Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 31/8/20

Happy Monday! The weather is attempting to get warmer and the flowers are starting to blossom. Which means a lot of sneezing…

Unfortunately I didn’t get to any bookshops last week, but the postie has been very, very kind with deliveries this week.

Flying the Nest by Rachael Johns (available 29th October) arrived thanks to Rachael and Harlequin. Aishling’s marriage is failing and nest parenting looks like the way it’s going to be. The nest is chaotic, but Ash’s weeks renovating a seaside cottage is the breath of fresh air she needs – maybe permanently. When tragedy forces her back to the city, Ash must decide between her family and her future.

The Mother Fault by Kate Mildenhall (available 2nd September) starts with Mim’s husband, who has gone missing. The Department can’t track him with their chip so they turn to Mim, threatening her children. Mim needs to find her husband but to do that, she needs to go on the run… Thanks to Simon & Schuster for the copy.

Perfect Tunes by Emily Gould (also available 2nd September) also arrived from Simon & Schuster. In the early days of the new century, Laura arrives in New York to try to record her first album. But she falls hard for a fellow musician and while their time together is short lived, it shapes Laura’s life. Fast forward fifteen years and Laura’s daughter wants to know about her father. It’s not something Laura wants to revisit, but when opportunity knocks for a second time will she resist?

I also received two of the new Heart series (formerly Cherish) from Mills & Boon. Changing His Plans by Jo McNally finds Nate’s quiet Catskills town threatened by Tiffany, an ambitious real estate developer. But when he starts to spend time with Tiffany, he finds that he rather likes her. Montana Wishes by Amy Vastine opens with Amanda finding out she isn’t really who she thought she was. To make matters worse, the man she secretly loves is engaged to someone else. Can she fight for what’s hers? In The Slow Burn by Caro Carson, Caden delivers Tana’s baby by the side of the road. It’s a unique bond and their friendship grows until Tana’s ex and the truth catch up with her. In Service of Love by Laurel Greeris about Maggie, a stubborn workaholic vet and Asher, a widower who has vowed to put his daughter before everyone else. Can service dogs bring the stubborn pair closer?

  1. Great looking assortment of books. I haven’t been to a bookstore for months but I do visit Amazon all the time. I prefer getting my books for my Kindle these days so that I don’t have to find shelf space for new ones. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. You received some great book mail this week. I’m looking forward to getting the Rachael Johns book when it is published. I always enjoy her work.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
