Mailbox Monday for 11/29/10


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia of The Printed Page and being hosted this month by Julie of Knitting and Sundries.


I got an ARC of The Metropolis Case by Mattew Gallaway for an upcoming TLC Book Tour.  This one sounds so good I may end up reading it early.


I bought The New Christmas Classics DVD from Wal-Mart for $5.  How could I pass that up?

I received for review Season of Seduction by Jennifer Haymore from The Book Tree.

Although the widowed Lady Rebecca has sworn off marriage, men are another matter. London's cold winter nights have her dreaming of warmer pursuits-like finding a lover to satisfy her hungry heart. Someone handsome, discreet, and most importantly as uninterested in marriage as she is. Someone like Jack Fulton.

A known adventurer and playboy, Jack seems like the perfect choice. There's just one problem: Jack isn't interested in an affair. He needs the beautiful, mysterious Lady Rebecca to be his wife. And he doesn't have much time to persuade her. A secret from Jack's past is about to surface, and by Christmas Day he'll be either married to Rebecca or dead.

I received for review A Very Simple Crime by Grant Jerkins from Berkley Trade.

A twisting debut novel of murder and dark family secrets from a riveting new voice in crime fiction.

A murdered woman. A grieving husband. And their son-a mentally handicapped adult with a history of violent outbursts. A very simple case. Or is it?

Leo Hewitt, an Assistant DA once blamed for setting free a notorious child-killer, is eager to redeem himself with this intimate and grisly crime. As he digs below the surface he discovers more than he ever anticipated-including an emotionally disturbed wife, a husband who'd do anything to escape his disastrous marriage, and an accused young man with no apparent means of defense. But with each shocking new revelation, Leo is only led deeper and deeper into the darkness-an inescapable trap of blood bonds and twisted family secrets.

Hey Ryan! Long time, no see!

The Metropolis Case I've never heard about, but judging by the cover (which I'd *never* do) and the blurb, it really does sound awesome!

Lucky you!
