Monday Memes

This post is my contribution to two different link-ups:  Mailbox Monday, in which bloggers share (or brag about) the new books that have entered their homes this week, and It's Monday, What Are You Reading, where we talk about what we've read or reviewed.  In short, going to the host post and clicking through to various blogs will give you a great variety of books that you just HAVE to read.

This week the mailman was very good to me. 

 He brought me:
Sisters of the Last Straw

The Sisters of the Last Straw and the Case of the Haunted Chapel is the first in a series of children’s books that convey the fun-filled story of a group of misfit nuns. These sisters and their madcap adventures teach the importance of tolerance and forgiveness. Each book focuses on the virtues of Gospel living and the frailties of human nature. While children delight in the humor and fast-paced exploits of this special group of nuns, they learn the need to be forgiving of the faults of others and to look for the good in all people. Children are enchanted and entertained with the humorous escapades of the characters while learning the importance of basic Christian values, growth, and love.  

The nice folks at Catholic World Publishing Group sent me this.  As their name implies, they are a publisher of Catholic books including the Lily Trilogy that I reviewed.  

Life Support (Grace Medical)

Nurse Lauren Barclay put her life on hold to keep a watchful eye on her troubled sister. It’s why she’s back in Houston. But that means confronting the brooding physician assistant who caused painful turmoil in her family—and left Lauren with memories her heart can’t forget.

PA and single parent Elijah Landry is no stranger to stormy relationships, including one with his father, who is threatening him with a restraining order. It won’t stop Eli from protecting his disabled brother—or from making peace with Lauren. He wants that and so much more.

But as Lauren and Eli draw closer, a powerful hurricane roars toward Houston. Survival instincts take priority and everything changes. Can hope weather the storm?

The Tyndale Blog Network sent me this, and Candace Calvert is a favorite author.  

I have a giveaway running through March 15:
