Mailbox Monday - February 9

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

Guess what? It is snowing again. The kids are home again. The hubby is home again. Can I just say something? I am ready for spring! I love my family being home, but the kids have had only one full week of school since Christmas break ended. It is getting a bit crazy.

Good thing the mailman is still able to get through. Here's what he brought me. The first one is for a virtual book tour. The second is something I won.

Combining the best of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Rolvaag's Giants in the Earth, and Moberg's The Emigrants, Lindberg's saga spans nearly a millennium beginning with the last of the Crusades... nineteenth-century Norse immigrants to America...cultural acclimatization...struggle to maintain their faith in an increasingly hostile climate... A connecting thread throughout the saga...three interlocking golden Rings... (from the Forward by John Eidsmoe)

The owner of the Novel Idea Literary Agency is thrilled when former local boy and popular television show host Damian York returns to Inspiration Valley, North Carolina, to launch his new gardening book. But Lila is less than excited about the hubbub when she sees her mounting to-do list. Between planning York’s gala and sprucing up her yard for another event, she’s spread too thin—especially after she finds a skull buried in her flowerbeds.

As Lila’s macabre discovery leads to other secrets hidden in Inspiration Valley’s past, a member of the local garden club is found slumped over her prize roses—murdered. Now it’s up to Lila to dig through old mysteries and new clues to unearth a murderer before someone else is found pushing up daisies…

What did you receive this week?

Wow, I can't believe how much snow you're getting in such a short time. I hope this trend ends soon and the kids are back to full weeks at school! Enjoy your new books.

It sounds like you've had a ton of snow. It makes me feel guilty for the gorgeous weather we've been having. Stay warm and grab a book!

Snow again? Are you in the Northeast? Boston??

Yes...thank goodness the mailman can make it. :)

Spring will be here soon...I HOPE.

Have a good week.

Yeah, we got a lot of snow too here in Montreal but nowhere as much as you folks. Enjoy your books!

Thanks for stopping by, gang. Elizabeth, we are in Western Mass, about 80 miles away from Boston.

We have definitely had more than our share of snow this year. The snow was up to my kneecaps before this last storm. Today, the public works department removed our mailbox from its post today. Just another thing to make this winter seem way too long.

Thanks again, everyone. I appreciate the comments.

We haven't had snow since Christmas. This week it's been in the mid 50s and it feels like summer. Such weird weather. Have a great week.
