Mailbox Monday - June 28th to July 4th


Mailbox Monday is hosted by The Printed Page and is where we share all the books we received in the mail over the past week.


Following in the paw prints of 101 Salivations, Rachael Hale's 101 CATACLYSMS is a charming and playful tribute to the worlds most popular pet.

Celebrated animal portraitist Rachael Hale brings us the next installment in her adorable pet book repertoire with 101 CATACLYSMS: FOR THE LOVE OF CATS. This collection features 101 images of magnificent felines. Hales special rapport with animals has allowed her to capture the essence of her subjects. You will see it in the bald-faced cheekiness of Hilander, the sphynx; in the sassiness of Puffy, the Persian ball of fluff; and in the playfulness of Yabba Dabba Doo, the British shorthair.







From the bestselling author of The Learning Curve.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a large ego must be in want of a woman to cut him down to size…

Sharp, witty Jasmin Field has her own column in a national magazine and has just landed the coveted role of Elizabeth Bennett in a one-off fundraising adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Better yet, the play’s director, Hollywood heartthrob and Oscar-winner, Harry Noble, is every bit as obnoxious as she could have hoped. Which means a lot of material for her column. And a lot of fun in rehearsals.

And then disaster strikes. Jazz’s best friend abandons her for a man not worthy to buy her chocolate, her family starts to crumble before her eyes and her award-winning column hits the skids. Worse still, Harry Noble keeps staring at her.

As the lights dim, the audience hush, and Jazz awaits her cue, she realizes two very important things, one: she can’t remember her lines, and two: Harry Noble looks amazing in breeches…





A gorgeously written novel that marks the debut of an astonishing new voice in psychological suspense

As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.

Richly atmospheric, stunning in its complexity, and utterly convincing and surprising to the end, In the Woods is sure to enthrall fans of Mystic River and The Lovely Bones.
