Mailbox Monday

I received one book in the mail this week, and it has an gorgeous cover. I know you can’t judge a book by its cover, but I still do on occasion.

India Black by Carol K. Carr

(Received from the author/publisher)

When Sir Archibald Latham of the War Office dies from a heart attack while visiting her brothel, Madam India Black is unexpectedly thrust into a deadly game between Russian and British agents who are seeking the military secrets Latham carried. Blackmailed into recovering the missing documents by the British spy known as French, India finds herself dodging Russian agents-and the attraction she starts to feel for the handsome conspirator.

Pre-order at Amazon, IndieBound, or The Book Depository.

Mailbox Monday is taking a blog tour. This monthโ€™s host is Lady Q of Let Them Read Books. Head over there to see what goodies others got in their boxes and to share your own loot.


  1. I received for review Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz from the author.

    Twenty-four-year-old Aidin, a wealthy socialite and self-proclaimed “club god,” lives a magazine life based on decadence and excess that includes drugs, sex, and gourmet food. It’s a life based on surfaces in a place where the surface is all that matters. His therapist later describes him as a materialistic drug addict bent on promiscuity with self-esteem and identity issues.One morning, after a night of heavy partying, Aidin awakes completely vacant of any sensation. He can’t feel temperature. He can’t feel pressure. He can’t feel anything. After a near-fatal stint in denial, he seeks the help of Dr. Paradies, a therapist whose methods are far from conventional. She provides him with a new addiction in the form of a life list–a litany of activities to accomplish. As Aidin completes his list, he discovers talents he never knew he possessed, such as the ability to quickly learn new languages, an IQ off the charts, and amazing physical stamina.With these new discoveries, he questions his doctor’s intentions. When Aidin digs for the truth, will he slip back into his addictive habits? Or is there truly a conspiracy underway, as he suspects? The answer forces him to make a life-altering decision.

  2. What a lovely cover. I received a cookbook, cuisinart handblender and a bread baking basket in the mail while I was gone. I also bought three books in Paris-which I will review-two are cookbooks in French and one is day trips from Paris.

    Thank you for your wishes of health. Being sick is fun with the kitties snuggled up next to you. Okay not that much fun when I can barely keep my head up to read.
