dragonlegendsAt Mailbox Monday we encourage participants to not only share the books they received, but to check out the books others have received.

Every Wednesday we will each share two books that caught our eye from that week’s Mailbox Monday.

We encourage you to share the books that caught your eye in the comments.

MARTHA:

Don’t Look for Me by Wendy Walker found at Words and Peace.

The greatest risk isn’t running away.

It’s running out of time.

The car abandoned miles from home.

The note found at a nearby hotel.

The shattered family that couldn’t be put back together.

They called it a “walk away.”

It happens all the time.

Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over.

But is that what really happened to Molly Clarke?

“This looks like a really good thriller.”

The True Story of Zippy Chippy: The Little Horse That Couldn’t by Artie Bennett, Dave Szalay (Illustrations) found at Library of Clean Reads.

A true story about the famed racehorse who lost every race but won everyone’s heart.

The bell rings and they’re off! Zippy the racehorse—descended from legends—is destined for glory, but when the other horses bolt from the gate . . . Zippy stands still. When people try to pet him . . . he bites their hats and escapes from his stall. What’s an owner to do? Keep on trying! After all, Zippy has become part of Felix’s family—and a close friend of his little daughter. And after 100 straight losses, Zippy shows everyone that—win, lose, or draw—it takes guts to compete and that you can lose and lose and still be a winner.

“I love horse stories and never heard of this sad, but loved, racehorse.”

SERENA:

Hello Summer by Mary Kay Andrews at Bookfan and BermudaOnion.

Conley Hawkins left her family’s small town newspaper, The Silver Bay Beacon, in the rearview mirror years ago. Now a star reporter for a big-city paper, Conley is exactly where she wants to be and is about to take a fancy new position in Washington, D.C. Or so she thinks.

For small town scandals…

When the new job goes up in smoke, Conley finds herself right back where she started, working for her sister, who is trying to keep The Silver Bay Beacon afloat—and she doesn’t exactly have warm feelings for Conley. Soon she is given the unenviable task of overseeing the local gossip column, “Hello, Summer.”

And big-time secrets.

Then Conley witnesses an accident that ends in the death of a local congressman—a beloved war hero with a shady past. The more she digs into the story, the more dangerous it gets. As an old heartbreaker causes trouble and a new flame ignites, it soon looks like their sleepy beach town is the most scandalous hotspot of the summer.

“I just love Mary Kay Andrews’ books. They are great escapes, and a summer book is just what I need to get out of the doldrums.”

Talking with Psychopaths and Savages Beyond Evil by Christopher Berry-Dee at Just Me Mrs. D.

Sunday Times bestselling author Christopher Berry-Dee is back with a companion volume that delves even deeper into the savage world of psychopaths and their hideous crimes.

Talking With Psychopaths and Savages was the UK’s bestselling true-crime title of 2017, and he is now the country’s No. 1 true-crime author.

Includes many of the author’s unique first-hand interviews and correspondence with convicted serial killers, proving that the world’s most monstrous killers may be much closer than we think . . .

“This sounds like ti would be very eye-opening.”
