Mailbox Monday - March 7th

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week.  Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!
Besides now having it's own blog, Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia at The Printed Page, is currently on a blog tour! This month Laura de Leon at  I'm Booking It is hosting.  Stop on over and see what everyone else got this week.

I had a great assortment make it way through the snow to my bookcases this week:

The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady
by Elizabeth Stuckey-French

The Blurb: This lively, intricately plotted, laugh-out-loud funny, and surprisingly touching family drama combines the wit of Carl Hiaasen with the southern charm of Jill McCorkle.

Seventy-seven-year-old Marylou Ahearn is going to kill Dr. Wilson Spriggs come hell or high water. In 1953, he gave her a radioactive cocktail without her consent as part of a secret government study that had horrible consequences....
Come back later this week to learn more about this one and to enter a giveaway.

A Deadly Cliche
A Books by the Bay Mystery
by Ellery Adams

Ever since I met the adorable poodle Captain Haviland in Ellery Adam's first book in this series, A Killer Plot, I've been looking for the next adventure.  Berkley Crime publishers not only sent me an advance copy, but they're offering another for a giveaway, so check back this week for all the details.  Psst...I started this one last night, and it grabbed me right off.

 Gideon's Sword 
by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child


Lastly, I got a review copy of the first in a new series by that famous duo of  Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.  The Gideon series should delight the many fans of the Pendergast series who are sure to look into this one.  In our house, it was almost whisked away by the other mystery reader, so I know we'll have some sort of review to post in the not too distant future.

Tutu's TBR pile continues to grow.  What was in your mailbox this week?
