Mailbox Monday ~ April 3rd

Welcome 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.

Another good week for books . . . much nicer than finding bills in the mailbox!

New Arrivals

The Forbidden Garden by Ellen Herrick from by William Morrow Paperbacks
At the nursery she runs with her sisters on the New England coast, Sorrel Sparrow has honed her rare gift for nurturing plants and flowers. Now that reputation, and a stroke of good timing, lands Sorrel an unexpected opportunity: reviving a long-dormant Shakespearean garden on an English country estate.

Rigor Mortis by Richard F. Harris from Basic Books.
How Sloppy Science Creates Worthless Cures, Crushes Hope, and Wastes Billions

Ten Dead Comedians by Fred Van Lente from Quirk Books.
A darkly clever take on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None and other classics of the genre, Ten Dead Comedians is a marvel of literary ventriloquism, with hilarious comic monologues in the voice of every suspect. It’s also an ingeniously plotted puzzler with a twist you’ll never see coming!

The Breakdown by B.A. Paris from St. Martin’s Press.
Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside—the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. . .

    I think I’ve heard of B.A. Paris, but not the other 3. So many authors…

    I’m really excited about The Breakdown! I hope we both love it.

    Enjoy your books! I can’t decide if I want to try Ten Dead Comedians of not.

      What caught my eye on that one was that it’s a take on And Then There Were None, a favorite of mine.

    Looks like there will be a lot of reviews for The Breakdown. It is quite popular this week.

    ENJOY all of your books and your reading week.

    Love your display – you always have such pretty presentations of your books.
