Since I like doing Library Loot also, In My Mailbox will only contain things I actually get in the mail or buy in the store.
I had an absolutely fabulous week!
Every Demon Has His Day (ARC) by Cara Lockwood
In her wildest dreams, Constance Plyd never thought she'd see dead people. Then again, she never thought she'd be hit on by her ex-husband at his own funeral...or be the prime suspect in his murder. Fortunately for Constance, irresistibly sexy sheriff Nathan Garrett wants to believe her explanation -- that a card-carrying demon in a black suit killed Jimmy in the garage -- or maybe he wants something more. Either way, all signs are leading to a showdown of hellish proportions, with Constance at the heart of the battle, when the Devil and would-be mother of the Antichrist (a pop princess wannabe) descends on Crockett County. Sure, she'd rather be cooking up a storm for the next state fair, but if she's going to be the Chosen One, at least Constance can give a few demons a Texas-style butt kicking....

Fairest of Them All by Jan Blazanin (ARC)
If life were a fairy tale, Oribella Bettencourt would have a "happily ever after" kind of future ahead of her. A Hollywood producer has come to Des Moines in search of a perfectly modern Princess Rapunzel, and Ori -- a model, dancer, and star of the beauty pageant circuit -- lands the part. And why shouldn't she? With her hardworking, self-sacrificing mother guiding her career, Ori is stunning, dedicated, poised...and then there's her hair. Breathtakingly lustrous blond hair that sets her apart from all the other girls at school. So what if she doesn't have any friends her age, or anyone to talk to other than her mother? She's on the verge of having everything she's ever dreamed of.
But in this fairy tale, the beautiful princess wakes up to her worst nightmare -- when almost overnight, Ori begins to lose her hair....

Things I've Learned From Women Who've Dumped Me
The Emmy award-winning former executive producer of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report has assembled a stellar lineup of men who have one thing in common: all have been dumped...and are willing to share their pain and the lessons learned. Relationships end. And in most cases, even the most callow among us, even men, learn something from the experience. Now in this smart, funny, and insightful anthology, some of our most impressive comedic and creative (male) minds, including Stephen Colbert, Nick Hornby, Andy Richter, Bob Odenkirk, Patton Oswalt, Dan Savage, adn Adam Schlesinger, share with us what they've learned from that all-too-universal experience: being dumped. Whether it be major life lessons, like "The Heart is a Choking Hazard," simple truths like, "A Dog is No Reason to Stay Together," or profound realizations like, "Persistence is for Suckers,"THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM WOMEN WHO'VE DUMPED ME is about that salient something men take away from failed relationships. Not a touchy-feely, self-help book, this extraordinary collection is packed with stories often painful, sometimes poignant, but always entertaining, from men you probably thought never got dumped -- or if they did, would never admit it.
