Mailbox Monday ~ September 28th

SnowyEgretMailboxWelcome to Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia of To Be Continued, a place where readers share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.

Not much reading, writing, or listening last week. September is almost over and I’m wondering where the month went.

New Arrivals


The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach by Pam Jenoff and a totebag, a win from TLC Tours.
Young Adelia Monteforte flees fascist Italy for America, where she is whisked away to the shore by her well-meaning aunt and uncle. Here, she meets and falls for Charlie Connally, the eldest of the four Irish-Catholic boys next door. But all hopes for a future together are soon throttled by the war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home.

The Traitor by Sydney Horler from Poisoned Pen Press.
This new edition of The Traitor gives contemporary readers a long overdue chance to rediscover an early thriller that is plotted with dash and verve – a novel that helps to explain the author’s phenomenal popularity in his own time.


Feature and GiveawayLittleWomanBlue

Little Woman in Blue by Jeannine Atkins

Little Woman in Blue is a fictionalized account of a real-life rivalry between two sisters who crave wealth, fame, and travel at a time when women are expected to be content with a humble home life.

Based on May Alcott’s letters and diaries, as well as memoirs written by her neighbors, Little Woman in Blue puts May at the center of the story she might have told about sisterhood and rivalry in an extraordinary family.

Enter on or before October 3rd. US addresses only.

    Jenoff’s book is a good one, and that tote bag is cool. Not that I need more bags…at all!
