~Mailbox Monday~




When I got home from work today, I had 2 books waiting for me!

Remembering Sarah by Chris Mooney: (from paperbackswap.com)


With a blizzard closing in, Mike Sullivan defies his wife's anxious warnings and takes their six-year-old daughter Sarah sledding. Mike waits at the bottom of a precariously steep hill as stubbornly independent Sarah races up the slope with a friend. But she never comes down.


Mike now lives out every parent's worst nightmare. His daughter has vanished. His marriage is falling apart. And investigators are unable to pin their only suspect, a local defrocked priest, with any crime. But is the key to Sarah's disappearance hidden in the turmoil and despair that is burying Mike alive? Or is it in his family's troubled past? One person holds the terrifying secret.....




The Late, Lamented Molly Marx by Sally Koslow (Sent from Random House)




From Publishers Weekly: Molly Divine Marx is dead. No one is quite sure how—murder, suicide, tragic accident?—and even Molly's own recollection doesn't explain much. Narrating this charming novel from an afterlife limbo known as the Duration, Molly follows the investigation of her death while keeping tabs on the living she left behind. Nearly everyone is a suspect: Barry, Molly's philandering plastic surgeon husband; Kitty, her controlling mother-in-law; Luke, Molly's lover; and the cabal of wifely hopefuls who line up for a shot at Barry before Molly's casket is safely in the ground. Longtime magazine editor Koslow (Little Pink Slips) knows her way around expertly tuned phrasing, and Molly is a delightful gem of a heroine. Equal parts self-deprecating, wry and sassy, Molly is honest about her faults and easily forgiving of the others' as she reviews her life with a hearty dose of honesty and humor. Though the anticipated delicious revelation doesn't quite live up to expectations, the narrative's heavy dose of hilarity and heartbreak will win readers over.
