Welcome to Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme where book lovers share the titles they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the past week. It is now being hosted at the Mailbox Monday blog.
Here’s what I added to the shelves over the past week:
With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin
Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she’s never met — even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence — he’s been trying to escape his infamous name for years.
As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other’s true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?
Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing — and true love. (publisher’s summary)
The Daughters of Delaford by Lucia Edgerton
It’s 1820, and the daughters of Elinor and Marianne, now 20 years old, are excited to begin their lives. Little did Allegra Brandon and Grace Ferrars know that they would become embroiled in the most important and scandalous event of their time, that being the return of Caroline of Brunswick, otherwise known as the Princess of Wales, to England after years of exile. As they witness Lady Caroline’s fight for her crown, they also chase their own dreams, sometimes finding things are not as they seem; Grace finds out the wealthy lord and landowner she married is not the man she thought he was; as Allegra’s very modern dream of a writing career meets with resistance as she becomes entwined with a mysterious stranger who not only steals her heart, but her reputation. Both women are forced to make choices that will not only affect themselves, but those they love as well. (publisher’s summary)
The Jane Austen Code by J.D. Gregory
When a murder is committed in the city of Southampton, graduate student Anna Lewis finds herself in the midst of a conspiracy, and it involves Jane Austen. At a young age, the beloved novelist stumbled upon secrets meant to be hidden and left clues within the pages of her works. It is now up to Anna to follow the trail and unravel a mystery centuries in the making. (publisher’s summary)
Only With You by Cecilia Gray
Emma has it all — looks, money, and luck. It’s not like she keeps it all to herself — she’s totally committed to helping those less fortunate. AKA, everyone. She invites her heartbroken friend to help with a weekend charity event with an eye to match make, but when that friend turns her eye toward the guy Emma wants for herself, how will she choose between friendship and her own feelings? (publisher’s summary)
