Mailbox Monday

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. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

Two books came into my house last week:

Dead Float by Warren C. Easley.  This is the second in Easley's mystery series featuring lawyer and amateur sleuth Cal Claxton, following the series debut, Matter of Doubt.  The first book introduced Cal as a former LA prosecutor starting a small practice in Oregon wine country. In Dead Float, Cal finds himself tangled in a murder mystery while guiding a fishing trip down the Deschutes River Canyon.

This looks like a great summer read and an exciting new series from Poisoned Pen Press.

Kidding Ourselves: The Hidden Power of Self-Deception by Joseph T. Hallinan.  Hallinan makes brain science accessible as he uses dozens of examples to explain how and why self-deception influences our decisions and actions.  


  1. I bet Kidding Ourselves is interesting!

  2. Would love to read your comments on Dead Float!
