Mailbox Monday - March 26

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

Can we just stop the week at Sunday? Oh, never mind, I'm a real estate agent and work most weekends. How about we stop at Tuesday. Tuesday is good. This Tuesday all I have to do is take my father-in-law to the doctor--which, for the record, takes all morning and then some. Between his doctors that are never on time and his decision not to eat much for breakfast simply so I have to take him out to get something, it's pretty much a spent day no matter how I slice it. I'm usually rushing to pick up the kids on time.

Last week was fairly hectic, but the spring market is coming and buyers are out there. I also have several closings coming up, so that lends itself to busy work.

No new books in my mailbox, but I did order myself a new one!!!! It should arrive in a couple of days.

What You Don't See Might Hurt You

Every year, residents of the small Amish community in Monte Vista, Colorado, look forward to the Ski Hi Stampede, the state's oldest professional rodeo. The rodeo is always good, clean entertainment for the hardworking farmers of the San Luis Valley. But this year, the Stampede turns deadly for one Amish man. Did rodeo fans see an unfortunate accident? Or something more sinister?

Amish bishop Henry Lapp is known far and wide for his uncanny ability to draw and remember the smallest details of anything he's seen, skills that have served him well in past investigations. He was at the rodeo that day. The problem? He didn't see Jason Scott's death.

With a murderer on the loose and members of his community being threatened, Henry must act fast. But can he solve a crime he didn't see? This time around, Henry will have to rely on his keen sense of human character and observation, skills he's honed in his role as bishop, if he hopes to crack the case.

What the Bishop Knows is a story of accepting our talents, putting one another first, and trusting that God will care for His children.

Can anyone recommend a good book on vegetable gardening? I'm looking for something that tells me what to plant when and next to what and how to combat diseases. Every year I plant pumpkins and they end up with some type of disease that kills them. It is so irritating. It's my own fault for trying to ignore the fact that I have the brownest thumb on the face of the planet.

That's it from me today. Hope you have a great week.


  1. Nice of you to help your FIL with his appointment! Your book looks good!

  2. Caregiving is time consuming and those doctor visits can be stressful too. Your father-in-law is lucky to have you! Enjoy your new book.

  3. That's exactly why I hate going to the doctor - it takes so much time for a short appointment. I hope things go well for your father-in-law.

  4. I'm totally on board for stopping the week on Sunday :)

    I hope you enjoy your reading this week :)

  5. Hope all goes well.

    ENJOY your books and your week.

  6. It takes special patience to be a caregiver.
    I like the look of Who the Bishop Knows. Happy Reading!

  7. Thanks for visiting, everyone. Think I finally caught up on stopping by your blogs.
