Mailbox Monday February 13


It's Monday again! It was a crazy week here last week. I had my second interview which ran over an hour long. Not sure how it went. I thought it went okay but it's hard to say what they are looking for. There were many applicants so it will be awhile before I know anything. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes! They mean so much!

I did receive one book in my mailbox last week. I have not been requesting many books. I am trying to get caught up with the books I have here already, so I am being a bit more selective in what I request. This book I saw on another blog so when I had the chance to get my hands on a copy of it, I jumped.

This month's Mailbox Monday host is Kim at Metroreader. Thank you for hosting Kim!


The Rose of Winslow Street by Elizabeth Camden

Paperback: 342 pages
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers (January 1, 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0764208950
ISBN-13: 978-0764208959

The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago. Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers, Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.

As a decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man whose intentions and affections are less than certain.

  4. This is one I really want to read!! It was such a hard choice this time from Bethany House, but I ended up picking The Maid of Fairbourne Hall. I really wanted to read BOTH, though! ;)

  8. I've all but stopped accepting books for tour/review until I get the ones I already have read. I want to get to my challenge books so may not be getting any books for a while. Unless...I absolutely have to have it!
