Mailbox Monday #295

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia at To Be Continued, formerly The Printed Page, has a permanent home at its own blog.

To check out what everyone has received over the last week, visit the blog and check out the links.  Leave yours too.

Also, each week, Leslie, Vicki, and I will share the Books that Caught Our Eye from everyone’s weekly links.

Here’s what I received:

1.  Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella from a friend.

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose, but then his big question involves a trip abroad—not a trip down the aisle. Completely crushed, Lottie reconnects with an old flame, and they decide to take drastic action. No dates, no moving in together, they’ll just get married . . . right now. Her sister, Fliss, thinks Lottie is making a terrible mistake, and will do anything to stop her. But Lottie is determined to say “I do,” for better, or for worse.

 

2.  Saving Grace by Jane Green, an unexpected surprise from Tandem Literary.

Grace and Ted Chapman are widely regarded as the perfect literary power couple. Ted is a successful novelist and Grace, his wife of twenty years, is beautiful, stylish, carefree, and a wonderful homemaker. But what no one sees, what is churning under the surface, is Ted’s rages. His mood swings. And the precarious house of cards that their lifestyle is built upon. When Ted’s longtime assistant and mainstay leaves, the house of cards begins to crumble and Grace, with dark secrets in her past, is most vulnerable. She finds herself in need of help but with no one to turn to…until the perfect new assistant shows up out of the blue.  To the rescue comes Beth, a competent young woman who can handle Ted and has the calm efficiency to weather the storms that threaten to engulf the Chapman household.

    Hi Serena,

    I have never read any Jane Green books, as I assumed that they were in similar vein to the likes of Sophie Kinsella, very chick-lit oriented!

    The premise for ‘Saving Grace’ however, has me completely hooked and I have already added ths one to my ‘Want To Read’ list, especially after I discovered one of the editions on Goodreads had a slightly longer synopsis, which makes the storyline even more sinister sounding!

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your new finds!

    I have Wedding Night on my shelves but am saving it for when I need some fun and froth (probably in February when it’s grayest).
