In My Mailbox - 3/27/10

Credit goes to The Story Siren for creating and hosting the In My Mailbox feature. Here are my new books for this week. I originally hadn't gotten anything at all and wasn't going to post this week but then I got some mail today!

Won:

Wish by Alexandra Bullen

For broken-hearted Olivia Larsen, nothing can change the fact that her twin sister, Violet, is gone... until a mysterious, beautiful gown arrives on her doorstep. The dress doesn't just look magical; it is magical. It has the power to grant her one wish, and the only thing Olivia wants is her sister back.
With Violet again by her side, both girls get a second chance at life. And as the sisters soon discover, they have two more dresses-and two more wishes left. But magic can't solve everything, and Olivia is forced to confront her ghosts to learn how to laugh, love, and live again.
In a breathtaking debut from Alexandra Bullen, WISH asks the question: If you could have anything, what would you wish for?


Bought:

American Girl: Missing Grace: A Kit Mystery by Elizabeth McDavid Jones

Kit writes a newspaper story about how her dog, Grace, saved her family and their boarders from a house fire. Grace becomes a local celebrity, and all the attention is a lot of fun for Kit, until the night Grace mysteriously vanishes. Who would take her beloved dog?


American Girl: Puzzle of the Paper Daughter: A Julie Mystery by Kathryn Reiss

When Julie discovers a mysterious note written in Chinese, she brings it to her friend Ivy to translate. The note promises great treasure, but it doesn't quite make sense—and Julie suspects it may be written in a secret code. Soon after, the girls' beloved dolls are stolen, and Julie can't shake the feeling that there's a connection between the stolen dolls and the mysterious note. Will Julie and Ivy find the treasure? And will they ever get their dolls back?


The Cowboy's Baby by Linda Ford

When he left two years before, Colby Bloxham was running from his past, and his pain. Now he's ready to face his responsibilities…and make some long-overdue amends to his baby daughter and the woman who took her in—Colby's former sweetheart, Anna Caldwell.
Anna is tired of trusting Colby—he's let her down too many times. And this time she's not about to let him hurt little Dorrie, too. He claims he's found faith, given up his reckless ways and wants to be a real father to his child. But does Anna have enough faith in his reformation to forgive…and risk her heart once more?


To Be a Mother by Cheryl St. John and Ruth Axtell Morren

Mountain Rose by Cheryl St.John: Teacher Olivia Rose knows what it's like to grow up alone and unwanted. But convincing reserved rancher Jules Parrish he can give his orphaned niece a real home won't be easy—unless Olivia seizes the chance of love and motherhood she never expected….
A Family of Her Own by Ruth Axtell Morren: War and tragedy destroyed Rianna Bruce's chance at happily ever after…or did it? Reuniting with her first love, Noah Samuels, proves that her feelings haven't gone away. In helping his young daughter, can Rianna show the disillusioned Noah the blessing of a second chance?
