Mailbox Monday

CardinalMailboxMailbox 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 January host is Lori’s Reading Corner.
I received a few print books for review last week.

For review from LibraryThing:

Lost Art of MixingThe Lost Art of Mixing
by Erica Bauermeister

Lillian and her restaurant have a way of drawing people together. There’s Al, the accountant who finds meaning in numbers and ritual; Chloe, a budding chef who hasn’t learned to trust after heartbreak; Finnegan, quiet and steady as a tree, who can disappear into the background despite his massive height; Louise, Al’s wife, whose anger simmers just below the boiling point; and Isabelle, whose memories are slowly slipping from her grasp. And there’s Lillian herself, whose life has taken a turn she didn’t expect. . . .
For review from Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam :

Fever TreeThe Fever Tree
by Jennifer McVeigh

Frances Irvine, left destitute in the wake of her father’s sudden death, has been forced to abandon her life of wealth and privilege in London and emigrate to the Southern Cape of Africa. 1880 South Africa is a country torn apart by greed. In this remote and inhospitable land she becomes entangled with two very different men—one driven by ambition, the other by his ideals. Only when the rumor of a smallpox epidemic takes her into the dark heart of the diamond mines does she see her path to happiness.
For review from Atria Books:

SeductionThe Seduction
by M.J. Rose

From the author of The Book of Lost Fragrances comes a haunting novel about a grieving woman who discovers the lost letters of novelist Victor Hugo, awakening a mystery that spans centuries.

What follows is an intricately plotted and atmospheric tale of suspense with a spellbinding ghost story at its heart, by one of America’s most gifted and imaginative novelists.

    Oh man, The Fever Tree sounds wonderful and I’m sure it is, since it’s an Amy Einhorn book.

    What a great mailbox. I am doing an Amy Einhorn reading challenge sponsored by Beth Fish Reads. I am by no means caught up, but almost always enjoy those that she publishes. Have a great reading week. Here is My Mailbox Monday


    • Leslie / Jan 21 2013 5:13 pm

      I’m participating in that challenge too. So far I’ve read five of the books.

    Enjoy your new books, Leslie. I was a bit surprised to see that these are all print books. 🙂

      Me too! Two weeks in a row and no new audio. I should have a few next week. 🙂
