Mailbox Monday ~ July 25th

SpringBirdsFenceMailbox-smlWelcome 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.


New Arrivals


The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak
After a painful divorce, Maisey Lazarow returns to Fairham, the small island off the North Carolina coast where she grew up. She goes there to heal—and to help her brother, Keith, a deeply troubled man who’s asked her to come home. But she refuses to stay in the family house. The last person she wants to see is the wealthy, controlling mother she escaped years ago.</em

The Secrets She Kept by Brenda Novak
The rich and powerful Josephine Lazarow, matriarch of Fairham Island, is dead. The police say it’s suicide, but Keith, her estranged son, doesn’t believe it.

The Velvet Hours by Alyson Richman
As Paris teeters on the edge of the German occupation, a young French woman closes the door to her late grandmother’s treasure-filled apartment, unsure if she’ll ever return.

    You have such great book presentations! Since most of my new books are e-books, that wouldn’t work; but I love looking at a stack of print books.

    Enjoy them all…and I’ve been wanting to read something by Brenda Novak.

    I’ve been seeing The Velvet Hours around, too. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

      Thanks! That’s a view of one of my wildflower gardens along my backyard deck. The gardens are one of the reasons I listen to so many book in audio.
