In My Mailbox #18

Yesterdays post was made up of books I bought at Borders, today I'm posting books that I actually got in the mail or bought at stores other than Borders.

The first two I found at the dollar store of all places.  I love Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassin series and I'm excited to give this one a try:

Synopsis of Karma Girl:

The first “outrageously entertaining” (RACHEL GIBSON) Bigtime book from the author of Jinx.

After getting dumped by her crime-fighting fiance, reporter Carmen Cole starts exposing the country's most powerful heroes and villains. But when her life is threatened, she'll have to rely on the city's sexiest crime-buster to save her.

Synopsis of Hot Mama:

By day, Fiona Fine is a successful couture designer. By night, she’s Fiera, who can create and manipulate fire with her bare hands. Now, with two new ubervillains in town who are intent on raising hell, Fiona’s love life might just crash and burn.

The next two are from Paperbackswap:

It was not long after she turned 40 that Rhonda Janzen's husband left her for someone he met on and she suffered a car accident that left her with serious injuries. To cope, Rhonda Janzen returned to where she never thought she would: the Mennonite home she left as a young woman.

Written with wry humor and huge personality—and tackling faith, love, family, and aging—Mennonite in a Little Black Dress is an immensely moving memoir of healing, certain to touch anyone who has ever had to look homeward in order to move ahead.


When single attorney Steven Creed becomes guardian of an orphaned five-year-old boy, he trades his big-city law firm for a ranch near his McKettrick kin in the close-knit community of Stone Creek, Arizona. Taking care of little Matt and fixing up his run-down ranch house with its old barn loosens something tightly wound inside him. But when Steven takes on the pro bono defense of a local teen, he meets his match in the opposing counsel—beautiful, by-the-book county prosecutor Melissa O'Ballivan. It'll take one grieving little boy, a sweet adopted dog and a woman who never expected to win any man's heart to make this Creed in Stone Creek know he's truly found home.

The last one I won from Alexia's Books and Such.  While I already read this one from my local library, I am very excited to be able to add it to my book shelf to keep!
