Mailbox Monday ~ October 9th

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.

A few new books arrived last week. One is a Christmas story I’m looking forward to reading. The other was a surprise, but it’s a mystery, and I usually enjoy those.

We’re having an unseasonably warm Autumn. Many of my annuals are still blooming. It’s an unusual contrast to the see the leaves falling and the wildflowers all dying off and these pretty pots of brightly colored flowers. So it’s difficult for me to even think about Christmas even though I expect to see holiday decorations in the stores any day now.

New Arrivals

Last Christmas in Paris by Heather Webb and Hazel Gaynor from Wm Morrow Paperbacks.
New York Times bestselling author Hazel Gaynor has joined with Heather Webb to create this unforgettably romantic novel of the Great War.

Nail’s Crossing by Kris Lackey from Blackstone Audiobooks.
This debut mystery from a fresh voice in Southwestern fiction stakes out the common ground between Tony Hillerman, Elmore Leonard, and Cormac McCarthy.

    Enjoy your books. I watched part of a Facebook Live with the authors of Last Christmas in Paris and it seems like it might be really good, although Nail’s Crossing is more my usual fare.

      Mystery is my usual genre too. And I don’t usually read romance, but I requested Last Christmas in Paris because it is in letter form, historical fiction, and I try to read a Christmas novel every year to get into the spirit.
