Mailbox Monday #39

Welcome to another Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Here's what I got in my mailbox, while I was out of town for a memorial service, which was beautifully done. I'm back now, and hope to get into the swing of things again and resume commenting on a regular basis.

Some of these were surprises.

1. B as in Beauty by Alberto Ferreras

2. Hungry Woman in Paris by Josefina Lopez
3. Houston, We Have a Problema by Gwendolyn Zepeda
4. The Disappearance of Irene Dos Santos by Margaret Mascarenhas
5. Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea
6. The Widow's Season by Laura Brodie from the author for review in October.
7. The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews

What arrived in your mailbox this week?

Don't forget my giveaway for Rubies in the Orchard by Lynda Resnick. Deadline is July 24.

I received the Latin Authors set last week too but I don't know where to start. I would love to read the Fixer Upper. I have heard some not so good things about B as in Beauty.
