entrance to her hotel…the District Attorney for Clark County—apparently the odd man out of a threesome on the twelfth floor—is hiding in the buff in one of the hotel’s laundry rooms…and Numbers Neidermeyer—one of Vegas’ less-than-savory oddsmakers—is arguing with Las Vegas’ ace private investigator, the Beautiful Jeremy Whitlock.

For review from the publisher:

by Lauren Groff

In the fields and forests of western New York State in the late 1960s, several dozen idealists set out to live off the land, founding what becomes a famous commune centered on the grounds of a decaying mansion called Arcadia House. Arcadia follows this lyrical, rollicking, tragic, and exquisite utopian dream from its hopeful start through its heyday and after.
How was your week?

    The Coonts books make me laugh. Can’t wait for the next in the series.

    Arcadia is one that I’m curious about. Hope you like it Leslie.

    That Arcadia cover is so beautiful! I haven’t heard of the book but it sounds nice.

    Happy reading.

    I hadn’t heard of any of these books before, Leslie. I hope you enjoy them. Arcadia sounds like a book I’d enjoy.

    Very colourful (and text-heavy) covers this week! I’ve also seen Arcadia in a lot of mailboxes this week. Hope you enjoy them all!

      I was thinking that too after I posted the covers.

    I have Arcadia too and Wanna Get Lucky is on my to-read list. Enjoy!
