Mailbox Monday #22 - Valentine's Day Weekend

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.

Still snowing in much of the Northern and Eastern US, so the mail will be picked up whenever. On a positive note, all this bad weather gives us more time to sit inside and read where it's cozy and warm. Unless we can fly off to a Florida or California. Back to reality!

I hope everyone had a good week and a few new books in their mailbox.

Join in by adding your Mailbox Monday post to the linky below:

Description:
Set in the Bible Belt of Deep East Texas, Visiting the Sins is a darkly funny story about mothers and daughters, naked ambition, elusive redemption, and all the torment it's possible to inflict in the name of family.
Down through the decades, the lofty social aspirations of the feisty but perennially dissatisfied Wheeler women -- Pokey, the love-starved, pistol-packing matriarch; Rebanelle, the frosty former beauty queen turned church organist; and Curtis Jean, the backsliding gospel singer -- are exceeded only by their unfortunate taste in men and a seemingly boundless capacity for holding grudges. A legacy of feuding and scandal lurches from one generation to the next with tragic consequences that threaten to destroy everything the Wheeler women have sacrificed their souls to build.
