Oh, the January slump is getting to me. We're smack in the middle of winter and I dream of the beach. Winters in Montreal are harsh and as I get older the lack of sunshine affects me more. I need a good book!

Don't forget to check out my giveaways on left sidebar.

One book in my mailbox:

This one is on tour in March and April with iRead Book Tours. If you're interested in reviewing it, let me know.



Visiting the Sins by Melanie Denman

In her riotous debut novel, Melanie Denman probes the silent sacrifices of motherhood with unflinching honesty and warmhearted amusement. Set in the Bible Belt of Deep East Texas, Visiting the Sins is a darkly funny story about mothers and daughters, naked ambition, elusive redemption, and all the torment it's possible to inflict in the name of family.

Down through the decades, the lofty social aspirations of the feisty but perennially dissatisfied Wheeler women - Pokey, the love-starved, pistol-packing matriarch; Rebanelle, the frosty former beauty queen turned church organist; and Curtis Jean, the backsliding gospel singer - are exceeded only by their unfortunate taste in men and a seemingly boundless capacity for holding grudges. A legacy of feuding and scandal lurches from one generation to the next with tragic consequences that threaten to destroy everything the Wheeler women have sacrificed their souls to build.
