Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan – Value $12
Book Summary from Amazon:
Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he’s out of a job, out of the public’s good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?
Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.
Each book is also signed by the author:
Honesty by Seth King – Value $13
Book Summary from Amazon:
A radiant story of first love and self-acceptance for fans of John Green, Jandy Nelson, and Rainbow Rowell “Maybe we weren’t meant to collide. Maybe we were meant to explode.” As a closeted teenager in the Deep South with a holy-roller father and the scars to prove it, bookworm Cole Furman has resigned himself to experiencing life and love only within the pages of his favorite novels. But after Nick Flores seems to walk off a page and starts to rewrite his story, Cole finds his dreams spinning into a dazzling – and complicated – reality. If you have ever found yourself on the wild breathless thriller ride that is first love, Honesty will rip you back again in screaming color.
Starving artist Lia Anderson makes a new friend at her seasonal job scoring academic proficiency tests. Desiree is a sassy, pocket-sized sexpot and owner of a larcenous beagle named Julia. Desiree also has a secret admirer who leaves her tiny figurines sculpted from twisted aluminum foil. The friendship falls afoul when the pair discovers a connection in their past, a secret Lia’s detective boyfriend, Peter Dourson, kept from her.
When Desiree is murdered, Lia not only winds up with the woman’s kleptomaniac beagle, she also inherits her stalker. On the outs with Peter and with the police on the wrong track, Lia will have to rely on her wits and her friends if she wants to stay alive.
If you enjoy a mystery that is both lighthearted and unpredictable, curl up with your furred-ones and Sneak Thief for a fun read.

Verdict: I’d recommend this box if you’re looking for a signed contemporary/new adult romance books and giving back with your purchase. It definitely isn’t going to be a high-value box, but I’m enjoying it.
This month’s box seems like a good fit for me since I’ve read and enjoyed some of Mia Sheridan’s other books, and Honesty gets great reviews, too. The Sneak Thief book seems a little out of place in this box, but I’ll give it a try!
Also good to know – the boxes vary per subscriber. Here is one other book that was sent out this month:
