In My Mailbox #1

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s our opportunity to get a peek into what books everyone is receiving for review, borrowing from libraries, buying in bookshops and download onto eReaders.

I received two books this week – both of them are for reviews and I can’t wait to get started. Here are all the details you need to know about them.

The Case of the Missing Deed by Ellen Schwartz

Publisher: Tundra Books
Publication Date: September 2011
Number of Pages: 200 pages
ISBN: 978-0-88776-959-7
Category: Action & Adventure

The blurb:

Five cousins are looking forward to their annual vacation at their grandmother’s cottage. None of them knows that this may be their last such summer. A mining company has set its sights on the land and is determined to seize it. Grandma must produce the deed to prove that the property is really hers, but her memory is not what it used to be, and she can’t find it. The children suspect there may be clues to the deed’s whereabouts somewhere in the family’s cherished trove of recipes. But can they solve the mystery in time?

And the second one was sent by fiction author Barbara Forte.

The Secret of Lies by Barbara Forte

Publisher: Dog Ear Publishing, LLC
Publication Date: April 21, 2010
Number of Pages: 304 pages
ISBN: 978-1608444182
Category: Fiction

The blurb: 

Propelled by an insurmountable sense of desperation, Stevie Burke is recklessly abandoning home, husband, and outwardly contented life under cover of night; at last resigned to defeat in her long battle against the tortured memories of her past.

Days later, lost and floundering in a dreary motel room without plan or destination, it is a long ago song playing on the radio that gently tugs Stevie back through the dust of remembrance. 1957 – The last summer spent at the ancient house overlooking the North Atlantic. A season which had unfolded with abundant promise, but then spiraled horribly out of control – torn apart by a shattering tragedy that remains splintered upon her soul. And it is only now, when Stevie at last lifts her eyes to stare deep into the heart of her long sequestered memories, that the long held secrets of past and future are at last unveiled.

They both sound great – I can’t wait to take a look at them!

That’s what I got in my mail this week. What did you get? :) x
