Mailbox Monday!

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia of The Printed Page. What books came into your home last week?

Minotaur Books, in their latest "Beast in a Jiffy" mailing, sent me two new ARC's, both from authors I've never read. The first book is by Paul Dorion. I know you're saying, "Paul who?" But don't worry, the fine folks at Minotaur know that none of us have heard of him, and remind us that before The King of Lies, none of us had heard of John Hart either! The other book is by Nancy Martin, in a brand new start of a fun new series.

The Poacher's Son by Paul Doiron

Game Warden Mike Bowditch returns home one evening to find a cryptic message on his answering machine from his father, Jack, who he hasn't heard from in two years. The next morning Mike gets a call from the police: a beloved local cop has been killed and his father is their prime suspect. Coming to terms with his haunted past and desperate for answers, Mike and a retired warden pilot journey deep into the Maine wilderness to clear his father's name and find out why Jack is on the run. But the only way for Mike to save his father is to find the real killer before the killer finds him.


Sounds like a good one, doesn't it?


Our Lady of Immaculate Deception by Nancy Martin

Roxy Abruzzo, the grandniece of a Pittsburgh Mafia boss, is trying to go straight--so she can focus on her architectural-salvage business that, for the most part, she runs on the up and up. But old habits die hard, and Roxy's sticky fingers set off a chain reaction of murder and mayhem...with Roxy right in the middle.


I love the title of this book, it looks like its got lots of potential to be my next "Stephanie Plum" type series. I love mysteries with a sense of humor!

Thanks again to Andrew at Minotaur Books for these great mailbox surprises!!

I love discovering new authors and what a great way to expose authors a person might not know of.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of the books.

I can't wait to hear what you think of Our Lady... It's got tremendous potential with the name alone :-).

What's a "Beast in a Jiffy" mailing? How fun to find two new authors. Love that second title.

Marie said...

sounds like fun! I like "Beast in a Jiffy". I assume "jiffy" is the envelope? :-)

I found my way here via Tutu's Two Cents BBAW post. I added your blog to my feed reader. I'd say something more clever here, but I think my brain has passed it's limits for computer time. Must rest eyes soon...zzzzzzzzzzzzz...
