Mailbox Monday & Giveaway Winner

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).

Lori at Lori's Reading Corner is hosting in January.  Please visit her fun blog for giveaways, reviews, and lots more.

GIVEAWAY WINNERS: Three lucky readers each get one copy of On the Rocks: A Willa Cather and Edith Lewis Mystery by Sue Hallgarth, a historic, literary mystery set in 1929 on the Canadian island of Grand Manan.  On the Rocks is the first of what looks like a terrific new series.

Congratulations to the winners:

And thanks to the wonderful book publicist Mary Bisbee-Beek for my copy and the giveaway copies.  Mary will be in touch with the winners to arrange delivery.


I was inspired by the 2013 Vintage Mystery Challenge to pick up a short stack of pre-1960 mysteries when I was out by Booktique in Lake Oswego.  A couple of others caught my eye as well.

The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley's Game by Patricia Highsmith. Only the first was published before 1960.

Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier. Does this count as a mystery? I love the Penguin cover!

Old Mrs. Camelot by Emery Bonett. I've never heard of this book or author.

Too Much of Water by Bruce Hamilton. Same with this one.

Tempest-Tost by Robertson Davies. Not a mystery, but I have been meaning to read more of his books.

Washington by Meg Greenfield. I finally finished Personal History by Greenfield's former publisher and friend, Katharine Graham.

The Players Come Again (a Kate Fansler mystery) by Amanda Cross. I've read one of this series and liked it.

The CEO of the Sofa
by P. J. O'Rourke. He always makes me laugh.


  1. I have read Jamaica Inn several times. I do love the adventure and romance and she is such a good writer. Did you enjoy the novel?

  2. HL: I haven't read it yet! I just got it. I am looking forward to it.

  3. I read Jamaica Inn and loved it!

  4. Nice mailbox! The Mr. Ripley books really appeal to me.

  5. Thank you so much for the win.

    Great Mailbox too.

    ENJOY ALL your reads.
