Mailbox Monday 14th May 2012



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 May 2012 is … Martha@Reviews by Martha’s Bookshelf.

So why not stop by, leave a link to your own Mailbox Monday post, oh! and don’t forget to leave a comment for Martha, after all, we all like to receive them!

This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!


Another good week for author review requests, with the arrival of ‘Skin Games: A crime drama’, by Adam Pepper.

‘Skin Games’, is something of genre switch from Adam’s usual style of urban fantasy horror and dark fiction writing, although the strength of the storyline and characterisations apparent in the synopsis certainly make this book, not one for the faint-hearted reader.



When a mafia princess falls for a two-bit hoodlum an unhappy don plays some rough games in order to separate the two lovers.

Sean O’Donnell is a man who always keeps his word, especially to a lady.  His good-for-nothing old man left his mother flat.  When she gets ill, Sean assures her that he will never be like his father; if he makes a promise he will keep it, no matter what the cost.  When local mob boss Mario Torretta’s daughter Nicole falls for Sean, the Don is not pleased, and makes it known that Sean is not good enough for his princess.  However, Nicole is in love and begs Sean to stick by her.  Once Sean gives his word, no amount of pressure from the Don will weaken his resolve.  Sean will endure and persevere to keep his promise to Nicole, and to his mother.


This crime drama novel, was gifted as a request for me to read and leave my comments about, by its author, Adam Pepper and as such was free of charge.

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 will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

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'.
