Mailbox Monday

20 Mar

My mailbox looks a little like this one!Welcome to Mailbox Monday!

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books.

Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour, and this month, I’m hosting!

The link to take you to the Linky page is at the bottom of this page.

As for my mailbox:

Books for review:

Heart of Deception by M.L. Malcolm

I really enjoyed Heart of Lies when I read it last year, so I asked to be on the TLC Books tour for the followup book, Heart of Deception, and I’m really looking forward to reading it!

A man of many contradictions, Leo Hoffman is a Hungarian national with a French passport, a wealthy businessman with no visible means of support, and a devoted father who hasn’t seen his daughter in years. He is also a spy.
Recruited by the Allies to help lay the groundwork for their invasion of North Africa, Leo intends to engage in as little espionage as possible—just enough to earn his American citizenship so he can get to New York and reunite with his daughter, Maddy. But while Leo dodges death in France and Morocco, Maddy is learning shocking truths about her father’s mysterious past—haunting knowledge that will compel her down her own dangerous path of deception and discovery.

Your turn

I can’t embed the Linky on this page, since I have a WordPress.com blog. I’m thinking about trying another host, probably Dreamhost. Any feedback is appreciated!

    The book looks good. When I first looked at it, I thought it was something else. After reading the synopsis though, I have no idea what I was thinking.

    Can’t wait to see what you think of the book. It’s the first I’ve heard of it.

    The Heart of Deception has been a tour which still upsets me; I didn’t like the book, and didn’t give it a terribly positive review, and I would never have hurt the author’s feelings. But, I’m afraid I did to some extent. I’m glad you liked it, and are on tour for the second; it’s good for her to have positive feedback.

    I saw this was on tour this month and read some positive reviews. I haven’t read Heart of Lies yet so I suppose I should start there.

    I don’t know why my link shows up like that. I made sure to cut and paste the link. Hmm – maybe I didn’t double check the Name going in. I’ll be extra careful next time.
    I love that cover and the book sounds interesting -set in a unique time period.
    Thanks for hosting in March.

    I haven’t read either one of those. They do look good, though.

    Heart of Deception sounds like a fun read–I don’t often read books like this, so it would be a nice change of pace. I had a great week for acquisitions last week. Stop for a look at the goodies on my shelf.

    I love that cover. I have such a love hate relationship with WordPress.com. Curious to hear what you decide to do, I know a few people who are making the switch right now. Your blog is lovely though!

    Cheers!
