Mailbox Monday #149


Good morning everyone! Hope you had a nice weekend – it was SOOO beautiful here.  But now we have to get back into the swing of the week – so what better way to kick off the week than with a review of the books we received in the past week!

Banquet of Lies

  • Banquet of Lies by Michelle Diener – I haven’t read any of Diener’s books yet, but I have two coming up for review (received via Netgalley for HFVBT tour). Here is the blurb:

“LONDON, 1812: Giselle Barrington is living a double life, juggling the duties of chef with those of spy catcher. She must identify her father’s savage killer before the shadowy man finds her and uncovers the explosive political document her father entrusted to her safekeeping.
Posing as a French cook in the home of Lord Aldridge, Giselle is surrounded by unlikely allies and vicious enemies. In the streets where she once walked freely among polite society, she now hides in plain sight, learning the hard lessons of class distinction and negotiating the delicate balance between servant and master.

Lord Aldridge’s insatiable curiosity about his mysterious new chef blurs the line between civic duty and outright desire. Carefully watching Giselle’s every move, he undertakes a mission to figure out who she really is—and, in the process, plunges her straight into the heart of danger when her only hope for survival is to remain invisible.”

What did you get this week?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of August it is being hosted by The Reading Fever.
