MAILBOX MONDAY:

This week, nothing came in the mail!  At all….but I downloaded a book for Sparky; a book that I can use in my Sequel Challenge.

Backseat Saints, by Joshilyn Jackson

Rose Mae Lolley’s mother disappeared when she was eight, leaving Rose with a heap of old novels and a taste for dangerous men. Now, as demure Mrs. Ro Grandee, she’s living the very life her mother abandoned. She’s all but forgotten the girl she used to be-teenaged spitfire, Alabama heartbreaker, and a crack shot with a pistol-until an airport gypsy warns Rose it’s time to find her way back to that brave, tough girl . . . or else. Armed with only her wit, her pawpy’s ancient .45, and her dog Fat Gretel, Rose Mae hightails it out of Texas, running from a man who will never let her go, on a mission to find the mother who did.

Starring a minor character from Jackson’s bestselling gods in Alabama, BACKSEAT SAINTS will dazzle readers with its stunning portrayal of the measures a mother will take to right the wrongs she’s created, and how far a daughter will travel to satisfy the demands of forgiveness.

  1. I have Backseat Saints but haven’t read it yet. I’ve read a couple of Jackson’s earlier books and really liked them. Have a great week, Laurel-Rain.

  2. So, your eReader’s name is Sparky. Cute! I happened to mention mine in my post today too. My Kindle’s name is Anne, named for my fave author, Anne Rice (and it’s my middle name 🙂 ).

    Looks like you’ve got some good ones coming up. I love the cover of Harbinger of Evil. Gorgeous!

    Enjoy your reading week!

  3. I hope you enjoy Jackson’s novel. I have read most of the books by this author, and was lucky enough to interview her and discuss Backseat Saints. As usual, I like a book even move after discussing it. I realize how much I missed!

    Have a wonderful week
