Mailbox Monday - 1-5-2009

Mailbox Mondays is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page so drop by and see what everyone else got in their box last week!



I received Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee from Hachette Books
From the cover: Kim Sunee was abandoned in a Korean marketplace at the age of three and raised by adoptive parents in New Orleans. But by the age of twenty-two, her life was totally transformed-she found herself the companion of a French mogul, and mistress over his homes in Paris and Provence. Yet despite the glamourous trappings, Kim never felt quite at home. It was only in the kitchen where she encountered exotic ingredients and fed crowds of friends, that she felt she truly belonged. TRAIL OF CRUMBS is a compelling personal narrative of the search for hom pursued among the tastes, aromas, and sensuality of food across three continents. I can't wait to start reading this one!

The Valentine Edition by Robin Shope - I received this as an E-book from First Wild Card Tours. I reviewed Robin's book The Christmas Edition and loved it!
From Amazon: The last place in the world Jodi Williams wanted to live was Turtle Creek, Wisconsin, but when her stepdad refused to put in a good word for her at the Chicago paper, she had no other choice than to accept the first job offer that came her way. Josh Thomas was Turtle Creek's veterinarian, but he also happened to be single and quite handsome. His life was pretty peaceful until a pretty, young stranger came to his clinic with a dog that had been hit by a car. While his first reaction was to care for the injured animal, he couldn't help a few glances at this unique young woman. That day was one of quite a few new beginnings. Jodi came to the aid of an injured animal, earning her the respect of a handsome man, she started a new job as a reporter for The Turtle Creek Newspaper, and she gained the wrath of the vet's receptionist. Della had her sights set on Joshua, and she wasn't about to let anyone come between her and the man of her dreams.


Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine - Ben Tanzer
I won this from JKaye's Book Blog -Thanks JKaye!
From the cover: This is a story about relationships, between father and son, friends, and most importantly between two newly formed couples. Following the lives and thoughts of four people in their mid-twenties, already experienced in dating but starting to wonder if that one person is out there. Taking a look inside the thoughts and conversations on both sides of the fragile world of romance and pain, friendship and fear, and life in New York, Most Likely... is filled with culture, laughter, quasi-advice, and the idea of wanting everything but knowing nothing. As the characters seek advance, their confusion mounts, emotions break down and get rebuilt, and the reader is left to wonder if men and women will ever really learn how to love.

Thank you for stopping by the 'mailbox' this week. Did I just notice on your side bar that you're participating in 48 challenges? Gosh my 4 or 5 are pitiful. Good luck!

Anna and Avisannschild - I get to start Trail of Crumbs in the next few days! It sounds really good!

Ben - So cool of you to stop in! I will be posting a review on my blog after I read it!

Callista - I didn't know that getting books in the mail could be so much fun!

Wendi B-I had just been to Delavan, WI when I read The Christmas Edition - and it is that area that the book is set in - so that was a neat coincidence!

Marcia - OMG - don't count them... that brings up my anxiety level! The fun is seeing how many challenges you can make one book fit into! :D
