Mailbox Monday for 12/12/10

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at The Printed Page and is being hosted all this month by Lady Q at Let Them Read Books

On my trip to Barnes & Noble to buy my gift for the blogger Secret Santa I found Dashing Through the Snow by Mary Higgins Clark & Carol Higgins Clark in hardcover on the bargain table.  Since I had already read two of their book I had to get this one.  I've already read it and will have a review up this week.

I received a paperback of Love Me To Death by Allison Brennan, an ARC of The Death Instinct by Jed Rubenfeld, and a bound galley of Under the Mercy Tree by Heather Newton for upcoming TLC Book Tours.

I won an ARC of Guilt By Association by Marcia Clark from one of the BBAW giveaways.

You had a good week! I'll be interested to see what you think of Guilt By Association, because I've heard it's quite good.

I received for review The Job by Craig Davis from the author.

Joe B. enjoys the sweet life as a vice president at a huge conglomerate, Universal Whirligig. But along with the Big Boss' favor, he has also gained the notice of a bitter human resources manager, Luci Fernandez. Hateful of any success but her own, Luci manages to get him demoted to the mail room! A rollicking comedy of errors follows as Joe B. tries to figure out what's happened to him, and attempts to get a meeting with the Big Boss. Joe B.'s great expectations have taken a dickens of a twist. His family is forced to make a series of hard adjustments, and he gets only lame comforts from a string of the worst friends anyone could have. Will he finally track down the cause of his frustrations? Or will he only learn a lesson about what it is to be the boss, and that what is apparent is often only a shadow of a greater ongoing good? "The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to Have Happened Somewhere) is a modern parable of ancient troubles and truths.
