Mailbox Monday was originally hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page, but is now a traveling meme and for the month of May Mailbox Monday will be hosted by Marireads! Go over and visit her to see what she got in her mailbox.

This week I received an ER book from LibraryThing. Funny thing is, this is the book for April ER batch that just closed not 2 weeks ago and it's already here. I'm still waiting for my March ER book from LibraryThing. Go figure, anyway here's what I got.

Summer Wind: A Novel by Nancy Thayer

Heat Wave
by Nancy Thayer


Unerringly perceptive, superbly written, every page packed with the warmth and compassionate wisdom that have become Nancy Thayer’s trademark, Heat Wave tells the moving story of a woman who, after her seemingly perfect life unravels, must find the strength to live and love again.

Making the startling discovery that her family finances are in dire straits is only the latest shock endured by Carley Winsted after her husband’s sudden death from a heart attack. Resisting her in-laws’ well-meaning overtures to take in Carley and her two daughters, the young widow instead devises a plan to keep her family in their beloved home, a grand historic house on the island of Nantucket.

The solution is right at Carley’s front door: transforming her expensive, expansive house into a bed-and-breakfast. Not everyone, however, thinks this plan prudent or quite respectable—especially not Carley’s mother-in-law. Further complicating a myriad of challenges, a friend forces Carley to keep a secret that, if revealed, will undo families and friendships.

When her late husband’s former law partner keeps showing up at the most unexpected times, Carley must cope with an array of mixed feelings. And then, during a late-summer heat wave, the lives of Carley and her friends and family will be forever changed in entirely unexpected ways.

Lyrical, emotional, dramatic, and ultimately wonderfully uplifting, Nancy Thayer’s latest novel is compelling from its first page to its last.

This should be a good one!
