Mailbox Monday #17

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

My mailbox has been looking like this one the past week. The poor mail carrier has to dust off the snow and ice just to get the mail inside! Hopefully everyone had some nice goodies in their mailbox last week and better weather than I am putting up with in the Midwest.

This week I got no books, Well I do not know.. except for the fact I need to pick something up at the mailbox tomorrow. There might be books in there for me. 1/4/15-1/10/15. Here are the books I got anyway.

Book Title: The Preacher's Daughter
Author: Beverly Lewis
Series: Annie's People #1
Publisher: Bethany House
Publish Date: 11/1/2005
Disclaimer: Download from Google Play for phone Free

A new series from The New York Times best-selling author of the Abram's Daughter's series. The Preacher's Daughter begins a remarkable journey of heartache and homespun delight - a series readers will find impossible to forget. Paradise, Pennsylvania, is likened to a little slice of heaven on earth...but for Annie Zook - the preacher's eldest daughter, it seems like a dead-end street.

She is expected to join the Amish church, but at 20 she is still deciding. Because of the strict rules that guide the Plain community, she must continually squelch her artistic passion, although it has become her solace.

In her signature style, with character depth and unexpected plot twists, beloved novelist Beverly Lewis once again opens the door to the world of the Amish.

Book Title: The Children Return: A Bruno, Chief of Police Novel
Author: Martian Walker
Publisher: Knopf
Publish Date: April 28, 2015
Received from Edelweiss For Review

The Dordogne's favorite chief of police is back in a heart-poundingly suspenseful case that finds his small town innocently targeted by a global terrorism network.

When an agent tracking domestic jihadists is found murdered near St. Denis, it's troubling enough for Bruno's beloved village. But when Sami--an autistic Muslim youth raised locally but thought lost to Islamic extremism in Afghanistan--comes home, things get far more complicated: abducted and exploited for his technological genius, Sami has used that same talent to gather a trove of al-Qaeda intel. Now the same jihadists who killed the agent aim to silence Sami, and as an international tribunal descends to process Sami's case, Bruno must scramble to track the terrorists down before they exact their own justice. Meanwhile, Bruno's juggling the affections of a sometime lover and the mixed, alluring signals of one of the high-ranking U.S. intelligence officers on Sami's case. Add to that a member of the tribunal with dangerous skeletons in his closet, and a high-profile Jewish philanthropist whose presence in St. Denis seems to be attracting attention from the jihadists. It's almost enough to make Bruno miss out on the village's wine harvest supper.

Book Title: The Promise of Palm Grove
Author: Shelley Sheppard Gray
Series: Amish Brides of Pinecraft #1
Received from Edelweiss for review
Publisher: Avon Inspire
Published Date: 1/27/15

A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she's pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love—the first volume in belovedNew York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray's new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series

Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she's happy because she's away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona's real joy is in being away from her fiancé.

Edmund is a good man and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her—and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kaufmann, Leona's faced with two vastly different futures.

Leona must decide: Should she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?
