Mailbox Monday … 12th December 2011

-.-

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the last week.

Be warned that Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
-.-
Mailbox Monday, is currently ‘on tour’ and being hosted by a different blogger each month.
Your host for the month of  December is Jenny Q @  ‘Let Them Read Books’
So why not stop by, leave a link to your own Mailbox Monday post, oh! and don’t forget to leave a comment for Jenny, after all, we all like to receive them!
-.-
Just another single book this week, although I did buy about half a dozen from the charity shop where I volunteer, however they are going to be leaving the house again very soon, when I give them to my father to read first.
My ‘keepsy’ book was another author request to read and review, which is fantastic and that it is from one of my favourite genres of ‘romantic mystery/suspense’, is even better.

‘A DANGEROUS HARBOR’ by R.P. Dahlke
‘Bleary-eyed and sleep deprived after a long overnighter into Mexico, solo sailor and SFPD police detective, Katrina Hunter, thinks the mermaid twenty yards behind her thirty-two foot Westsail is nothing more than a sailor’s hallucination But everything she knows about floaters convinces her to turn her boat around for another look.Now, alone and isolated in the Mexican port’s police station for six hours she’s convinced that reporting the body of a floater to authorities was a mistake. Even the arrival of a handsome, if somewhat dour, Mexican/Italian investigator does nothing to dispel her growing anxiety that she’s about to be charged with the murder.Chief Inspector, Raul Vignaroli, is as surprised by the attractive solo-sailor as he is to find that she’s a respected member of the San Francisco police force, and after some well-placed phone calls he’s sure that he’s found the perfect partner to help him solve a murder, if not the cure for his broken heart.Released, she’s free to go. But leaving the police station hits a snag when two policemen march in, dragging a listless prisoner between them. But before Katy can dodge them for the exit, the prisoner raises his head and a startling pair of aquamarine eyes meet hers.He straightens his back, wincing at the angle of his cuffed wrists. “What the… Whisper?”Suddenly, the sound of the ceiling fan is terribly loud. Blood pounds in her ears, her mouth goes dry, her palms are damp and her feet are nailed to the floor. In a knee jerk reaction, she hisses, “Don’t call me that!”’

-.-

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a copy of ‘A DANGEROUS HARBOR‘ was sent to me free of charge by its author R.P. (AKA Rebecca) Dahlke.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

-.-

Hope that you all got some great reading goodies and have a fantastic week everyone!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
