Oh my gosh! Some really great books there!!!

First - "Wildflower Hill" - the cover is adorable! and a giveaway?? YAY!

"The One That I Want" by Allison Winn Scotch - I read "Time of my Life" and while it did blow be away, I did like it, it will be interesting what you think of this book.

"Yankee Doodle Dixie" by Lisa Patton - This is the book I am really excited about! I read "Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter" and loved it! Her latest book is on my wish list and again I can't wait to read what you think.

Thanks for sharing all these future books with us!

You had a great week! I bought The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb the week it came out and haven't had a chance to read it yet. I hope you love all of your new books.

All of your titles sound good to me. The Taste of Salt has me curious! It was in quite a few mailboxes this week. I love the cover on Wildflower Hill. It is really beautiful! I think many of your books will be going on my wish list! Gotta love MM!

Haven't heard of any of these and would have skipped them in a bookshop. Looking forward to their reviews.

Oh, my gosh! I'm seriously jealous of this mailbox! Alice I Have Been, The One That I Want, The Taste of Salt - all on my wishlist! I DID read the eGalley of Wildflower Hill (review going up soon) - I think it's one that you'll like quite well! Enjoy all of the wonderful new reads!
