Mailbox Monday ~ December 12th

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 December host is Let Them Read Books.

More audio books this week, which is good because I’m still doing more listening than reading. I expect that to change once the winter weather arrives but so far it’s been mild here and outdoor activities are still pleasant.

Three audiobooks for review from the publisher:

D.C. Dead (A Stone Barrington Novel)
by Stuart Woods

After a shocking loss, Stone Barrington is at loose ends, unsure if he wants to stay in New York and continue his work as a partner at Woodman & Weld. It comes as a welcome relief when he’s summoned to Washington, D.C., by President Will Lee. The president has a special operation that calls for Stone’s unique skill set, and it’s a mission that will reunite him with his former partner in crime and in bed, Holly Barker.
The Devil’s Elixir (Templar #3)
by Raymond Khoury

Sean Reilly and Tess Chaykin, heroes of Raymond Khoury’s bestselling Templar thrillers, return in an edge-of-your-seat story that reaches from the present day back to 1800s Mexico-and possibly beyond.
In The Devil’s Elixir, Sean and Tess find themselves in a race-against the clock, against drug kingpins, and even against the DEA-to merge two divergent trails, one several hundred years old, the other as current as a heartbeat, which together may lead humanity to the brink of annihilation.

The Prosperous Heart
by Julia Cameron

In The Prosperous Heart, the author of the international bestseller The Artist’s Way, Julia Cameron presents a twelve-week program for using practical financial tools — in partnership with your creative heart and soul — to direct you to prosperity in all areas of your life. According to Cameron, true prosperity has very little to do with the amount of money we have in the bank.
For review from LibraryThing:

An Available Man
by Hilma Wolitzer

In this tender and funny novel, award-winning author Hilma Wolitzer mines the unpredictable fallout of suddenly becoming single later in life, and the chaos and joys of falling in love the second time around. When Edward Schuyler, a modest and bookish sixty-two-year-old science teacher, is widowed, he finds himself ambushed by female attention.

How was your week?:

    We’ve just about given up on the Stone Barrington series as every book seems the same but we both like Holly Barker character so this one goes on the list. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on that one.
