Mailbox Monday June 19

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.

Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. The Lil' Diva, Lil' Princess and I took their dad out to Olive Garden for lunch after church. Then we went to visit my father-in-law in rehab. Looks like two more weeks of physical therapy for him before he can go home.

Last week I posted my reviews of What the Bishop Saw and Annie's Recipe over at The Book Connection. I also received the following book for review:

It’s down to fathers and fatherhood.

Ben Bracken, ex-soldier, has just got out of Strangeways.

Not by the front door.

With him, he has his ‘insurance policy’ – a bag of evidence that will guarantee his freedom, provided he can keep it safe – and he has money, carefully looked after by a friend, Jack Brooker.

Rejected by the army, disowned by his father, and any hopes of parenthood long since shattered, Ben has no anchors in his life.

No one to keep him steady.

No one to stop his cause…

The plan: to wreak justice on the man who had put him in prison in the first place.

Terry ‘The Turn-Up’ Masters, a nasty piece of work, whose crime organisation is based in London.
But before Ben can get started on his mission, another matter is brought to his attention: Jack’s father has been murdered and he will not rest until the killers are found.

Suddenly, Ben finds himself drawn in to helping Jack in his quest for revenge.

In the process, he descends into the fold of Manchester’s most notorious crime organisation – the Berg – the very people he wants to bring down…

This action-packed and fast-paced story will keep you turning the pages. Manchester is vividly portrayed as Ben races around the city seeking vengeance.

Three other short books are on the way for virtual book tour reviews: a children's book and two books of poetry.

That's it from me. Hope you'll share your mailbox too. Have a great week!

Sounds like a nice father's day visit.
Robert Parker is a good suspense writer although I haven't read or listened to him in a few years.
Have a good week and Happy Reading!
