Mailbox Monday

I went shopping yesterday, and stopped in Barnes and Noble. I browsed their "Last Chance" table and selected the following reads:

A Field Of Darkness by Cornelia Read:

There are people who can be happy anywhere. I am not one of them. When the house on the next street went up in flames for the second night in a row, I wondered again what I was doing in Syracuse...

Madeline Dare would be the first to tell you her money is so old there's none left. A former socialite from an aristocratic family in decline, Maddie is a tough-talking, would-be journalist exiled to the rust belt of upstate New York. Her prospects for changing her dreary lifestyle seem dim - until a set of dog tags found at a decades-old murder site is linked to her family. Shocked into action, Maddie embarks on a search that takes her from the derelict smokestacks of Syracuse to the posh mansions of Long Island's Gold Coast. But instead of the warm refuge of home, this prodigal daughter soon uncovers the dark, sinister secrets that will violently challenge everything she believes in and holds dear.

The Infidelity Pact by Carrie Karasyov:

An ill-conceived pact between four L.A. housewives to each indulge in a year-long extramarital affair leads to freedom, revenge, social climbing, sex, drugs, and murder in the hilarious and biting solo debut by a coauthor of The Right Address and Wolves In Chic Clothing.

Cheap Diamonds by Norris Church Mailer:

Cherry Marshall seeks a life beyond the confines of her Arkansas world. "Sweet Valley was not the place for a girl with stars in her eyes, and I had stars big enough to blind me". Leaving behind all the comforts and problems of home, she sets out to enter the New York modeling world at the advanced age of twenty-two. At "five-twelve" with unusually white eyebrows, the platinum blond beauty may be a little too unique to fit in with the latest crop of all-American girls dominating the magazines of the era. Yet aided by her Southern smarts, her drive, and a touch of country naivete, Cherry finds herself in the right place at the right time - and with all the right people.

What was in YOUR mailbox?

Is A Field of Darkness the first book in that series? I have the second one (The Crazy School), but I need to get my hands of the first one first!
