Mailbox Monday

It’s November! This is a busy month around our house, lots of birthdays and then getting ready for Christmas. I don’t put the tree up til after Thanksgiving, but we’ll probably put the outdoor lights up soon, while the weather’s still nice. Don’t worry, we won’t actually turn them on until December.

Anyway, here are a couple of books that found their way to my house this week. To check out everyone’s additions and add you own link, head to the Mailbox Monday Blog.

Winter’s Fairytale came for review from Carina via NetGalley. I do love Christmas romances.

A few weeks before Christmas and a sudden blanketing of snow has closed the roads and brought public transport grinding to a halt, stranding Izzy miles from home and in desperate need of rescuing.
That doesn’t mean she’s looking to bump into Rob and spend a cosy weekend holed up in his swanky flat watching London become a winter wonderland! Because Izzy and Rob have history…

Six months ago, they were standing in the vestry of a beautiful country church, while best man Rob delivered the news that every bride dreads on their big day.

But at the time of year when anything is possible, can Rob and Izzy let go of the past and let Christmas work its magic? Or will this be one holiday wish that Izzy lets walk right out of her life…

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg.
Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible--and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.

With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them...

I purchased Death in a White Tie one day because I wasn’t sure what I felt like reading and I always love Marsh. Turns out I haven’t actually started it yet, but I know I’ll get around to it sooner or later.
