Mailbox Monday 5-20

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 May , and hosted by Abi at 4 The Love of Books
 Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This week only 1 title in my electronic mailbox and none in my regular mailbox. The title was offered "free" on Amazon by the author Jenn Brink. It's a dark cover, not sure about the story line. But it is the first in a series, and I am a pushover for a series.  The description on Amazon is:

Jessica Hart is new to Seattle, days away from the big three-o, and just months away from marrying the perfect man when her fiance  Jim Carozza, gets into a car with a creepy stranger who looks like a Vegas pit boss. Suddenly, her seemingly perfect life takes a bizarre turn.
Her big brother, Greg, tells her to go home. The police tell her to go home. Her inner voice even tells her to go home. Unfortunately, Jessica has never been the kind of girl to do as she’s told. Instead, she dives head first into trouble looking for answers but soon finds out that every answer leads to more trouble.
Before she knows it, her world has turned upside down. Jim is missing and he’s got secrets. Greg has moved in and he’s got secrets. Her new friend, smoking hot and mysteriously irresistible Eric Wolf, even has secrets.
Now, a crazed killer stalking Jessica wants something she doesn't have. Wolf wants something she knows she shouldn't give. And, the police, the FBI, the mob, and a bunch of intimidating mercenaries are watching her every move.
Greg thinks she needs to let the police handle things. Wolf thinks she needs to lay low. Her best friend thinks she needs to let Wolf seduce her. Jessica thinks she needs some retail therapy, a manicure, and a margarita.
Sounds like a dark and  intense read , but  she had me at "manicure and a margarita".  That's my kind of therapy.   Have you read Black Roses? 

I will probably be away from blog land this week. Our son is visiting from Phoenix. I'll try to pop in early in the mornings or late evenings....but not for long. 

Until next time
Stay Busy and Stay Happy


  1. I like the margarita and manicure too as it makes the book seem lighter than it sounds at first.

  2. Have a good reading week.

  3. The book sounds good.
    Hope your visit with your son is wonderful!!
    Here's My MM

  4. ENJOY the book and your visit.
