Mailbox Monday is hosted for the month of March by chaotic compendiums. 

My mailbox for this week is again quite full. 

This is one book which proves that we really never know someone all that well though we may think we do!

Something Missing

This criminal doesn't walk away with diamonds or crystal or antique silver. He methodically will take toilet paper, chicken fillets, washing up powder and medication which he decants into containers he brings along with him. He will also come back again and again!!!

Tuscany is like Provence and Venice for me. I see it anywhere in a title and I have to have the book.


With Downton Abbey in the background of my mind and missing all the episodes being shown in Sri Lanka, I thought this was as close as I could get to DA!

A Place in the Country

Secrets between mothers and daughters. A beautiful setting and a wife betrayed by a philandering husband and how Caroline comes to grips with heartache and financial loss.

The meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Almost at the end of the Elanor Dymot book and just starting the Matthew Dicks one. Also a hundred pages into Ashendon. 

All the books I have picked up are based on fellow blogger's reviews and recommendations.

Getting to the weather, we had horrible hot weather and now it has become chilly and balmy and gorgeous!

Oh my goodness. Thanks to your post, I have just spent half an hour at Amazon reading the first 58 pages of Something Missing, and I am totally hooked. I must finish it now. Have to find it in the library. Thank you!

So many books! I hope you enjoy them all - my bluefire reader is having an issue so I haven't been able to start the book I wanted to but hopefully it's fixed today. :)

Have a wonderful week!
