Mailbox Monday – September 10, 2012


According to the Mailbox Monday blog, “Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

Look what came in the mail! I didn’t even know it was coming, which made it all the more fun. :)


Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio – Review copy from the publisher.

Goodreads blurb: Seattle, 1933. Vera Ray kisses her three-year-old son, Daniel, goodnight and reluctantly leaves for work. She hates the nightshift, but it’s the only way she can earn enough to keep destitution at bay. In the morning—even though it’s the second of May—a heavy snow is falling. Vera rushes to wake Daniel, but his bed is empty. His teddy bear lies outside in the snow.

Seattle, present day. On the second of May, Seattle Times reporter, Claire Hanson, awakens to another late-season snowstorm. Assigned to cover this “blackberry winter” and its predecessor decades earlier, Claire learns of Daniel’s unsolved abduction and vows to unearth the truth—only to discover that she and Vera are linked in unexpected ways.

Any new books at your house this week?

      Anna – yes, it is! All of her books have had gorgeous covers so far – she’s been fortunate.

  6. Hi Carrie,

    This is a new author to me, but not for much longer.

    I loved the sound of this book so much, that I went off and checked out both her and all of her earlier books.

    It is fair to say I am hooked and when seen all together, the book covers are lovely as well!

    Thanks for introducing me to Sarah Jio, she is a great find. I hope that you enjoy the book and I shall look out for your review.

    Yvonne
