Mailbox Monday … July 30th 2012

MAILBOX MONDAY

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 July 2012 is …
So why not stop by, leave a link to your own Mailbox Monday post, oh! and don’t forget to leave a comment for Jennifer, 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!

I have quite a number of author review requests at this time, so I am finding that to avoid confusing myself too much, I am only effecting the download when I can see a slot in my reading schedule.

Hence, whilst authors may have sent me a download link some time ago, I am only counting them into my ‘mailbox‘ when I effect the download to my Kindle or PC.

‘THE ASSIGNMENT‘ by GERALDINE SOLON

“A story about love, betrayal and forgiveness.”

American travel journalist Sophie Matthews is searching for that elusive place called home. Working for Constar Communications has allowed her to see the world and experience different cultures, but the nomadic lifestyle has not enabled her to have much of a personal life.
As she approaches her fortieth birthday, Sophie’s priorities shift and she decides to quit her job to pursue a different dream–meeting a man, settling down, and starting a family.
Her boss, Greg Sullivan, has one request–that Sophie complete her last assignment featuring the life of artist/writer Marina Suarez.

During World War II, Marina’s entire village was captured by Japanese soldiers leaving Marina as the sole survivor. How she was able to survive the slaughter of her village and family remains a mystery.

Sophie is intrigued by the assignment, but hesitant to return to the Philippines, which left her with a broken heart ten years ago at the hands of Eric Santiago, the only man she has ever loved.

As fate would have it, Sophie soon finds herself in the busy streets of Manila and crosses paths with Eric Santiago once again. As Sophie tries to unravel the mystery of Marina’s life, she learns that Eric is the only one who can help her put the pieces together.

But when she discovers Marina’s deep, dark secret, little does Sophie know that it will change her life forever.

This will be the third book that I have read and reviewed on behalf of this very talented writer of contemporary women’s fiction. All three plots are very unique, yet all have the same basic message of ‘love’, ‘betrayal’ and ‘forgiveness’, which somehow binds them together and gives them that recognisable storyline format, which belongs to Geraldine.

-.-

This contemporary romantic fiction novel was gifted as a kindle download request for me to read and leave my comments about, by its author Geraldine Solon, 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'.
