UPDATE:  Today’s Linky is hosted by Kathy @ Bermudaonion’s Weblog

This week I had 3 books in my mailbox.

The first one is a true story and it sounds SO good!! Check out the blurb below.

The second one is the third book in the Louise Golden series and I can’t wait to read it. I loved the first 2 books in the series and have been waiting for this one. It took a while to get to me.

The third is the first book in the Sweet Bites mystery series. I love this kind of book!

Bread & Butter: The Murders of Polly Frisch by Cindy Amrhein & Ellen Lea Bachorski
The true account of Polly Frisch from the town of Alabama, New York, who, in 1857, was arrested for the murder of her husband and daughters. The punishment for such a crime was the gallows. Would Polly be the first woman in Genesee County history to be hanged for murder?

Another Day in Paradise by Laurie Hanan
Dog nappings have doubled on O`ahu over the past year. Brazen thefts of beloved pets from their homes have the community on edge. A beautiful, mysterious Chinese actress is distraught when her Pomeranian is stolen. Mail carrier Louise Golden finds the missing pooch, only to learn the actress is suddenly gone, with her belongings. Dogs are disappearing. Street people are being abducted by aliens—or so claims Louise’s homeless friend, Frankie. Clues point in different directions. Nothing adds up. A masked man appears out of nowhere and warns Louise to mind her own business. What did he mean? Everyone is a suspect: her boyfriend who tells stories for a living, the ex lover who once betrayed her, the acting coach skilled in the art of deception, the shameless stalker in the yellow Tweety Bird van.

At the polo field, tempers flare. Someone’s bound to get hurt. Things heat up for Louise, as well, when a sexy Brazilian polo player befriends her. Is he truly a friend, or a rake intent on seducing vulnerable women? Can Louise even trust her own spiritual awakening to help her find a path to understanding—or is she faking it and running blindly to a dead end? What will she do when she comes face to face with her greatest fears?

Brownies & Betrayal by Heather Justesen
Pastry chef Tess Crawford thought moving from Chicago to quiet Silver Springs, Arizona would simplify her life. That was before she found the body of a woman with whom she had traded heated words the previous night, left her fingerprints on the murder weapon, and came under attack for trying to clear her name. When her cheating ex-fiance shows up, intent on convincing her to come back to work for him, Tess—armed with an extra batch of éclairs—decides to take control and solve the mystery herself, with the help of friends and frenemies alike.

But will that be enough to save her when she gets too close and the killer decides it’s safer to get her out of the way?

  6. Hi Vicki,

    I don’t generally read non fiction stories, but I like the sound of ‘Bread and Butter’, especially when the synopsis says that it took five trials to convict her, doesn’t sound much like a fair trial somehow, does it?

    I am also keen to know your thoughts about ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’. There are a lot of blogs who have the book up for review, however I haven’t come across any reviews of it yet.

    Have a good week,


  7. I really liked Thirteen Reasons Why. Portia’s book also looks intriguing. Enjoy all your new reads!

  8. I think I have Unbearable Lightness on my bookshelf somewhere. Thirteen Reasons Why sounds like a deep novel. Enjoy your reading week and thanks for visiting my blog.
