Mailbox Monday: Bitter Cry, Perfect Meals, Tana French

Mailbox Monday! A show and tell for the books that came your way last week. I got three new books, what about you?

Bitter Cry by S. L. Stoner, a Sage Adair historical mystery. This is the eighth mystery in the series set in 1902 in Portland and the Pacific Northwest, featuring Sage Adair, a secret operative in the early days of organized labor.

From the back cover:
Night fog drives a young newsboy into a seedy saloon where his appearance catapults Sage Adair into a world of painful memories, child exploitation and frantic searches for missing loved ones.

In Search of the Perfect Meal: A Collection of the Best Food Writing of Roy Andries de Groot
, edited by Lorna Sass. I haven't come across de Groot before, but I love vintage food writing, and this sounds like my perfect cup of tea!

De Groot was a cookbook author, book writer, and gourmet in residence" on the Today Show. The book description says: "Essays describe the author's childhood, exotic foods, favorite restaurants, secrets of dining, wines and spirits."

The Trespasser
by Tana French. I've only read the first novel in Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad series, so it will be a long time before I get around to The Trespasser, the sixth book in the series. But I found a copuy on the Take One/Leave One shelf at the BnB we staued in on our New Englang vacation last week, so I left the book I finished and took this copy because it was so tempting. It inspires me to read The Likeness, the second book in the series.

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Martha of Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf.
