Mailbox Monday - May 31

I got 3 books in the past week!

Mrs. Mallory Investigates by Hazel Holt
I won this from Nan at
Thanks Nan!

From the cover:
That brash young woman called Lee Montgomery is no doubt marrying Charles Richardson for his money. That's the unequivocal conclusion of Sheila Malory's circle of friends. Despite their disapproval, Mrs. Malory answers Charle's plea for help when his unsuitable fiancee suddenly goes missing. Mrs. Malory, who is a no-nonsense English matron with a penchant for marmalade, ninteeth-century novels, and snooping, considers herself the quintessential reluctant amateur detective with a specialty in murder. Now, she feels chillingly sure that something dreadful has happened in this quiet seaside village of Taviscombe. It is her insatiable curiosity, after all, that leads her to discover the stranger waiting for the water's edge--and the shocking truths no one wants to face....

Small Change by Sheila Roberts
I won this author signed copy from Darlene at
Thanks Darlene. I got my book from the author which is signed "May all your small changes add up to a big difference!" Sheila

From Goodreads:
Take a trip to the charming little town of Heart Lake, and meet three best friends who you'll never forget . . .

Rachel, Jessica and Tiffany have money problems - major money problems. Tiffany's whipped out the plastic one too many times, and now a mountain of debt is about to come crashing down on her. Jessica's husband lost his job - thrusting this longtime stay-athome mom out into the cold, cruel workforce. And Rachel's divorce has transformed her from an upper-middle-class mom to a strapped-for-cash divorcee. What are three best friends to do?

Get financially fit, that's what! Together, they start a financial support group called The Small Change Club - challenging each other to bring balance back to their checkbooks, and their lives. Even though frugality is a lot harder than they ever imagined, these women are about to learn some very important lessons: that making a series of small changes in their spending habits can make a world of difference . . . and some things in life, like good friends, are truly priceless.

With money tips, recipes, and a great story, Sheila Roberts walks the average woman through today's rocky financial landscape.
