Mailbox Monday has returned home to Mailbox Monday’s site this year.
Only two books this week, one in my mailbox and one I purchased new.
Maggie and Jones live with their teenage son, Rick, in The Hollows, a small town outside of New York City. The cozy intimacy of the town is broken when Rick’s girlfriend, Charlene, mysteriously disappears. The investigation has Jones, the lead detective on the case, acting strangely. And Rick, already a brooding teenager, becomes even more withdrawn. Maggie finds herself drawn in both as a trained psychologist and as a mother. Determined to uncover the truth, Maggie pursues her own leads into Charlene’s disappearance and exposes a long-buried town secret – one that could destroy everything she holds dear.
And purchased new:
The most hated woman in Savannah, Georgia, is about to be set free. Twenty years ago, beautiful Blondell O’Henry was convicted of murdering her eldest daughter, Amity, and wounding her two other children. The prosecution argued that Blondell wanted to be rid of them to be with her lover. But Blondell’s son has now recanted his crucial testimony…
Reporter Nikki Gillette is determined to get the truth, and this time it’s personal. Amity was her childhood friend. The night she died, Amity begged Nikki to meet with her, insisting she had a secret to tell, but Nikki didn’t go. Now Nikki’s fiancé, Detective Pierce Reed, worries for her safety. Because somehow, the events of that tragic night connect to Nikki’s own fractured family.
Is Amity’s murderer still at large, or is there a new, darker danger? Soon Nikki will discover what really happened two decades ago, but the answers may come too late to save her life…
