Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 29/8/22

Another week goes by and it’s been alternating sunny and warm, and cold and rainy. Luckily my books all arrived on a sunny day!

T by Alan Fyfe (available 1st September) arrived thanks to Transit Lounge. Timothy uses and sells drugs, but after a friend dies he becomes close to Lori-Bird. But he moves between leaving and loving her while he struggles with addiction.

Moon Sugar by Angela Meyer (available 1st October) was also from Transit Lounge. Mila’s relationship was growing with Josh, but then he disappears in Europe. She and his best friend Kyle travel to Europe to piece together Josh’s last steps but there is one factor Mila hasn’t considered…

The Proxy Bride by Zoe Boccabella (available 7th September) finds Sophie and her nonna Gia clashing in the summer of 1984. Then Sophie finds out that Gia had an arranged marriage, coming to Australia on a bride ship. Over cooking, the story is added to little by little and gets more and more unexpected… Thanks to Harlequin for the copy.

Daughter of Calabria by Tania Blanchard arrived thanks to Simon & Schuster. Set in late 1930s Italy, Giulia lives with her family in a small farming village. She’d like something more exciting and as war looms, the village is in danger from the North. (Note that this book has been previously published with the title Echoes of War, this version is available from 7th September).

  1. Cold days? We haven’t had any of those in a very long time! I’m really getting sick of hot and humid – ready for fall!

    I don’t read a lot of romance, but I enjoyed Get a Life, Chloe Brown!

    Hope you enjoy this week’s reading, too!
