Mailbox Monday and It's Monday...What Are You Reading?

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


Books that I won:

Death of a Valentine- M.C. Beaton
This one came courtesy of Kaye from Pudgy Penguin and she's the reason why I started to read this series, so it was fitting that I won this from her blog!






Books from friends in high places:

Brava Valentine and Very Valentine came to me from a person who has a lot of pull with the big wig publishers!! I am over the moon to get these copies for review! Thanks friend!





Books from Publishers:

Lumby Lines - Thanks to Caitlin at FSB Media. I picked this book up a while ago at my library and never got the chance to read it so I'm beyond thrilled to get a review copy!
Nestled in the pages of The Lumby Lines you will read about a quaint little town in the Northwest that its quirky residents are proud to call home. With charming shops lining its one main thoroughfare, the town of Lumny is home to the oldest apple tree in the country and the smallest bank in the state. And though it's a fictional town, readers travel there through this book and the entire series.
