Mailbox Monday: March 8, 2010

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page where we share what reads we have received in our mailboxes the previous week.

Here are the goodies that arrived for me last week:

Silent Scream by Karen Rose (publicist contact)

"When a teenage girl dies in a suspicious fire, Detective Olivia Sutherland is assigned to track down the arsonist. Then she discovers something more sinister: a vicious blackmailer who preys on young people and murders without hesitation. Making her work even harder is sexy firefighter David Hunter. He's not only sharing the case but sparking memories of their long-ago night of passion, when feelings were left unspoken and hearts were broken.

David has his own ghosts, and a million regrets. But while he and Olivia try to face the wall of pain between them, a diabolical puppet master is pulling strings to make a group of twentysomethings do his bidding. Soon Olivia and David are scouring the city for a calculating criminal who seems tantalizingly close--and is moving in for the kill."

Objection! by Nancy Grace (purchased by me)

"The host of Closing Arguments on Court TV and Nancy Grace on CNN's Headline News takes on a host of controversial topics at the heart of the criminal justice system, including the imperiled jury system, the "blame-the-victim" defense, the death penalty, and the celebrity factor."

Make it Fast, Cook it Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking by Stephanie O'Dea (purchased by me)

"Make It Fast, Cook It Slow is the first cookbook from Stephanie O'Dea, the extremely popular slow cooking blogger: affordable, delicious, nutritious, and gluten-free recipes to delight the entire family.

In December 2007, Stephanie O'Dea made a New Year's resolution: she'd use her slow cooker every single day for an entire year, and write about it on her very popular blog. The result: more than three million visitors, and more than 300 fabulous, easy-to-make, family-pleasing recipes, including: Breakfast Risotto; Vietnamese Roast Chicken; Tomatoes and Goat Cheese with Balsamic Cranberry Syrup; Falafel; Philly Cheesesteaks; Crème Brulee

--and much more. Make It Fast, Cook It Slow is the perfect cookbook for easy, quick prep, inexpensive ingredients, and meals that taste like you spent hours at the stove."

So what goodies arrived in your mailbox last week?

I enjoyed Stephanie O'Dea's year long use of the crock pot. I read her blog every week. I should break down and get the cookbook. I hope you enjoy it!

Beth, Bermudaonion and Juju -
I have already tried a few recipes out of the cookbook. One I am absolutely in love with - - it's that delicious. Maybe I will post some of the recipes I try, along with my verdict here. What do you think?

Alayne, thank you for stopping by! I am dying to know what you thought of 31 Bond Street!

Diane, thank you for stopping by. I am so glad I found your blog today! And this will be my first Karen Rose book; it looks good!
