Mailbox Monday- December 21

Mailbox Monday
is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week.


Christmas Cake by Lynne Hinton
This book came to me courtesy of Bonnie at RedLady's Reading Room. Bonnie has a heart of gold and I'm so thankful that she passed this one on to me.

Synopsis:
With the holiday season drawing near, the ladies of Hope Springs, North Carolina, are making plans for a cake cookbook—a project that will hopefully lift the spirits of a beloved member of their close-knit quartet. But Margaret Peele is downhearted and uninspired now that her cancer has returned. All she wants this Christmas is to visit her mother's Texas hometown . . . and to see their absent friend, pastor Charlotte Stewart, who left Hope Springs to run a battered women's shelter. So impulsive Beatrice Newgarden Witherspoon commandeers a very inappropriate—but comfortable—van to transport Margaret, Louise Fisher, and Jessie Jenkins across the country for a Lone Star State reunion with Charlotte. And over the course of a remarkable journey they will rediscover the greatest Christmas gift of all: eternal friendship

What came for you??

  1. A Christmas book! And just in time. :-)

    I am not expecting anything in the mail this week, but I'll probably stop by my mailbox towards the end of the week just in case. I'm hoping I get at least one book on Christmas Day, but I won't hold my breath. LOL
