Mailbox Monday April 29




Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week(s) and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at Hooked by A Book (formerly The Printed Page) and is on tour for the month of April, and hosted by Mari at Mari Reads. 
  Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.


My F2F book club has received ARC's of Barbara Delinsky new book, Sweet Salt Air. One of our members entered a contest on ReadingGroupGuides.com. We are so excited to be reading this for our May selection. 

Enclosed with each book was the following little blurb  Charlotte and Nicole were once the best of friends, spending summers together in Nicole's family island house, but they have since grown apart. A successful travel writer, Charlotte lives on the road, while Nicole, a food blogger, lives in Philadelphia with her surgeon-husband, Julian. When Nicole returns to the island house in order to write a book about island food, she invites her old friend Charlotte for both sentimental and practical reasons. Outgoing and passionate, Charlotte has a gift for talking to people and making friends, and Nicole would like her help interviewing locals for her book. Missing a genuine connection, Charlotte agrees, But what both women don't know is that they are each holding a secret that may change their relationship forever. Are the bonds of friendship strong enough to weather past indiscretions and betrayals? Can love survive an honest mistake?

Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs was on the "Take ,They are Free" table at the same book club meeting.  Members share books that they have read and don't want to keep. Any that are not taken to become traveling books, are donated to our local library. This is a hardcover and one that has been on my TBR list for awhile. 



So I will stay busy and stay happy,
