Fresh-fiction-oct-2015-nuts

Nuts by Alice Clayton – Retail Value $16 (On Amazon for $8.98)

What a great coffee table book! (Just kidding! :))

Book Summary from Amazon:

Roxie Callahan is a private chef to some of Hollywood’s wealthiest, and nastiest, calorie-counting wives. After a dairy disaster implodes her carefully crafted career in one fell ploop, she finds herself back home in upstate New York, bailing out her hippie mother and running the family diner.

When gorgeous local farmer Leo Maxwell delivers her a lovely bunch of organic walnuts, Roxie wonders if a summer back home isn’t such a bad idea after all. Leo is heavily involved in the sustainable slow food movement, and he likes to take his time. In all things. Roxie is determined to head back to the west coast as soon as summer ends, but will the pull of lazy fireflies and her very own Almanzo Wilder be enough to keep her home for good?

Fresh-fiction-oct-2015-moms-club

The Single Undead Moms Club by Molly Harper – Retail Value $7.99 (On Amazon for $6.47)

Book summary from Amazon:

In the next book in Molly Harper’s Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Libby (a widow-turned-vampire) struggles with her transition, and finds out it sucks to be the only vampire member of the PTA…

Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It wasn’t the best idea she’s ever had, but she was desperate—she’s not about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.

On top of post-turning transition issues, like being ignored at PTA meetings and other mothers rejecting her son’s invitations for sleepovers, Libby must deal with her father-in-law’s attempts to declare her an unfit mother, her growing feelings for Wade—a tattooed redneck single dad she met while hiding in a closet at Back to School Night—and the return of her sire, who hasn’t stopped thinking about brave, snarky Libby since he turned her.

With the help of her new vampire circle, Libby negotiates this unfamiliar quagmire of legal troubles, parental duties, relationships, and, as always in Harper’s distinct, comedic novels, “characters you can’t help but fall in love with” (RT Book Reviews).

Fresh-fiction-oct-2015-christmas

Her Christmas Protector by Geri Krotow – Value $5.50

Book summary from Amazon:

Two female ministers have been shot in the heart of Silver Valley, Pennsylvania. Now Zora Krasny, navy veteran turned undercover operative, is posing as a new preacher. That means her life’s on the line, yet it’s the only way to smoke out a psychopath. But she’s not alone. She’s got the best of the Silver Valley P.D. at her side—Detective Bryce Campbell, the high school boyfriend Zora left behind when she joined the navy. Bryce must pose as her fiancé, so he can stay close and protect Zora. It’s a role they’re both finding way too easy to play. But with the killer’s imminent Christmas countdown, Zora and Bryce can’t afford any distractions.

This box also comes with book swag each month. And some e-books:

Fresh-fiction-oct-2015-cards

e-Books:

8 Weeks by Bethany Lopez – $.99

Tastes Like Murder by Catherine Bruns – $3.99

Killer Closet Case by Elizabeth Ashby & T. Sue Versteeg – $4.99

Verdict: This box has a value of about $31 (using Amazon’s sale prices), and that’s without putting a value on the swag items. I think that’s a good value for a book box, and I appreciate that they include a variety of paperback and ebook options – not everything is for me each month, but that Nuts book actually gets pretty good reviews, so I’ll give it a try!

What do you think of the October Fresh Fiction Box?

  1. I loooooove Alice Clayton!!! If you want to be introduced to her properly, start with Wallbanger!

  2. I cancelled this box. There was only one book if actually read unfortunately. I got the Alice Clayton book, but my other 2 were different. I might reconsider if they start offering signed books. I’m going to just stick with The Bookworm Box as I’m a huge fan of Colleen Hoover and the fact that the proceeds go to worthy charities.

  3. Really Nuts….like the little house on the Prairie reference
    Is there a sub for the suspense/detective genre that you know of Liz?

  4. Lmao! I SO need a supportive group of vampire housewives! These books sound so different I might have to try this subscription. And come-on, that Nuts book would make a great stocking stuffer.

    • Haha – I may need to re-gift Nuts just to see the reaction from an unsuspecting giftee! 🙂

    • I loved the Nuts coffee table comment. Also, the vampire PTA mom book sounds semi interesting… I’ll have to see what Goodreads says!

      ps: Wendy using any book as a stocking stuffer is a really really good idea! We usually do oranges, pomelos, chapstick, socks, and weird candy. I think my sister in law would get a kick out of Nuts in her stocking hehe…

  5. It’s always interesting to read what books you receive!
