In My Mail Box is hosted by The Story Siren and is an opportunity to share the books I get each week.
I received a two special free books this week. From Fredrik Stanton I got a signed copy of Great Negotiation, Agreements that Changed the Modern World. I have always loved history and it was almost my major in college. There are eight negotiations in the book. I was familiar with all but one. I had never hear of The Portsmouth Treat, 1905, so this is the one I started with.
The next one is a signed copy of The Flower Reader by Elizabeth Loupas. This one included a really nice letter, a post card and a signed numbered beautiful pressed flower book mark. The letter listed all the flowers in the bookmark and what each flower stood for. The Flower Reader is a historical mystery set in the early years of the reign of Mary Queen of Scots.
It must be my week for free books. I also got a copy of Death of a Kitchen Diva by Lee Hollis from Library Thing. This is the first book in a new cozy mystery series complete with “Seven Delectaable recipes from Hayley’s kitchen.” Haley Powell writes a food column and is the main character in the series.
From NetGalley I requested and received Ruined by Rumor by Alyssa Everett. This is a historical romance from Carina Press. Alyssa Everett is a newly published author.
I purchased Hotter on the Edge, an Anthology of Science Fiction Romance Novellas from Amazon. The three stories in the book are All That Glitters by Erin Kellison, To Buy a Wife KC Klein and Enslaved by Starlight Jeassa Slade. The price was right for this one. It was .99. Those .99 books get me every time. How can I be good and read only from my TBR pile when interesting sounding books are only .99?
