Mailbox Monday: Summer Fun
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.
A couple of fun looking, perfect-for-summer books came into my house last week:
An Irish Volunteer by Juliet Cardinal.
This fact-based historical novel tells the remarkable story of Joe Plunkett and Grace Gifford, an unlikely pair of lovers who joined forces during the 1916 Irish Revolution. Joe is a poet, a Catholic, and the son of a Count; Grace is a Dublin artist and a Protestant. Can they risk their lives and their love for their dreams of an independent Irish Republic?
A Batter of Life and Death by Ellie Alexander.
On the lighter side, here is the second mystery in this smart new cozy series of "Bakeshop Mysteries" set in Ashland, Oregon, following the clever debut, Meet Your Baker.
