Mailbox Monday – April 18

mmb-300x282Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

I’ve been so good about avoiding book sales this year and then I visit two this week plus an indie bookstore.  I think I did a pretty good job restraining myself considering, don’t you?  And I’ve already finished and loved the new Harlan Coben book.

Baggage by SG Redling (from Wunderkind Press)

Over the years, terrible things keep happening to Anna Ray on February 17. First, there was the childhood trauma she’s never been able to speak about. Then, to her horror, her husband killed himself on that date.
A year later and a thousand miles away, Anna tries to find solace in the fresh start of a new job in a new place.

Former special ops pilot Maya, home from the war, sees an unthinkable image captured by her nanny cam while she is at work: her two-year-old daughter playing with Maya’s husband, Joe—who had been brutally murdered two weeks earlier. The provocative question at the heart of the mystery: Can you believe everything you see with your own eyes, even when you desperately want to? To find the answer, Maya must finally come to terms with deep secrets and deceit in her own past before she can face the unbelievable truth about her husband—and herself.

  1. It sounds like those books needed a good home and you’re just doing a public service by providing one. Enjoy, Stacy!

  2. Isn’t Fool Me Once excellent? I think he has actually outdone himself with this one. And I read the Twelve Hawks series quite a few years ago. I thought it was pretty good. As for Moyes, I absolutely loved Me Before You and thought the sequel Me After You was also very good. But I haven’t read any of her others. I kinda want to but don’t know how to fit them in!
